The blogmistress is officially tipping her hat to the multi-talented Laura Tallardy – her recent blog post is indeed EPIC, with phenomenal explanations of the processes behind her latest project, “Princess Birthday Party Puzzles” – not to mention a fantastic collection of imagery and gifs to really give the reader a sense of how this massive project ultimately came together. WOW.
Take a look here for a really spectacular behind the scenes – you’ll be so happy that you did!
Judith Drews has created some adorable ‘paper dolls,’ but with a modern twist – nope, she’s not doing apps like Laura Tallardy, but rather she and her client, Kleine Gestalten, have improved upon the original analogue versions by turning them into magnets!
Now kids can do what kids do best – play rough – with total impunity! What a cute idea.
We recently announcedValeria Petrone’s adorable new app, “Buona Notte Dada,” but there’s an adorable little update we’re very excited to share – click here and check out the short video that shows these little dudes in action! You’ll be so happy that you did.
It is a good day when so many wonderful illustrations are honored that you accidentally overlook another talented MGI’er. Our apologies to Sylvie Daigneault, who was also recently recognized by the 3×3 Pro Show.
Sylvie’s beautiful “Mutation” series received a ‘merit’ in the gallery category:
The illustrious 3×3 Pro Show has announced the medalists/winners/champions/heroes of their latest context, and we are very proud to announce that a few talented MGI’ers have been selected/chosen/appointed once again!
Followers of Rick Tulka’s life and work are undoubtedly familiar with the fact that the prolific artist has been a longtime regular of Parisian Brasserie “Le Select,” hanging out at ‘his’ table while sketching other patrons:
So it’s perfectly fitting that the famous establishment would ask Rick to illustrate their new menu:
Oh la la! The new design totally embodies Parisian charm and sophistication – bravo, Rick!
What a tremendous opportunity for animators and aspiring animators alike – Pixar has recently announced that it will be releasing its in-house rendering software, RenderMan, to the public for download, free of charge.
RenderMan has been used in the films Toy Story and Wall-E and at $500 a pop for commercial use, this generous release is particularly wonderful news for the starving artist set or the endlessly frugal.
