Concepts from the Web

Filed under: Creating Web Interfaces — Mia @ 9:21 pm

I’m interested in visual effects produced by mixing ink and water on paper.  I took calligraphy lessons from Kunii Takezaki a couple of years ago, when I spent a month in Okinawa, and those lessons helped me appreciate the texture that wet and dry brushes can convey.  I also appreciate the ink and water photographs of Shinichi Maruyama.  The Digital Domain Infiniti automobile advertisements, Master Driver and G Line explore the morphing of bleeding ink with video footage.  This is a frame of the G Line television commercial.

I would like to take ink-in-water photographs, as well as, create digital images in Photoshop to create a similar effect.  Integrating that design concept with an inspiring topic is a future challenge.
