Here it is, finally: the compilation of all the pages of my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project 2011 for Art House Co-op . I’ve uploaded larger images of my illustrations on my Jem’s Imajes Facebook page , so you can see all the fun details more clearly. Now all the sketchbooks which have been sent in are being prepared for their tour , which begins in February at the Brooklyn Art Library. Looking forward to the project again next year! Like this:
One of the most asked about questions is "How do I use social media for my business?"..Translation, "How can I whore my business out on Twitter and Facebook? As you know, I myself am a "Twitter Quitter", having shut down my account since it didn't increase sales or add any value to my business. But there are alot of people who swear by it and it does benefit there business is some way.There are no "hard and fast" rules or magic wand that can give you success with these outlets, but the following may be some info that can work for you.
Spring is right around the corner and personally, I cannot wait! It's one of my favorite times of the year. So I thought to get into the season I would share Stephanie Ryan's beautiful watercolor paintings with you. To me, they celebrate the joy and colors of Springtime. Her florals are elegant and whimsical while her little birds are completely endearing. Aren't they gorgeous?
So this morning I woke up and scanned a rather unique drawing which, when I first drew it, seemed to have popped into my head unformed. I was quite proud of it, and even got the post half written before it occured to me to google the basic concept. Because really, just popping into my head?
I'm in love with the mesmerizing work of Yellena James . Her organic, poetic, alien-like gardens and worlds seem to vibrate with their own energy. Her work has been shown around the globe, captivating those lucky enough to be gaze into her magical realms. I also can't help but be amazed by all the talented artists that come out of Portland ! I feel lucky to be so close to such inspiration.
How incredible are these art illustrations by Marion Bolognesi ?? I remember seeing her work a while ago, but this time round when I came across it via Design Folio , I couldn't help but be captivated. "She hopes to capture the emotion & beauty of her subjects without hindering the natural fluidity of her medium." I did some works a couple of years ago using watercolours, and I think after seeing these works, it may be time to get out those brushes again! Truelly worth the visit to go check out her site :) <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

HOYA CORPORATION manufactures and markets the highest quality monolithic color filter glass. Our offerings encompass a wide range spectral characteristics spanning from the ultraviolet to the infrared region. Each filter transmission spectrum is determined by the highest purity chemical composition with precise control of the glass melting process.
Color can only exist when three components are present: a viewer, an object, and light. Although pure white light is perceived as colorless, it actually contains all colors in the visible spectrum. When white light hits an object, it selectively blocks some colors and reflects others; only the reflected colors contribute to the viewer's perception of color. The human eye senses this spectrum using a combination of rod and cone cells for vision. Rod cells are better for low-light vision , but can only sense the intensity of light, whereas while cone cells can also discern color , they function best in bright light. Three types of cone cells exist in your eye , with each being more sensitive to either short (S), medium (M), or long (L) wavelength light.
Color selection is an important part of art. Learn how to plan the colors for your next work of art in this free art lesson series from an art instructor. Recurring evidence suggests that many more people claim to be color blind than actually suffer from this disorder. In most cases, these pretenders are not seeking medical treatment or insurance benefits, they are simply attempting to excuse an appalling lack of taste. For the purpose of stereotyping such unfortunates, their affliction shall henceforth be known as color ignorance. This torment first manifests itself to the rest of the world when kids decide they want to pick out their own clothes.
Color Space Fundamentals Computer monitors emit color as RGB (red, green, blue) light. Although all colors of the visible spectrum can be produced by merging red, green and blue light, monitors are capable of displaying only a limited gamut (i.e., range) of the visible spectrum.
The world is full of colors. Some researchers report that humans can distinguish about 16 million different colors. But what's more interesting is that most of the colors we see around us and all the colors we see on a TV or computer monitor can be created from just three different colored lights.
Ahoy! I come bringing gifts! (Not really… just a new blog layout…) The columns of the previous one were not big enough to really post my work so I thought this might be a better solution. I am still lukewarm towards it though… comments?
