RIP, Leonard Nimoy

So long, Mr. Spock
Arts • Views: 10,401

Today we have to say goodbye to the man who breathed life into Star Trek’s Mr. Spock, one of the most memorable characters in the history of television — the great Leonard Nimoy.

President Obama pays tribute:

“Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed.” Hmm, that sounds kind of familiar.

Fantastic Four Reboot: The Official Teaser Trailer

Right wing freakout imminent
Arts • Views: 19,356

As a kid, the Fantastic Four were my favorite Marvel characters, but the recent films weren’t really that great. So I’m glad to see a reboot in the works, with an apparent emphasis on the science fiction angle that attracted me to the Fantastic Four in the first place — and we can also look forward to a right wing freakout, because in this version the Human Torch is… black.

And speaking of right wing freakouts, first out of the racist gate is our boy the Ginger Avenger.

Right — because there are so few white men in the movies these days.

Hilarious Short: El Terror - Wrath of a 4-Year Old

We all scream
Arts • Views: 32,768

A funny New Year’s Day short from a Canadian artist/animator who goes by “Franco.”

In the wild Sonoran desert, the greatest criminal of the Far-West suffers the wrath of a four years old child after stealing her ice cream cone.

I animated this with Toonboom Harmony, and did my backgrounds in photoshop. I used After Effects for compositing, and Adobe Audition for sound.
Huge Thank you to Léa Sanacore for the amazing music (leasanacore.com ),

The Most Unusual and Twisted Short Film Since Eraserhead: “Self-Assembly”

So many trigger warnings I can’t even
Arts • Views: 28,359

Vimeo

I just discovered this amazing and unsettling short film by Ray Sullivan on Vimeo, and at first I actually hesitated to post it because it’s … disturbing. In some ways, it’s reminiscent of David Lynch’s weird classic “Eraserhead.” But with more realism and more goo.

Bereaved parents find a monstrous substitute for their dead son.

Directed by Ray Sullivan
Written by Garret Shanley
Based on the comic strip story & characters created by Gar Shanley & Cathal Duggan
Shot on location in Dublin, Ireland.

Video: A Master Class in Logo Design From Aaron Draplin

Graphics
Arts • Views: 30,439

Vimeo

As a graphic design geek from way back, I thoroughly enjoyed this short documentary about the creative process of a true maestro.

Watch more like this at lynda.com.

Most logos aren’t designed in fifteen minutes, but most designers aren’t Aaron Draplin. Aaron’s a Portland fixture by way of the Midwest, the owner of Draplin Design Co., and an advocate of “blue collar” design: design that works. Here he takes our logo design challenge, creating a dozen iterations of a logo for a fictional construction company. Not inspired? Just wait. Watch as he sketches, brings his ideas into Illustrator, and tests and tunes the different iterations. The logos Aaron creates prove design can elevate any company or brand. Along the way, he provides tips for freelancing, finding inspiration, and providing clients context for logos that won’t just live in PDFs.
