It would be impossible to visit or live in Indonesia and not be exposed to one of the country's most highly developed art forms, batik. On your first visit to a batik store or factory you will undoubtedly experience an overwhelming stimulation of the senses - due to the many colors, patterns and the actual smell of batik. Only through repeated visits and a bit of study will the types of designs and their origins become apparent.<br /><br />The word batik is thought to be derived from the word 'ambatik' which translated means 'a cloth with little dots'. The suffix 'tik' means little dot, drop, point or to make dots. Batik may also originate from the Javanese word 'tritik' which describes a resist process for dying where the patterns are reserved on the textiles by tying and sewing areas prior to dying, similar to tie dye techniques. Another Javanese phase for the mystical experience of making batik is “mbatik manah” which means “drawing a batik design on the heart”.<br /><br />Many Indonesian batik patterns are symbolic. Infants are carried in batik slings decorated with symbols designed to bring the child luck, and certain batik designs are reserved for brides and bridegrooms, as well as their families. Some designs are reserved for royalties, and even banned to be worn by commoners. Consequently, a person's rank could be determined by the pattern of the batik he or she wore. Further study to the geometry of symbolism in Indonesian batik showed the applicability of fractal geometry in traditional designs.<br />Despite its inherited status, batik is not a static art form. Practicing from the mainland of Yogyakarta and Solo to the northern coastal cities of Java such as Pekalongan, continues to grow and adapt to cultural and environmental influences. The result is a series of distinctive colors and patterns, each telling their own unique story. You can know the motifs and philosophy of batik in Indonesia in the book Traditional Batik Patterns, Traditional and Modern Batik Original Indonesia.

That's the iconic status as a traditional art form and craft added by Indonesian batik to the Unforgettable List of UNESCO Cultural Heritage in 2009.<br /><br />Despite its inherited status, batik is not a static art form.

Ao longo das próximas páginas, não estará apresentada apenas uma história do desenho animado, mas sim o esforço de compressão histórico dos desenvolvimentos da linguagem da prática, muitas vezes representada pelo seu desenvolvimento sintagmático interno, ou seja, a narração contida em cada história que o desenho animado nos traz.<br />O livro de Rafael Duarte Oliveira Venancio, baseado nos conceitos de fórmula, de David Bordwell, e de dispositivo, de Jean-Louis Baudry, nos apresenta capítulos importantes do desenho animado. Aborda a consolidação da linguagem no primeiro cinema, a Era Dourada, a ida para o desenho animado para a publicidade e para a televisão, bem como a invasão japonesa com os animes.<br />Estas são apenas as primeiras considerações de um estudo de fórmulas, tal como uma alquimia de desenhos animados. Há a necessidade de falar de outros desenhos animados, mas mesmo assim as páginas de A Fórmula do Desenho Animado são um portal primeiro para aquilo que a cidade dos desenhos animados.

While many other areas of design have commercial aspects, the success of a piece of packaging design is inextricably linked with its ability to sell a product. <I>Packaging the Brand</I> discusses the implications of this commercial function for a designer.<br /><br />It explores methods of visually communicating the value of a product to its target audience and examines the entire lifespan of a piece of packaging: from its manufacture and construction, to its display in various retail environments, to its eventual disposal and the associated environmental concerns.

The #1 important thing to consider when setting up your workspace is "comfort". Remember , you will be<br />sitting here for hours at a time. Make sure your area is well lit and as clutter free as humanly possible. I like<br />to keep inspirational objects and reference material around my work area so I can stay juiced about what I'm<br />doing. (Notice the DangerGirl action figure set over the desk). I also like to keep all my tools with reaching<br />distance so I don't have to break my train of thought to grab a tool while working. I hang them on the wall to<br />keep my desk space clean and clear. I keep a large collection of Video Game mags and manga on hand to<br />use as layout or reference material.<br />If you drink or eat at your desk make sure your food/drink items are secured. I've accidentally spilled more<br />coffee on artwork than I care to mention so now I keep that stuff on a side stool away from my workspace.<br />Comfortable, Clean & Bright!
