Help This Art Director Solve The Mysteries In His Grandfather's Photos »

This is a beautiful idea. I love amateur film photography. Sometimes amateurs capture the best everyday details that pros might overlook because they seem commonplace. And color film has such a rich color palette.

GIFs are old—the format was invented in 1987—and with age, comes a lot of baggage. Surely there are better options 27 years later—why haven’t they caught on? And what would it take for that to happen?

Decent story with a misleading headline. It’s more about the proliferation of the GIF medium and the necessary advancement of the GIF format.GIFs rule.

Type on helmets

Specialized on the restoriation and decoration of helmets for motorbikers, Art Casque creates beautiful designs and love typography. Coming from Kirov, Russia their effort is to reach the maximum quality. The images above show you some inspirations. Vintage, modern, calligraphy or illustration they can fullfill your demands like creating a customized tattoo. Enjoy them!

I love these helmets. I just had a vision of me riding a motorbike wearing one of these helmets, feeling like a badass even though my skull was protected. Market these to teenage boys ASAP!

This is a beautiful visual typography video for Ira Glass’ advice for creative people in doubt. A great reminder that hard work, along with taste and drive, can get you where you want to go. (from frohlocke)

More Miyazaki. I remember now that my first taste was Kiki’s Delivery Service.

I’m thinking about how much I love Hayao Miyazaki’s films this morning, after reading news that he is probably retiring for good. The Wind Rises will be his last film.

When I first saw Spirited Away I was slightly terrified but intrigued. I think I wasn’t prepared for the sinister elements of story, but I was drawn in by the incredible visuals. Since watching more and more of his movies I am in awe of his work. His attention to detail is stunning and his storytelling inspiring. The landscapes and worlds of his films are so lush; you want to pause it and look at every detail. He is a true artist in animation. I’m sad he is done.
