Todd Shanafelt Lecture
Digital Methods, and 2 D Digital.
This lecture was very different from other lectures that I have heard this year. To tell the truth I hated it. I thought that Todd Shanafelt wasted a lot of time going over who he is and where he came from. I get that an artist should tell a little bit about their background but he spend over 45 minutes on his. Then when He finally got to showing his artwork he would show his artwork next to another artist's artwork, and talk about the other artist rather than himself. I think that his work is Great and I loved going onto his web site before his talk and looking at it and getting ready for what he was going to talk about, and then he left me upset. I also went to his workshop before the lecture and had a blast I thought he was a great guy and loved seeing him work and showing tricks that he has picked up over the years, like adding metal to ceramics, and adding images. I learned a lot at the workshop, and was looking forward to the lecture, and was let down. I know that he is a teacher and I think that is why he talked about the artwork of the other people. I just wish that he had spent about 30 minutes at least on his artwork. The next day I went to his other workshop because it was what my class was doing, and he went over a few other key points, about teaching which was great since I want to be an art teacher. Over all I liked Todd at the workshops but felt that his lecture need work.
