Disney’s Oscar nominated short animated film Paperman is a wonderful return to their old hand drawn methods. The description of the YouTube video doesn’t go in to much detail about how exactly it was produced, but it does mention that it’s a blending of both hand drawn sketches and computer animation.

It’s an understatement to say that us Americans like our cars. Fathom has beautifully shown us how much we love them by creating this incredibly detailed map of the United States. It has no outlines or features other than over 240 million different road segments around the U.S.. Despite only consisting of roads, major geographical features and population densities are reflected in the way the roads have grown around the landscape. More details here.

What if children’s drawings were drawn more realistically? That’s the question that Dave DeVries answered when he created The Monster Engine. Sadly, the Monster Engine site is down, presumably from all of the traffic it is getting, but after the jump you can see more crazy cool examples of this work.

Our buddy Matt Rainwaters is having a book release and signing party at Domy on Wednesday, October 5th, for his new book, titled Beard. For those of you who are unfamiliar, here’s the description by Chronicle Books, who published the book:

Hundreds of bearded men strutted their stuff at the World Beard and Moustache Championships in Anchorage, Alaska, and photographer Matthew Rainwaters was there to capture it all. This resulting collection of portraits features the bushiest, most stylish, and downright weirdest beards from around the world. Taken straight on, the photographs are stark and stunning the beards speak for themselves. Alongside the images are essays by several of the championship competitors, including $teven Ra$pa and his beard Prepostero. A magnificent showcase of chops, bristles, and whiskers, this book belongs on the shelf of any true facial hair connoisseur.

If you’re in Austin, be sure to make it out. Limited edition wrap-around covers will be produced for the first 50 books. And beer. Free beer. Good free beer.

Everyone is posting their take on the resignation of Steve Jobs from the position of CEO at Apple tonight. Instead, I just want to share a video that made a big impact on me while I was still struggling with deciding what to do with myself after college. It is the commencement speech Steve Jobs gave at Stanford University in 2005. It is one of the most inspiring speeches about education and following your heart that you will ever see.

I’m absolutely floored by the detailed beauty of Tzu-chi Yeh‘s paintings of trees and rivers. When I first saw them I questioned whether they were actually paintings, but assure you they are. They’re wonderful. More after the jump.

Did you know that Stanley Kubrick was a photojournalist? I had no idea until I came across these incredible photographs of the Windy City! #gobulls

“Before he started making movies, Stanley Kubrick was a star photojournalist. In the summer of 1949, Look magazine sent him to Chicago to shoot pictures for a story called “Chicago City of Contrasts.” Chicago Tribune

I’m going crazy over these archival portraits of criminals in Sydney, Australia. They were taken between 1912-1948 and are part of the archives of the Sydney Police. I’m not sure if it was standard to shoot booking portraits like this at that time or not, but they remind me of another series from back in the day called Crooks Like Us that I posted about before. Whatever the case, I think the most jarring aspect of the photographs is how well dressed everyone is for being criminals. Oh the times they are a changing…

Typographic illustrations like this get high marks in my book, so seeing this new work by Jeff Rogers is great. Maybe Jeff Rogers will find it in his heart to do one for ATX. We’d be much obliged. See his painted murals we wrote about here. More after the jump.
