Let’s Kick this off with Elliot Chambers and his use of flat colors and shapes.
I love the looseness of Sara-Vide Ericson’s work. The vibrant color and harsh contrasts are striking. I like how she seems to capture her subjects in the act of doing something.
Keep Looking is an animation from Jorge R Canedo E. Chris Anderson, Victor Claudio Silva, and Phil Borst.
The simplicity of the shapes and the noisy texture are really cool.
So I’m a little torn on showing you this. On one hand, it’s a wonderful bit of artwork and storytelling in a game on the Apple app store. On the other hand, they make you pay for each new level. I really hate this business model.

That’s it for today! I hope you all have a great rest of the week.
