Try to guess!

Dear friends!Welcome to the 5th day of my Art Marathone!

Today I want to offer you an unusual game. Be warned that this game can grab you for more than one night. But it is better if you manage to captivate playing with someone else. So it will be even more interesting.

So, you will draw words, but you should draw them in the abstract. Select any word or concept and try to draw it without using any symbols. You cannot draw anything specific. For example, if you draw the word “prickly” – you have to do without the hedgehog, if paint the word “wet” – there are no characters in the form of drops!

Select any five words and draw them: each one on a separate sheet. You can play with the color, use different prints, put blots, making soft fill or dry strokes. And then arrange a guessing game with a friend. He must guess your word.Try to guess mine now!

The Main Exibit

Dear friends!

Clip of Russian band ‘Leningrad’ gathered 50 million views and nearly every adult in Russia in the course of the story. Why song about the louboutin shoes is so popular? I think, we identify with the heroine, Cinderella. In our reality, where social lifts is almost absent, one of the main myths – a fairy tale about Cinderella.

Russian Cinderella understands the motives of the heroine and try on this situation herself. At the same time the image of “Cinderella” ironically served. This helps to improve self-esteem due to the step that follows after the identification, – separating themselves from the screen image (she is – stupid, but with me it will not happen). In the song, the author mocks the false values of a primitive ideology of consumption of those who want to be as “at louboutins”.

The exhibit is based on a technique known yet by Hodja Nasreddin: Dodger himself comes across on his cunning. We find it hard to be truthful: Random wish we accept as true needs. And in the video, we safely laugh at our fears and lies. To understand the message of this song you even don’t need to know Russian language, just enough to see the clip.

Waiting for your impressions, friends!

Summer Reading

Hello, friends! Do you remember these long-long lists of ‘must read’ books we were getting from our literature teachers before summer vacations? These ‘nuts’ were for real bookworms teeth.

My summer to read list not so giant, as it was in school, but much more effective. Well, I like to read books on self-development topic.

For this summer I choose 3 of them I haven’t read yet:

“The art of making deals” by Donald Trump.

“How to make big money in small business” by Jeffrey Fox.

“Where’s my cheese?” by Spencer Johnson. Can’t wait to read this book especially. Bunch of reviews says this little fairy tale changed the lives of many people. They are promising: after reading it you will never look at the world in the old way.

You might ask: Only 3 books? And that’s it? Well, someone can read 20 of such books per summer and nothing changes, any visible effect on his life. Because such kind of books are very special, and you need to learn how to read them in a proper way.

Usually people hungry for success begin to simply “swallow” the books on self-develppment topic one by one and brag on what they read later, because there is nothing else to brag about. I feel sorrow about them. The main thing is not how much books about success you read, but what is the efficiency of the book. Better to read 2 books instead of 20, but apply knowledge in practice. These type of books need slowly path of reading, it’s not novels, where you temped to figure out how it ends. The written should be considered and analyzed.

During the reading of the book, ask yourself a wide variety of questions. What can this advice give me?

What can I get?

How much does the author’s life look like mine?

And try to check everything in practice!!!!!!!!!

Read these books not for reading, but for transforming one’s personality. Ridiculous reading will take away only your time and will not allow you to approach success and freedom.

And some other books I am going to read just for fun:

Novels of Jane Austen – the perfect beach reading: for the decency in these books about love, the real passions are boiling. And most important for us the main thing – in the final is always a WEDDING.

Pelham Grenville Woodhouse “Jeeves and Worcester”. Model butler, obedient loafer, endless prudish aunts – in general, the best sample of English humor which I adore!

These books I am going to read in English. And one Russian book of my favourite detective writer: “Planet Water” by Boris Akunin is a new, albeit retrospective, story of the heroic handsome Fandorin . However, any book from this series can be re-read again and again – despite the fact that Erast inevitably gets older.

Create a fashion collage

Dear friends!

In this blog I want to share some tips in fashion collage creation.

First of all, decide what image you want to use, male or female. And maybe the one and the other? Then scroll through the magazines and get picture which you like the most. It is necessary to choose the head for your future fashion look.

I decided to create a dress. Cut the required part, put it on a clean sheet of paper which suits chosen part (A4 or A5). Glue the item on the list. Use a pencil and draw the general outlines of the future silhouette of the dress.

In the process of drawing something you can change your mind and easily break conceived boundaries. It’s ok.

I drew with black liner 0.4 and fill space with crayons. It is more convenient and faster. Note that the cutted piece is better somehow “connect” with pattern you draw (I eventually decided to use filter and make whole composition pattern black and white, colorful video can be found at my Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BOzQXpOFFue/?taken-by=angefarouche_art_fashion_world).

That is so easy and simple, you can create unusual images using a duet of zentangl and collage. You can tell any fashion story using the considered technique. I wish you irrepressible experimentation and active creativity!

Арт-каникулы

Дорогие друзья! Так сложилось, что у меня уже второй год подряд начинается с рисования. Новогодние каникулы – это просто таки замечательное время, чтобы отдохнуть душой и телом, нарисовать и заинстаграмить кучу всего интересного. На этот раз я принимаю участие аж в двух марафонах: один – серия акварельных зарисовок по любимому сериалу “Шерлок”, а второй – фэшн-марафон в стиле зентангл. Пока что делюсь с вами первым выполненным заданием из фешн-марафона.

Как вам нравится туфелька Золушки?

Вы за какую версию – цветную или черно-белую?

 

Жду ваших ответов в комментариях и отправляюсь смотреть очередной урок по ИЗО, как мы его называли в школе и рисовать скрипку акварелью. То ли еще будет!

 

P.S. Всем в первые новогодние дни желаю добра, любви и увлекательного хобби!!!

Trampoline

Dear friends!

Here I want to share an idea of cool and sporty Xmas gift, which makes excited not only kids, but also adults.

Trampoline a versatile and multi-functional simulator, which can easily replace any exercise (10-15 minutes of intense jumping on a trampoline can be equated to running 2-3 kilometers) and beyond.

Jumping at the tranpoline:

reinforce large and small muscles of the back, body, legs, and, in principle, train all our body literally from head to fingertips;

each landing on springy trampoline equals twice the force of gravity, so from regular workouts will strengthen not only muscles but also the bones;

improve the coordination of movements, the work of the vestibular apparatus and the motility of the feet.

gymnasts on trampoline, it is like a cat from any position capable to land on his feet (to jump without harm to health, it is necessary to use right the knees, ankle and, of course, head);

stimulate blood circulation, providing oxygen to the brain, improving its efficiency, and hence the concentration, memory and attention.

in my opinion, doctors are obliged to prescribe trampoline to inattentive people and those whose profession is associated with an active mental activity; finally, the trampoline sport it is a very effective antidepressant.

Do you believe in Santa?

Dear friends!

The daughter of my friend from Turkey goes to kindergarten. And there she has a boyfriend – Mustafa. And somehow children start to talk about Santa Claus. A Turkish children do not believe in him. And the only daughter of my friend insisted that Santa Claus exists. What the teacher said that on the feast actors wear Santa outfits and congratulate the children. And my friend’s daughter replied that the real Santa Claus comes at night when everyone is asleep and leaves presents under the Xmas tree. She said, and burst into tears of despair. Then Mustafa, this little gentleman, said: “Yes, I also believe in Santa Claus.” The honor of the beauty was saved.But apparently doubts crept in a child’s soul, and in the evening, Mustafa asked his mother whether there is Santa Claus. And mom probably told him that no son, no Santa Claus, it’s all lies.

So, the next day Mustafa went to the daughter of my friend and whispered in her ear:- I have to tell you something. Santa Claus is dead! That is not a gentleman behaviour to tell the girl: you are fool, there is no Santa Claus, thanks to you I exposed like idiot yesterday in front of all guys. And still immature, but a man’s brain of Mustafa decided that the best way out – to kill Santa Claus. That is, like he was, but he seems to die and is not exist.

And you, do you believe in Santa?

Waiting for the evening

Dear friends!

Outside, frosty and sunny, but I don’t want to go out to work. Today I would prefer to stay at home, in warm. This evening, after work I want to finish this embroidery with company of “Westworld” series.

Who has not watched I recommend it (especially likely to appeal to fans of science fiction)! Time will not be wasted. That only is the cast (Hopkins, Harris, Wright) and music (composer Games of Thrones, of Radiohead, Amy Winehouse and others in and performance of mechanical piano), and of course the idea of “person can be modeled on the tablet, and fact that we are no different from machines. So waiting for the evening impatiently.
