I just love this type of animation. So smooth and pleasant to watch.
Building the Web Together
Not that I wasn’t motivated before, but wow this got me extremely motivated to learn more about web development.
I was testing out some cloud brushes I made in Photoshop last night and went little crazy with them. Each drawing was done under an hour. I will be making a tutorial plus download to the brushes after I finish the next Fisheye Placebo strip :)
Windows Of New York
New York based graphic designer Jose Guizar latest project.
The Windows of New York project is a weekly illustrated fix for an obsession that has increasingly grown in me since chance put me in this town. A product of countless steps of journey through the city streets, this is a collection of windows that somehow have caught my restless eye out from the never-ending buzz of the city. This project is part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up. - Jose Guizar
On a casual visit to the city of Hong Kong, Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze became enamored with the sheer size of some of the city’s skyscrapers. Since Hong Kong has so many people in such a small area, they’ve had to look towards the skies.
Romain’s pictures seem to perfectly capture that feeling of gazing upwards at the towering structures.

Wow I need to do this sometime.
Especially liking the simple yet creative “carrot” typography. I’m also digging the “mango” font.
Browser Extension App of the Day: Secretbook
Built as an Oxford University research project, Secretbook is a Chrome app that utilizes steganography to allow Facebook users to hide secret messages in their photo uploads. 21-year-old creator Owen Campbell-Moore released a draft of his algorithm on April 7th, detailing how he replicated Facebook’s photo compression in order to encode messages within the images.
This inspired me to create my own very simple program to store messages within photos, but I then realized it’d be pointless for me since I’ve never sent any message that was so secretive. I guess it could be a way to store passwords and such though.
Day 467 - April 11th, 2013
Inspiring sketches. I need to learn how to choose better color pallets like this. It greatly impacts and makes clear what is being depicted. Until then, I guess I’ll resort to color websites where people have created pallets to work off of already.
