Pascal Campion 8

Illustrator Pascal Campion has a big heart, and every one of his artworks shows it. That’s saying a lot too, because he’s amassed well over 3000 sketches since he started his Sketch of the Day project in 2006. At that point in his life he was short on time, but starting that challenging project has garnered him more exposure and fans (he calls them friends) than he could ever have expected. Just take a look at this small selection of his work and you’ll easily see why. [Read more…]

Millennium Falcon in Cardboard Thomas Richner 19

…in a basement far, far away (well actually Columbus, Ohio), animation artist Thomas Richner had a big mess of boxes to clean up. He had two options: recycle them responsibly, or build a 5 foot long model of the Millennium Falcon. We’re sure glad they didn’t go to waste.

One hundred and forty hours later (and a whole lot of glue) the Star Wars model is complete, and so realistic it almost looks like a still from the movie when filmed in front of a green screen. Let’s take a trip through Richner’s process from humble start to hyperdrive finish. [Read more…]
