…It’s Movie Monday: Parkour Motion Reel?

Parkour Motion Reel

The Parkour Motion Reel shows that with a little post-production, a lot of drawing ability, and a ton of patience, you can create something truly unique that brings a few simple sheets of folded paper to life:

…It’s Things Thursday: Monster by Mail?

Monster By Mail

For just $25, cartoonist Len Peralta will draw you an original monster based on a design of your choosing and then mail you the final piece of art for you to display on the wall. Add $10 more, and he’ll even include a YouTube video of the entire process so that you can watch the creature come to life.

iSketch is an amazingly addictive online drawing game.

The game plays as follows: One at a time, players draw a word that the other players have to guess. The first person to guess right gets 10 points, and any other player who also guesses the word correctly get fewer and fewer points until the round ends after a certain amount of time.

It sound simple, and it’s basically just an online version of Pictionary, but play a few rounds and you’ll soon see what all the fuss is about.
