I love the movie, 5 centimeters per second, which is an animation and it consists of three parts that relate to one another in such a way that it is sure to make you cry at a point. The movie was produced by Makoto Shinkai, and I think the graphics are awesome and very realistic. It’s really a must-watch, as I did for 6 times :) My friend Pınar showed me a blog page where somebody did have a bit time to kill and tracked down some places which were used (as in drawn) in the movie. So here are some of the pictures from that post, and please, watch the movie too :D

So, you see how realistic the animation is now, right? It is, truly a masterpiece :D
I found a website that was focused on sharing typographic based poster designs, TypePoster72, which I had mentioned in my previous post and I wanted to share it here. It’s a website from a freelance logo designer, Graham, and his business identity and studio can be found at ImJustCreative. The updates on TypePoster72 is quite regular, which I think is great because I have proven myself quite unable to do the same thing. Here are some of the recent posters that Graham has posted on TypePoster72 that I liked:

Behance Network is a website I found through TypePoster72 (which is a site that shares typographic posters) and I think it’s a great community for professional artists and designers. Their answer to the “What is Behance?” question is: “Behance is a company that designs products and services that empower the creative world to make ideas happen. Behance is founded on the principle of “Productive Creativity.” Too often, great ideas never materialize. Creative people are rarely lacking inspiration; rather, they lack effective processes and tools to make their ideas happen.The Behance team studies exceptionally productive people and teams working in creative fields. We document the methods and resources that these productive creative professionals use to push their ideas forward. We then develop products and services based on the best practices that we discover through our research.”
The last step of my struggle on not failing my VA202 class (and I really do think I did fail anyway) was a sculpture from styrofoam (the type that is used for isolating buildings in constructions), and here is the only photo of it. It is the only photo because it broke into pieces because of the wind. So making this was pretty frustrating, because I couldn’t make a perfectly smooth surface no matter how I tried, but it was truly fun, though I think I will regret it because I should have gotten the I (incomplete) grade and worked harder on it.
So the purpose of this project was to understand what sculptural is, and how activating 3D space works. And of course, making a great job out of it including the time management and the project process along with the object chosen.
