As creative artists and designers we often ‘create’ a time, space or mindset that nurtures our creativity. This can be anything from one’s favorite desk, park or a particular time of the day when we find the best ideas available to us. In my last post, I spoke of using uses the discipline to instill discipline, routine and regulate one’s life which ascribed to the ’350-words-a-day-no-matter-what’ system of writing by Graham Greene. Using that analogy this time we will focus on Jack Kerouac‘s fabled ‘wrote-it-on-a-roll-of-toilet-paper-while-drunk’ methodology. While many may find my contradictory perspective unnerving, it may well be so. This is an ancient Zen technique which advices the disciple along one path only to advocate the very opposite once the disciple grows comfortable in his chosen methodology. Intrigued? Read on…

Dogs are so nice when they are playing. Although taking good photos of your dog can be so fun, it isn’t that easy. It’s like trying to take photos of a baby or a child. Your dog won’t be interested in sitting pretty for a portrait. The trick is to be quiet, patient, and to devote a lot of time.

The Château de Marqueyssac is a 17th century chateau and gardens located at Vézac, in the Dordogne Department of France. The chateau was built at the end of the 17th century by Bertrand Vernet de Marqueyssac, Counselor to Louis XIV, on cliffs overlooking the Dordogne Valley. The original garden à la française was attributed to a pupil of André Le Nôtre, and featured terraces, alleys, and a kitchen garden surrounding the chateau. Between 1830 and 1840, Julien Bessières constructed a chapel and a grand alley one hundred meters long for horseback rides.
There is something mystique about cats, isn’t it? These animals, domesticated by humans thousands of years ago, still remain very self-willed and independent, their intellect is obvious, and their behavior is often very rational. They do what they want, go wherever they want, and even when someone pats a cat – that is only because a cat ALLOWS a human to do that. As we have already mentioned cats entered the human life many and many years ago, becoming the symbols of home comfort, coziness, diplomatic loyalty, independence, and ability to come through even the toughest situations unscathed. As the acknowledgement of cats’ role in human culture, logo designers often use the images of cats, both domestic and wild cats-family representatives, such as tigers and lions, in their logo designs. The secret of such logos is very simple – people love cats… And they also love logo designs, featuring all kinds of cats.

Almost a century ago and without the aid of any pixel-generating computer software, the itinerant photographer Arthur Mole (1889-1983) used his 11 x 14-inch view camera to stage a series of extraordinary mass photographic spectacles that choreographed living bodies into symbolic formations of religious and national community. In these mass ornaments, thousands of military troops and other groups were arranged artfully to form American patriotic symbols, emblems, and military insignia visible from a bird’s eye perspective. During World War I, these military formations came to serve as rallying points to support American involvement in the war and to ward off isolationist tendencies.
Do you know the difference between classic old-school art and modern or contemporary art? There are must be many of them, but today we want to illustrate just one, which, we believe, is among the most prominent differences. It is the object, chosen by an artist, to be the model for his creative works. While Victorian Age or Renaissance painters mostly focused on the ideals of beauty, choosing only the aesthetically perfect landscapes and human models to depict on their pictures, modern artists tend to search for their own aesthetics, often in the most unexpected and unusual places and things.
