Great little animation by motion designer Markus Magnusson. Love the style, the masked transitions between greetings is really nice, the fist bump greeting is my favourite. More animations on his Vimeo »
I love a good illustrated map, this one by the South African outfit – Muti is a fine example. Nice clean geometry, lovely bit of vintage texturing, and the rest of their work is well worth checking out too.
As an avid collector of random crap I’m drawn to this set of beautiful colour studies by New York-based artist Sara Cwynar.
Finished editing the video of me and my brother walking across the Alps from Lake Geneva to Nice along the GR5. If you haven’t got half an hour to spare, here’s the 2.5 min highlights version.
At the time we booked our plane tickets we didn’t realise that the Alps had received it’s biggest snowfall in the past 50 years over winter… So even though it was early summer (June), it felt more like spring! Progress was slow through the deep snow on the passes and we had to make a few detours for safety. In the end we didn’t make it all the way to Nice before our 20 days ran out, we stopped a few days short at Saint-Étienne-de-Tinée. But we had a great time, the scenery was fantastic and we pretty much had the whole Alps to ourselves, which is a rare treat these days.

I drew a picture of Eddie the other day to decorate my desktop, if you want a stylised cat face on your computer too, then download it here »
The GR5 was a fantastic little walk, sometimes we made extremely slow progress due to the sheer amount of snow this year, but we had a great time. I’ve uploaded at set of photos to Flickr if you want to see the trail in more detail.
