20170422: What to do to Increase Creative Abilities…

Print

The other day I was asked a question, “What can I do to increase my Creative abilities?”

A little while later, someone else asked a similar question, “My creativity is at ZERO. What can I do about it?”

This list is the answer.

In 59 years of life I have never run out of Creative Juice, sure I can be stumped as to what to do. Or the pen sitting not moving in my hands. The keyboard motionless & quiet under my hands….

But I always follow these rules and have found and answer!

Cameras, canvases, paper, inventions, problems in business, every time words, paintings, drawing, photographs & even silly posters are all born from these simple rules!

Enjoy and have fun doing that Creative whatever You Like to Do!

20170417: ANTIWAR Poster, 45 years of antiwar… still no logic in war!

Print

Knowledge poem 3 pages

1976, wrote the poem, it was about the idea of the PUBLIC MASSES wanting “BREAD & CIRCUSES” to be entertained. They did not want to think about the world as a whole…

Top of page, yeah, I have been put in prison for talking of TRUTH,  I carry a broken shoulder for speaking out against USA corruption.

The Middle East, a constant war for 35 years…. Olie North & Pres. Reagan & Bush Sr. creating the Al Qaeda, just to keep USA Public wanting war…. 1999, I read of the Haliburton/Bush/1% Elite Rich creating the “Never Ending War with a Terrorist attack of  a huge size so the USA citizens would RUN TO WAR”  2 years before the 2001 9/11 attack…

The final comments unfortunately are not so well understood, FUKUSHIMA is killing all life…. there is only about 10 years left. 1975, I did a report on the nuclear industry, I came to the understanding that a major environmental disaster WOULD HAPPEN, too much corruption, too much USA government getting monies for underhanded deals & looking the other way at the nuclear pollution….

Yet the planet in a 100 MILLION YEARS or more, will be ready for new forms to come into existence… I personal hope that the humans will not return in as stupid a arrogant manner. If at all.

AND KEEP IN MIND, 1983 I tried to get the human race to see a different view, BY CREATING the International Space Station….

20170408 WHY a “Whistle Blower” stands against corruption…

In 1968, I lived in a stuck up Middle Class WHITE America neighborhood.

Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered and the snotty people for few days acted respect of colored people.

I was born on Jan. 15… and was just 10 years old. But sharing the birth Day of a man who suddenly people who spoke bad & disrespectful of others suddenly spoke decently of.

Acted as if those couple of days of sadness made up for all the disrespect made me stop and investigate.

You see, I was white too. But that town had told me I could not have a girlfriend because I was not born in that town… yeah, total arrogance.

20170407 Corruption a way of life

Well, the teachers did not like me, the family I had to live with was very abusive, physically & emotionally, the children of the town were also abusive.

So I did not join groups much, I was on the outside and ran businesses. The apartments of the family I lived with &

THE BUSINESS OF SURVIVAL.

By 1975, I was an outsider, a lone wolf, a odd ball…

No problem,

I also understood what you will learn in this video if you watch just the 1st 10 minutes!

I am still a Lone Wolf & a “Whistle Blower”…

I don’t support the divide & CONQUER theory either….

Human Rights is all people, not this group or that group

Environment is ALL LIFE on the planet, not just this animal or that animal…

The final comment at the end of this video still gives me chills to think about, it is a shortest summation of what & WHY I am a Whistle Blower, a person who fights corruption, be it government, corporation or CHURCH.

One major point of difference, this film MAKES RELIGION BLAMELESS, REALITY CHECK, priests, POPE, Leaders of all RELIGIONS claim special STATUS, collect monies FOR PRAYING, a productLESS occupation…. very prejudice, very often racist, the CORE OF THE ISSUES! AND RELIGIONS FLAUNT THEIR WEALTH! the Pope Francis hides sexually abusive priests from legal prosecution….

Think about folks religions demand you pay or they hurt you….

20170407: Still got my thumb out… World gets crazier …

Get me out of here, those humans insanity2016_ZFB

Yeah, TRUMPed wants WAR, to prove his tiny brass balls are still hanging.

AND I WANT OFF THIS CRAZY HUMAN INFESTED PLANET!

20170404: Playing like a youngster… Grunge effect.

Print

OK, so people photography is boring to me & all that.

However, I was asked to do some work for a young man & given the image he sent me and the request of turning it into line art.

I sent him back these 2 images… to consider for his posters for sales in his shop.

Print

I did not listen to this man’s music, the image was kind of there in & of it’s self. A musician , a photo that I guess a lot of young people know….

So the Grunge effects, the twisting turning it into some art of his flavor…

Waiting to see what the client thinks.

An old dog that knows a few tricks, an artist that never stops learning, that is me, not in any box because I just ever fit in one.

Creative Shooting/Artistic fun  Folks

Speaking of framed,

usa-called-to-action-panchofb

a selection of fonts & the play of creative abilities,  using just ONE word with 2 photos of some roommates caught in sticky mouse traps one week.

And just a few of the “brushes I can play with in Illustrator or Photoshop.

and of course I do old school style… The “Retro theme” is coming around for the 3rd time in my life.

All pricing is by piece or Per hour depending on your needs. I will discuss any honest contracts & have a PayPal account to make payments to. Average of $50USD per hour.

I have several ways of getting your design work to you through the internet.

I am a human being and have Adobe CC Suite 2017 plus other contracts for font houses & graphic houses for artwork needed or can create quite a bit myself.

However all of this requires monies to pay bills & still have a place to sleep and food to eat.

PLEASE CONTACT ME, if you have any abilities to help me pay bills or graphic design/business needs I might answer.

email me at vanderhoofpeter@yahoo.com with details of any job you might have.

yes, the client likes the work and will be working with me to do this project.

 

I used Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere Pro, & Lightroom to create this creative vision.

20170321: Perfect example of “NO imagination & demanding no one does.”

OK, so yesterday I put a comment on a LinkedIn post which the person had made comment of the North & South American continents looking like a “Duck” when laid on it’s side….

I replied that if you look at Google Earth and the South American continent you will a “FACE” looking at the Galapagos Islands…

I got this reply back…

20170321 John Miller reply_an idiot

So here is the image from the Earthquake 3D imaging which makes it “Point Blank” to me.

Peru faces Galopagos 01

What do you think folks?

Do I  have too hours of staring at computer screens or is the stuff I drew lines to seem pretty obvious to the average person looking at it.

Sure Google earth is harder to see, but when You consider that as a 50 year landscape photographer with 42 years as professional….

As a person that has had many “Tour Guides” confirm that yes that formation of rocks is the next thing they are going to talk about as it is some 100s to 1000s of years old local “Spirit FACE”…. what do you think ?

Should I shut up about my impressions of a image & my abilities to use my imagination?

I mean after all I did create the International Space Station.
