Young and ambitious

Under - Art, Inspiration, Photography

Julia Wang is a 16 year old bokeh, life, and color obsessed artist who enjoys dabbling in the surreal and soft qualities of light. Living in a small town in New Jersey, this young artist has a dream and lifelong passion to travel the world and document the lives of people, culture, and diversity.

I picked up my first DSLR in January of 2009 and I am head over heels in love. I would consider myself self taught, seeing as I’ve never taken a photography course. The internet is my teacher, my friend, my inspiration. A lot of people like to call themselves visionaries with unique visions of beauty, but I just call myself just a regular girl with a passion for taking photos of life on Earth and the people I love.

Fund and follow creativity on Kickstarter

Under - Art, Design, Industrial Design, Inspiration, Resources, Technology

Obtaining seed money to launch a business has always been challenging, but, with a crowdfunding platform like Kickstarter things are changing. Founded by Yancey Strickler and Perry Chen, this New York based company helps people realize their creative dreams and ambitious endeavors.

Kickstarter is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. Every month, tens of thousands of amazing people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, film, art, technology, design, food, publishing and other creative fields.

A new form of commerce and patronage. This is not about investment or lending. Project creators keep 100% ownership and control over their work. Instead, they offer products and experiences that are unique to each project.

All or nothing funding. On Kickstarter, a project must reach its funding goal before time runs out or no money changes hands. Why? It protects everyone involved. Creators aren’t expected to develop their project without necessary funds, and it allows anyone to test concepts without risk.

I covered one of the record funding on kickstarter few weeks back, below is another successful projects from their 2010 Kickstarter Award.

More London…

Under - Art, Inspiration, My Musings, Photography, Photolog

A top-up to my existing London photography collection … mostly in colors this time. Those of you who have explored London would know how beautiful the hour-long walk is from Westminster Bridge till Tower Bridge or the other way round. There’s so much to capture that I wouldn’t be wrong to call it one of the most photographed part of London. There are also ferry services that operate in-between these two bridges providing another view of the same stretch.

You can view the complete set at Flickr.

Idiot with a Tripod

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media, Photography

An extraordinary film by Jamie Stuart. Not only is it a wonderful evocation of Dziga Vertov’s 1929 silent film “Man With a Movie Camera”, but consider that it was photographed during the blizzard of 2010 (NYC) and edited at lightning speed.

Nomad Brush for the iPad

Under - Art, Illustration, Industrial Design, Technology

This appears to be something that I had been waiting for but the video and the website do not provide enough information to address all your questions. It sure is a unique artist paintbrush stylus for the iPad made with a long handle and soft bristles, but is it pressure sensitive? Is it going to work with all those paint and sketch apps out there or would come with it’s own?

The information is very sketchy and I see a slight lag in response (may be just me!) in that three seconds demo shown in the video above. Available February 2011 so meanwhile enjoy this and yes, I hope Wacom is going to wake up soon.

Liz Rusby – nature, beauty and romance

Under - Art, Inspiration, Nature, Photography

Spring’s here! something that Liz Rusby’s photography brought to this blog. From soft pastel colors to overall engaging compositions, each image is very creatively captured with its own unique and emotional touch. Liz’s photography feels dreamy yet realistic and is powerful enough to make you search for some poetry.

Liz Rusby currently lives in the San Francisco Bay area and works as a photographer for a local boutique real estate company. She started out photography as a passionate hobby that has grown into a profession.

I am a self taught photographer, inspired by the romance and beauty of nature and drawn to the quiet moments of everyday life.

For work I use a Canon 40D with a 10-22mm & 17-70mm lens, for play I love prime lenses, the 30mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.8 & 100mm f/2.8.

Ok, I know ‘that guy’ now!

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media

It wasn’t that hard to find after all! ‘That guy’ that I first noticed here and mentioned here is Adam Lisagor of Lonelysandwich, and here is an interesting interview with him at the Business Insider.

He is definitely the guy to watch for all the reasons below. Now, since I know who he is, the only question I would want to ask him is where he got ‘those’ glasses from?
