The Stop Motion Jazz

Right so I mentioned my project last time for my stop motion piece ‘The Everyday Situationist’ and I taught that I would show you a simple way for making your own stop motion. Keep in mind this was just a prototype and will be easy to replicate if you wanna try it.

Basically it involves a camera and slowly moving a piece in front of a camera .And its in these pictures that make a frame, which when placed together can make a short video piece. Depending on how realistic you want the video to be you can add more frames a second, which takes more time and will power to only change the object in the frame as slightly as possible between frames. For how I made my actual video you need a live feed from a DLSR camera and a program for stop motion (if you use dragon frame theirs a months free trial and it’s pretty decent) and from then on it pretty simple, until you get to the joys of editing the video piece together (with movie maker, or premiere)

Pictures NOW IN 3D

So what the deal with the big 3D craze? yeah I don’t get it either, much alike everyone else who reads this blog with the exception of a blind “viewer” or two, I see things in 3D, like everyday, sometime if I walk into these 3D object it even feel like they are solid. So now we have accomplice the fact that seeing things in 3D is no real big feet, is it really worth wasting on extra euro (or dollar/pound) to watch a movie? And while we are asking that, why is the idea of a picture being in 3D that much impressive to your standard 2D pictures?

I will tell you why 3D is so big, because of artist like; Nagai Hideyuki. So what Nagai Hideyuki does that makes him so remarkable, is creates small imaginative figures, that’s drawn is such a realistic and skillful manner that’s makes them appear in 3D, when viewed from that right angle, very similar to that chalk artists Julian Beever, So if you like and wanna check out more of Hideyuki’s art, you can find it at; http://nagaihideyukiart.jimdo.com/gallery/

You got something on your face?

So if I told you that after all those years of getting childish tigers and pale ghost face-paintings splashed across your face, that it was actually possible to recreate a work of unquestionable art in its stead, what you say? I do agree that silly face painting IS  a waste of money, although the idea of face-painting was not wasted on Andy Alcala who took the consept to the next level.

I am  sure if this talent was acquired by a massive insecurity of Andy Alcala as he wished to hide his true face behind beautiful works of art, or if he had a uncontrollable urge to wear make up and cancelled out this odd fetish with this peculiar method of face-painting, there is no denying that the end result is very impressive. Anyways to check out his tumbler page or spy on more of his pictures you find him at this link; http://www.andyalcala.com/

Art FINALLY meets Fashion?

If someone where to ask we that i would spend the past hour looking at a clothing website called Allen Solly, I would have laughed, as most of my shopping is done at shady market places, hey don’t call me crusty (that’s the irish term for hippy) it’s just hat i am into, HOWEVER i did find this amazing web site that’s sells clothes. Although it’s not the clothes that strike me as much as the unique style of photography they use to display their merchandise.

So if you see anything u like it can all be brought online @ http://www.allensolly.com/brandsite/ or if you wanna check out some more cool modeling pictures I am sure they are to be found either on their site or at google images.

 

Mr Brainwash

I know what your thinking, Mr Brainwash, sounds like a cheesy late 50’s horror film gone wrong (I don’t really know why late 50’s but it makes me sound like I know what I am talking about) Mr Brainwash who is formally known as Thierry Guetta, LA Film maker and pop artist shocked viewers at his Life is Beautiful exhibition back in 2008 and has been doing so ever since.

Mr Brainwash, who started his art career as a journalist, as he documented street art all over, soon became inspired not only to create the ultimate Street Art documentary, but to pick up a spray can as well and dabble his hand in art.

With many accomplices under his belt, such as designing the cover to madonnas greatest hits CD “Celebration”, Guetta has become a ledgend in the Art world

When I say I have only showed you a fraction of what Mr Brainwash is capable of on this post, trust me there is much more, so check out  http://www.mrbrainwash.com/home.html

 

 

Shes the Wizard

I am sure that you are all familiar with the movie “She’s the Man” (if not go, NOW, and buy it) Well I decided to draw a small poster and a mash-up between “Shes the Man” and “Harry Potter”, where Ginny joins the mens Quidditch team and meets the handsome seeker Harry who is under the impression that shes a MAN.
