Doll Face by Andrew Huang
2008-01-25 21:46:00
Doll Face follows a machine's struggle to construct its own identity. The machine with a doll face mimics images presented on a television screen and ultimately self-destructs from its inability to adopt a satisfactory visage. Created in its entirety by Andy Huang, Doll Face presents a visual account of desires misplaced and identities fractured by our technological extension into the future.Andrew (Andy) Huang is currently a senior Fine Arts major and Animation minor at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Andy's past animated work has been showcased at the Smithsonian National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., and his latest independent short film "Doll Face" has been selected as part of the Official Selection at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France, as well as the Electronic Theater at SIGGRAPH 2006 in Boston .

According to scientists of the german university of Heidelberg, the true identity of Mona Lisa was finally confirmed.The woman who served as a model to Leonardo Da Vinci's painting "La Gioconda" also known as "Mona Lisa", was the fiorentine aristocrat Lisa Gherardini wife of a fabrics trader with the name of Francesco Del Giocondo.A note that was found by Martin Schlechter in one of the first books printed with movable characters, confirms that Lisa Del Giocondo was the model for the most famous painting completed between 1503 and 1506.Writen by Vespuci in 1503 and found on a work from 1477 by Cicerone, he states that Leonardo was working on the portrait of Lisa Del Giocondo.José Carrilho(according to news)

About Anamorphic Perspective
2008-01-05 20:48:00
According to a brief search, it seems that anamorphic perspective can be found as early as the 15th century.When one observes the works of the old masters, it is notrare to become astonished with their skills, not only in terms of drawing but also their knowledge of mathematics and other sciences. So it may not be a surprise to see fine examples of anamorphic perspective from centuries ago.The image shown, Triumph of the name of Jesus, is from Giovanni Battista Gaulli and was executed from 1672 to 1685.One of my favorite artists is Andrea Pozzo and his anamorphic perpective works are simply amazing.Like in those times, its use is still seen on buildings and fortunately the less acquainted with the matter can enjoy it through art festivals and competitions, namely by seeing the works of great sidewalk artists such as Julian Beever.And if you want to digg a bit more into it, here are two more links to explore : morphic.htmhttp://users.physik.tu-m...

Work in progress on Pastelmat
2007-12-31 00:31:00
This is a work that I am doing onPastelmat from Clairefontaine.Its dimensions are 18 cm x 24 cm and the medium issoft pastels, including some pencils.Pastelmat is a sanded smooth paper, permiting good detail,vivid colours and a reasonable number of layers; not many though.On this paper, one has to carefuly plan ahead since layers influencethe upper ones (unless using a pastel with good covering power).This can be good or bad, depending on ones intentions.Blending with fingers is practically inobtainable on first layers.I advise not to start with the really soft ones, unless that isthe colour to keep or that you won't add much more on top of it.Concluding I would say that this paper deserves a try.Second stage and practically finished.Now it's time to give it a rest and we'll see whatI may add in the future.And after reading some opinions, I've finished it.

Our Role as Artists
2007-09-06 22:33:00
In a world where indifference reigns and apathy invades peoples' lifes, should we not alert towhat is going on ? Scenes like children starving would have a highly and schocking impact in the early eighties, but now they are so common on the TV that they seem to have lost it. Through creative expression, should not artists have a more proactive attitude ?And should we not educate our public and ourselves to become more aware ? Share your thoughts with us. Thank you.Kindest regards,José
