Adobe Creative Suite 4 has launched, and will finally utilize your video card’s GPU. It will also include Flash SWF support, a cleaner, common interface and 64-bit for Windows users.
Jacob Charles Dietz’s dystopic artwork is a pastiche of dreary skies and soggy, neon-lit streets. It’s a bit of Blade Runner mixed in with real-world Seattle, where he spent much of his life.
The Room is a short film by Vancouver Film School student Christian Smith; it reminds us of Avatar: The Last Airbender with a bit of Portal thrown in. What a cool game this would make!
Tokyo Twilight Zone is a fantastic collection of photos of the Tokyo cityscape by Sato Shintaro. His shots are all taken of apartment back alleys during 15 precious minutes of twilight.
Made by artist Michel de Broin, Dead Star is an amazing sculpture made with real batteries, urethane and polystyrene. Also: check out Black Whole, Revolutions and Entrelacement.
We’re really digging these Big Bad Wolf Nike Dunks by YoaKustoms; they remind us of the Spitfires of WW2 with a sick grey-toned camo design and extra ears on the heel tab.
The amazing Metamorphosis is the work of Glenn Marshall, who used Processing.org, an open source animation and interaction language. It’s set to music by Scottish group Boards of Canada.
This Transformers papercraft model of Bumblebee makes our paper football look like such weak sauce: it’s made with food cartons and KFC bucket lids and actually articulates.
Keith Thompson is one of our favorite sci-fi/fantasy artists; not only is his work awesome, but he takes the time to write background stories. Spend an hour here; we sure did.
Video Copilot is a collection of tools that lets you create snazzy visual effects. Founder Andrew Kramer worked on the opening for J.J. Abram’s Fringe, which premiered this past Sunday.
Designed by Chris “Devious” Gliebe, known for his graffiti-style robot art, this Destroyer t-shirt features a hand-drawn design with splotches of neon; available in green or charcoal.
Greg “Craola” Simkins has a surreal style which isn’t easily forgotten (we love the Cadillac UFO above). Once a graffiti artist, he’s worked with Vans, Kid Robot and Disney. Thanks, Ben!
Opening 9/25 at Le Gallery in Toronto, David Tratrimas’ Habitat Machines are architectural compositions made from household objects such as coffee pots and waffle irons.
We’ve seen pixel cities before, but Ryan Allen’s Google-maps based Goon City is special because Something Awful forum members are helping out, ensuring plenty of wackiness.
Voltron meets Exxon with The Fleet of Doom, a social commentary on the gas prices and the oil industry. It’s available at Palehorse as a 13″x19″ limited edition, archival quality print.
No, not Jedi Yoda–these awesome Yoda Skateboards are the work of Portuguese artist David Carvalho, produced in conjunction with Pop Cling. To preorder, email David here.
Shakerboys is a hypnotic video by West London based artists Viewmanoid that makes you want to take the day off and chill; it’d be perfect as an iTunes Visualizer plugin.
Design You Trust has a collection of 84 retro-futuristic images available as a RAR file. They’re mostly collected from German magazines; several are perfect as desktop wallpapers.
Dan McPharlin’s Analogue Miniatures have us awestruck; made with framing matboards, most of his models are musically themed, mixing dials and sliders with keyboards.
Ad agency BigMan’s website is one of coolest we’ve seen; the interface is dominated by a Big Man (of course) and lots of flashing, sliding bits of text: kinda like Times Square on crack.
Check out these sweet silkscreen posters by Hydro74; they’re actually an uncut promo print that includes nine of his favorite illustrations on 14″x21″ French Paper. Limited to 40.
Temporary graffiti isn’t so bad: Jaybo aka Monk recently “painted” the Berliner Dom in Germany with a sea of cartoon hands; it was powered with Skudi Optics projectors.
We’ve seen Justin Buonvino’s 3D Super Mario Bros. scene before, but we had no idea he’d created more. He’s got over a dozen here, including scenes from Duck Hunt and Excitebike.
It’s just a bit cheesy and reminds us of a flashing banner ad, but the E-Ink cover on Esquire’s 25th anniversary issue is a technological milestone. Click here to see it taken apart.
If you need inspiration, Fubiz has an excellent post up with 70 creatively designed business cards, with everything from smoked plastic and metal cutouts to wood tokens.
Rodrigo Braga’s artwork is creatively disturbing; based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he’s worked for companies such as Chevy but does quite a few club flyers. He’s also a DJ, too.
Lockwasher is a prolific artist who creates robot sculptures with found objects. Our favorite by far is BeertooD2, although we do wonder if it’s as helpful as the Bud Light Bot.
Transit Maps of the World is perfect for map lovers; it contains every urban transit map on Earth and makes an excellent coffee table book. Our fave: a fictional world transit map.
To say Nick Veasey has an obsession with x-ray photos would be an understatement; he’s imaged over 4,000 objects including an airliner, a bus and even an apartment building.
The French really know how to put on a show: this gigantic 50′ spider is the work of La Machine; it’s currently running amok in Liverpool with its many operators at the helm.
This is one deck you won’t thrash: DolceQ’s sexy skateboards are actually printed by Deckpeck. They allow artists to create their own custom decks and wheels as well as sell them.
