Head Studies 8/28/14
We’re taking a little break from the Tuesday Tips for the next few weeks. We are actively preparing a Tuesday Tips Book that will be available at this coming CTN animation expo on November 21-23, 2014. We will still post quality content daily, so stay tuned and get ready (in the near future) for more tips from us!
Happy Ganesha Chaturthi
I had the pleasure of getting to know Satish Ruia when we went to India. He is the most graceful host. And Ganesha is his favorite god. He is the elephant-headed, remover of obstacles and the god of beginnings and wisdom.
There are some important symbolism in Ganesha stature. His large head symbolize thinking big, while his small eyes symbolize concentration. The rope on his left hand removes obstacle. The sweets on his lower left hand is the reward of a wise life. His large ears means he listen more. The ax on his right hand cut unhealthy attachments. He only have one tusk, because he sacrifice one for a good cause. And he bless those in the right path with his lower right hand. His large belly means contentement, for the good and the bad. The banana symbolize material wealth when you pursue the right path and the whole world is at your feet for your asking. The mouse symbolize desire that can cause havoc if you don’t keep it under control.
Hope your having a great Ganesha Chaturthi!

Life Drawing 08/07/14
Very athletic model. It’s rare to see such definition and shapes on female life drawing models. A treat.
Tuesday Tips — Recommendation - On Writing (Stephen King)
This is my favorite how-to book about writing and getting things done. I own it as an audiobook, and I’ve listened to it at least 3 times. Not because I felt I needed to, but because it is as engaging as it is inspirational. There’s no superficial crap or fancy rules about the high and mighty art of writing in this book. It’s called “A Memoir of the Craft” because King approaches this book from his own true and tested experiences and remarkable work ethic. He goes in details about the nuts and bolts of the reality of writing everyday. He really makes you feel the day-to-day obstacles and successes of tackling a hard creative task.
I recommend “On Writing” to any aspiring or working creative artist, especially writers, directors and story artists.
My favorites, sweet lady Snoopy and my ivory rockstud. The most comfortable pump I own. They come in so many different color and I want them all.
