REWORKED Grit vs Beauty

Here is another reworked piece that just didn't have that pizaz i wanted. the class suggested i change the topic, or the focus in the center to something that makes more sense. So.... here it is this is what it should have looked like in the first place. even with some more constructive crit, I wouldnt change anything about this one. ........ Other than the F. up on the pixle size, which happened before most of the stuff on here. Like it or Love it, Enjoy!

REWORKED Warning Lable!!!!

This is my re worked warning lable, I re worked it to include more visual information, which adds to the over all appeal of the peace. In a tight situation, we dont always have time to read the fine print. Here I made it simple enough to notice the equipment supplied by the P.A.D. building saftey requirements.

Photoshop Project

Lecture 4/13/10

Lecture 4 / 13 / 10
This was not a very interesting lecture. the first man to speak, old us a lot about what painting is.
Apparently It has never changed. The basic elements to painting are:

Paint, it was made from crushed earth , berries, urine, charcoal, and many other resources.

Sticks, wich are used to push around the paint and sometimes had a little hair on the end.

Placement, Location surface or canvas to paint upon, There has been and always will be a place to p ut paint. That place has changed and advanced along with time but the basic elements of painting have and will always be, the same.

Subject, There is always a subject, no matter what the painting is.

Meaning And there is always a meaning, even in paintings simplest forms, like cave paintings from the first human artists there is almost always a deep intricate meaning to all artwork.

These are the elements of painting, and I will not get into style, which is the one thing that has been changing in painting. that was not something he mentioned in his speech. It is sort of a pessimistic view but that was what he had to tell. i think that that was probably what he came up with for his masters degree from PAFA here in Philly. I actually wanted to go there but you can't get a sculpture degree there so I decided to try my chances at Tyler. THANK YOU!

Lecture 4/6/10

This lecture was weird to say the least. The couple that came in to speak was reminiscent of a bad couples movie. Acting this way in public is annoying. Te students agreed that their jokes were bad and would often end in an awkward silence. Haha! This is not what I want to act like when I get older.
I couldn't focus on the topic of their presentation but I learned a good way not to do a lecture. Wile trying to give a good speech, you should not joke about your wife or visa versa, you should not try to insult your speaking partner either. To continue to flow through your presentation, try to remember that it will all be over soon and nothing bad will happen. Don't take anything personal and remember to always have fun, not make fun.

Lecture on 3/23/10 (BEST LECTURE EVER)

Today we had a very interesting speaker named Lynda Barry. She was very energetic, enthusiastic and fun to listen to. She began by talking about how she is a nervous speaker and about how she is going to overcome her nervousness by singing a song. The song that she sang was an original that was very short and funny. It described her family's background and where she comes from. She is from wisconsin and went to college in Washington State at Evergreen.
I have a good friend that goes to that school and was at the lecture that day and thought that, even though he doesn't know who Lynda barry is, he felt that he knew here well and she represents the school perfectly. She tells us that she gets a lot of inspiration from children, who are the most imaginative of the ages any way, so what a great idea, right? right! it is the best possible way to look at Images because when you know fewer words it is the imagery that is important. Think of all of the best books you read when you were little. Dr. Seuss books, where the Wild Things Go, all of the great imagery that we can remember with grate detail even if we have not seen them in 10 or 20 or 30 years, we still have the images imbedded in our memory. It is memory and Images that for me, go hand in hand.
Kids can give us great and simple idea, because lets face it a great idea is a simple idea that just happens to work so very well. What is it about kids that makes their ideas simple? It is simple in itself. They just do not know the same and as many things as adults do. They do not understand all of the negative things that make us forget to imagine, like paying the bills and going grocery shopping and being busy. kids have the ability to imagine with a pure and uninterrupted mind.
Lynda talks about imaginary friends and that she never had one. So she decided that she was going to pretend she had one. She is the kind of person who would have and "imaginary imaginary" friend and say, " its okay". Thats some funny shit, and is one of the reasons I am drawn to people like her. She curses and seems so natural when talking to such a young and vivacious crowd. I was surprised she was so interesting, at first i just thought she was weird but began to appreciate her when her true colors began to emerge.
she came talk to us about images and the picture really sank in. She instilled the playful imaginary aspect involved in child like thought and imagination. It is a great thing to be able to be young at all times and Lynda seems to be very young at heart. take a page from her book and staple it to your shirt, or your head if you think it can be done. She is an energetic menace to society that should e followed and taken note of. She can probably make anyone laugh and anyone smile. Thats one of the key things that will make someone successful in life. Do not forget to pretend or act young at all times and always enjoy yourself!
