This is ridiculous, it's a short film where every frame is a painting. The idea being when you pause the film you are confronted with a painting. It's 5 minutes long and made up of over 6000 paintings painted over a 2 year period.

Just saw this little short animation that I thought was amazing. Goes to show that the art itself doesn't have to be refined and polished for it to be effective and awesome.

Can't say im really impressed by them... sure theyre great but not really amazing imo. Anyways I tend to like more free stuff.

Seeing as this thread has been dusted off I'll just share some of my bookmarks with you:
Designers Go To Heaven: updated daily, lots of amesome illustration/design stuff with links to the source if you want to see more from a certain collection/artist
50Watts: Galleries of "Book-related design and illustration" hard to describe but definitely worth checking out.

both of these blogs are regularly updated so they are definitely worth checking out at least on a weekly basis. I particularly love how they showcase a wide variety different of art/illustration/design, so that you see stuff you wouldnt normally look for.

Recently I came across THIS site. I think it's pretty dope.

Any picture I put here won't do justice to the high quality .gifs they have there since the sizes are so limited here, but I encourage everyone to check it out, especially the movie buffs we have around here.


This sig is 100% effective protection from all hexes, curses, evil spirits and bad karma. Guaranteed.

Here's a pair of talks I find inspirational- thanks Lucky for showing me the first one. Both are good for encouraging me to stop being lazy and make stuff.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WApcUBcVM os - Legendary animation director, Ralph Bakshi discusses how he survived the collapse of theatrical animation and offers tips to current animators for how to succeed in the cartoon business.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eA8XiC3m7 vw Amanda Palmer gives a commencement speech to The New England Institute of Art's Class of 2011.

Neither are visually stimulating, so i'll try to find you something more impressive next time

I came, I came hard all over my desk....
I really liked the book sculptures and the Wire scribbles.
Also that whale sculpture in the forest was pretty rad....

I'm going to get a box of tissues and have a very, very fun night...

Yeah, they're both nice to look at, but this isn't an image dump. If you can't include some sort of info... a link to the original piece on the artist's site ...or even their name, fcol! ...then please don't post it here. Keep it as a pretty picture on your hard drive or user page.

Thanks ;)

I liked it. It really shows that humans are much more fluid than you'd originally think.
Also, on a side note, why do I get the feeling that all the bendy-tumbly stuff is what Jess does at the circus?

It is similar. We don't usually have too many floor routines though, being an aerial group. I'm a tiny bit more flexible and a whole lot less graceful and capable of dancing than these guys.

This is fascinating- I don't know if the choreography would be so effective without the fancy editing and the pretty lighting/music, but the combination makes most of the wonkiness work.

Now 'scuse me, I need to watch this over and over move by move to see how much of it I can do.
