What are some good blogs that I can follow? I will follow back : )?
I have a street art blog and I'm looking for some really cool blogs to follow...probably in these categories but not necessarily:
It is a political blog
What does this face symbolize? I see it everywhere?
In that picture, the face in the top left?
Someone is putting stickers of that face all around school, and I was just wondering what it means.
It was created by Shepard Fairey. It is a portrait of Andre the Giant, It is usually accompanied by the words "Obey".
It is an example of street art and viral marketing. The image was distributed by skaters across the country and eventually became widely known.
Shepard Fairy is known more for his Obama "Hope" poster
how do you think tox will react to banksy's piece about him?
i personally would fire a paint gun at that camera, break that case off and paint all over it.
do you think he'll take it as a compliment or see as if hes declared war?
i think banksy's getting out of hand, first robbo now tox. graffiti deserves as much respect as street art, banksy's a hypocrite if he hates graff
don't bother saying what you think about tagging cos if its against you probably have no experience in graff and should die
Bit extreme saying they should die
http://graffitink.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Graffiti-name-Risk.jpg - stuff like this = good
http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1330/5118099938_ebe3941e9a.jpg stuff like this = pointless
http://www.streetartutopia.com/?attachment_id=3427 - stuff like this = good
But to answer your question, I don't think tox will be pleased... I'm not a huge fan of banksy but it's quite funny what he did...
I need a name for my fashion blog?
I want it to be on blogspot.And to be quite
simple:all white or all black.So, not a huge
fuss.I want to post lots of outfit posts, and
also talk about fashion in high school(i find
very interesting the battle to be unique,
especially in art high schools, but also in regular high schools like mine).I wanna post
street style photos and it's not going to be
hard to find great outfits because i live in a
huge fashion forward city.I wanna post my
thoughts about collections and random facts
(literature combined with the art of fashion also), but mainly i want it to be about regular
style(tho not like ugg's or ugly trends).Oh and
my name is Maria if that helps.Probably i
won't like to use "fashion" in my blog name
it's just too common.Am I over thinking this?
Am I being Unrealistic?
Okay so last night I was talking to my mom and I was really upset about getting back into the swing of things and going back to school. I said its not school but I told her I will never be happy living a normal life. Doing normal things. I want to be that girl that everyday is something new. I just cant go threw life like that. My mom always says I’m unrealistic; I want to be well know for acting; singing; writing books; fashion design etc. I want to be well known; as a good role model; and I want to be share all my talent.
But every since I was little this was what I wanted but my mom wouldn’t even let me try it; she always said that she knows I have the looks; the talent and blah blah blah; but she says its unrealistic, that no matter how much talent I have its just luck and who you know. But I tell her even if I cant be like famous I could never be what she wants me to be ( a doctor; pharmacist; all the safe jobs) Once I was in a dance recital when I was 7 and did a solo dance and sung dancing in the streets and everyone told my mom that she needs to put me in acting; singing; and everything she can because I was amazing. I feel that on stage is where I belong; and that feelings never left me.
Point being I wont be happy living a normal life; I want to travel the world; use my imagination writing books for teens; performing on stage; designing my own fashion; and being busy everyday and trying new things.
This year I've cried; I've been jealous of these girls (clique girlz; www.cliquegirlz.com/blog) that I talked to before they were famous and there lives; I've looked back and realized that everything I've ever done and enjoyed was like performing arts.
Am I stupid for wanting to do this; is it unrealistic expectation?!
I just dont know what to do anymore should I listen to my mom; or follow my heart? But I do want to know if everyone else thinks that I'd be wasting my time.
It's not unrealistic, but there are far more people out there who can act than there are parts for them. It's not just luck, though. You have to do the auditions. It's not just who you know, either, though it is way easier for people who know someone in the business to get in themselves. But it's more who your agent knows ... Which means, you need to find an agent to represent you.
Here's the way to get Mom to compromise: You do your school work so she feels you'll have an education to fall back on.
You are allowed to have hobbies and interests, so tell her your interests are acting and singing. You get electives at school, so use them for singing and acting classes, maybe also fashion design if that's offered. Try out for the school plays or sing in the talent shows. If teens are allowed to do. Have your friends help you put together a portfolio. If there are auditions in your area, bargain with her that if your grades are good, she will let you go to the auditions. Ask to go to a theater or arts camp in the summer.
None of this will interfere with your regular schooling, so she shouldn't object.
Once you're 18, you can do whatever you want. You can go to NYC or LA. Or you can go to college and study something your parents approve of and still minor in something you want.
It won't ruin your life if you spend a few years trying for your dream. And you have more than one dream, so you have options.
As for writing books for teens, there is nothing stopping yuo from doing that right now. You're not risking or losing anything by just typing stories into your somputer. You'll get better with practice, so you might as well start practicing now. If something looks good enough to send in to a publisher (or literary agency), you can try it and who knows, maybe you'll be telling your parents, "I told you so."
