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 »
My new favourite iPhone/iPod game is Canabalt by Adam Atomic. Your little pixel dude is trying to escape what looks like some sort of alien invasion, and he’s running for his dear life. All you can do is choose when he should jump (by clicking), between rooftops, through windows into offices and across cranes etc.
Makes for a quick game, but super fast paced and addictive. My top score is 7927m, see if you can beat that! Also you play it online (free) here »
This is alot safer for work than you might think ;) It’s quite a surprisingly good collection of vintage porno title frames and logos, put together by the appropriately named Pornographics agency.
Here’s the video:
Cheers for the link Dickon.
Ha ha, Nicky just showed me this three frames site, simple idea really well done, recommend having a look through.

You’ve got to see this awesome cinematic teaser for the new Rockband game, Beatles edition. It’s starts off pretty good, nice 2D animation, well stylised. Then the boys parachute down, like the Lemmings, into a proper bonkers psychedelic wonderland, I loved it.
Directed by Pete Candeland of Passion Pictures, the guy who did the Gorillaz videos with Jamie Hewlett.
It’s a shame the actual game isn’t stylised the same..
The recent trend towards handmade paper craft seems to be still going strong, director John Kelly mixes it up with hand drawn animation in this lovely animated voyage through nature’s life cycle (sponsored by Adobe CS4 and made by Nexus). Be sure to check out the interesting making of video, and his portfolio (with brother) and his Flickr Stream for more work.
