Danny Gregory, An Illustrated Journey
This 272-page paperback is almost identical in
size and format to Gregory’s earlier 2008 book entitled “An Illustrated Life”.
But is different on several counts. You’re not buying a re-write of the first
book. First of all, the 40+ artists featured are different from the earlier book
(a mere handful are the same) and secondly, it’s easier to read, with the
artist’s own ‘natural’ voice coming through. Thirdly, rather than journaling in
general, this is about travel journals, so it moves beyond what I call “Object
Drawing” or creating vignettes based around the people and objects that pass
through our lives, but in documenting journey, what it means to document place
or location, given the natural wanderlust or inner explorer that it is
fundamental to many of us. Some like Giorgio Morandi stayed at home and never
moved beyond his studio; another of my heroes, Euan Uglow, did the same. But
that’s not the “natural” condition in which many of us live and create. Most
artists, given the choice, would like to leave home. I constantly dip into his
previous book both to get inspiration and to reinforce validation. What shocked
(and delighted) me originally about the book was that the text read, rather
clunkily, like case studies in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Content-wise, the
contributing artists all seemed to be enormously hung up on creating their own
superstitions or routines around their journaling and sketching ("I never do
this…", "I always do that…"). Text-wise, it read very much like answers to
pre-set questions. Just like the case studies in the book, I too was developing
and had developed my own irrational phobias, setting “limits” for myself just
like a parent quarantining or setting parameter’s for his or her child’s
behavior. Endless potential and enthusiasm is one thing, but most of us need a
(self-imposed) discipline to stay on The Path, especially since we are largely
teaching ourselves how to ‘see’ and create. What the two books have in common is
they both display Danny Gregory’s own penchant for a querky, cartoonish,
irreverent style, loose flowing penmanship with bright enthusiastic colour and
dry wit, mainly in the manner in which Gregory himself sketches and journals.
That said, he overcomes, in both books, his own personal aesthetic by including
a very wide range of artistic styles. It’s the broad sweep of personal styles
which keeps me coming back for more. I particularly like the fact that Gregory
replicates the global nature of the illustration/design/art work-worlds today
beyond just a token one or two non-Western contributors. We need to continue
this trend by looking for precedents in non-Western travel journaling such as
Hiroshige, for example. We all “like” artists who work in the same style as
ourselves – that’s justifiable and understandable. But both books have thrown up
for me new artists whose work I’ve either never seen before or who’ve only been
shadowy figures in the background. A mark of success for both books is (a)
whether you are on-message and drawing every day and (b) rushing to the Net to
find out more about individual artists. The advertising exec in Gregory would
like this: you need to have 'bought the product', not just 'seen the ad'. The
first message I’ve absolutely “got” (not just from Gregory’s books but in
particular from Veronica Lawlor who features in the second book). In the case of
(b), I absolutely love Peter Cusack’s biro work (though I could never myself
personally draw commuters as he does) and Simonetta Capecchi (I’ve been on a
panorama jag ever since reading how she operates). Butch Belair’s work in that
book, too, keeps me nourished in the area of watercolor painting. That I don’t
like more of the work in the first book is a reflection of my own personal
taste; they work in a cartoon-illustration style that I’m simply personally ‘
not in to’. That’s okay, because the text is a constant font of knowledge as I
make my own experiments with technique and media. In terms of this recent book,
I identify most strongly with the work of Ian Sidaway (his focus on composition
and lack of text), with artists like Nina Johansson and Will Freeborn providing
me with inspiration watercolour-wise. But, as in the first book, it’s the text
which shines through most vividly for me. I’m either surprised by what other
artists do or I either nod sagely “Yes, I’ve discovered that to be true too!”.
Concepts of “travel” and “journey” The primacy of overseas travel, international
travel, travel ‘abroad’ is always going to be a given. We’ve fetishized tourism
to such a degree these days that it’s hard to swim against that particular tide.
And it goes beyond just eschewing international resorts where one can sit in
splendid cultural isolation, being served food and drink by the natives but
otherwise seeing, talking, relaxing with one’s own. Everyone acknowledges that
sketching on holiday creates a different pace, like swapping a fast car for a
Lee Cunnington Tat
This is my response for the Hand Tattooing
assignment. The initial idea of this is to display aspects of my personal life
and to show some interests of mine. Starting off in the centre of the hand, I
have clearly emphasised who I am, where I live, what I like to do and who my
family are. These topics are displayed in colours such as blue and white (my
favourite colours) not only that they are easy to display on a skin coloured
canvas. For fonts I chose the special Jamiroquai font for major aspects of
myself, as for precise information I used Verdana and Arial for posher styles
like a Curriculum Vitae to display my education. The black text surrounding the
central palm of my hand and on the fingers are StarVader and Jamiroquai fonts.
These emphasise bitesized facts about my personal interests such as music styles
instead of writing full statements. It easily fills the gaps, using the space
given causing no limit to what I can write keeping with the specification of
30-45 degree angles. The colour styles used help centralize what really matters
inside the palm of the hand. The Sky background displays my urge to learn how to
fly an aircraft someday. I've always wanted to be a pilot just as a hobby when I
grow old. Again I have been patriotic like in the Digital Signature by involving
Red White and Blues throughout the tatooing to show my patriotism for my home
how to write a curriculum vitae
The CV - Curriculum Vitae, or resumé - in
Germany is written and presented considerably different to the way it is done in
English speaking countries.
Not only does it have to be written in German
and is called a "Lebenslauf", but there are some major differences that anyone
applying for a job in Germany should be aware of.
"How to write a German
CV" is a 50-page step-by-step guide which takes you through each of the sections
of the CV in turn, and tells you what you should include in a German CV, and
what you should leave it.
It contains tips on formatting and printing
your CV and an insight into the type of things that German employers are looking
