Whilst busy with projects there’s been quite a few things that have caught my senses this month. The opening to the Common Wealth Games is on in the background and I’m so very impressed on the ceremony. It’s a beautiful site to watch the fantastic array of colours, traditions, music and multicultural harmony between the 71 Common Wealth countries all having such a great time, minus all the recent bad press the media have been banging on about. The ‘UFO’ type projection balloon is an ingenious idea and the Henna paintings was a lovely touch. Hopefully this will squash the rumours and will create a memorable CWG 2010. The vibe seems very exciting and vibrant and must be a treat for the participants involved. With the recent modernisation of India, I’m glad the traditional and indeginious communities we’re expressed well. The variety of costumes and designs and colours are a real inspiration. The yoga celebration was an amazingly soothing display, enough to make anyone take up yoga I think!
In some other good news, I’m pleased to have a cover feature on Wonderlance’s MDM magazine for the October issue which can be viewed here:
Wonderlance’s unique and exclusive Monthly Digital Magazine offers a great way of showcasing professional freelancers worldwide, providing a platform to innovate, inspire, share ideas and talent for any artist and non artist alike.
“The MDM is a place where great minds can inform and educate through exclusive interviews, under the premise that knowledge is what empowers the human being and knowledge should be offered to everybody, regardless of their personal background and circumstances in life.”
It’s a great place to catch interesting articles, exclusive interviews and much much more on all those relevant worldwide issues so give this is look in, the interviews are always great. Some favorites this month include an interesting article on Dreams, with an interview with Professor Dierdre L. Barrett. There’s also a good read on the importance of organic foods and some very inspirational 1950’s inspired illustration styles from Sydney based illustrator and designer, Supriya Ramlu of Sho’nuff Love Illustrations. Check it all out, not to be missed fo’ sho!
There’s alot more I wanted to add today but will have to leave it all for another post. So I’ll end with an sketch inspired by the news that Smallville returns for it’s last season on TV and we actually see the transformation of Clark Kent (Tom Welling) into Superman. I’ve not watched all the seasons since I thought the stories over the years became a little dull and too ‘teeny’ but I’ve heard that interesting story arcs from the DC Comics library have been played with along the way and has introduced many characters a kin to the man of steel. One particular annoucement I heard is that Blue Beetle and Booster Gold will be featured this season! I think the future has a lot in store for these two characters so should be a good episode. Here’s the sketch, well started off with some line art which I figured I colour quickly, just for funness so enjoy!
