GIF artist Atsushi Segawa (previously) is known for taking classical images of ukiyo-e and carefully computerizing certain parts, setting them into motion. His style is a mix of realism and surrealism, combining historical accuracy with science fiction. Segawa's work recently caught the eye

An upholstery build with EL wire
This is the latest installment in the revamping of our sitting room.It's a solid, oak piece of furniture that was the boy's side table. I made a cool side table to replace the clunky thing, http://www.instructables.com/id/Sci-fiJetsons-Side-Table/ but didn't want to toss it, figured I could use it in some way. At this point, we are all set for tables, and could probably use one more seat offering(besides, around here, tables just become an opport...

JEFRË’s Talking Heads are sculptures with a purpose #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/02/02/jefres-talking-heads-are-sculptures-with-a-purpose-arttuesday/

From design boom:

hanging from the ceiling, the sculptures are each made from transparent acrylic panels and wear a different colored headset. visitors wanting to speak to the customer service representatives of businesses located within the complex can step inside any of these heads and communicate with them through a system of built-in speakers. ‘the inspiration came to me from the concept of the unknown workforce, an idea that came to me when I visited the building,’ JEFRË describes. the installation recalls the image of a call center employee and embodies the faceless, robotic voice epitomized by corporate customer service.

After hard work on this art installation it now reveals the traffic of the city of Guadalajara through an abstract sculpture based on the map of the city that creates harmonious sound and light depending on the traffic of the city... check it out and if you love it you might see it applied to your city:

Here is another hijacked piece, this time it is a photograph by Chris Lord, showing the snow covered Duck Pond in Central Park, NYC. 
I for one saw a little more in the snow: paperwalker.blogspot.com/2016/01/reference-photographer-chris-lord-duck.html #newyorkcity   #characterdesign

I love to hijack Albert Bierstadt's sugary landscape paintings of the American West because of the excessive use of light and exuberant romanticism in them. These features work so well with my animation design work.

My brain kind of automatically produces certain shapes and colours which helps me a lot to save time and energy in visual development processes. On the contrary, working with intuition only easily can lead one to lack variety. So it became extremely important to me to constantly influence or inform my visual development work by adopting ideas from all kinds of references from the fields of industrial design, architecture, fine arts, photography, engineering etc.

Here I built one of my characters directly into the mood/style reference, just to get a taste for how it works in direct interplay. paperwalker.blogspot.com/2016/02/i-drive-car-i-want-to-drive.html   #CharacterDesign   #VisualDevelopment   #ConceptArt

32 bytes of SRAM won't go far.  Also, you'd expect it to go up to perhaps 16 MHZ clock.  Mouser cost $0.55 in 4,000 quantity.

Japan’s Minimalist Version of Lego Is Actually Awesome #makereducation
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/01/26/japans-minimalist-version-of-lego-is-actually-awesome-makereducation/

WIRED has a piece about the Japanese answer to the Lego brick, Tsumiki bricks:

I’m going to say something blasphemous: Lego bricks are ugly.

Don’t get me wrong. The little Danish building blocks have plenty of inner beauty, sure, and are one of the 20th century’s most enduring designs. They can be infinitely reconfigured, which means kids’ ideas about design can be endlessly reconfigured as well. Famous architects have said they do what they do because of Lego. Nevertheless, the plastic bricks are not pretty.

You know you need all the little erasers, sticky-notes, and planners with the geek in mind.
