Check Out This Canvas Space

Oh, how shall I begin this wondrous tale that I have for ye…hmmm? Dive right in.  So there I was, with my finger tips gliding amongst the keys,  I was on a mission to search for yet another phantasm for this digital thought bubble of enjoyment.  My blog yearning for visual adventure and crying out for satisfaction.

Then, all of a sudden, the mighty Tumblr gnashed its mighty teeth into my search bar and all was still.  At that moment, my topic bled forth and I came to find the visual amusement of a young woman who creates amazing compositions on her thighs using only simple black and red sharpie pens.  The skill and precision alone are what intrigued my curiosity further. This woman I speak of is  Jody Steel.  Jody Steel is a visual arts student who came to find canvas space close at hand when she decided to start using her personal canvas space.

Each drawing that Jody creates takes about an hour to complete, but even less time to wash off.   Out of all, I’m a major fan that she chose to do a portrait of Walter White from the hit series Breaking Bad.  These portraits are so well done one could even mistake them for being actual tattoos.  Thus, I have taken the liberty of attaching a link for your viewing pleasure.

In my travels of the world wide web, I searched high and low for an interesting subject worthy of posting.  Many thanks to the wonderful tool of Pinterest I came across this eye-opening data poster.  What better way to improve our social media skills then to have a better idea of time management to increase our own efficiency with technology.

Collider With No Collision

Posted: September 13, 2013 in Uncategorized

Despite my dismay for the lack of Jer Thorp lastnight, I did in fact enjoy the vast creativity of the works presented at the Collider Show.  Of the variety of presentations, one of the motion graphic and its digital print grabbed my attention rather abruptly.  Growing up, there was one thing among the many that I could not resist its creative opportunistic splendor. LEGOs.  Killer Infographics’ created a digital print and motion graphic in anticipation of LEGO’s MINDSTORMS 15th Anniversary to display the change that has taken place in the toy industry for children today.  I enjoyed the excellent use of space, simple choice in the color palette pumped up with designer grey background, and the execution of shapely figures of illustration.  All together, this digital print struck me as a Home-run-hitter in the visualization presentation.  I snapped a few shots of the poster with my phone, however, the quality is not top shelf.  Please feel free to take peek.

I was rather intrigued by this website’s simplicity and visually appealing façade. The organizational assets of the page via the main menu hidden to left of the page alongside the eye-catching use of the foreground impressed me.  I admire Bienville Capital Management’s strong execution of minimalism and great use of  “less is more” in the construction of their webpage.  Please feel free to drop off, plug in, sit down, and enjoy its’ internet glory.
