I’ve just had a fantastic day at the Pictoplasma conference in NYC watching hours of character art and design, from the rampantly hallucinogenic visions of David Oreilly and Friends With You to the simplified forms of Akinori Oishi and the prodigious output of Studio AKA.
One of the more interesting talks was David Oreilly’s, where he showed a number of unseen animations and outed himself as the creator of the Octocat meme, before showing us the final episode. I won’t give anything away, but try see it if you can.
And I thought he was just the guy that created the fake iPhone hologram video:
iHologram – iPhone application from David OReilly on Vimeo.
BONUS: Alba and I scored a box made by Motomichi for the apartment – sweet!
