Fantasy Bob Denver's Best Photographer
Want to become a web page designer. Please check out this web designed demonstration page. Hi I want to become a professional web page designer. I have been studying web page design and have made a demonstration page to show my ability to make web pages. Do you believe this could be one of the pages in a portfolio which could get me into the job market as a web page designer? The page is of a make-believe photographer called fantasy Bob. I did this cause I wanted to use Creative Commons pictures as a resource. Thanks in advance Marc

The Art of Komi Chen
Komi Chen's unique visual style blends Western realism with a modern Chinese sensibility. As a woman who has spent time in both the East and West, it seems natural that her works would reflect the visual styles of both traditions. Komi was born in Taipei, Taiwan into an artistic family. Her father, Kuo Hsueh-Hu, is one of the country's premier visual artists and considered one of its national treasures. Her father trained her on the fundamentals of classical Chinese painting and calligraphy. As she gained more confidence in her own visual style, however, she added more colorful and dramatic works that reflect a passion for native cultures and landscapes from around the world: from serene Japanese temples to bustling ostrich farms in South Africa, from sparkling Canadian glaciers to colorful religious ceremonies at Buddhist temples in Thailand.

Year-long sketch-a-day contemporary art experiment
Ok, here is a review from Artmoco.com "Art Juggernaut Cojo is at it again well, he never stops, certainly not this time. Cojo has just launched a sketch-a-day project of his street-pop where he will be doing one pencil sketch every day for a year, giving himself enough sketches from which to compose ten huge paintings, when the year is up. The ten subjects all start with S, the lowest common denominator of the alphabet. Anorexia is a sharp sketch that will be part of his Socialite series, lots of curves that cleverly disguise the facts."

Reviewing Web Sites

One designer recently said

"You learn good design by looking at bad design."
... another states
"You learn good design through the works of others."

Both of these are correct -- but only to a certain point. We believe that you learn good design through the works of others only when you make an effort to actually evaluate the work and state why you think it works or doesn't work. Only then do you actually make it part of your knowledge-base. We're all born with the same set of tools. Those tools you develop and 'grow' are the ones that you use for life -- the effective ones.

If you find a site you like, make an effort to state why you like it. If it doesn't work, state why -- regardless of whether or not you tell the rest of us about your feelings. Just do it!
