RE: Episode 13: The Caldecott
@nessillustration Time ago in auditions for orchestras, women were rejected systematically because the judges believed that women didn't have the sensibility to play an instrument at is best. They have to start making blind auditions were the solicitant was playing behind a curtain and everything changed.
RE: Episode 13: The Caldecott
I think the two points made are equally right. "Do what you love and let the world catch up" of course. And that you can go after the prize like an athlete can go after a gold medal, I mean training hard for it, focusing on it, studying your competitors, the tendencies like "now they value a lot that you put an integrational message on your book", etc.
In one hand the prestige of the prize and the income that comes with it attracts certain people and is normal that a certain environment is created and these persons eventually know each other and then you have politics, private interest, etc It happens in every competitive world.
But on the other hand is art, and if someone comes with something new and revolutionary, and eventually someone always come, they can not look away.
So you have this string of like "orthodox predictable" winners and then from time to time you have a new fresh one who changes the game really, or at least evolved the game bringing something new to the table.
The best example is the impressionist. The story about impressionist when they were banned from the "Salon de Paris" ruled by the Académie des Beaux-Arts, (copy and paste from Wikipedia)"The Académie had an annual, juried art show, the Salon de Paris, and artists whose work was displayed in the show won prizes, garnered commissions, and enhanced their prestige. The standards of the juries represented the values of the Académie"
...and they created his own show and changed everything..., until the next change.
So there are politics and there is art too, with all the things that art comes with, search, discovery, evolution etc. Everyone has to choose what is his way, or most regularly, what percent. like 80% art and 20%commercial or vice-versa etc.
Great post. You guys are in the trade for some time now so, every subject you touch, more or less important or relevant, sure you three have something interesting to say about it
RE: Are certain items copyrighted?
Well, perhaps and most probably, they don't want to give free adds in his work. I create my own brands and sometimes can be related to some specific brand because of that brand become popular culture, you can use that if is a healthy product or avoid that doing yours completely different.
There are the "educational purposes" reasons too. For example, I like to make my characters with different peculiarities, and one of that is a craving for something. At first my hero I thought to be crazy about candies, but in second thought, sugar is epidemic now. Ten years ago, food companies didn't add sugar in every product. Today yes, and they are only like ten big companies that compete for clients worldwide, so we are all overdose. Is not that sugar is bad, is the dosage, venom is in the dosage always. Since I left sugar, my joints stop hurting, and I have a lot of energy over the full day. Plus now I can taste every food since consuming sugar in every meal dulls our taste too. So I have I personal opinion about sugar and I didn't want to create a hero who eats candy at the first opportunity. So I change it to avocados.
I hope it helps
By the way, great work! The father and son Octopus taking a shelfie is crazy!!!
RE: Simona interviewed by Will Terry on his youtube channel !
I synthesize my thoughts about my last comment on one phrase:
"Art digital techniques and technology, model business, distribution methods, and clients are changing so fast now, like on everyday basics, and traditional schools are not" So we need some not traditional education and that is why these websites, podcasts, forums, and courses are here, to supply a new demand.
RE: Are certain items copyrighted?
Hi! There's a lot of gray areas on copyright. Recently there's have been a commotion in the photography world die to artist Richard Prince selling Instagram photos that he literally copies from other accounts, frame it and sells it for 90k. And the judges say in this case that is legal.
So it can depend on different things like if it has some artistic value, etc. Mostly "fair use"
Copy and paste from an article, and I'll put the link below:
"Prince has managed to come out on top of his legal battles because of the complexity of fair use (and also because he's very rich). Fair use in the art world can be a relatively amorphous thing, because much of contemporary art is built on historical or popular imagery. Fair use requires consideration of the difficult-to-define "purpose" and "nature" of the work, the amount of copyrighted material used, and the effect the appropriation might have on the market value of the original work. Courts evaluate fair use on a case-by-case basis, and the boundaries aren't firmly planted."
RE: "TMATP book" I can use some help with my english.
I checked out "The 35th of May, or Conrad's Ride to the South Seas" and is great! I inspire myself a lot on anime series like "One Piece" which I'm really fan, but I read a lot and every book left a seed on us I believed.
Thank you for checking out my Youtube channel. I apologize for my English. I know my pronunciation is not good and I expect to improve it making videos week after week.
RE: This is considered "Nudity"? "SORT OUT!!!!!!"
@kaitlinmakes Thank you! I'll have in mind all that things!!!!
Yes is the direction I want to go. The nudity is not sexualized nor is a whim or purely aesthetic reasons, I want to convey a natural approach to nudity but I understand that every country is in a different place and I don't mind to change the target potential audience on America, for example.
Bytheway, the book is online, in ongoing or in-progress if you prefer, and is totally free. I work every day on it and I updated constantly, so you don't need to buy it!!!
My goal now is to reach as many people as possible and if my work is good and I create an audience, then I can print books, sell prints, merchandise, etc. At the moment only develop the story and reach people.
