Inspired by those great men of the salt flats, those men that in the 60s pushed the Land Speed Record from the 300s up towards the 600mph mark in jet-propelled cars built in their sheds.

paperman

@DisneyAnimation #animation #blackandwhite #lovestory sigh, beautiful! Introducing a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques, first-time director John Kahrs takes the art of animation in a bold new direction with the Oscar®-nominated short, “Paperman.” Using a minimalist black-and-white style, the short follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him. Created by a small, innovative team working at Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Paperman” pushes the animation medium in an exciting new direction.

ham

@hamcane @jessicahische this video is on almost all my favorite blogs … and for a good reason. jessica hische is one of the most creative typo artists out there. when ever i think “oh come on she is just an old hat… woops, she comes up with something beautiful and surprising . so I have given up being jealous and just admire her work publicly. but not enough of jessica hisches beautiful work – no, a beck fan called ham added an amazing, breathtaking dimension to an already great work …ham (ham on facebook) made a video recreating jessicas cover by paper, every tiny little bit is cutted and glued by herself in that wonderful work. paper works like that one always bring a third dimension to typography and illustration what adds them such a playful feel and taste. I love it! did i mention i love it?
