WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE PIECE OF ARTISTIC ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED, AND FROM WHO?
“There is a book by Steven Pressfeld called the War of Art and this book was extremely influential for me. It basically boils down to: The only thing that matters is to work. Everything else is a giant fucking distraction; you just need to work. It’s not always fun, but you need to get up and do it everyday anyway. There is no valid excuse.”

    A legend amongst us motion graphics designers. Here’s another helpful link: http://www.beeple-crap.com/everydays.php

    I also found his presentation at FITC informative and hilarious: https://vimeo.com/125524216

      awesome! thanks for this :D

    Beautiful and unusual work. There’s a nice balance between more organic forms and geometric ones throughout the works highlighted here. His works embedded here show that he is very acquainted with issues of cyber security. I can only hope the fears expressed in Zero Day don’t come to pass.

    When I first saw the thumbnail image I thought “neat, another person doing c4d test w/ GI rendering clicked on (yawn)” but then I saw the work and was thinking this person has ideas and comps and mood and then of course, it’s fucking Beeple. I’m no mograph artist but you can’t help but stumble across his work if your interested in mograph or just design in general. Can’t wait until he directs his own “Beyond the Black Rainbow” or such… what an inspiration
