Canon PIXMA ‘sound sculptures’

Canon have some gorgeous new ads, by Dentsu London, for one of their printers that feature high speed macro photography of paint droplets vibrating on speakers.

There's also a flickr gallery of the shoot here.

Remed Art

French-born graffiti artist Remed is often labeled one of the hardest workers on the field. Take a look at the volume of work that he has produced in the last few years. He must never take a break.

I'm really enjoying how he mixes vintage illustration styles with a contemporary flavour.

Art Of Light And Dark

Some very interesting installations based on the interplay of sculpture, light and shadow by Kumi Yamashita, a Japanese artist based in New York. There's also a piece that required some painstaking manipulation of a single thread...

Moonlight (long version)

Tinderboxers all,

This is the long version of that OneSecondFilm we made last week.

Does it take too long to load? Should I upload a smaller version?

Big or small, I hope you like it!

new drawing

Its been ages since I've posted anything here! Here's one of the many drawings I've started and then put aside unfinished lately. Hopefully I'll get new work going soon...

Arcade Fire video

Have a look at Arcade Fire's new interactive music video. I'm not sure if I really love it, but its an interesting technique :)

for elida

I am posting this lovely animated drawing for us all really :D

Its by the argentinean illustrator die dié
oh my goodness flickr has me entranced today !!

One Second Film: Moonlight


I am still quite bad at keeping up with Tinderbox, but here you are: the latest crop of our weekly animation meet. I think it doesn't really work, there is too much movement involved, three different actions narrated in one second. I think I have to show just one.
So, I think you will see a second version soon.
In the meantime, howwwwwwwl!

By the way, Damo, fantastic austronaut cartoon. Great indeed.
My internet connection is too weak to see the film you posted, but I will try!
