    Ecuadorian_artisan_177_

    Ecuadorian artisans have the ability to create beautifull product but they don’t have innovative designs. My mission statement consist in work with a small Ecuadorian community making innovative design with natural resources using their abilities as artisans and start making designs that people can market. I want to make this the beginning of a successful expanding interest in the artisan world starting from our own roots in Ecuador.

    One Interesting video to review:

  • I know how to sketch! But I don't know how to draw. What I mean by that is I don't know how to draw well, good, great, etc. Is is important that I know how to draw good, great, etc?

    Pencil_177_

    I was always told to do sketches before you get on illustrator, photoshop, in-design, etc. I thought it was a waste of time. Plus I can't draw all that well. (which I will talk about in the next blog) I was told to do more then 30, more then 50. Sometime even more then 100. Even though I didn't like doing the sketches I would do them and then more I did sketches for the projects I would get the easier it would be to do 5 sketches then 10 sketches and before I knew it I was doing about 20 to 50 sketches for projects that I had. I understand now why I need sketches. So Now.....I'm wiser and I do my sketches before I start anything on the computer.

    I wonder does anybody feel the same way as I do about sketches? Do you love them? Do you hate them? Or you don't care, you just do it?

  • The Peace Pledge

    Peace, Communication Design

    This is my idea for achieving world peace:

    Take the Peace Pledge as follows:

    I will not kill or otherwise harm another human being in the name of God.

    Upon taking this pledge, a person will become an "ULTRA" of their own belief system whether religious or not: for example, an ULTRA Christian, an ULTRA Hindu, an ULTRA Muslim, an ULTRA Atheist, or whatever......In this way will we know who we are dealing with as an individual.

    Who violates this pledge, becomes an Ex-ULTRA . Yes, we fire you and you cannot regain the ULTRA status. This includes membership responsibility, government official participation, ie, you can't take the pledge and say that your individual duty is different from official duty.

    .A non-ULTRA is everyone else. Obviously, criminals, military, and others who may kill or harm without invoking God's name for some other purpose, are in a special category of non-ULTRA. They are simply professional non-ULTRAs and yes, they may achieve the ULTRA status at the time they decide to stop killing and harming. There will be a date assigned to each ULTRA (since '08).A person who maintains an ULTRA status since birth will be revered.

    ULTRAs who pledge the goal of world peace will identify as a group rather than get distracted with their differences of religion and nationality. We must design a starting place for world peace through PLURALISM and for me, taking The Peace Pledge is the start.

    Sure school not only gives you a wonderful start and the fundamentals. I am a perfectionist, to a point i really dont have a social life. I devote everyday in my education because i feel that if im 12 hours from my family and from the city i love im going to make it worth it.

    I havent slept at all this week mostly because ive been working so hard and stressing out (panic attack!) I shot so much on my break for school all i do is stay at my computer and work. I have given myself the flu... thats all i can come up with at this point. Perhaps i got it from someone at school or the little boy i watch. I feel awful and i have class in a couple of hours im debating about going. I cant keep food down. (dont worry im getting my project 1 accomplished)

    My point is i am a nerd- so much of a nerd that i dont even like leaving my computer for more than 5 hours- i get worried. But also my work ethic isnt the most healthiest and i need to work on that so im not giving myself panic attack and staying up all night and then getting sick about it.

    The outcome... beautiful work that im proud of and the beginning of a great portfolio. Anything for becoming a photo director one day.
