This week has started off great, I sold a painting over the weekend to one of my friends. I also worked on the homework for webpage design. I was given the Manidoo website to redesign and there was not enough information about the site to really redesign a working site because I had no idea what the point of the site was about. All I could do was make the site more functional for the person using it. I cleaned up the navigation and helped out the site with a better layout. With the working website they cram a lot of unneeded information and blogs all on the same page, they could have spread this to multiple pages so the person would not have to continue to scroll on and on and on.... Well the third week is about to start and this project is due tuesday, I hope everyone likes it.

Here is another post. I just read an article in the New York Times art section called, "A Guided Tour in the Palm of Your Hand."http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/15/arts/design/15design.html?ref=design
The Cooper-Hewitt National design Museum has an application that lets the viewer see art work and objects in the palm of their hands. I find this to be a great innovative idea because it lets more people around the world see art and design and could potentially get more people to be patrons of the museum. With technology now it allows anyone to see or experience something they would not be able to because they might live in a different location or are broke college students. Well I have nothing more to write about, check out the link. Also Artie Lange is still in the hospital after he stabbed himself nine times over winter break. Artie Lange, known as Howard Stern's sidekick or the Coke Snorting Pig on Mad TV season one. I hope Artie will return to the Howard Stern show because his humor is greatly missed.

Here is my second post of the semester. First off I would like to say is Dennis Hopper is in the hospital with prostate cancer. I hope the star of Easy Rider, True Romance, and Land of the Dead pulls it through. Other then that we had yesterday off for Martin Luther King day so I came up with ideas for my flash slide show and reacquainted myself with Adobe Dreamweaver. I have not seen any new websites worth mentioning but when I do I will definitely post it on my blog. Are personal websites are due Thursday and I have already posted mine from the previous semester. Sooner then later I would like to recreate a new personal webpage but the one I have now is sufficient enough. Time is a big factor. Well I hope you enjoyed this blog, I need to get back to work because class is about to start.

Today is January 12th and I jut started my last semester at the University of Akron. I just had Web Design 2 for the second time and I really want to learn more about CSS, HTML, rollovers using DreamWeaver and how to organize my projects. Taking Web 2 again will be great because I am familiar with the subject matter and there are so many things to learn that I believe there should be a minor in Web Page design at the University of Akron. Other then that it is my first day back at the University of Akron Myers school of art and I can not wait to learn Flash, and After Affects. Also a great website I saw is called, www.primaryflight.com, a site dedicated to new artists. The site shows pictures of their work, blogs, and videos. Some artists include Shepard Farey and Ron English. This is a great site to see some creative talent. Also in New York City this week the improv group, Improv Everywhere scheduled a mass group of people to forget their pants and to ride the subway in their underwear. Only in New York do they get to have fun with their commute to work. Peace out!
