Officially passed the point of being able to refer to these as music videos. Whatever Florence Welch and director Vincent Haycock are creating is just getting bigger. Check out the 4th (“Queen of Peace”) and 5th (“Long and Lost”) instalments from How Big How Blue How Beautiful below!
Japanese animator Hiraoka Masanobu returns with another mind-melting surreal feast for the eyes. Masanobu’s style is so recognizable now and yet the films remain as unpredictable as they always were. Watch the animation below.
If you’re gonna be in Vancouver October 16 + 17, I’ve been invited to speak at a two-day festival here called Blend. It sounds like it’s going to be more of a party than a conference, for lovers of animation but also other creative things too (at least I hope so otherwise they’re going to be severely disappointed when they realise I’m not an animator).
Tickets are available at http://blendfest.ca.

Here’s an addictive little iOS game for all you designers out there who feel you have a discerning eye for colour! You can test yourself to see just how accurate those eyeballs of yours really are.
Specimen was created by three New Yorkers; Designer Erica Gorochow, developer Sal Randazzo, and programmer Charlie Whitney. The museum-led incubator known as NEW INC acted as a home base for the project and it sounds like the community there really helped foster Specimen’s development.
The team now has plans to be able to provide users with data about the way they see colour. If you wanna check it out, you can download Specimen for free.
(I’ve found that I do better when I squint at the screen.)
