APPsolute Fun! lecture at Society of Illustrators

Posted by on Jan 16, 2013 in Exhibitions | No Comments

Just got back from a lecture at the Society of Illustrators about how illustrator can go into the app making business (and also draw on the iPad). As a public service, so you dear reader can reap from the $15 I spent attending it, I’m sharing some of the notes I took. Laura Tallardy was […]

White pen review

Posted by on Dec 21, 2012 in Animals, Product Review, Sketches | No Comments

Bought a new small sketchbook for drawing on location last week (Strathmore Toned Tan). As a result of the toned paper, I bought a couple of white pens for fun (I actually have white chalk / pastel but don’t like how it smudges). Here’s my super quick evaluation of the three white pens I bought. […]

I found this video in Parka Blogs.What struck me is how limited the animation is and how it doesn’t affect the quality of the video. I should try doing a video like that someday.

Art School Confidential clip

Posted by on Jul 17, 2012 in News Articles | No Comments

I was actually looking for a different clip of this movie, but this is funny too. This movie is especially funny for art students, not so much for the general audience, especially when the movie starts focusing on the grizzly murders surrounding the campus.. I think they were aiming for black humor, but for me […]

About the spinning plane in Central Park…

Posted by on Jul 11, 2012 in News Articles | No Comments

I had to google the spinning plane for my last entry and I found a link about the artist. By the way, I’m sad to say that my idea of making the sculpture into a ride was totally unoriginal. There I said it, I’m a hack. Here are some quotes from the artist about her […]

When did this become Art?

Posted by on Jul 10, 2012 in News Articles | No Comments

Here’s Andy Rooney on public art. I’ve often disagreed with what he’s had to say because he was clearly senile. Here I agree with him, except I have a sense of humor so weird public sculptures amuse me. We should put all weird sculptures in one park and call it “Wackyland”. Why has nobody ever […]

The Twilight of painting

Surfing the internet the other day, I came across this page about an artist I’d never heard of before: R. H. Ives Gammell. He wrote a book called “The Twilight of Painting” which in the opening chapter states: “The ultimate importance of Modern Painting in the history of art will be seen to lie in […]

Why boredom is good for your creativity

Posted by on Jul 10, 2012 in News Articles | No Comments

Here’s an article that talks about the all too familiar struggle of getting work done. I personally have to go to the print studio at SVA to work, I find too many things distracting in my apartment (internet, piano, food, dvd collection, book collection). I feel that the print studio has a more “work-friendly” atmosphere […]
