Rendering... rendering...

Hey guys!  So the bad new is I had to put the blog header on hold awhile.  The good news is that I may have a chance of maybe possibly getting a 3d job at the Parsons Corporation.  Wish me lots of luck!

Our Purpose

Photobucket Photobucket

When we met up we talked a lot about who we were as a group.  What exactly are the Sons of Turner and what can we actually do?  Maybe we're a group of classmates that critique each other's work.  Maybe we're a new age Salon.  I know I have some thoughts.  I think as long as we can make the time to come together, putting work and school to the side, we can conjure up some amazing ideas.  I consider myself very lucky to be a small part of it.  I took a lot of pictures the other day, and while these may not be my favorites I think they give a peak to the outside world about what we're doing now.  At this point I'm going to be working on a header for the blog.  I'll post the first draft on Friday and see what you all think.

This is definitely NOT turning the blog into something broad and inclusive.
I don't know why I didn't say something yesterday about this; I guess I felt a little embarassed or shy, or something stupid like that. But anyways! We were discussing blogs, their purpose, how they may just take over the social vibe as we know it, but I'm trying to find a balance between that. Have been, I guess.

Art Lingo is a group I set up some time ago, where each week a new artist is posted, their work is sampled and then people can discuss it if they wish; how the art makes them feel, what they think about the artist as a person, so on and so forth. I'm planning in the near future to have a live event of this, perhaps a trip to the Chicago Cultural Center, for all of us to sit and talk about the artists featured there, perhaps grab some coffee?

Anyways, here's the link to the group, feel free to join and delve into the discussions!

decision time

What is the blog. Who is it for?
We began to talk about that here at the studio a bit today. Not so much THIS blog but the blog as a tool or a communication device.
We also talked about one of Tony's paintings, a work in progress.
And just began to touch on specific issues for Nick and Bradlee but that never got far in the group format.
And we tried Art Bingo and I got some good feedback on that from Joe and a bunch of yous.
And Gabs had the courage to tell me something critical about one of my pieces which I was grateful about. We covered some ground.
I think I know enough about myself to be sure that I will always treasure time in conversation way more than email and blogging and virtual crits and cyber groups. Sometimes I argue things and propose things, and find myself disliking the things that I'm saying. Sometimes I need to test the water. I dont think I know anything with more certainty than when I woke up this morning but I feel like I put some thoughts out into the wind.

Wide Body of Work

I just found this guy. His style is so different from painting to painting in his archives. I like them.
