I’m thinking about doing a 365 project with my phone’s camera (since I’ve never had one!!!). It would mostly be an easy way for me to get everyday practice with on frames, composition, lighting, etc. Yes or no?
Next semester is going to be really, really crazy. I’m going to be working pretty much non-stop with my friends Matt, Nick, and Mike to bring you guys some crazy new stuff with Go Shinjuku, our new collaboration group.
My friend Matt got a grant to make five anime-style, live-action shorts, and we’re on a timeline to get them done by the end of the semester.
That being said, I’ve decided to turn this blog into a more inspiration focused blog. So less written posts and videos about politics, and more pictures of comics and androgynous chicks.
I don’t think you guys will mind the change. And just to show you how hard core our new group is, I’ve included a test shot from our upcoming action short.
So I hope you guys continue to follow me as well as my new group!
UPDATE: There are officially 60 (one photo/day for two months) items queued up on my tumblr. So there will at least be enough material to get me to Spring Break! :D
A new ad campaign in Mozambique by Associação da Luta Contra o Cancer (ALCC) is using Wonder Woman, Catwoman, She-Hulk and Storm to promote self-examinations for breast cancer prevention.
The ad copy states:
Nobody’s immune to breast cancer. When we talk about breast cancer there are no women or super women. Everybody has to do self-examination monthly. Fight with us against the enemy and, when in doubt, talk to you doctor.
The images are quite striking. The faces of the characters are only partially seen, but the characters are easy identifiable. And while we often see women feeling touching their breasts quite often in comics, the art here is not sexual or exploitative and has almost a solemn feel to it.
I’d like to see these ads in other counties; it’s a very compelling concept.
