Ideas Made of Light Before I say anything else, if you’re an artist you should go buy both of James Gurney’s books about painting. If you like the approach this blog takes to analyzing paintings, you’ll love Gurney’s approach in these books. The one this painting is from is Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter, and his first one is Imaginative Realism: How to Paint What Doesn’t Exist. (As a former technical writer I also like the presentation – each topic is a 2-page spread with a summary up-front, clear text, and a number of illustrations.) OK, plug over, but they’ve both helped me out tremendously.
gemma correll's tumblr of things and stuff i'm a big fan of your work, but one of your pieces is anti Semitic. "the many faces of a woman at rest" features "resting witch face" and the witch has been depicted with a large nose. the idea of witches having large noses is actually a link to the stereotype of jewish people having large noses, and therefore depicting witches like this is anti semitic due to it's connotations. i love what you do, but please could you alter the witch? I appreciate your respectful response, but as far as I can tell, the witch appearance in European folklore comes more from a fear of aging (particularly female aging) and misogynistic sentiment than anti-Semitism.
Why Companies Are Hiring Artists for Their Meetings In this era of PowerPoint presentations and videoconferencing, a growing number of companies are making what is perhaps a surprising move by hiring traditional illustrators to bring meetings to life. These artists, known as "scribers," provide live illustrations to give a visual interpretation of meetings and corporate events in an effort to engage the attendees and help set the company apart from their rivals. "It's a growing market," said David Christie, founder of strategy consultancy and design agency Innovation Arts, which has scribed at events including the World Economic Forum in Davos and TED conferences.

Felix Vallotton’s Reinvention of the Woodcut Meier-Graefe, Julius. Felix Vallotton, Biographie: Des Kuenstlers nebst dem Wichtigsten teil seines Bisher Publicierten Werkes & Einer Anzahl Unedierter Originalplatten; De Cet Artiste avec la Partie la Plus Importante de son Oeuvre Editee et Differentes Gravures Originales & Nouvelles. Berlin/Paris (J. A. Stargardt/Edmond Sagot) n.d. prenez ce couteau adayinthelesbianlife: Carrie (1976) “Whether she’s volunteering to take her sister’s place in the arena or grooming her son to lead the resistance; gunning down the gangsters who sell drugs to the kids in her neighborhood or swinging swords to avenge her daughter, the “strong female character” is often stirred by a maternal concern, a quintessential desire to preserve her community, to protect the weak and vulnerable. Her bad-assery must be in the service of a greater good.
onlinefacilitation - Visual Work and Thinking "Every child is an artist. Theproblem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." - Pablo Picasso Visual practices can enrich our work. This page is a loosely organized overview of visual practices in two related contexts, graphic recording and graphic facilitation. a house in the hills - interiors, style, food, and dogs I almost didn’t share this recipe today because that plate looks like a messy mess. But I guess that’s what hash IS. And it’s so damn delicious that I felt keeping it from you would be a crime! That mess of green on top of the other mess of green- that’s chimichurri. And if you’ve never had it, or you’ve only had it on steak, I think this is your chance to start a love affair with chimichurri.
JE SUIS UNE VRAIE MERE Quand je demande conseil à mon mari pour pouvoir utiliser la maison afin d’y organiser une vente de vêtements géante pendant 3 semaines When I tell my husband that I will use the house to organize a clothe fair during three weeks (via teenagepics) Quand j’ai repris le footing ce matin When I tried to run again this morning (via foodluxury) The Art of Heinrich Kley Heinrich Kley was born April 15, 1863, in Karlsruhe, Germany, and studied art with Ferdinand Keller at the Karlsruhe Akademy and with C. Frithjob Smith in Munich. He started out as an illustrator and a painter of murals, focussing on portraits, still lifes, animals, and landscapes. By the turn of the century Kley’s interest changed to modern industrial life, including factories, blast furnaces, ship docks, industrial buildings, and machinery. One of his best-known oil paintings from this time period is "Tiegelstahlguss bei Krupp" (Crucible steel casting with Krupp).
Feminist Disney hmmm this is an interesting continuation of the “how to let kids be kids” argument from yesterday. I get what you’re saying but I also think there is a LOT going on in that moment, and once again, the solution of “just act like you can’t see your kids and let them do whatever they want” is sort of ignoring the overarching social context that kids are never removed from, even if we think they should be. I haven’t seen the special and the referencing is likely too vague for me to find it among a hundred clips of her, so I will infer that Wanda, as a black child, is acting as most children do, misbehaving or making funny faces, whatever Mother sees child doing this, does not want child to reinforce a certain idea of “what black people are like” to white people watching the child. I will assume her mother is also black, since I couldn’t find much info about Wanda’s family online. A new Stanford University study predicts that the black student will be punished more harshly.
Roberta Faulhaber, facilitation graphique I've been meaning to share some of the content of EuViz 2014 via my sketchnotes and a brief article for those who were unable to attend or who would like to compare notes. EuViz was held in Berlin this summer, organized by Guido Neuland of Neuland Gmbh, makers of all those wonderful markers we love and use, and Kommunikationslotsen, a process facilitation consultancy that is deeply involvedin visual facilitation as well. The conference was co-sponsored by the International Forum of Visual Practitioners community, otherwise known as the IFVP. A total of 240 people gathered for a visual/process fest that included 7 of us from France and people from all over the world. a pair & a spare 25th April 2014 If there was an equivalent DIY project to Jamie’s 15 minute meals, these studded sandals would be it. Armed with the right ingredients, and a little bit of elbow geese (as well as a steady hand – a stab with a dart awl is soooo not fun!)
