Eyvind Earle

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. #

NERDpillo

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. #

Notes On Blindness

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. #

Abandonauts - Adam Atomic

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. #

Vote For Pedro 10th Anniversary Art

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. #

Squadron Graphics, Inc. - T-37B "Tweet"

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. #

2010.04.11 The Wizard of Oz - Novelization Book Art

The Wizard of Oz - Novelization Book Art

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. #

Crayons Carved As The 12 Chinese Zodiacs

Some very cool carvings by Diem Chau. What a great material to work with, and I love the intricacy of each piece. #

2009.11.12 Blind Preview - Volvo S60 - YouTube

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. #

2009.11.04 Art Deco UP Posters -- Ain't It Cool News

Art Deco UP Posters -- Ain't It Cool News

Very cool posters created and released by Pixar. Like the author, I prefer the final piece. Careful clicking on those pictures. The files they link to are HUGE for random website links (15 MB). #
