Rich Pellegrino

Recently while looking at the work in the Gallery 1988 exhibit "Is This Thing On?" I saw some work from Rich Pellegrino. I really like his use of color and texture. Anyway he's got some great stuff you can see more here.

Illustration Friday: Chicken

I remember once, when I was a kid, we spent an afternoon climbing up and then jumping off the roof. I didn't really want to. Not because I was afraid of heights, but that I was afraid of broken bones. Peer pressure being such a persuasive tool however, I jumped.

The Real Problem With China. "For the United States, the No. 1 problem with China’s economy is probably intellectual property theft. Technology companies, for example, continue to notice Chinese government agencies downloading software updates for programs they have never bought, at least not legally"An informative article indeed.

Opening Title Sequence for "Scott Pilgrim vs the World"

I saw "Scott Pilgrim vs the World" when it came out a few months back, and I really enjoyed it. Today I read a post from Art of the Title, that has renewed my interest. Watching the opening credits once again reminded of all that the film has to offer. In the post they interviewed the director and designers behind the opening to the film. I found the shot shown above, the couch being pulled back, to be interesting considering what it took to accomplish. It was great to get some background on the credits as well and why they took the approach they did. To watch the opening click here.

Illustration Friday: Deja-vu

After reading more about what deja-vu is, it became apparent that there are basically two schools of thought: Deja-vu is your brain getting things mixed up or deja-vu is something beyond what science can really explain. So which is it?

I was trying to capture that moment when you debate whether what you see is indeed something you've seen before and what it's like to remember dreams: fuzzy.
