This short inspired me a lot! Very unique style with well combination of 2D and 3D. Directed by Clément Soulmagnon, Yann Benedi, Sébastien Eballard & Quentin Chaillet - Copyright Supinfocom 2008 - Gary-lefilm.com. You must check One of the Creator Bened Yann's blog, there are lots of concept sketches and illustrations there.
A Mexican illustrator & designer Albert Cerriteno who lives in Portland amazes you with his artwork. He’s strongly influenced by urban vinyl toys, alternative cartoons, and the pop surrealism movement. Like it!

I was invited by 11th TBS DigiCon6 as a HK representative to give a speech to introduce AstroBoy, I talked about some of making of and development of AstroBoy design. This is really a great trip which is totally out of my expectation. I learned a lit and meet some friends. TBS DigiCon6 is an annual animation competition for Asia organized by Japanese TV. Their goal is to invites digital content creators, both professional and amateur, to create their original work. that we have to support! This year they got 2741 submitted animation works from 8 regions on Asia includes: Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, India, Singapore, Malaysia & Korea. It is very encouraging that 2 Hong Kong animation won the Encouragement Award this year and actually Hong Kong won the grand prize last year.
At the forum, each region talked about the animation development and how the government support, I felt so shame that our government gave the least support compared with other regions...

Brooklyn based artist Ebon Heath creates complex mobiles made out of beautiful jumbles of letters and words. His typographic sculptures free text from the confines of 2D space and where it can engage with the larger physical environment.
Heath explains one view of his work:
The structures are a physical representation of our language as object. This “visual noise” permeates all aspects of modern culture, especially urban living. From the signs, billboards, stores, and t-shirts that yell with type for attention as you walk down any high street. All the audio and verbal noise, from music we plug our ears with to the din of countless conversations, screams and whispers. With new media of texting, online, and transmitted technology there is even invisible noise silent to the eye surrounding us all. It is this cozy womb of information, data, or chorus of cacophony that my mobiles hope to represent as well as reveal. Making the invisible visible.
