Art History - Interview with Mollinda
:iconarthistoryproject: :iconcommunityrelations: 
As part of Traditional Art History Month I will be interviewing some of  the Traditional Art Community, including your lovely TradART Community Volunteers :aww:
:star:
Today it's the totally awesome Mollinda, former Traditional Art Community Volunteer, now full time mother, artist and all-round darling.

:iconMollinda:
Hi Mollinda, tell us a little about yourself and your style of Art.
Herro, I'm Molly. I paint, I draw, I photograph... I just love art.
I draw and paint from photographs and from life as I love to make mundane, every day objects and situations into something beautiful (hopefully!) but I also cartoon and doodle monsters and all sorts of ridiculous things.
What is it that attracts you to Traditional Art?
I love that it is tangible, that I can move materials around with my fingers and that there's no ctrl+z.

Flemish Primitives
:iconcommunityrelations: :iconarthistoryproject:
Today I would like to take the opportunity to talk a bit about a part of the history of art that's very near to my heart: the Flemish Primitives.
Personally I'm very fond of this topic because it ties in with the history of my country and my love for medieval and late medieval culture. To me, it's fascinating to see how the early book-illustrators and miniaturists branched out to canvas and proceeded to be a driving force in the 15th and 16th century. 
They were called the "Primitives" not because of a  perceived lack of refinement, but because of the groundbreaking changes when it came to topics, iconography and materials used in paintings. During this article, I will hope to relate a brief history of these painters and why they are of such importance to the art as we know it today.
Though it is difficult to pinpoint the exact date of the start of the movement, it is generally said that it started with

Hi STelari, tell us a little about yourself and your style of Art.
I'm a creation addict... and my name is Sylwia (: My personality and interests are clearly visible in what and how I do; a bit twisted, with a creepy shell, sometimes rigid, but I tend to hide a smile in details that require your search.
I'm crazy about trying new things and techniques and what you can see in my dA gallery is just a tip of an iceberg.
What is it that attracts you to Traditional Art?
It's traditional (: Anything I do has a connection to the past and it gives me a chill when I think that some of the techni

Printing: From the Far East to the Printing Press
Illustrations have been hand drawn for many centuries. But as the demand for the distribution of illustration and text increased, people developed printing techniques, and over time this would turn into what we now know as the printing press, the mass production of illustration and text.
Let us take a look at the Far East first, in particular China and Japan where print has been traditionally used as early as the 7th century. The Chinese have been using woodblock printing since the Tang Dynasty (7th Century). This method of printing quickly spread to other East Asian countries, including Japan. The earliest complete survival of a dated printed book is the Diamond Sutra (Buddhist text). This of course ties into one of the most famous Chinese inventions, paper!

"It was the Chinese who really discovered the means of communication that was to dominate until our age."


A. Hyatt Mayor

Wood block printing was used in the production of books such as

Photography Weekly: Edition Thirty Three
Photography Weekly Header created by TouchedD
"Why are YOU reading this?"
-This- little bit of space right up here at the top of the weekly Photography Article is usually filled with a newsworthy topic, or a question. And it nearly always gets ignored!! So many of you look at this article, favourite it and comment on it - but what are you looking at it for? Are you gazing at the images? The news? The links? You're certainly not looking at the paragraph right up here that can sometimes be the juiciest bit of the whole article!! As a reader, you're important. Without your input and without positive stats, this article would dwindle - so it's here for you. Tell me what you want to see...

People and Portraits Exposed #4
People, Portraits & The Olympics
The Olympics 2012 officially opens today in London and with it the knowledge that hundreds of thousands of moments are going to be captured across the next two weeks. Sports Photography can belong in several categories across deviantART and it's often difficult to know precisely which one. And guess what - I've got no real answers for you! My only tip is that you need to keep in mind that sports documentation is more likely to be Photo-Journalism than anything else. Unless your sports shots are posed to be creative, emotive and so on - they don't technically belong in the people and portraits galleries. Utilize Photo-journalism as much as you can over the coming weeks, whether you're at the Olympics or you're shooting some summer sports!

Suggestivism
Birth of a New Category or Beginning of the End of Categories?
:icontechgnotic: by techgnotic
Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined
more by what it is not, rather than what it is.

An Absurd Interview with Ayame-Kenoshi
Welcome to Absurd Interviews: Because why the hell not?

One day while prancing happily over the garden that happens to be the backyard of my imagination, I found a little green worm.
- What's your name? - I asked.
- Hi! My name is Bob. - He said
Then I woke up :c
It was super sad because I wanted to know more about this little worm.
Anyway where were we? Oh yes! the interview. This time, ladies and gentlemen, I give you:
Ayame-Kenoshi
Hi Toby! How are you today?
So great! :la:
So I read the tale of your Foxy Boxy, how is the little box doing these days?
He's actually become quite the handsome young box! They grow up so fast. :happycry:
Things were pretty rough for ol' Boxy and I for awhile. He used to be sat on, shoved around, and mistaken for trash. I'm happy to say that he is finally being recognized as an important part of the deviantART

Traditional Tuesdays #80

Tue Apr 28, 2015, 6:40 PM


I'd like to welcome you to the eightieth edition of this article. THE STAR WARS EDITION! The first Traditional Tuesdays feature came out on Nov. 15 2011. The night I started this feature, I was bored and just browsing around the Traditional Gallery. I was finding all kinds great artwork, that for one reason or another I couldn't/wouldn't give a DD. It could be because they had a DD recently, but mainly it was for a link to go back and see what they created next, and if they took it to the next level. Now that I'm no longer a Community Volunteer, it can just be things that I like while browsing the Traditional Galleries. So.... here are eighteen works of art that I thought you should see. I can't trust all of you all with anymore awesomeness, you might hurt yourself! I hope you enjoy and find new things to love! Anyway, on with the show!

**WARNING: Viewing these works of art may cause giddiness, elevated heart rates, and happiness in the pants(which could lead to blindness)! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!**
