Surreal Visionary art by Cristine Cambrea "If there were a special camera or glasses we put on to see people and things not just by their physical attributes but also see their experiences, their troubles, their sicknesses, their connectedness or lack of to everything else around them I think it would look very similar to one of my paintings. I don’t draw what a person looks like I draw a map of those experiences, feelings and energy and the relationship between their physical, emotional and energetic environments.” -Cristine Cambrea As a Visionary artist, I use my inner emotion and intuition to guide me.

I do not work in the traditional process that incorporates sketching and planning. The work typically has two different levels.

These are very tough questions from a young artist that could take a life time to answer. I'll try to provide some insight as to what has worked for me and look back at my career with 20/20 hindsight. To start with, my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Syracuse University (coupled with three previous years at the University of Vermont) was very important in laying the foundation in developing my career, but equally important was the drive to be creative, prolific and open-minded.

Every artist has to seek their individual path to success, no two are the same. It has taken many long years of practice, patience, and devotion to craft to attain the level of quality now exhibited within my work. I am sure this advice sounds similar to others before, but it is the truth, practice, and plenty of it, makes for perfection. Pursuing the arts is an admirable and challenging goal, but you have to be willing to make great sacrifices along the way to achieve those ends.

Somebody submitted this question to my other blog (midcenturymoderndesign.tumblr.com) and I ended up writing quite a long answer, so I figured I may as well post it on here, just in case it helps anyone in anyway at all!

It is a very hard question to answer really, but I tried to help and be honest. My answer is below: Hi, thanks for a tough question! I’m 25 and have been a designer professionally for about three years now, after spending four years at University. So It wasn’t so long a go that I felt in a similar way. It’s interesting that you ask me about drawing specifically. My advice would be this: You don’t have to be able to draw to be a designer per se, there are some areas of design that you can pursue where you don’t have to draw to succeed. A lot of graphic design can be done without ever getting off the computer, but you don’t want to be limited to that, and often doing things by hand (not necessarily drawing) can be enjoyable and help you work differently.

By Guest Contributor Anna Gay Photographers are often striving for a “vintage” look in their photos, and even though there are endless ways of achieving a vintage look, there are a couple of characteristics to keep in mind. First of all, the color tones in a vintage photo often lean towards either a blue or a red hue, or a cross-processed look. Vintage photos also have an element of noise or grain that can be achieved through textures, and also a certain amount of vignetting around the edges of the photo. In this tutorial, we will look at adjusting color tones and adding vignettes. This photo is the result of adjusting the color curves, adding two vignettes, and a color fill, which we will walk through step-by-step. First, open your photo in Photoshop and make sure your foreground color is set to white in your side tool bar. Then, select Layers, New Fill Layer, Gradient. You will see the above dialogue box.

Now, let’s adjust the color curves. Select Layer, New Fill Layer, Solid Color. Web Design and Development Tips, Tutorials and Related Resources - [Re]Encoded.com. Designers. From up North. Fri, 07/08/2011 | Co.Design. NiceFuckingGraphics! Sharona Design.
