1. Fashion Fridays ~ Katie Woodger

    The next instalment of our weekly ‘Fashion Fridays’ showcases some of Katie Woodger’s illustrations. The nice details in the fabrics are lovely, and the bright colours on white really stand out as modern and edgy. She is currently pursuing teaching, and we wish her every success.

  2. History of 3d-Animation & CGI

    In less than 40 years, CGI & 3D graphics have moved from a mere twinkle in the eye to become one of the most popular creative industries in the world. Each year we are seeing more and more 3D and Special effects enhanced movies appearing on our cinema screens. 3D generated illustration, movies and advertising has now become the dominant force in comparison to traditional art-working methods.

  3. Obsessive Consumption: What Did You Buy Today?

    Kate Bingaman Burt is an illustrator who lives in Oregon in the US. She has been drawing something she has purchased everyday since February 5th, 2006. There is something intrinsically nice about her short-hand doodles and I just love her hand drawn typography.

  4. The Rhodes Brothers

    I remember many many moons ago when I was first privy to the internet I used to spend hours (mainly due to the 56k dial-up modem) looking for new illustrators. I was lucky enough to stumble on Matt and Tom Rhodes and fell in love with their work. I would do character line-ups just like Matt’s, and I’m sure I stole a costume idea or two. Nowadays their work is more beautiful than ever, and still just as inspiring.

  5. The Eisner Awards 2011

    To be honest I haven’t seen or read a lot of the work that has won awards this year. But that’s exactly why I like to hear about the Eisner Award winners. I can find great work that I otherwise wouldn’t have seen. This year, ‘The Marvelous Land of Oz’ by Skottie Young stood out to me, as did ‘It Was the War of the Trenches’ by Jacques Tardi. Winner of the Best Limited Series award ‘Daytripper’ also looks interesting. Head over to the SDCC website to see all the winners, it’s a great list.

  6. Jean-François (2009)

    Today we have a beautiful short film directed by Bruno Mangyoku and Tom Haugomat. It’s quite sombre, though there are some quite funny moments too. Like when the protagonist steps out of the car in a suit (but he’s still wearing his swimming cap!)
