I really like these paintings by Hide Kawanishi. Takayuki Kita went through the pains of visiting each of the sites, and taking photos from each place, to see what they look like now. Hide's style feels both classic, and new all at the same time. It's worth looking at each painting. There is so much I like, but here are a few call-outs: the framing of #77, the subtle reflection in #48, the perspective and story of #52, the colors of #98. I could keep going. Really, he seemed to show a great attention to detail - both on what to include and exclude.
I wish the page was better, so you could see thumbnails of all the paintings... but at least we get to see them. #
I had never heard of Eyvind Earle until the other day, but I really like his style. Great work on his shadows, and a simple approach that still conveys realism. I think this piece (called Path in Snow)w, in particular, is gorgeous. So perfect. #
Although I prefer the awesomeness of SpriteStitch.com, and the endless supply of patterns (not to mention helpful people), NERDpillo has made it one step closer to being done, by gathering all the supplies you'll need to actually make one of those awesome video game map cross-stitches. #
John Hull, a writer and theologian, became completely blind in 1983. He kept a diary on an audiocassette. This film is a dramatization of some of of his words and thoughts. I loved it, and feel like it's a shame I didn't see it closer to its original release. I'm going to eagerly devour the story and additional material behind it. #
Adam "Atomic" Satlsman (of Canabalt fame) put these files out the other day for any/all to use. I'm not a game developer, nor do I ever intend to be, but some part of me wants to hang on to these files... just in case I might need them for something. #
I would love it if there were actual prints of this. Napoleon Dynamite is one of my favorite movies, and was blown away to realize it's been 10 years since it was released. This particular piece is slightly in the style of Shepard Fairey, or old communist propaganda. No matter what, I love it. #
Seeing a picture/illustration of one of these brings back so many childhood memories. It's not the world's most impressive plane, nor is it even in service any more, but it's an amazing aircraft for how it contributed to my life. #
A wonderful collection of mock book art for a novelization of The Wizard of Oz. If you can get visually past the weird animated graphics on the page, you'll see just how awesome the work is. #
Some very cool carvings by Diem Chau. What a great material to work with, and I love the intricacy of each piece. #
Esref Armagan, blind since birth, and an artist, is asked to draw/paint the new Volvo S60. It's humbling and inspiring to see a man who emphasizes his strengths to accomplish something that others would find impossible. #
