Your clues this week are: The artist worked as a manuscript illuminator and panel painter during the Early Italian Renaissance. Giorgio Vasari, fount of suspect information, claimed the artist trained under a person who was beatified by Pope John Paul II centuries later.

15 Movie Storyboards: See the Early Conceptions of Your Favorite Movie Scenes We were all blown away by the early concept art for some of the most well-known movie characters, giving us a look at how they could have looked if the finger of fate pointed in a different direction, but now it's time to delve deeper into the movie-making process by checking out some incredible storyboards from well-known flicks. Imagining a character on the page is one thing, but depicting an entire sequence of actions meant to serve as a skeleton of the finished movie product is an entirely new endeavor. Where verbal descriptions are unable to communicate a filmmaker's vision, in steps the storyboard. As 'Hellboy 2' artist Josh Sheppard pointed out on his official website, Guillermo del Toro used to work as a storyboard artist for a few years and recognized the difficult task the team had, saying, "you got a hard f------ job." But the end results are incredible pieces of art that give sneak peeks into early depictions of movie characters and renderings of famous movie scenes.

X-rays show why van Gogh's yellows have darkened - physics-math - 14 February 2011 Video: Tiny X-ray saves Van Gogh A bright yellow pigment developed in the 19th century was a gift to the Impressionists – it allowed the likes of Vincent van Gogh to create his vibrant sunflower paintings. But not all the works that used chrome yellow have fared well over time: the yellow areas in some of them have darkened considerably. No one knew why – until the powerful X-ray beam generator at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble, France, was turned on the paint.

Tips - How To Create Brand Identity Guidelines - Inspiration - Fenster Media Why have brand identity guidelines? The answer is simple: to build a stronger brand for the products identity. Inside the brand identity guidelines are tools, templates and information to help all consumers, partners, advertising agencies, offices produce materials that are consistent, professional and immediately recognizable as a product or company.

MOCA, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles Jacob Hashimoto's "Gas Giant", on view March 1–June 8, 2013 at MOCA Pacific Design Center. Photo by Raymundo Barrera MOCA curatorial assistant Selene Preciado interviewed artist Jacob Hashimoto in conjunction with his exhibition Gas Giant, on view March 1–June 8, 2014 at MOCA Pacific Design Center.

Spanish Steps The Spanish Steps (Italian: Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti) are a set of steps in Rome, Italy, climbing a steep slope between the Piazza di Spagna at the base and Piazza Trinità dei Monti, dominated by the Trinità dei Monti church at the top. The Scalinata is the widest staircase in Europe.[1] History[edit] Following a competition in 1717 the steps were designed by the little-known Francesco de Sanctis,[2] though Alessandro Specchi was long thought to have produced the winning entry. Generations of heated discussion over how the steep slope to the church on a shoulder of the Pincio should be urbanised preceded the final execution. Archival drawings from the 1580s show that Pope Gregory XIII was interested in constructing a stair to the recently completed façade of the French church.
