Another great job by director/producer Bas Berkhout. The second instalment of the online documentary series, InFrame, features award-winning graphic artist, Pâté (a.k.a. Paul Pateman). Watch Pateman discuss what motivated him to quit his job as a creative director to pursue his passion as an independent illustrator, as well as his thoughts on his own work, and the allure of simplicity when surrounded by chaos. More images of Pateman’s work and full video below.
Back in 2012 I posted about Thomas Poulsom’s Lego birds, and at that time he was hoping Lego would one day turn his creations into an official set via the Lego Ideas platform. Well that day has finally come! As of January 1st, Thomas’ set of birds is available over on Lego’s website.
The video below shows Thomas’ original idea, a set of British Birds: a puffin, a kingfisher, a woodpecker, a blue tit, a goldfinch, and a robin. You can see lots of images of this series on Thomas’ Flickr page. The set that Lego ended up producing includes a robin, a bluejay, and a hummingbird.
Congratulations Thomas! See the finished set and the video below.
