It’s a special twofury today on TeeFury. Not only do you get to pick between two fantastic Marvel inspired t-shirts, you get a free papercraft cereal box with your purchase. But don’t order yet, TeeFury is also having a “Super Cereal” flash sale with more Marvel cereal t-shirts, and a few Doctor Who shirts thrown in for good measure.
I’ve seen these shirts around town quite a bit. Be sure to look closely for all the little injokes. You’ll definitely want to collect them all.
The twofury shirts are available today only for $11, but you can order the other super cereal shirts through the 24th for $15.
Tyson Murphy has been working as a digital artist for about five years. He likes to start interesting projects to keep up his skills, such as photoshop editting, painting techniques, and light play. While working on his technique, Murphy decided to grab a screenshot of a Disney classic as a test and see what he could do with some painting and lighting changes. The result is something you have to see to appreciate.
Murphy says he would definitely like to do more of these Disney animation paintovers, including experimenting with actually animating one a little bit in the future. He does not intend for these to be seen as improvements on the originals. But they’re definitely something different.
The 101 Dalmatians one below, reminds me a lot of the new painterly techniques we’ve seen in some of Disney’s recent animation, like Tangled and Paperman.
Disney Fans, it’s time to get Wired.
No really. Go out and get the next issue of Wired magazine. It will feature a special cover with over 30 Disney and Pixar animated characters, not to mention Ed Catmull and John Lasseter who currently oversea both Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios.
Can’t wait for the magazine to come out? You can read the cover-story now. In it Lasseter and Catmull take you behind the scenes of the turn-around at Walt Disney Animation Studios. It’s a long read, but there are some insights the average fan may not know and some cool concept art and digital experiences from Big Hero 6.
If you’ve never heard of the Glowy Zoey LED Stick Figure costumes before, let me illuminate you. These are DIY kits using an Arduino unit to control over 370 LED lights. Not into the whole DIY thing, you can buy the light up suits yourself at the Glowy Zoey site.
This video shows a “Minnie Mouse” edition that was parepared for a magical trip trick or treating at Disneyland. How cute! The whole family actually went as LED Stick figures.
Did anyone see them walking around Disneyland on October 10th?
Let’s give Disney Cruise Line another round of applause. They continue to win awards for Best Large Ship Line in every publication. This time it’s the Condé Nast Traveler 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards that bestowed the honor. Winners were based on more than 1 million votes from nearly 77,000 readers.
“The cast and crew at Disney Cruise Line are always immensely proud of awards like these that come directly from readers and our guests,” said Karl Holz, president of Disney Cruise Line. “It’s an honor to be recognized once again for the family-friendly experience we offer aboard our ships and in ports we visit around the world.”
There is a lot of work that goes into making every Disney Cruise as magical as possible. And sometimes that work gets overlooked, so it’s nice to see these awards accumulate.
The Disney Cruise Line now hosts a fleet of four ships – the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. Guests can sail out of ports around the world on exciting itineraries to the Caribbean, Bahamas, Hawaii, Alaska and Europe, among others.
Have you ever been on a Disney Cruise? What was your most magical moment (I know it’s hard to pick just one).
