Understanding Abstract Arts

Most abstract arts we can see around are just random – in some cases pure ‘sales-bait’; which means some artists can figure out a specific style that they can sell easily. In these cases most likely the artists themselves are unable to explain their works or they’ll simply lie.

Fearing the Unknown but I’m Curious

We spend most of our time figuring out – what’s coming next. In most cases we predict the wrong or often we forget what we’ve predicted. The people whom we recognise as successful are mostly doers, who hardly get any time to think about the future.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about Elon Musk or Bill Gates. They are successful and they talk about future a lot. But they are too heavy to take them as role models. I’m talking about people around me who invented some hacks to have a relatively better life. Most of them are just brave people.

It’s really not so important to be a master on how accurately someone can predict the future. We live in present and we hardly have any control over it. Fearing the future is good as it indicates about taking some risks or getting out of the comfort zone. Bravery is being the only one who knows you’re afraid.

To a brave man, good and bad luck are like his left and right hand. He uses both.

St. Catherine of Siena

Sometimes we make mistakes in distinguishing the differences between bravery and stupidity. It’s okay, some stupidities actually made this world a better place.

They are More Intelligent!

It always grab my interest when it’s something about typography. An alphabet isn’t just a character, often it represents some inner meanings – the passion, the anger.

I love to see when it’s very spontaneous, beyond the rules. My nephew was creating something for his class party. He is just 8 and I was really surprised to see when he asked me to see his creation.

I can’t remember any brilliancy like that from my childhood, but I am feeling really good to see someone growing more intelligent.

A Dream, a Nightmare

For last two and half years I’ve spent many hours looking through this window and saw the changes. Some changes were so massive that it was hard to remember what were in the past. After four and half years of my involvement with ebizzsol, I’ve decided to leave!

It was obvious and long pending. I wanted to believe some other things but everyone knew the reality before I came to know!

I always loved to remember the first day I came to this place. I can remember the dream I had in my mind and now the nightmares!

Olds are Gold

I was looking for some illustrations, posters; some old things. Then I got the FIFA World Cup’s posters of all the previous years from their website. They are just wonderful.

I always found myself so backdated comparing with the people rest of the world and time. I think even if I were asked to design such a poster, I am sure I’ll not be able to reach the standard of the oldest one.

People in 1930 were smarter than me! You can find all the posters through this link.
