As people active in the world of design, blogging, social media and art, we’ve come across pieces in our career that sent a pang of jealousy right to our core. The reactions ranged from a gasp, a gripe or a mumbled “I wish I could do that” but the underlying takeaway was always the same: an overarching desire to bring that gasp moment into our own work and come away as a better designer having seen that piece. Cliche, but true. Teil Duncan is one of those artists we envy and draw inspiration from. Her acrylic paintings of figure studies, animals and beaches are a colorful as they are intriguing. Her brushstrokes look effortless and her figures are full of life. We can’t wait to see how she inspires us next.
There are a few common trends among the faucethead creative offices: overflowing iPhone camera rolls, inspiring images saved to our desktop (and our actual walls, too.) and an unhealthy addiction to Pinterest (and pizza). Since we don’t plan on changing any of these habits any time soon, we thought we should at least share them with you. While we’d love to share pizza, we’re going to opt with sharing glimpses of our camera rolls. Follow our adventures on the @faucetheadcreative Instagram account. You never know what you’ll get.

Sometimes it takes a bit of time before something great is brought to your attention. In this case, it took us four years to come across this dark comedic animation featuring a couple’s encounter with a man they believe to be the Zodiac Killer. Intrigued? It’s worth the ten minute viewing time and a peek at the making-of details here. Enjoy.
