Learn how to draw…


Oh man, what a goldmine!

This guy, Rad Sechrist, is a storyboard artist at DreamWorks and he does this blog called Rad How To were he basically explains “how to draw”. Nothing more and nothing less. He posts sketches and drawings with explanations, comments on what he does exactly and why he does it. Well, there’s no point in going on and on about it. Get over there and see for yourselves. If you want to learn how to draw, or how to draw better, this is where you want to be. Go!

(Yeahyeahyeah, I know I’m supposed to try and keep you here as long as possible, reading my stuff, but this is way better, so scoot!)


(You’ll come back tomorrow, wont you?)

Animation : Stop Motion Skating

Tilles Singer is from Germany. He made this short stop motion animation using photographs cut out from skateboard magazines. A very simple idea, very well executed. Nice little film. Hurray!

Vintage Movie Posters: War

This is the final installment of our four part series on movie posters. Today we are looking at war movies. There was an awful lot of posters to choose from in his category and as you can see, I ended up with a post about twice as long as the previous ones. Again, most of them are from behind what used to be the iron curtain, but we also have some from Italy and quite a lot from Japan.

You will notice that I took some liberty with the term “war movie”, not limiting myself to the traditional World War II movies but also including older wars and even some historical movies with knights or samurai. You don’t mind, do you?

If you want to go and search for more posters, these came from, and from On all of these sites, and the ones mentioned in the previous posts, are still lots and lots of beautiful posters waiting for you. Posters for musicals, documentaries, children’s movies, comedies, etc… and of course more westerns, thrillers, sci-fi movies and war movies. Do yourself a favor and go check them out. In many cases you can even buy some posters, if you really fall in love with them.

If you happen to know some more places where one can find stuff like this, I would be happy to hear about it. Please do not be afraid to use the comments-section. :)
