candy- Rockabillys

Rockabilly Subculture

Rockabilly is not a style it's a way of life. Rockabilly started out as an underground subcultured music before the birth of Rock 'n' Roll in the 1950's. It was then revived in the 1980's with bands such as The Stray Cats and The Polecats.

Rockabilly is classed as a modern day 1950's style. But it's roots go much deeper. You can notice a Rockabilly Guy by there Slicked Quiffs, Turn-Ups and Engineering Boots or Converse. Girls usually wear the same but with a Quiff, Bettie Paige fringe or Curled hair.

There are several weekenders dedicated to this lifestyle that Thousands of people from around the world attened. Being interested in the 1950's and Rockabilly is not just about dressing like they did, but also about changing your lifestyle. Listening to only 19-40's to early 1960's music.
It's one heck of a way to live though!

A music and fashion subculture started in the mid-late seventies in the UK. Seventies teenagers developed their own dress code based on 1950s American Juvenile Delinquent novels and Hot Rod B-movies. Puttin distance between themselves and the older "Teddy Boys" who attended the same clubs and dances at the time. Their taste in music was for the more primitive hillbilly-rock hybrid "rockabilly" that kicked off in the mid fifties at the same time as its more succesful and commercial sibling - "rock and roll". The rockabilly scene still exists today.

candy - graffiti

BANKSY - Graffiti

Vandalism or Art?

I believe the answer to that question depends on the subject and its form of appearance.

Most graffiti I believe is Art, some of its blunt an confrontational, some is just offensive, and as for the rest of it I think is just great art as it suppose to be and that's expressive.

Robert Banks better known as Banksy, is a well-known English graffiti artist from Yates near Bristol. His artworks are often satirical pieces of art which encompass topics from politics, culture, and ethics. His street art, which combines graffiti with a distinctive stencilling technique, has appeared in London and in cities around the world.

Banksy's stencils feature striking and humorous images occasionally combined with slogans. The message is usually anti-war, anti-capitalist, anti-establishment or pro-freedom. Subjects include animals such as monkeys and rats, policemen, soldiers, children and the elderly. He also makes stickers (the Neighbourhood Watch subvert) and sculpture (the murdered phone box), and was responsible for the cover art of Blur's 2003 album Think Tank.

Rachael - Cradle to Cradle/Cradle to Grave.

Cradle to Cradle
Cradle to cradle is turning waste into food so that we as human beings aren't just taking from the environment but giving back. This understanding of making our waste food for the environment is expressed through a novel called "cradle to cradle" which was co-written by William McDonough and the chemist Michael Braungart. The cradle to cradle thesis suggests that industry must preserve and revitalise the ecosystem whist still producing produces and outputs of goods that are satisfactory for their consumers. Creating an organic cycle, this healthy cycle of giving back to nature isn't just restricted to the industrial manufacturing it can also impact within an urban environment, buildings, economics and social systems.  

Cradle to Grave
Whilst cradle to grave is the complete opposite way to cradle to cradle promoting the idea of waste without meaning, having a product or goods that are produced for one meaning and once they are done they are either deposed off to a rubbish dump or they are recycled into something else but they are unable to be decomposed into the environment for sometimes hundreds of years.

J4D3 - long term plan

After finishing school at a year 10 level i didn't know what i wanted to do. I only knew i would like to be in a career that i enjoyed, and allowed some creativity.
I found this course at kingy Tafe and it is pretty good, interesting. So far i am enjoying doing deign. At this point i would like to continue my studies next year possible in fine arts or graphic design, I'm not sure yet. I don't know if i intend to continue studying in this area or if i will move somewhere else to study.
At this point I don't really have a long term plan, my long term plan is just a bunch of options which 'I think' is kinda cool.
After all, i did come into this course thinking i might leave knowing what path i would want to pursue.
As Chantel has said in her great post, that a chat to the career councilor may be worth my while.

Fine artwork.

Graphic design.
