This actually reads "The Ear of God." It is pretty simple, but I really enjoyed it, I suppose it's

because I'm obsessed with golden geometry...

edit to say it's not mine. I found it walking around my school.

You guys should try liquidcrack.net, its a supplier out of Dayton ohio

 

they usually have a good stock on caps tips and markers. Im from

 

Ohio and thats where 9 out of 10 writers around here order from.

 

Some TM7 kids run that site so they tend to know what they need in

 

stock. If your in the Dayton area stop thru they have they own

 

warehouse full of paint. walking thru it you will feel like a kid in a

 

candy store. If you go in person they usually trow in a bunch of caps

 

on the house.

well i did the whole thing with a big brush and what happened was i was trying to do a clean 3 layer stencil and it worked fine until i got to the third layer and the paint i used was too dark . it sucked and i wanted to clean it off so i waited for it to dry and got a sponge and whiped the whole third layer down. it kinda left the third layer there in a the tone that i wanted and kinda made it looked weathered so i just left it like that . just one of those beautiful mistakes ya know ?

like 83 said, its a golden spiral. I said what the lettering was in the top of the post. Also,

again, that was just somethin I found around school. Not mine.

isnt the golden spiral the theory that evrything in existance is made up microscopic spirals. and our whole universe consists of them? or am i talking about a different theory.. if you're more interested in this see the movie PI (the mathmatical symbol)

Wellllll not exactly. Not to hijack the thread but I'll take a minute to explain golden geometry.

 

In geometry there is a certain ratio that can be attained in a comparison of certain lengths

of the side of a pentagram. This ratio is expressed as (a+b)/a = a/b. this is what we call Phi. There

are actually two numbers that are expressed as Phi, big Phi and little phi. This is what we call the

Golden Mean. An irrational number that can not be expressed in any other fractional form other

than that of the one previously expressed. Naturally this creates a series of numbers: 1, 2, 3, 5,

8, 13, 21 and so on. This is called the fibonacci series. This series has rather large implecations in the

natural world. More specifically it is seen in the growth patterns of petals on flowers and in seedling

structures of things such as pine cones.

 

As this concept applies to art and architecture, there are many instances where the golden mean

is claimed to be used. The acropolis maintains most of its structural design based in this ratio. If one

were to examine the major sections and distances between specific structures on the building itself,

one would find that most of the relationships one can discern are based soley on this "Golden

Ratio." It is also thought to be the most pleasing aesthetic measurement one can use in

creating their art. If one sections off an ovoid using the golden ratio, one comes up with much closer

proportions of a face than with the widely used halving system. Dali was one artist that was concerned with

the intentional application of the ratio in his art. His depiction of the last supper is rampant with proportions

based on the golden ratio.

 

The golden spiral is the manifestation of the fibonacci series into a graphic form. If one creates a

series of boxes based on this series of numbers, you can build a system through which a "perfect"

spiral is created. If in each respective box a quarter circumfrential mark is made, it creates this spiral.

However, this is not merely a humanly driven concept. The shell of the nautilus reflects this spiral itself. It

also has applications as part of the Imaginary coordinate system, if it is transcribed onto a sphere. Either

way, it's fuckin awesome.

 

 

edit to say that while Pi is a great movie, it is infact quite deviated from the concepts the movie

is based on.

 

 

Enough on this... Back to the stencils, just hope that cured your curiousity...

adhesive works great on the paper and krylon but sucks monkey nuts for wlamart paint, it rips it right off. Thats why there are wierd patches in the kids hair. I also think the colors on the kid suck but i have no other colors :(. comment please. And this was my first splatter and fade job.

not bad but i dunno about those splatters. u should practice fades a bit too.

 

remember that canvasses arent just about fades and splatters whhen they are done right they can look good but splaaters have really become overused and it doesnt take a whole lot of talent to throw paint at a surface. try to do stuff that will make people stop and look at it, not just go: "oh more splatter shit". know what i mean?

I think what people forget is that splatters and such are not a technique but an accent. They should be taken into account with the entire piece. Not as a background, but as a part of the piece and therefor their placement should be just as appropriate as the stencil itself. A perfect example is some of the splattering that RD uses on his vinyls. It is more of an extension of the stencil itself rather than being seperate from the stencil. Same thing for fades I feel. Its all about composition and adequately putting together a solid piece as a whole.
