I was really taken with the artwork I used in the set by Mike Tracy and so I looked him up and found a really interesting article about him.....check it out here:
http://blogs.ocweekly.com/navelgazing/2012/08/art_institute_of_orange_county_mike_tracy.php

He was eventually fired..here is his response:
" I received the official termination notice via fedex last night. It was there when I got home. Whatever progress I was making toward some sense of normalcy instantly evaporated when I read it. One of the points that Marick makes in his termination is that I have- and I quote_ "...actively sought to use our students to protest on your behalf, disrupting the learning environment for your own pursuit." I can only hope that, as a human being, he doesn't really believe this in his heart of hearts. I also hope that you all can accept my assurance to you that disrupting or causing harm to any of you was the farthest thing from my mind. Far from it, I feel that the policy I was fired for, despite Marick and EDMC proclaiming to the opposite, injures students, at the very least, financially, aside from all of the academic freedom issues.In terms of disrupting the learning environment, the corporation could have easily held their fire for another six weeks and simply, quietly terminated me at the break, thus avoiding a much greater damage and disruption than the one this precipitous action has caused. Now, for you, I think this is finished. I thank everyone for their passion, their support and their encouragement. Go back to your work and resume thinking about your education and your futures. I still sincerely believe that there is a great value in the things you have learned and will learn at the Art Institutes. The dispute that I am involved in is not about that. Please don't allow this situation to confuse your goals or stifle your enthusiasm for our profession. We embarked on the study of entertainment art because we wanted a life for ourselves that has meaning and is fun- and it doesn't matter how or where you do it, all that matters is that you do it!I will continue to work, from my end to get this injurious policy modified. I am also looking forward to the time, hopefully in the not too distant future, where I can resume my life and start getting to the next chapter.Please feel free to call on me any time you think I might be of service to you. With much love and affection,Good luck -- Mike"

The Creative Coalition

The Creative Coalition

As if 10/15, on a temporary Hiatus. Will return. Just need to focus on some things offline at this time.
 
Welcome to the Creative Coalition - an art-based group. This is a group for those of us who find solace in creativity. We are creative, open-minded and support one another. No submission will be rejected unless it is hateful or a blatant copy. So, here's a bit about the group in a nutshell...
1. Preferred Submissions: Art sets, including dolls, abstracts, interiors/exteriors, collage, etc. as opposed to strictly editorial fashion sets but as stated above no submission will be rejected.
 
2. Contests will be held - some judged by moderators and some will be up for group vote.
 
3. Kindness and encouragement for everyone. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
 
If you have any questions please PM me!

Simplicity in Interior Design

Simplicity in Interior Design

This is an interior (and exterior/outdoor) design group. Please only submit these types of sets to the group and to the contests. Mini & Midi, as well as regular sized sets, are welcome. Minimalism is any design or style in which the simplest and fewest elements are used to create the maximum effect. This group is for those interior/exterior sets that exemplify this concept. Please note that the style of your interior/exterior does not necessarily have to be minimalist but, rather, the way it is composed should be. For example, you may wish to create a luxurious room with a renaissance feel - hardly minimal - but you can compose the set in such a way that your design is clean and uncluttered. If you have any questions please don't ever hesitate to message me @colbysma :-) Have fun!
