So I need a touch of help for a project that I have in the works.

I do a lot of silhouette paper cuts and am working a series of illustrated scenes from children's stories.

Tell me your favorite scene from a children's story (not necessarily a picture book) written in full as you remember it. Then I'll take it, make it and post the results. It's for art darlings and would be a big help. ♥

Your Score: The Exotic Lover


50% partner focus, 47% aggressiveness, 65% adventurousness




Based on the results of this test, it is highly likely that:



You prefer your romance and love to wild and daring rather than typical or boring, you would rather be pursued than do the pursuing and, when it comes to physical love, you concentrate more on enjoying the experience rather than worrying about your performance.



This places you in the Lover Style of: The Exotic Lover.



The Exotic Lover is a wonderful Lover Style, and conjures images of the exotic, romantic hero out of a romance novel, or perhaps a slightly dangerous and deadly sexy femme fatale from a noir mystery. The Exotic Lover loves pleasure and is a treasure to date, though it can be difficult to do so because they sometimes tend to be mysterious and reluctant to commit.



In terms of physical love, the Exotic Lover can be quite surprising, as they are often more exciting and adventurous than predicted. Given a little freedom, and the right lover, the Exotic Lover can be a delight in bed.



Best Compatibility can probably be found with: The Liberated Lover (most of all) or the Devoted Lover, or the Romantic Lover.



Congratulations!



If you enjoyed this test, I would love the feedback! Also, you might want to check out some of my other tests if you're interested in the following:

Objections/Conjectures or "Slap a Bumper Sticker on Me" and pretend it's the same as an opinion

Cue rant: and it will be a rant so don't read if you don't want the rant.


"If Willem DeKooning paints his house should anyone give a damn?"
Probably not. Will they, yes, if only to be contrary to my opinion. Is the hand of someone who is considered a great artist golden? Does absolutely everything they touch become 'art'?

So if DeKooning paints a toilet set in the manner of Jackson Pollock is it art? Was he making real art at the time? Yes. Yes he was. Was it a spur of the moment thing? Yes. Is this kinda a stupid conversation? Hell yes.
The man painted a toilet seat for his outhouse. If anything this says something about his level of regard for Pollock more than anything. Painting in the manner of a acquaintance on something you're going to shit on seems hardly complimentary. I actually accosted my painting teacher Kim in the hall before I hit on that particular thought. Kim agreed that was in line with what DeKooning thought of Pollock. "He thought Pollock couldn't paint."

If any artist paints his house with a spray gun is it still art? Is something we do unintentionally have the possibility of become art tens or thousands of years in the future?

Admittedly they knock the commercial arts, all of these fine artists. Well not all, but enough. Our messages are too easy to read, they don't take brains, just eyesite. Well my dearies if you look in any history book and look beyond the scope of years, deeper and deeper we are what remain to make a civilization. It's the craftsmen, the designers and the architects who are preserved in time. We have roman pots and samurai swords and screen paintings of geishas that were sold as prints. We have belt buckles and jewelery and books and ideas and things made so they could be straight forward and understood, yet still carry on it time. I don't understand how anyone could knock something, a field that has such far reaching powers of communication.

Communication that is one of the most valued things in any field or profession. ... and the knock us for being able to present things clearly and make them desired? It just doesn't make sense.

Back to the subject of art as simply a matter. And what can be considered it, DeKooning's toilets do not count in my book, however I may count them among amusing black puns now that I have arrived at that other place in my mind. heh.

We were discussing in the same class that the matter of the toilets came up that art has a lot to do with intent and what the limits of that intent are. Are they social decency? Often not it seems from several of the examples that came up. For instance, a man who vomits on art works that are considered master pieces, but that he doesn't like. So far this fecund piece of humanity has hit two, both abstract pieces, one of which a Modrian.What makes him think he has the right to behave like this?

Society has parameters and occaisionaly they must be broken for reform. But art cannot come from the malicious intent of boors like this. It's not art, it's simply destruction and degradation and ignorance and stupidity at it's height. It is like a high school emo-boy blogging maliciously. It's as if all the things we tried to leave behind as we as a world stepped deeper into social reforms are being channeled into new outlets. Humanity doesn't get better or kinder they simply find different outlets to be the same as always. Don't like a people kill them, don't like an idea then step on it.

Don't like the art fine. But that does not give you the right to destroy or change it. It isn't yours you jackass.

Really, where I'm from we don't call that performance art. We call it being an asshole.

As a general rule, I dont use my Livejournal. I have a real journal which I actually do bother with and no one else reads, so that works.

But Pan's Labyrinth is amazing and I need to ramble. I don't think I've been that moved, scared, disgusted or sad at a movie in a very long time. It reminded me of why eactly I'm at art school to push my skills as oppesed to just taking the easy route with engenniering.

Like a visual campaign that one voice could create and I could only begin to dream.

I've finally settled into my apartment in Cincinnati.

It's so sweet. My rooms are awesome, with a great view and wonderful light. The only real downside to them is that I can hear everything. But it's way cool.

The school is huge and stunning. It also has great views, actually in my personal belief most of cincinnati has gorgeous views. I love the buildings and the landscape surrounding the city.

I'll have pictures up for ya'll in due time.

Lots of love.

Update

briar_noir
So yeah.. my journal is back to being ugly.
That's okay, I really don't mind. It's now also far easier to read than it was, so it's all good. <3

For anyone who is interested, I'm flying out for Cincinnati on August 18th. So if you want to come and hang out with me some more before I leave that would be cool. Not that I'm not going to be back, but you know.... it may be awhile. ^^;

I'm starting to get excited about starting school. My class list is awesome and the school is only half a block away which is nice. However, buying everything for my apartment is going to be a bitch and a half. At least I'll get to decorate as I wish.

Also need to buy a cookbook... hm.

Speaking of cooking. Tomorrow is my mum's birthday. So as our years old tradition dictates I get to make her a cake. That makes me happy because I love to bake, despite the mess that comes with it. Can anyone say chocolate?

Yummy.


What else, what else... I finally bought myself an iPod. I love it.
It's beyond great to have all of my music in one exceedingly convient place. Make it alot easier to move it too. <

That's it. TTFN kids

Fixed

Yay. Leave it to my mum and a phone to fix everything.
Looks like I'm going to Cincinnati, and getting a single room for myself.

Pretty cool. <3
