Links: January 2004

  • Exploding food 29 January 2004, 15:004

    Food taking bullets in slow motion; beautifully destructive. Seven cans looks great, and it's interesting to compare 9mm damage compared to the full 44. (NOTE: Quicktime)

  • Omie 29 January 2004, 14:31

    Russian Serge Maksimov illustrates (real ink, not digital!) in his own distinctive style. And huzzah, an illustrator's site not done in Flash!

  • Quest for the Crown 28 January 2004, 11:49

    With the exception of SSCrabble, probably the best game on the Internet. (NOTE: Flash)

  • Feric 27 January 2004, 16:11

    The deconstructed mechanics-meets-join-the-dots illustrations on this site are complex yet cute. (NOTE: Flash)

  • Words before looks 27 January 2004, 12:42

    Gerry McGovern writes an interesting article on why web content is fundamentally different to traditional advertising.

  • Celestial artistry 19 January 2004, 17:50

    A nicely understated site, but the content is the gem here. Detailed and beautiful celestial artworks from Greg Martin.

  • Robot in disguise 19 January 2004, 17:35

    A Mazda that transforms into an Autobot. Do Toyotas transform into Decepticons? (NOTE: Flash)

  • FWA 2003 winners 16 January 2004, 13:21

    Lots and lots of Flash at Favourite Website Awards. What's surprising is the choice for official winner of the year, a vote for functionality/usability over vacuous style. (WARNING: Flash)

  • Uncontrol 13 January 2004, 17:38

    More cool Flash action scripting. I'm beginning to think of them as art installations. (WARNING: Flash)

  • Pirelli 2004 13 January 2004, 15:14

    Some weird photographic imagery from the 2004 Pirelli calendar.

  • Poetry commentary 13 January 2004, 12:23

    "Actual Comments Overheard In A Poetry Workshop By A Fiction Student In An MFA Program That He, In Order To Fulfill All Degree Requirements, Is Forced to Take". Delicious.

  • Pixelbreaker 12 January 2004, 13:57

    Always a sucker for Flash action scripting, I particularly like the Bandai shading example here (try and find it without a link, because it's Flash). (WARNING: Flash)

  • Just Photoshop 08 January 2004, 13:36

    Based on a photo, but done entirely in Photoshop.

  • Acid art 07 January 2004, 15:20

    In a 1950's US Government experiment, an artist makes nine sketches whilst under the progressive influence of LSD. Funny tripped-out side comments.

  • Kozyndan 06 January 2004, 16:37

    Kozy 'n Dan make some great anime-influenced slightly-surreal illustrations using a range of media.
