Were there to exist micro-careers where you could hand-select any aspect of a larger profession to specialize in, I would have found my calling. I stumbled upon it just the other day. I went to see Pixar: 25 Years of Animation , at the Oakland Museum of Art. It's an exhibit that has been traveling around the world for the past 5 years. Now it's come home to Oakland, just minutes away from Pixar's home base of Emeryville, California. It's only on until January 9th, 2011 so if you are in the area, Do try to get in to see the show.

May 12 2011 Designing an icon set may sound like an easy thing to do but in actuality it is much easier said than done. Many designers end up with a disaster, while some more matured and experienced designers successfully meet the expectations and deliver. Generally speaking, a designer needs to learn the basic principles of icon design first, and must be aware of the significance of and function that icons perform on web sites and in user interfaces.
Let's face it: stars can be really hard to draw. I'm not talking about the singular balls of blazing gasses, though, I'm talking about the subtle and beautiful star fields that make a piece of celestial art what it is: a portrayal of space. One of the reasons space is so much fun to draw is because, despite the plethora of Hubble images inundating cyberspace and science magazines, most people don't have a preconceived notion of what space should look like.

Anyway,do subscribe to my RSS feed guys,u'll be updated with interesting contents from my blog as and when a new topic is discussed every week.I'll try my best to posts at least once or twice a week,so fret not....Its an ongoing blogging journey for me. Well,for todays topic,i present to u...The Shaolin Monks Of China.Shaolin Kung Fu refers to a collection of Chinese martial arts that claim affiliation with the Shaolin Monastery.Chinese martial arts pre-date the construction of the Shaolin Temple by at least several hundred years.Chinese monks practiced martial arts prior to the establishment of the Shaolin Monastery in 497.Monks came from the ranks of the population among whom the martial arts were widely practiced prior to the introduction of Buddhism. The oldest evidence of Shaolin participation in combat is a stele from 728 that attests to two occasions: a defense of the monastery from bandits around 610 and their role in the defeat of Wang Shichong at the Battle of Hulao in 621.
The fighting was furious — and entirely one-sided. While on patrol in eastern Afghanistan’s Paktia province in December 2002, paratroopers from the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division had taken a wrong turn and blundered straight into one of Paktia’s isolated villages. The villagers weren’t Taliban or even Taliban sympathizers. But they heavily armed — and determined to keep the Americans out. AK-47–armed men opened fire from inside mud huts and behind stone walls.
August 4th, 2008 Poets and writers of all ages and nationalities have always glorified women’s beauty using the most flattering epithets and comparisons; and sculptures and artists have been creating great and pleasant for eyes figures and characters. In this case the matter concerns appearance, or to be more precise, stable beauty canons when looking at the woman’s face (no matter of what epoch) you would unambiguously reckon it really beautiful. Female beauty has always been an everlasting admiration and the source of inspiration.
According to Ben Heine I’ve been taking photos and drawing since almost 10 years. This « Pencil Vs Camera » series is nothing but the result of several years of graphic exploration and a logic consequence of my artistic evolution. But the real idea came by coincidence while I was watching television and writing a letter at the same time a few weeks ago. Reading my letter before putting it in the envelope, I saw in transparency the television behind the paper. I then realize it would be great to make something similar in a single image showing 2 different actions.
What is important to you 2011-ongoing It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and forget what really matters to you. After I lost someone I loved very much, I thought about death a lot. This helped clarify my life, the people I want to be with, and the things I want to do, but I struggled to maintain perspective. I wondered if other people felt the same way.
