Second experiment. The drawings I did yesterday really are not my style... if I have a style. I mean, the drawings are only watercolor, usually I use watercolors to give color to my pen and ink sketches. I did not use ink yesterday. I focused on color.
Today I want to isolate the shape so I do not use color. I use my graphite pencils (mainly HB and 2B) but I have tried to apply same rules, obviously, adapting them to graphite techniques.
I chanced upon the website of an ex creative director based in Shanghai, China of a well known ad agency internationally and saw a few inspiring ads done and shared by him.
They are mainly in Mandarin with English subtitles but still touching and thought provoking nevertheless.
Here is his site to share great minds and needless to say, you know who i am referring to now.
Is it pedantic to expect correct English from a company that wants to charge £7,000 for a delicate medical procedure?
When shopping, there are times when bad English doesn't really matter. Take greengrocers, for example; I routinely grumble and scoff when I see “potato's” and “apple's” and “basel and corinder” offered for sale, but a casual approach to grammar doesn't actually make much difference to my enjoyment of the product on offer – you'd have to be pretty pedantic to take your fruit-and-veg custom elsewhere on the grounds of a misplaced apostrophe and some sloppy spelling.
I will miss the smell of my baby's head. He's hot as 100, asleep in the crook of my arm. I'm pretty sure it's the flu everyone's in a panic about. John's had it for a good four days, and I have the sense I'm just waiting my turn (that's the farmer's pessimism in my bones talking), glad at least I'm well enough to take care while John's so ill.
