Coca Cola ad

A while ago I noticed this ad at bus stops and in magazines from Coca cola, it looks okay at first like a normal ad but then upon closer inspection you can see that for some unknown reason they have airbrushed the man's nipple out out. I think that it is a silly thing to do and what was the reasoning behind this. The intention of sex appeal was there other wise they wouldn't have used a topless man, airbrushing out his nipple  is a massive contradiction. I just find this to be quite odd.


Disney's snow white and the seven dwarfs

Disney's snow white and the seven dwarfs is a film that I used to watch as a child and didn't fully appreciate how good it was for the time. Released in 1937 they used Cel animation and a team of  people who hand drew each part of the scene.

 Cel animation is where they use thin sheets of paper to draw on, then over lap a new piece and using a light box, traced over the first drawing and added additional moments so that the character appears to move. It is incredible at how long this took to make, which was 3 years. This must have took a lot of hard work, dedication and patience to create this amazing film that in the 20th and 21st century people still like to watch. I don't think this film ever get's enough credit for just how amazing the production process was.

The Ring of celestial bliss

This is an amazing piece of architecture named the ring of celestial bliss, it was made to celebrate the Taiwan lantern festival , people from all around the world come to celebrate here and people pray for more  blessings in the years to come. The concept of the structure is "blessings as high as the sky" I really love how they have portrayed the concept, making the structure look as if it is floating.

The structure uses projectors and LED lighting to create the stunning display of patterns, It's incredible how technology can make these iconic structures.This was made by J J Pan and Partners who are a company that specialize in architecture 


Mystery graffiti owl in Hanley

This graffiti owl can be seen spray painted in various places around Hanley Stoke-On-Trent. The creator of this art work is unknown, but it's really nice to see actual art and because they have sprayed this in different locations it becomes their sort of trademark. This work is inspiring because it is taking graffiti, which people mostly associate with vandalism, negativity and it has made it into art and something that people would want to look at. The person who created this must have put thought into it because they always choose run down dilapidated area's to create the work. It seems as though it livens up the area, so that it's not so dull.
