I've been watching way too many episodes of Simpsons lately and well, here's some more Simpsons in pixel form by Paul Robertson and Ivan Dixon.
Lego had released a couple concepts early on but I still have yet to see any made. Consider this my plea, Lego. I would like to give you my money in return for a Tardis to build. Thanks!
Check out this new official full length trailer of Doctor Who series 8! I can't wait!
After attending AX this year, it is no wonder why I went on a search for a new anime to watch. To be honest, I much rather read manga, but based on the little time that I have to myself recently, I've resorted to watching anime instead of looking around for scans.
I have a soft spot for mecha manga/anime, probably because one of my favorite and first anime as a kid was Gundam Wing. So I was quite elated when I stumbled upon Knights of Sidonia. If you are like me and have an affinity for large robots that battle one on one with big alien monsters, this is a good one to watch. Then again, I may be late to the band wagon and you probably have already watched this. Regardless of that, it is still a great anime that I have engorged myself with. Time to find a kit of this online to build.
August is approaching! I cannot wait!
Fox's new series Gotham, the city before there was Batman.
Evian made an ad featuring Spiderman and a baby version of himself to promote healthy living as well as the Amazing Spider-Man 2. Pretty epic if you ask me.
Adobe approached Sagmeister&Walsh to make an interpretive graphic of their logo, and of course Stefan Sagmeister and Jessica Walsh, being the people that they are, decided to make it into a fun 5 part game show series. You also might recognize the people on the judges panel such as Stefan Bucher, Jessica Hische, Joshua Davis, and Noreen Morioka.
They definitely played up on the game show idea as well as the Reality TV feeling. All I know is that this is very, very entertaining and that I really want those giant post it notes.
Part 1 and Part 2 are below...
Ross MacDonald has an awesome job! He has been working on the HBO show Boardwalk Empire for 4 seasons, designing and fabricating props. He's made...
Nucky's desk checkbook and passport, Agent Van Alden's drivers licence and evidence tags, Al Capone's rap sheet, Jimmy Darmody's death certificate, Arnold Rothstein's calling card, pocket notebooks for many of the characters, coloring books, magazines, photo albums, catalogs, tickets, telegrams, agent ID's, maps, deeds, life insurance policies, medical charts, a newspaper, books, letters, bushels of legal papers, files and forms, and hundreds of other props.
Boardwalk Empire is an HBO show period piece set during the 1920's Prohibition era in Atlantic City. It is definitely one of my favorite shows, too bad I'm extremely behind. Regardless of whether I'm caught up on the show or not, MacDonald's attention to detail is awe-inspiring. He explains how he spends the majority of his time researching for his props, "trolling through massive archives to find 1922 New Jersey drivers lisences..." even though these props sometimes only get milliseconds of screen time.
It may seem to be a cumbersome task for just little return, but if you really dig a bit deeper and look at it from a designer's point of view, the reward is actually quite great! You have the satisfaction of knowing you created something that could be mistaken as something left behind from that period. I guess the best way to explain it is that it's a kind of designer 'high.'
Artist Hoang Tran, from Sunnyvale, California, brings pop art and nostalgia together in one fell swoop! I love his tiny intricate carvings of popular icons from movies and television like Game of thrones, Starwars, Doctor Who and various anime characters. Watch the time-lapse video to see the process of carving Finn the Human!
Don't take this art form lightly either! Carving on such a small and brittle material is no easy feat.
It's Christmas Eve! That means tomorrow is the Doctor Who Christmas who special! Whose excited? I am! It's time to see the new face of the Doctor.
Sherlock is back! Thank you Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss for these wonderful minisode extras! Remember to set your DVRs, tivos or whatever you got for Jan 1, 2014!
