Head over to Your Face Blog, email Damien Weighill, and he’ll draw your face! Maybe your face will even get published in his zine! Damien just posted face illustration #265 – that’s dedication. I snooped around the site and found a link to his portfolio (CSI should hire me), some really great work over there too.
I briefly mentioned Radar Music Videos back in May. If you’d love a shot at directing music videos but don’t want to spend the next 5 years of your life getting people coffee on a film set, Radar is for you. Filmmakers pitch for commissions and labels get videos tailored to their budget. Perfect symbiosis! I was browsing the “top rated” section and came across this excellent video:
Pegz – What would Happen – Directed by Callum Cooper. Further proof that Radar has a good thing goin’.
If I wrote a book called “Things I have learned in my life so far” one of the statements would be “Make sure you’re having fun!” If you’re waiting until later to enjoy life I got news for you – later will never come! Go to the park right now and make a slip & slide. Thanks to my buddy Cody and his partner in crime Alex over at DiscoVietnam for reminding me what it’s all about!
If you told me your name was Justin Lee Williams, naturally I would assume you were either the prime suspect in a political assassination plot or you were a supremely talented illustrator from Australia. Lucky for us (and the president) Justin is the latter. Keep your eye on this gentleman, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to wake up tomorrow and see him gracing the cover of Juxtapoz.
It’s Christmas in August thanks to Neo2. They’re sharing a whole bunch of fonts (some better than others) all of which are totally free! Mac/PC! I picked out at least 10 that don’t suck! Head on over there, click on an image and then hit “ACEPTAR” to download. They even have a font based off the lasertype I featured awhile ago!
Some funny little sports caricatures by Jesse Hora. He says they are inspired by the players’ names, his childhood memories of them, and info ganked from wikipedia.
I just realised that the active project thumbnail is also a middle finger right now too haha – I gotta do something about that, this place is looking a little too negative.
The Thief and the Cobbler is quite possibly the best animated film ever made and most people still haven’t ever seen it – unless you went to school for animation, in which case you have a burned copy of this on your desk somewhere. The Thief and the Cobbler holds the record for the longest film production EVER at 31 years. Canadian animator Richard Williams (animation director of Who Framed Roger Rabbit) spent 26 years of his life trying to get his film completed only to have another company assume control of it and “finish” it without him. You can read the full story here.
Last year this cut of the film surfaced on the net. A fan, Garrett Gilchrist, actually cut this together using footage from the various versions of the film that had been released, as well as clips from an original uncut workprint. The result is a version of the film closest to Williams’ original. This is only Part 1 – you can view the entire film on youtube.
