Levi Mandel

Levi Mandel photographs unsuspecting subjects, and then crumples and re-photographs the printed images. These instantly reminded me of works by Christiane Feser.

    I like that you aren’t afraid to point out similarities or rip offs between artists. Thanks for being real Jeff.

  • i just want to make it clear i wasn’t suggesting anyone ripped anyone off – these just reminded me of the work Feser and it is likely there are other artists exploring this simple idea.

  • Oye

     Similarities and rip offs are two VERY different ideas, Colbyedwards. These photographs are yes, similar to those of Feser, but far from a rip off. Stylistically, the only thing that the two works actually have in common is the idea of crumpled portraits.
    Feser’s images are pulled from magazines, Mandel’s are his own. Feser
    folds her portraits in an organic manner, Mandel folds his
    realistically.

    • yea i dont think colby was suggesting they were rip-offs but i just wanted to make sure it was clear i wasn’t – im not in the habit of doing that sort of thing

      thanks for the comments, although there are similarities they are definitely exploring different ideas

      • Colbyedwards

        Yeah I wasn’t suggesting a ripoff or saying that you were, I just really dig that you can call it out when necessary, Or give another artist credit as well. Everyone deserves credit weather its new or re-explored. By the way i really dig both artists work. And I think they are both being original in their own way.

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
