Last night I was reading about 1950′s animation in Cartoon Modern and it mentioned some of the amazing modern animators coming out of Europe that were vastly different than the standard 19th century “Disney” style that was so prevalent in the US. One such animator was Ivan Ivanov-Vano whom collaborated with the likes of Shostakovich and Stravinsky. Take a moment today to watch Seasons by Ivan Ivanov-Vano , while it wasn’t produced in the 50′s and it isn’t the exact video I was looking for with the Shostakovich score, it’s still absolutely gorgeous. Enjoy!
Behance just published a new working tool that helps manage your projects both online, mobile and off. It is based on their books with the same name… the Action Method. A great tool for those who have to keep a lot of tasks organized.
Noticed some updates from those smoke-in-the-forest people, HELMO. Love the Jazzdor stuff.
Lettercutting — a grand job, the grandest in the world. What could be better? If you’ve never cut letters in a good piece of stone, with hammer and chisel, you can’t know.
MyFonts interviews Eric Gill for April installment of Creative Characters feature. How lucky are we in this era of typographic design to have so much technology available to us. It’s always good to be reminded what we take for granted and to consider how that technology manifests itself in our designs. Link
The Narrows is a contemporary art space hosting local, national and international artists located in Melbourne. They have a poster available on their site for download for every exhibition. Some lovely work you should go and check out.
Just got back from the Andrew Holder show at Subtext. Amazing show, something different in Andrew’s work than your average 60′s folk art revivalist, something happy and wonderful. If you live in the San Diego/Los Angeles area you definitely need to come out and see for yourself. I just wish I was rich so I could have bought everything at the show. Definitely a new favorite of mine.
