Giveaway: Dan Climan “Flash” Towel by Slowtide

We’ve got a great giveaway this week courtesy of the folks at Slowtide. They’ve teamed up with Montreal-based artist Dan Climan to make a towel featuring some of his flash artwork.

I’m a big fan of Dan’s work (you may recall the best tattoo design of all time, and the best sign in Vancouver) and I’m stoked on his art space focused on screen prints called The Ladder Place. What I’m trying to say is I love this towel.

If you want to snag the towel leave a comment and describe a tattoo you would love to get from Dan. We’ll pick a winner in two weeks. More images of the towel and a video clip about the project below!

5 Questions You Must Answer (or die)

Here is this week’s discussion post where I ask 5 questions and you answer them (I answer them too). Last week I asked for suggestions for future questions so this first question comes from Kara Rubenstein:

 

The Questions

1 – If you wrote a “For Dummies” book, what would the official title be?

2 – What’s the best news you heard in a long time?

3 – What’s the most famous movie you’ve never seen?

4 – Share a recipe for something you like to make/eat.

5 – Related or unrelated to 4 – you open a restaurant today, what kind of food is it and what’s the name?

Fabio Tonetto

 

Despite the explosion of filters, stickers and face-swapping apps it’s rare to come across a selfie that feels genuinely inspired. Enter Pictoplasma. Already a leading force in character design and art through their numerous conferences and academies, Pictoplasma has teamed up with Adobe Project 1324 to invite youth (aged 18-24) from around the globe to put creativity back into focus!

Simply start with a regular headshot or profile picture, then re-create a new self-portrait that puts your unique (inner) personality on display. Any medium or tool may be used: drawing, collage, digital painting, vector illustration, 3D graphics, masks, costume design… (or all of the above).

Deadline for submissions is August 15. The first 100 participants will be eligible to win one of ten year-long Creative Cloud subscriptions, donated by Adobe. Of all the entries, 5 winners will be selected to receive a full Pictoplasma Character Design fellowship. This includes travel costs and participation at the Pictoplasma Academy masterclass in Mexico City (October 2017), six-months of online mentoring and attendance at the Pictoplasma Berlin Conference (May 2018) —- including the opportunity to exhibit in an exclusive group show.
