Microsoft Introduces to the World its HoloLens

“The era of holographic computing is here.

When you change the way you see the world,
you can change the world you see.”

Game on! Microsoft pretty much just took design and an endless list of other applications to a whole new frontier.

Have a peek at what their new HoloLens can do, enabled by the new Windows 10.

Peanuts’ Snoopy and Charlie Brown Take to the Big Screen in 3D!

Today I found out the comic strip “Peanuts” by creator, writer and illustrator Charles Schulz will be hitting the silver screen (perfect for 3D projection) next Summer 2015. There are two things you should know about me, the first is I LOVE illustration and the second is that I LOVE animation!! I can’t get enough of both!! It fueled my imagination.

Like some of you, I grew up reading Peanuts comic strip and watching any full length cartoon they made for the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas). While I’m super-excited to see this new film, I am somewhat concerned about whether or not the integrity of character design for Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang (Lucy, Linus and Woodstock) will be preserved.

There’s nothing more upsetting than seeing characters you’ve grown up with get reintroduced to a whole new audience (mind you a younger one) and there’s all this unnecessary fluff added. Thankfully if this teaser trailer is any indication of what’s to come, I can say that the computer-generated-animators have done a fantastic job ensuring the integrity of varying ink strokes that Peanuts is known for is kept in this “modern” rendition.

I’ve always admired how Mr. Schulz signed his name at the end of each comic strip. I hope this new cartoon keeps his memory alive; he brought a lot of laughter into the world.

Watch the teaser trailer, all of 52 seconds long. I’m curious to hear what you think.

Everything about Brasil Will Move You: the Making of Rio 2016 Logo

Quite possibly one of the most intricate designs that I have ever come across for a logo design. The interesting thing too is that the design can be produced in three-dimension and that makes for a pretty fun time!

I also admire, and I know you will too, the tremendous research that went into producing a rephreshing Olympic logo. FINALLY!!

Here’s to Brasil… one for the ages!!
