Crawford Attic Writing Room

Crawford Attic Writing Room by PARA Project:

If you’re looking into how to renovate your attic, PARA Project has a really neat attic design below.

Love the built-in bookcase, the huge windows to allow the light in, and the spaciousness of it all.

Inspiration [17]

ROSA INCA Collection by gemagenta:

SONY DSC catamarca ring by gemagenta SONY DSC

Really cool how rhodhocrosites, the national Argentinian stone, inspires this artist to create these jewelry pieces.  Apparently, there is a legend behind these pieces; for more, please click on the artist’s name.

It  inspires me to take the time to look around my surroundings more, and to get inspiration from things which I might come across whenever my path may lead.  The source of inspiration can really be endless.

HAFFENDEN HOUSE

Haffenden House by Para Project:

I like their clean and simple design, especially the front of the building, and the huge bookcase area.  I wonder if this is just a personal library…

Studio Ghibli Layout Designs Exhibit

The exhibition ‘Studio Ghibli Layout Designs: Understanding the Secrets of Takahara and Miyazaki Animation’ just opened last month at the Heritage Museum of Hong Kong and will go on till the end of August, 2014.

A fantastic exhibition for any animation student/artist/fanatic, especially if you are a huge Studio Ghibli/Takahara/ Miyazaki fan.  Unfortunately, photography was not allowed inside.

This exhibition showcases the animation film layouts from all their films to date!

The film layouts are prepared in the production process of the animation film. The layouts are like the storyboards or blueprints of the film; they are the screen composition that make up the design and arrangement of the entire film.

They usually contain the cut number, screen, movement, dialogue, sound effects, and the actual seconds written on them which specifies when and how the layouts are to be played in the film.

What amazed me the most about the layouts were how detailed and intricate they were. I could feel the years of dedication that their team spent on the layouts, since each layout had to be planned perfectly in order for the story to flow.

They also replicated the hallway of mirrors in the film, Spirited Away, inside the exhibition room, which was a pretty cool experience.

miyazaki exhibit 4Time spent: Approximately 3 hours

Gift shop: The museum’s gift shop carries some of Studio Ghibli’s items right now, but be prepared that they will cost a small fortune!  The most affordable item might just be the kitchen cloth! Yes! You heard it right, a kitchen cloth from Kiki’s Delivery!

Tips: Wednesdays are half priced.  Also, go early to queue in the ground floor area if you’d like to take pictures with the characters from their films.

The exhibit will make you want to watch and re-watch all their animation films!  Make sure to check it out if you’re gonna be in Hong Kong this summer or plan a trip!
