Oh tutorials, how I love you....and I really do. I wouldn't know half the stuff I do without the good tutorial every so often. Vector Tuts just came out with a list of great Adobe Illustrator tutorials. Some of my favorites are the Guide to Infographics, the Geometric Line tutorial, and the Isometric Illustration tutorial. For the full list go here.

Love Does Grow on Trees

Named one of the top five shorts at the Tribeca Film Festival by New York Magazine. 'Love Does Grow on Trees' is a coming of age comedy about a teenage boy whose life is thrown into chaos when he discovers adult magazines, girls and the embarrassment that goes with both. This video is definitely worth the watch. It captured that awkward horny adolescent stage all boys go through in life in such an honest, hilarious, and dead on way. Created by Bevan Walsh.

Zac Gorman

Zac Gorman is one creative man. His work is a huge nerdy pimply high five to my inner child.  I especially love the use of .gifs to make his comics move. Brilliant.

Glenn Jones

If you don't know who Glenn Jones is then you have either have been under a rock, don't have access to internet, or have just not known you have seen one of his works.  He is the master of T-shirt design and I hope to one day climb the mountain and train with him. What I love even more is that he records his illustration process, which is not only interesting but educational as well. Check out his portfolio here.

Song of the Spindle

An intellectually stimulating yet entertainingly hilarious piece by Drew Christie for the Possible Futures Film Contest. Without such great dialogue this piece would have fallen flat. But the great ideas behind this really make it a strong and engaging piece.

The Alphabet

From the guys at n9ve comes another amazing interpretation of the alphabet. Some may remember this beautiful specimen of animation they did a while back.

Well this piece takes a more visual representation of the word each letter creates. My particular favorites are D, N, T, V, and W.

Mike Mitchell

It was really hard for me to pick only a few works from Mike Mitchell's amazing collection.  So I just picked a lot because life is hard enough, why make it harder for myself? His style is original and his content is hilarious. What more do you want, really?

JESS3 X ESPN - TV Ratings 101

ESPN was looking for a way to make the explanation of how the TV ratings systems works simple and interesting—at least engaging enough to keep the audience awake. With direction to create something reminiscent of “Schoolhouse Rock,” meets “Sesame Street,” JESS3 created a five-minute animation with an old-school, 1970’s ESPN SportsCenter vibe to walk viewers through the television ratings process.

Watch the video below for an interesting behind the scenes at everything that went into creating such a fun piece. The key thing to note is how great and trusting ESPN was as a client. It is always great when you can get that sort of partnership in the workplace.
