I don’t know if anybody caught the Oscar winning Paperman, I thought it was an amazing piece of animation. Check it out on YouTube but the design and nature of colour within the short film was really great.

Den HaagSo as some of you may know I have been away from this blog recently as I have just completed Leeds RAG Jailbreak in aid of the MS Society. I personally have managed to raise over £800 for the MS Society and Jailbreak as a whole has raised over £17,000 for worthwhile causes. I managed to reach The Hague within 36 hours without spending a  penny and I’d like to thank those that supported me. You can still donate at http://www.justgiving.com/Calum-Jacobs.

By reaching the Netherlands I was able to take some great pictures in both The Hague and Amsterdam, like the one shown.  There plenty of great opportunities to take great photographs will have to go back to further explore all the nooks and crannies. If you would like to see more of the photos I took in the last week leave a comment and let me know!!

Church and Charity

Other, Photography

ChurchThis is a nice picture of a church tower with rich colours and nice colour contrast. I am participating in Leeds RAG Jailbreak tomorrow so I won’t be able to post for the next couple of days. It’s a competition for charity to see who can travel the furthest away from Leeds in 36 hours, I am fundraising for the MS Society in aid of my mum who has multiple sclerosis. Any donation, large or small, that you can spare will be greatly appreciated and go to a great cause. You can donate at http://www.justgiving.com/Calum-Jacobs, thank you.

Tabula Peutingeriana

Art, Design, Other

Tabula PeutingerianaAside from being what is probably the widest image I’ve ever seen (click on the image if you don’t believe me, don’t forget to zoom into it’s full size!) the Tabula Peutingeriana is an amazing piece of ancient cartography. Once you get your head around where everything is it’s an extraordinary item. I do feel it has an element of art and design, which is especially noticeable around Rome in particular. Good old Romans …

 

Progress

So it’s been 3 weeks since I started this blog and it would be good to know how I’m doing. What am I doing right? What am I doing wrong? Is there something you would like me to post about? Let me know!

Portfolio

So my first post has got to be about something, so I thought why not put a link to my portfolio up until I figure out what my first topic of conversation will be on? I’ll be putting up posts on photography, design and colour in the near future so keep an eye out!
