It gets into me when I realize that education has given me so much, and yet waiting for the big call, for the dreamy job aspiration you have always wanted comes with a lot more than doing amazingly great at uni. It seems like a hunger game venture, where employers seek to look at individuals that are tough and well patient to endure the torture of finding the ultimate initial job. There are to counter sides to it which I really hate and more than ever I like.
The hate part is that it does take time, and being an individual like me, I really want to make the best out of anything. For this time, the waiting is so dreadful that makes me think so many things to which I ultimately deliberate all sorts of insignificant details that surround my house. Time like this as well, re energizes my insane passion to create something. Although physically I have not yet deliberated and delivered anything, within me I can feel that my barometer of development is being filled slowly and constantly.
Taking this as a chance to understand my various pathways that I will be developing through out my next part of my life, I’m trying to be acceptful of this given time and resolves myself in doing things that evoke a mental tranquility and peacefulness.
Picking olives, is one of those things that allowed me to understand the various counter arguments that I mentally struggle when I don’t see yet results of the hard work that I have done through out the ages. Taking the Olive tree, I understood that not every year I harvest it. Yet there are years, like this year where the bloom and development of it roots, sprout so many olives, that gives you wonder and awe when trying to get every inch and ounce of it inside the bucket. Similar to life and its journey, there will be times were everything will be dry and fragile, yet the constant nourishment and persistence will bear a lot of good deeds for the time to come.
Keeping this in mind there is hope, and it will be worth it.
Today I decided to start relearning French again. Although it sounds funny but for some reason I was illuminated to get myself refreshed and energized with some french lessons. Unknowingly I have already progressed to 7 lessons and it feels like I didn’t loose my french connection. It only needed some refreshing.
On the other hand my energy level was a little bit low. Refreshing inbox pages is not what I had in mind after working really hard and studying so much through out my entire existence. Although this might sound too dramatic. It’s something that I’m adjusting myself and trying to get the best out of it. At least I’m having some quality time enjoying the moment, the way it is.
The website is still in progress and am currently jamming and fixing some UI design problems that I had before.
Until then, bonsoir!
Today I shall start blogging again. After a long time out of this, i decided to give myself another chance and go towards improving myself and my creative vibe. Although I have successfully graduated , I’m currently under the mid life crisis where I still need to figure out where I’m standing. To this I think that spending my time wisely and creatively is best way to keep going and embracing this change.
As part of this ongoing challenge I wanted to start doing something different everyday, and with this I mean even the most vernacular stuff that I take for granted. Starting today I want to challenge and force myself to create and express my creative vibe in different ways, and try my best in whatever I do. It will be hard but I’m up to a good challenge.
Although I’m unemployed, I think I have to reconnect with myself and really appreciate this time the way it is. Let the worries stay away from me, cause I want to stay + everyday of my life.
I did start rebranding ‘Michelinmission’ and I will soon share some of the exciting stuff I’ve been brewing in my head. Although the website looks like a skeleton, I’ve kicked started the process and its looking great.
This is a beautiful animation that I have just come across and thought about sharing it with you guys. I apologize for not being active at all on this blog, but I had to invest my time and effort on me and my project, and I still need some more time to get it up to scratch.
Things have been slightly tough recently but there is a great sense of satisfaction when eventually all of this will be done. I realized looking at the above animation is that I have gained so much knowledge and understanding that truly marks, how aware we can all become when we stick to the game and truly seek the knowledge and understanding of our inner self.
I still have a long way to go, but I’m pretty sure that everyday that passes, I’m closer and becoming wiser in understanding myself and my inner purpose in pursuing this career.
That’s all Folks.
Eventually I will document everything, I’ve been up to.
Sometimes you need to step away from what you re presenting and analyse to full extent what you would like to achieve with all of this work. Through the past months I have been working and developing my skills into becoming better and more proficient in what I do.
Rediscovering techniques, reanalyzing methods of practices I started to understand how much I still have to understand within this world that I live in.
From pitching, to project management, to Python and all the chaoticness that logic brings with, diverged into compositing and animation configurations, I have given myself time to learn and digest all the greatness that knowledge and time can offer.
The missions will soon take of to a new level of grandiosity. I belief that great things will come my way.
[STAY +] MICHELINMISSION
This is some of the work I’ve been working on recently. It is a process that I have been working and developing myself into. Although the constant struggles that I face through out each milestone these results make me more confident and drive towards understanding myself my potential and what I want to achieve further on.
The reality that social media push forward, is one that has always sought to identify itself as pure and perfect in all ways. In this light people with some brains would know that this is a manipulative system that people fall for very easily. Taking into account Zilla Van Den Born fake journey to Asia, her ability to convince her family and friends about this fake journey truly encapsulates the social reality that social media forces on us.
Check out her process:
This week I have looked within the inner depths of this augmented reality that we live in. As the previous example I started to explore and delve deeper the notion of reality and virtual perception of social interaction.
Instagram Filters and the dichotomy that is found within the manipulation that it projects.
What drives us? Is it because we would like to have a statement that is mainstream and urban?
To this light I created a series of work that challenges the different filters and non filter effects within a photo. To this result I could acknowledge that in some chases no filter photos provided less drama but for some reason it resonated better than the manipulated image.
White Washing of lies within the photo:
To this I stand to question whether people are engaged within the real or the hyper real form of understanding. Through further investigation I will try to further acknowledge the interaction that these parallels portray.
Sometimes the most astonishing discoveries are reserved within the outdoors that we live in. Away and distant we tend to distinguish our parallels with those that surround us. The need to detach and merge ourselves on a lone journey will dis-value the greater discovery that lies within the connection that everything that surrounds me has on me.
Within the following posts I will be understanding and finding interconnecting parallels that will allow me to understand the environment that surrounds and all of us dissolve in.
Concept Design Analysis 1
In this work I will investigate and analyse in depth the concept art that will go along the narration script. From the script I will opt to extract a visual narrative that will infuse a concept and era upon which my style would be influenced from. The initial investigation that I will work on will be that of extracting 1950’s ideologies that will be redefined into this narration.
The work will present a flow and artistic inspirations that will allow the audience to encapsulate themselves within a narration that seeks to represent a flow of understanding and visual intrigue.
In the following designs and posts I will investigate and lay out the individual influences that will allow me to develop the final concept and design; into Maya and eventually as a final work.
