    I really liked the last one, before I realized that the man sitting on the bench is NOT the same man that is hugging the girl… However, why not? Why cant he be? Maybe he IS the same man, but in the future? If so, If the artist WANTED to capture this idea, wow. Wow. Wow is all I can say because that paints SO many pictures beyond this image in my own imagination, my own mind. Beautiful paintings, the whole lot. But that last one, before I saw the different shirts, before I realized it might not be the same man, wow, I was wondering just what the man is thinking while he sits reflectively on the bench, watching the memory of himself hugging that woman. Was he having an affair? Has he fallen out of love with her? Does he only love her mind, but find her body unattractive, or repulsive, the reason why only her top half is present in the painting? Did his wife lose her body in combat? Does she have lou gehrig’s disease, and is she losing control of her bodie’s muscular system? ALL of these paintings really make you wonder what was the artist’s original idea? WHY this, HOW COME that? Beautifully rendered, wonderfully intricarte and forever interesting. 🙂 I wish I werent living on a working boy’s income, because I’d give a toe for a print of that last painting. Beautiful! Bravo! 🙂

    LOOK, at.. FEEL- the fat pockets of the businessman as he walks away from the bench of homeless drunks, addicts, life-losers, etc.. SEE the older man, looking back at his past, his youthful memories of himself at different times through his life, atop his NYC apartment complex roof… How riveting, the couple whom met in modern day combat in the middle east, and lost their limbs together, but they attempt to live normal lives.. The American Dream. The man stumbling and falling UP the stairs, was once a respectable stock trader on wall street, but his addictive personality got the best of him, and he can now be seen stumbling around the subway stations, drunk on what little money he has left of his *once* millions. My silly little interpretations after taking another look. Thank you, artist, for sharing these with us. They are truly beautiful and imagination and thought provoking! 🙂 They are wonderful!

    There is something strangely sinister about these works. I like it.

  • lepetitfaon

    These are almost painful to look at especially the first five, really loved all the interpretations offered above!

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.
