'Nyway, I'd like to introduce the artist who really got me into studying human anatomy and drawing full bodies in general. Tobias Kwan, or, Tobiee, as he's known on deviantart dot com. I suppose I worship him to some degree, but, yeah, as soon as I saw his work, I did a total change and began developing. Here's one of his artworks:

This is the kind of style I aspire to progress on. I suppose I can do a daily "Khristine's Artist of the Day From Deviantart Dot Com" thing, or somethin'. When I remember to. Napping or sleeping can really take a chunk of my memory with it. orz
And because Marisol asked for it (I'm doing this for you, bb! ♥ ):
Times Four by ~elicitchaos on deviantART
An art I did recently a week ago or so. It's also a link to my actual deviantart account, so, people can
I have a personal journal where I also post my work, but, ah... It's more interests related, and contains incoherent babbling and general craziness, so, I suppose I should rule that out.

So far, from the calendar, I generated this list:
- Contemporary Jewish Museum
- Rena Bransten and Fraenkel Gallery
- Luggage Store
- Museum of Craft and Folk Art
- Museum of African Diaspora
- Edo Salon/ Lower Haters (?)
- De Young Museum
- Catharine Clark Gallery
- "awesome new cutting edge exhibit curated by an excellent team of extremely talented people"
(referring to BAN 5 I take it?)
I encourage everyone to respond, and while you guys are here, I thought I'd also share someone's blog that I found the other day
It's like a gallery within itself
and we could probably use it to our advantage
like this one, I found it at that blogit's pretty futuristic if you ask me xD
Also, please do EXPAND on these words and ideas in your own blog post. I encourage you all to use a bubble web to organize your ideas like we did with Temo last week. Let's start a conversation on the blog about these ideas; it is a great way to prepare for our discussions when we meet.

I just wanted to write to say great job yesterday absorbing all the information that Temo and I had to share with you. I know there was a lot of information, but you all stayed engaged and contributed to our discussion including asking great questions which helped us help you. These are skills that will help you throughout your life so it's great you're learning them now! I have listed some reminders about the presentation.
Topic: BAN5 artist
Time limit: 3 min (30 sec buffer)
Make sure that you use the handouts Temo emailed you to OUTLINE and FOCUS your presentations. Please prepare a pwrpoint. In general, one slide per minute is a good rule but we'll be loose about this for now.
Lastly: ethos, pathos, logos, kairos. They are you're new Greek friends.
Have a great weekend. Look for art everywhere you go. Happy presentation making!
ps. What did you all think of this week's visits?

The BAN 5 opening on Saturday was fun, I can't wait to hear about what people thought of the art.
The criteria for my "favorite artist" was if I could see how their work could relate to some youth subjects. I really liked Praba Pilar's "technology preaching" I think that can relate to our youth theme, since our generation seems to be the most technology friendly, a lot of people who are even younger than us can create a website and other things.
There was one artist I forgot to write down the name. The artist was on the hallway down from the lounge, right before you turn to the right to go downstairs. The artist used spray paint.
Okay, thats all I have to say for now. See ya tomorrow!

This is the first post of the YAAW blog. Here is where we expect you to contribute your opinions, pick up information, reveal cool art findings, and contribute to the collective effort of the Young Artist At Work Curatorial team.
1.) Everyone to post at least on thing each week. Since you are given journaling time at the end of each session to reflect on the day and the activities, exhibitions, and art, you have a basic draft of what to write about in your weekly summary. These reflections become crucial in the development of your "Curator's Eye" because there may be somethings that you picked up in the day that other's may have missed, and vice-versa. We need a centralized place to gather all of those ideas and feedback. Hence, welcome to the blog!
2.) This blog will be used for YAAW/YBCA purposes only. Topics and information that are relevant to YAAW & YBCA will only be allowed. This blog is not to be used for sharing personal information, talking about other people in a negative or slanderous way, announcing outside parties, posting inappropriate images, dialogue or information can lead to the dismissal from the program, dependent on the seriousness of the material. In other words, if you have a doubt that what you are posting is completely unrelated or inappropriate, then it is probably unrelated or inappropriate.
3.) The same rules that we established in class are also applicable in the blog. I will be posting the list of class rules that we collectively established. Read them. Learn them. Live them. Except that you can bring food and drinks into the blog, just leave them in the blog and not at YBCA.
4.) Distribute information that may be helpful for the understanding of the main topic of the class, the development of the "Through Future Eyes" exhibition. There maybe an article, a link, an image, a movie recommendation, a YouTube clip, or something on the web that helps further the discussion that you want to share with the rest of the group, the blog is the perfect place to share. Welcome to the blog!
5.) Please check and read the blog whenever you receive an alert. Keep up to date to what others are expressing. If we show up to classes on Wednesdays with everybody on the same page, our discussion will be much more productive.
Oh! Ooh! Oooh! I've got something to share!
