So yesterday I went to this Persian New Year’s celebration with some people from the Pendulum. We ended up having to leave before all of the festivities really got stated, but we did get to participate in one of the traditions: jumping over a fire! It is suppose to clean your sins or something from the year and give you good luck for the year to come. It was terrifying to jump over the fire, but we all did it anyway. I ended up getting some decent shots at the ceremony. Here they are!
Here is the link to this past week’s Pendulum article! I wrote about the red carpet at the Academy Awards!
For my digital art class we were instructed to recreate a previous artists work using Adobe Illustrator. I chose to work from Andy Warhol’s Miss Dior. I loved the piece for it’s color and theme!
Here is a scan of the original Warhol work! (Sorry it is upside down, I can figure out how to rotate it!)
Here is my interpretation of the Warhol!
So yesterday I stumbled across this amazing new mini film/ad for Oliver Peoples eyewear! I have watched it like 8 times already and I find it incredibly beautiful and innovative! It inspires me to make great films! The director is Autumn de Wilde, who is a noted photographer of many indie style musical artists! I love the interesting angles and shots that were achieved as well as the vibrancy of the color and lighting. My favorite aspect however, is that it is in deed an ad, but the glasses are so well placed that it is understated enough to make a it a beautiful video but still an effective advertisement.
Here is the YouTube version, or the link to the Oliver Peoples website and the high quality version!
Here are the links to the last two fashion columns that appeared in Elon University’s The Pendulum.
The first is coverage of the tragic death of Alexander McQueen:
Last week is a review of NY Fashion Week 2010, including Marc Jacobs, Rodarte and Erin Fetherston.
This week’s is fashion tips for men!
Hope you enjoy!
