major work

emipax asked:

What kind of schools do you suggest for an aspiring artist?

Here is my answer for you, emipax, and anyone else who also has this question: Where you go to school doesn’t matter that much as an artist. Just practice, read tutorials, watch videos, get tips and critiques. Thats whats is most important. You can learn 90% of what they teach you at any art school on youtube or other online tutorial sites like Lynda or Digital tutors, or just by practicing. What you are really paying for by going to Art school is the scheduled time to be able to practice and get critique from teachers or “professionals” who supposedly know what they are doing. And depending on the school, you will get those professionals who have done work for major companies that you admire, but you pay much much more. You are also paying for connections to industry professionals so you can get a job once you are done. But again, the better the school, the better the connections, the higher the cost. That’s all school pays for. NOT the experience and the skills. YOU do that yourself. It just depends how much time and critique and connections you want that should determine whether or not you go to an art school and what art school you choose. If you go to say, Full Sail, you will get the time and critique and connections with some industry professionals but on a MUCH limited basis, and you will pay and arm and a leg for it. If you go to Cal Arts or Ringling school of Art and Design, you will get all that time and critique and connections to industry professionals who have done work out in LA, but you will also pay an arm and a leg and your other limbs and hell your whole body and soul because of that. Unless you are very rich, you WILL be in debt for a long time. But hey, you got that time to make art and all those sweet connections right? And there is nothing wrong with that but its something to keep in mind when  choosing a school if you decide to go to art school. Because if you are serious about art, these are the ONLY things school really pays for that you cant get elsewhere. There are people who go to schools like Ringling and come out on top working for Pixar, and there are students who graduate in the same class and wind up working at Starbucks. The school does not matter, what matters is your dedication. I don’t mean for this to sound harsh, but this has been what I have learned. Going to art school is a good idea if you find it very difficult to motivate yourself and find time to create art. But it’s not cheep. So i guess you all will have to decide if it’s worth it for you. Personally I almost regret going. But whatever path you choose, it’s not right or wrong, you will meet people and learn things no matter where you go or what you do. It’s all about what you think is best for you. 

But DO NOT go to the Art Institutes. They suck and its not worth the money. 

talvipuu asked:

I feel really tempted to write a thesis about your work. Might be kinda tricky since I'm a cultural history major and already working on my master's thesis, but I will find a way. (Currently the most viable option: minor in comparative literature, write a second bachelor's thesis on the societal aspects of disability in Newsflesh. Or something.)

Hee hee hee awesome.

Francis Sandford, Lancaster Herald at Arms, A genealogical history of the Kings of England and Monarchs of Great Britain, &c. From the conquest, anno 1066. To the year, 1677.

Library Call Number: DA28.1 .S26 1677

Sandford’s British Genealogy includes genealogical information and biographies of English and British Monarchs from William the Conqueror to Charles II. Though it provided no new information at the time of its publication, Sandford’s work amalgamated existing knowledge accompanied by etchings of royal tombs and portraits.

Sandford’s position as a herald at the College of Arms brought him to document royal lineages and state ceremonies. His first major work, A Genealogical History of the Kings of Portugal, was Sandford’s first tribute to the royal family to commemorate the wedding of Charles II and Catherine Braganza, included a detailed account of the wedding ceremony. Following the book’s publication, Sandford was commanded by Charles II to produce an account of the death and state funeral of the Duke of Albermarle.

Sandford’s British Genealogy would be his major work, building on the systematic organization and extensive illustrations of his previous works. This book was planned during Sandford’s role planning the reconstruction of the College of Arms following the great fire of London in 1666. The book became a key reference on the subject.

Following the coronation of James II, Sandford recorded the coronation rituals which he published in The History of the Coronation of James II and his Royal Consort Queen Mary. This book was published shortly before the Glorious Revolution of 1688 and the establishment of William of Orange as monarch. In protest, Sandford sold his office and Lancaster herald. (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography)

Sandford’s British Genealogy was acquired by ARC to support studies in History, Art History, Literature, and Design.

Art, Works of.

A number of major works of art have recently been named in the series. These include:
Battle of Koom Valley, The (Methodia Rascal) [T!]
Beauty Arising form the Pease Pudding Cart Attended by Cherubs Carrying Hot Dogs and Pies [UA]
Don’t Talk to Me About Mondays! (Daniella Pouter) [T!]
Freedom (Daniella Pouter) [T!]
Goddess Anoia Arising from the Cutlery, The (some bloke with three ‘I’s in his name, apparently) [T!]
Man with Dog (Lord Vetinari & Wuffles) (William Pouter) [MM]
Three Large Pink Women and One Piece of Gauze (Caravati) [T!]

For completeness, I will include a poem:
Oi! To His Deaf Mistress (Robert Scandal) [UA]

planned parenthood is a lifesaver for many women who are not insured or who cannot afford to go their primary care physician or hospital for every UTI, Yeast infection, std, or other common health concerns. A vast majority of their work does not have anything to do with abortion. WIthout access to affordable sexual and well woman health care, many women will go without. And I don’t understand why no conservative politicians are even talking about funding for all the other important services that will become unavailable to many by defunding planned parenthood. 

Major Bummer

Unless they dismiss my husband’s DUI case next week when we go to court– which will ever happen– I’m so screwed.

He went to the DMV this morning and they told him that once his 30 day temporary license is over, he’s going to lose his license for 30 days. There’s absolutely NO WAY around it.

In that 30 day period, he will have to sign up for DUI classes and all that other crap, regardless if he is convicted or not. The only way you can get your provisional 90 day work license is if you are signed up and participating.

That means I have to take him to work and pick him up. Guess when his provisional license ends? The first day of walnut season! That means Chris will be working 7 DAYS A WEEK GRAVEYARD SHIFT. I’ll have to leave here at 9:30pm to drop him off, then leave to pick him up at 6:00am. WTF?!

If he changes to swing shift, I’ll have to leave here at 2:00pm to drop him off… and leave here to pick him up at 10:30pm. Realistically, that’s better.

Either way, I’m freaking dreading it.

Major work Questionnaire

Hey guys!
I am currently undertaking my major work for my final year, and i have chosen to do an in-depth study into mainstream feminism and post-colonial feminism. I was wondering if you guys could spare around 10 minutes to answer my questionnaire relating to my major. This is over 40% of my final mark and it would mean the absolute world to me if you all can participate (The more the better!) 

Just click on this link and it will open up to a new page :)

Thank you everyone for your time, God bless!
