icff preview: lindsey adelman + chalk animation

brooklyn designer lindsey adelman, will be at the icff this weekend (booth# #1942) and several other shows this week- and i’m currently swooning over her ‘knotty bubbles’ and ‘agnes candelabra’. can’t wait to see them in person. click here for more info on her show schedule this week.


i also wanted to start this morning with a beautiful short film that i thought would set the tone for the last day before design week kicks off. icff starts tomorrow, followed by the stationery show, surtex and all the off-site shows (stay tuned for coverage of everything staring this monday on d*s) so i’m enjoying this beautiful, calm chalk animation video by lucinda schrieber of sydney, australia. “autumn story” is a beautifully animated short and i love the way the birds fly from chalkboard to chalkboard. it’s pretty with or without the sound (if you’re stuck at work and can’t listen). [thanks, liz!]

    That chalk animation is fantastic! Even the still images are beautiful. Probably dating myself here, but first thing I thought of were those old “simon in the land of chalk drawings” cartoons!

  2. Wow. What a beautiful short. I think my favorite part is the ghost image left behind as the animation is illustrated; a part of the process normally concealed.

  3. Shandell's says:

    The lighting fixtures are fabulous, creative, new and interesting.

  4. Leigh says:

    Really lovely short. I agree w/ VARIEGATED, the ghost image is what makes it so incredible.

  5. MiaZucca says:

    Love the animation.

  6. brij says:

    wow …gr8 stuff…

  7. I love the bubbles. They are a little bit sassy. I’m so excited and yours is the only coverage I watch and depend on.
    Thank you for that.

  8. Gretchen says:

    Wow, what an incredibly beautiful animation. I was mesmerized by the ghost images as well. Will check out the music also.

    Well, that video was a little life-changing for me. Wow. Very cool idea.
