What am I doing wrong?
"As I rapidly made the mesmeric passes, amid ejaculations of "dead! dead!" absolutely bursting from the tongue and not from the lips of the sufferer, his whole frame at once—within the space of a single minute, or even less, shrunk—crumbled—absolutely rotted away beneath my hands. Upon the bed, before that whole company, there lay a nearly liquid mass of loathsome—of detestable putridity."
Below is another illustration by Harry Clarke, whose work was featured recently in The Supplement. The horror of Valdemar's super-accelerated decay is conveyed here in startling fine-line filigree...
Congratulations to all those involved.
At the moment, I've put up the JPEG along with a link to the scribd page to let people actually read it, but this is not a good situation
I believe it has been asked of you to have a lovingly presented hand-in disc for your final crit. Printing discs at the University is very simple and can be printed at the IT Offices down the hallway.
Printing from the office costs £2 I believe. The office does have a small stock of blank CD’s but I’d wager a bet that if 30 CG Arts students rushed into the office Friday morning asking to print CD’s then they would run out very quickly. If you don’t have the means to print your own CD’s then get in their ASAP!
My suggestion would be for you to pool some funds with some of your colleagues and head down to Staples and buy yourselves a big bulk of plain white printable discs, which will last you for the rest of your time on the course.
Also, bare in mind that the IT guys aren't always around, so give yourself enough time to get your CD produced. You can always print your disc on say Tuesday and burn the files on Friday.
Printing quality tends to be decent. I’d suggest something clear and bold. For example the two I submitted for my Minor Project:
The blue one came out much nicer.
You can find CD templates from a billion sources on the web. Here’s one such website:
A step by step guide:
- Using a template and Photoshop, create your CD image. Make sure your dpi is somewhere between 150 and 300.
- Save the image as a JPEG.
- Put that image on a memory stick and head to down to the IT office.
- Either with a CD bought from the office or with a CD of your own, get that bad boy printed.
- Go pay your debt to society round at the counter in the Modelmaking and Theatre department.

In terms of content for your crit on Friday, 4th March, please present the following:
- Your 'Art Of' publication (as Powerpoint, pdf slideshow or Scribd).
- Your Animatic.
- Your CG Pre-viz.
L1 will be open at 9am - students are to copy their work onto the computer in readiness for the crit to begin PROMPTLY at 10am.
The order of presentations will run z through a, which means we're starting with Alex!
Remember - Unauthorised non-attendance at a final crit = non-submission. If you're running late, please let Ann Price know (APrice4@ucreative.ac.uk) - as Jackie Andrew is on holiday.
I need your help, I changed my blog name and address and I need to know if my updates are coming through and you can select my new blog address in the side thing on your dashboard.
I know that my old one (yesmynameisearl.blogspot.com) is still there but saying its removed. Dan also says that my new updates are not coming through...
If you just leave a comment saying whether I'm still visable or why I'm not is greatly appreciated...
Will I have to change back to my old address?
I've temporarily changed the web address back to see if that's what is causing the issue. I don't mind keeping the old address, as long as the title is different...
It seems to be because I changed the web address. I've changed it back, so could you see if my posts are coming through again, and what my title is on the following dashboard thing, that'll be great :)
"A powdered feed essential, suitable for all horses to help maintain a Calm outlook. ThinkCalm provides a rich source of bio-available magnesium and natural acid buffers to support a healthy digestive system. Also includes a blend of herbs and a unique plant extract to support the production of calming hormones"
- Feeding Instructions:
- Horses: 2 Scoops (90g) Daily
- Ponies: 1.5 Scoops (67g) Daily
I don't know how many scoops of ThinkCalm a CGAA first year might need in crit week to stave off any last minute panics or creative 'brain freeze', but what I can prescribe more confidently is the following advice:
- Look back at the brief - (do it right now!)
- Create an '@Phil' post if you're unsure what is being asked.
- Back-up your work.
- Proof read your written assignment: check that the content of your main body corresponds with your intentions as stated in your introduction. Have you used the Harvard method correctly? Are your quotations italicised? Is your bibliography and illustration list all present and correct?
- Be ready to print your Unit 4 essay on Thursday after the Symposia (Don't do it on Friday!).
- Get your branded submission disc designed tonight - and printed on Monday/Tuesday (There will be a queue).
- BACK-UP YOUR WORK!
- Keep calm and carry on.
- Be amazing.
