Drawing the Human Eye & OnlyPencil Drawing Tutorials We can all probably draw the human eye, we draw the oval shape with the iris and pupil. I consider that to be a basic sketch of the eye. Before you draw a realistic eye you must first study what it really is. I will post a closeup picture of an eye so you can see what it looks up close. Transmedia vs Repurposing When considering a transmedia extension for musicians, it is important to understand the difference between extension and repurposing. Of all the artistic expressions, music is the easiest to toss onto another platform without much thought or intent, often as the background score to unrelated content. While this may garner hefty profits, it does nothing to expand on the music itself. Transmedia allows for musicians to take their music and bring it to life in new forms. They can do this by capitalizing on the benefits of individual platforms, such as the long-form storytelling of television or the immersive quality of video games, that are not available on traditional audio formats.

The Campaign For Drawing The 2014 Big Draw will run from 1 October to 2 November across the UK and in twenty other countries, with 280,000 people expected to join in over 1000+ events. The Big Draw offers thousands of enjoyable, and mainly free, drawing activities which connect people of all ages with museums, outdoor spaces, artists, designers, illustrators - and each other. These events are for those who love to draw, as well as for those who say they can't! 2014 will see The Big Draw working in partnership with the Family Arts Festival for a second year to create the largest family arts festival in the UK which will span the autumn half term from 17 October - 2 November. This year's Big Draw theme, It's Our World, is a celebration of our environment - of urban and rural landscapes. This makes Faber-Castell, an especially appropriate sponsor of the 2014 Big Draw.

The Transmedia Approach Integration is chaos. With so many agency / channel specialists – clients waste a ton of money paying for redundancies in their big agency fees. Furthermore, when Kellogg wrote the textbook on marketing integration years ago, I know that what they describe in their scenario planning was not what marketers are attempting to pass off as an integrated marketing plan. Today, 'Integrated Marketing' is defined as a multi-channel plan using the same message across all channels.

Hierarchy of Consumer Social Needs In a shameless gaming of social media I’m going to start with my key graphic. If you read nothing else, this is what you need to know: Figure 1: Hierarchy of Consumer Social Needs Figure 1 presents my Hierarchy of Consumer Social Needs. Global Social Media Users Pass 2 Billion The latest figures from Facebook suggest that the number of people actively using social media each month has now passed the 2 billion mark. More than half of these use Facebook each month, while Tencent’s QZone platform is home to almost one-third of all global users. These aren’t the only platforms posting good numbers though – Twitter in particular has shown impressive active user growth in the past few months: There will inevitably be overlap between users of these platforms though, so we’ve been careful to only include the numbers for the largest network in each country in our total global figure. Given that, it’s worth noting that another big contributor to the global active user number is VKontakte, which accounts for 75 million of the total global figure. That’s not enough to place it in the Global Top 10 rankings above, but VK is still a dominant force in Russia and a number of its neighbours.
