The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 470 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 8 trips to carry that many people.

This week is my final week and I have many exams.
However, my friends just came to NYC to visit me and I decided to go out with them.
Actually, I took a great break and I felt relaxed and comfortable.
I went to Takashi Murakami’s exhibition finally!!!!! As my professor recommended, I went there.
Takashi Murakami’s artworks were amazing, I got a chicken skin when I saw them. Actually, my friends were not interested in Art; however, these artworks impressed them a lot!!
Before, I went there, I watched his video on YouTube. He told about these artworks. It was really interesting to know.
He got inspired by Tunami in Japan and he decided to create the artworks,
I can see a strong focal point, a large black circle there.
His artworks speak to me!!!! I really appreciate them.
His artworks made me proud of my culture, Japanese culture and Japanese art.
Happy Holidays Everyone!!!
I am ending this beautiful class with the last project, collage and emotional graphic.
It is hard to believe that Christmas Eve is around the corner. I am planning to visit the Boston Museum during winter vacation. I am excited to go there.
I learned many things such as hyper-realism, cubism and collage in this class.
This class definitely enhanced my art skill, inspiration and more.
I began loving Photoshop application and I wish I could stay in this class longer.
There are still many things to learn about art in this class!!!!!!!!
I really appreciate this class and my professor. She gave me much advice to enhance my art skill and technique.
Happy Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Everyone!!
Last class, I finished working on my collage project. I had so much fun of it and I also became like collage.
It is hard to believe that I have 2 more weeks in this semester. Time flies so fast.
In another class, I also did a collage by using my hands. It was also fun things for me too.
I realized that making collage is taking a lot of time. When I see many famous collage masterpieces, I really appreciate and respect the artist’s passion and techniques in the artworks.
This artwork made by Takashi Murakami. He is a famous Japanese artist. Actually, I was not interested in him before because his artworks were too cute and It did not speak to me.
After I spoke with my professor, I researched about him on the website again.
Fortunately, I have a his book in my apt and I will read it this winter.
I really appreciate this artwork. I can see many beautiful details which the artist put a lot of times for it.
I thought I wanted to create a collage of masterpiece from art history, such as like a ” last supper” painted by davinchi?
It will be cool.
Christmas is around the corner!!!!!!!
I have been working on collage for 2 weeks.
I realized that making collage is hard. Composing many images into one canvas is pretty much the hardest thing for me.
I am trying to make a good focal point, visual flow and unity there.
I am using some old music notes images and for this reason I searched many vintage collages on the website for getting new inspiration.
I like vintage since I was a kid.
These vintage collages give me many inspirations. I really like these collages give me a nostalgic feeling. Also, these collages remind me many classic movies from the 60s-70s.
We took a trip to the MOMA in class few weeks ago.
Fortunately, I could see a Henri Matisse’ exhibition then. I know his paintings, but I was not interested in his collage at the time.
I saw many his paper collages. I can see the beautiful color harmony in his artworks. It is very beautiful. And also the objects are interesting.
I can see many positive shapes in his artworks and it makes a good balance.
I can see some diagonal lines in this artwork. I think it helps to create a movement in the artwork.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!
I have been thinking about collage since last class. When I saw many collages, I got some ideas for my artwork.
I really want to use vivid colors to make my artwork colorful and beautiful.
My concept is Jazz music so I want to use old music notes in the background.
I think I can put some famous jazz musician’s names such as Miles Davis and Billy Holiday in my artwork too.
