This has been my first time using adobe illustrator and there is definitely a learning curve. I did not use youtube. I never really got the chance to read the book I purchased for this, but another time I suppose. The quote is the same. It states that nothing real can be threatened, nothing unreal exists, herein lies the peace of love. The original quote ends with god, but for reasons of uncertainty on an academic platform, I refrained from using the word. However when I came across the quote, I was told that in this context the word is interchangeable with love. The design is an arrow from all the different planes of existence and actuality with a blueprint background. I decided designing a blueprint would have to be on my agenda since the only reason I even heard this quote was from my favorite musician, Jay-Z. His album “the blueprint” had a profound affect on me as a child. The heart was where I really found myself in the learning curve, Designing it looks like it shouldn’t have taken more than 20 minutes. It took me an hour and half. I really wanted to add a personal touch to it so I literally gave it an edge. If you’re curious to what the quote means:
It means that your reality cannot be threatened because you are in control. Always. It goes further to say that the thins we fear are not based on reasonable truth or at least acceptable. We simply do not allow ourselves the serenity of accepting the moment. Herein lies the peace of love states that knowledge of both gives us an understanding of present-mindedness, self-acceptance, and love.
Hi guys and girls, my name is Carl Fetus. Yup, like the unborn infant. I’ve heard every possible joke, people prove to be very clever when a new and inspiring vehicle of humor drives to them. Don’t be fooled! My last name is not indicative of my maturity. I love to push the envelope in my social circles and generally other parts of my life. Since I was young I would catch myself coping with subjects I hated by reading a book a under the table. I felt if I was going to be weak at math, I might as well strengthen something else. In very few ways I am still like that. I am big on sociology, music (Hip-Hop, EDM, Electronica,… even the out there kind of stuff like Tuvan throat singing. I am not joking). I’ve got a pretty persuasive link on the bottom for you to check out as a fellow culture fanatic, designer/animator or maybe just a curious stoner. Whichever, I take my “thank you’s” with a big ‘VERY MUCH!”. You will appreciate it.
I digress. I am currently studying a lot about transpersonal experiences though psychedelic assisted psychotherpay as a mechanism for undoing trauma. The entire field of study is it’s own phenomena and I want to bring design to this phenomena and make it otherwordly. When I entered this department I just dove head first without truly understanding the vast opportunities to explore myself and my interest. As soon I found these studies and how design could uncover incredible implications.
