Nando Costa is burning his way toward the perfect Kickstarter. He’s making a unique animation using a laser engraver to precisely cut each frame of a film on a piece of wood. Temptingly, people that give to his project will get a unique piece of art from him and if you give $70 you will receive a one of kind engraved wood frame from the film. Costa has been directing animation for over 10 years and we enjoy his clean style, so we are looking forward to seeing the movie. You can see examples of his work at nandocosta.com, then head to his Kickstarter project where the more is donated the longer he can make the film [Read more...]

Ok artists, here’s a clever idea if we’ve ever seen one. A cute couple go out on a snowy winter art walk, observing randomly placed street art around the city. But this is a secret art walk with each piece symbolizing a season of the couples relationship and lovingly created by local artists for the sole purpose of popping the question. It’s heart warming, artistic and clever. See more pictures of the works at flickr.com.
You know how everything seems to look better in slow motion? Well, it turns out that clouds look amazingly good going really, really fast. These giant floating masses of water often appear to stand still, but give them a little kick of speed and all their undulating movements and diverging layers become apparent.
