BACK THIS KICKSTARTER: Kiandra Park’s “C’est La Vie,” film
Kiki and her boyfriend met on New Years Eve. They fell in love in Paris. Their long distance relationship endures ups and downs, but Kiki is sure he is her soul mate; her psychic told her so. Kiki relocates to Paris in a final attempt to make her relationship work, but on her journey she discovers the thing she least expects and learns to surmount her biggest obstacle.
Created by the person who wrote and directed the short film adaption of the novel, “Black Girl in Paris,” which debuted on HBO not too long ago, NYU Tisch School of the Arts alum Kiandra Parks is back with this black and white film discussing the ins and outs of love, in the most romantic city in the world.
"C’est La Vie," is in its last week till the Kickstarter timeline ends. Help Kiandra reach her goal of $15,000 by clicking here!
don’t save as jpeg
as a former yearbook editor and designer, let me explain this further
if youre only planning on posting your art online, them please save it as .png ;this is also better for transparencies as well
please, if youre planning of printing your art, NEVER use png. it makes the quality of the image pretty shitty. use jpeg or pdf instead. and always set your work at 300dpi to get a better printing quality - this means, the images are crisper and sharper and theres no slight blurriness. i had a talk with my friend who is currently taking design, and pdf is much better to use when youre working with a bigger publishing company because it still has the layers intact, but if youre only planning on printing your stuff at staples or at some small publishing store, the jpeg is the way to go.
this has been a public service announcement
This week’s goal is to fill in the petals.
Oh my god, it was turrible. I though since I wasn’t using 834757 blues like last week, this week would be easier.
It wasn’t. At all.
It took me four hours, staying extra late, to just do the petals.
But they came out so beautiful, but the petal nearly broken me.
Next week, the moon, stars and stamen then doing all over again with the sky for the third and final layer.
//Absurdly helpful for people writing royal characters and/or characters who interact with royalty and members of the nobility.
Citizen is simpler and more beautiful~ but just in case anyone needs this.
Honey, I Love and Other Love Poems
Eloise GreenfieldLove don’t mean all that kissing
Like on television
Love Means Daddy
Saying keep your mama company
till I get back
And me doing it
Sixteen poems tell of love and the simple joys of everyday life, seen through the eyes of a child: playing with a friend, skipping rope, riding on a train—or keeping Mama company till Daddy gets back.
Each of these sixteen “love poems” is spoken straight from the heart of a child. Riding on a train, listening to music, playing with a friend…each poem elicits a new appreciation of the rich content of everyday life. And each poem is accompanied by a beautiful drawing, both portrait and panorama, that deepens the insights contained in the singing words.
