  • SVG is short for Scalable Vector Graphics, a resolution-independent image file format.
  • This file format is frequently used for line art like logos and diagrams.
  • You can view an SVG file in any web browser, edit it in Adobe Illustrator, or convert it to another file format in Adobe Photoshop.

SVG is an acronym for a Scalable Vector Graphics file, commonly used in graphics programs like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. It is considered a resolution-independent file format because you can resize the image to any size without losing image quality. You can open SVG files in a variety of programs and also convert them to other formats if needed.

What is an SVG file?

SVG file format is short for Scalable Vector Graphics and as the name suggests it is a kind of graphics file. Unlike bitmap graphics (such as JPG and PNG files), SVG graphics are composed of vectors, which are a kind of geometric object. The file uses XML to mathematically describe the image using vector geometry.

All of this means that SVG files are resolution-independent; you can scale an SVG file up or down and it will retain sharpness and clarity. On the other hand, if you try to resize a JPG image, it would quickly become pixelated and blurry because the original image has a set number of pixels.

When used for the right applications, SVG files can also be compact and efficient, resulting in small file sizes. That said, SVG isn’t the right file format for every application. It works best for images such as logos, diagrams, and other line art images. Very complex organic images like photographs are a poor use of the SVG format.

How to open an SVG file

Although SVG graphics are not commonly used outside of graphic design professionals, the files are easily opened and viewed using many common software programs.

The easiest way to view an SVG file is to use a web browser. Because SVG uses XML – a text-based markup language similar to HTML – any modern web browser can display an SVG file. Simply drag your SVG file to a browser like Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Microsoft Edge and the image should appear in a new tab. However, you will not be able to modify the image.

You can open an SVG file in any modern browser by dragging it into the browser window.

You can also open an SVG file in many graphics programs. If you want to be able to edit the image in its native vector format, you will need to use a program like Adobe Illustrator. If you’re using Photoshop, the image will automatically be converted to a bitmap graphic at a specific size – see the next section for details.

How to convert an SVG file

Since SVG is a specialized file format, you may want to convert it to a bitmap file such as JPG or PNG so that you can use it more easily in other applications. One way to do this is to use Adobe Photoshop – when you open an SVG in Photoshop, the image is automatically converted to a bitmap graphic at a size you specify. Here’s what to do:

1. In Photoshop, click Case and choose Open.

2. Find the SVG file and choose Open.

3. In the Rasterize SVG format window, choose the size you want the image to be converted to and click OKAY.

When you open an SVG file in Photoshop, it’s converted to a bitmap, so you can easily save it as a JPG.

When Russia began its invasion of Ukraine, Ukrainian designers Maxim Aksenov and Evgeniya Dyupina spotted an initiative on Instagram asking users to buy tickets to Mykolaiv Zoo. With the zoo closed and the city under fire, “zoo workers needed money for food, medicine and transporting the animals,” says Evgeniya. This snowballed into the creation of 3oo – a simple but effective illustrated site allowing users to buy zoo tickets to support the animals and the workers behind them.

While the two designers initially shared the Mykolaiv Zoo donation link on Instagram, they realized the links were misdirected. They also discovered that this was actually a problem affecting zoos across Ukraine – “some zoos were being bombed daily, some evacuated, with private shelters and citizens helping lost animals”, explains Max. Maxim and Evgeniya began collecting information about other zoos in need, often found through “random tweets or IG stories,” says Evgeniya. What was missing, the designers decided, was a functional “Link in bio” landing page that pulls together all the donation information. They also understood the urgency of the situation, which meant that 3oo had to reassemble quickly; the first version of the site took an incredible two days to launch.

“The design goal was mainly to make it fast,” Maksim tells us. “However, we wanted to show the expression in the illustration and make it poster-like while still being a bit interactive.” Maksim, who created the landing page, started with a palette based on the Ukrainian flag, but expanded to represent the wide range of real animals and workers in need of assistance.

Humberto Cruz on defining artistic success and building a personal brand https://schlammpeitziger.com/humberto-cruz-on-defining-artistic-success-and-building-a-personal-brand/ Wed, 15 Jun 2022 06:30:00 +0000 https://schlammpeitziger.com/humberto-cruz-on-defining-artistic-success-and-building-a-personal-brand/ Even if you don’t immediately recognize Humberto Cruz’s name, chances are you’ll recognize his work via his studio name, I Scream Colour.

Even if you don’t immediately recognize Humberto Cruz’s name, chances are you’ll recognize his work via his studio name, I Scream Colour. Through hard work, dedication and posting consistently amazing work, Humberto has amassed 148,000 followers on Instagram. And it’s easy to see why. Her uplifting and colorful work is a joy to behold, and her unique pop culture-inspired style springs from your stream.

Yet even for artists like Humberto, the road to success can be long and convoluted, especially when you pause to reflect on what success looks like as an artist. All of this and more was covered in a recent interview with Everpress, where Humberto talks about his career so far.

Why Everpress? Well, in 2020 Humberto started selling T-shirts printed with his designs on the site. Thanks to the huge success of his designs, Humberto started designing full-time and said goodbye to the grocery store job he had worked in since college. To celebrate having helped make Everpress the platform it is today. The site decided to sit down with some of its leading artists to hear their stories.

After studying graphic design at the University of San Diego in 2007, Humberto told Everpress that graduating in a recession made it difficult to find full-time work as a creative. Freelancing was certainly welcome, but to make ends meet he continued to work the same grocery store job he had since high school.

Like many artists at this point in his career, Humberto began to doubt himself. However, when social media came along, he realized it was a new opportunity to help him become an artist. “I started posting daily on Instagram and built a following. I’ve been doing this for 10 or 11 years, and it’s fun!”

Inspired by the work of Takashi Murakami, Yayoi Kusama and Andy Warhol, Humberto’s art is an evolution of the doodles he drew as a child. Freed from the worry of making a mistake, his art gained in style and confidence. Having once been preoccupied with celebrities and pop culture in general, he now wants to focus on creating art with a message people can relate to.

One of those messages seems to be unbridled positivity. It manifests itself through a palette of bright and positive colors. However, it’s surprising to hear that he emerged from a place of anxiety, with Humberto unhappy with what he was creating. To combat this, he started making art every day.

“Being creative every day has become a habit for me because it has helped me deal with my anxiety,” he says. “When I had my full-time job at a grocery store and was doing my freelance work on the side, it was too much work for me. I went to therapy, but I just felt like it wasn’t working. didn’t work. So I started drawing more, which helped me focus on the positive side of life.

“Creating new art every day keeps me inspired. It’s like therapy, in a way. It makes me happy.”

Steady production, a positive attitude and an ever-changing style helped Humberto build his brand and achieve huge success…but does that mean he feels successful? The concept of success can be difficult to grasp and define for artists at every stage of their career, so what does it look like for Humberto?

“I was thinking about this a lot,” he told Everpress. “I feel like as an artist, you never feel successful, and it’s hard to describe success. Because we’re always creating. And we’re trying to evolve into more artists. I believe that an artist can be successful without satisfying others’ expectations.Success for an artist can be simply about showing their work to the world, being seen or heard.

It is a lofty vision that many artists will surely take to heart. However, that’s not all. Humberto also encourages artists not to listen to their teachers and to fuel their inspiration by practicing their craft on a daily basis.

“Draw what you want to draw, don’t listen to others and be yourself,” he adds. “I don’t like planning what I’m going to draw. I just like drawing how I feel right now, and I don’t care if I make mistakes.”

Carmen Carrera gazed at a sea of ​​faces – gay and straight; young and old; trans, non-binary and cis; people with myriad and varied identities, some still discovering how theirs is evolving.

“It was just wonderful to see so many people here, so many allies – and just [being] being able to share this space with you means a lot,” said Carrera, model, actress, trans activist and former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant from the main stage of the first-ever Montclair Pride Festival. “I think my inner child is so proud and beaming right now.”

That sentiment was shared by many onlookers and attendees at the festival, which closed parts of Bloomfield Avenue, Church Street and Park Street on Saturday afternoon to accommodate more than 150 vendors and sponsors, two performance stages and thousands of residents and visitors to Montclair. And depending on the theme of the event, many expressed pride – not just in their own LGBTQ identity or alliance, but in a community that has embraced the same.

Get the free Montclair Local app

The event was organized by Out Montclair, a nonprofit created last year by Peter Yacobellis, the first gay member of Montclair City Council, to celebrate and provide space for the LGBTQ community in the Montclair area. . For Pride Month, Out Montclair and other participating community groups hosted two weeks of events, including Pride Night at the Montclair Art Museum, Reading Scripture with Pride at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Montclair, and Drag Queens and Donut in Rabble. Rise Donuts.

The festival itself was capped off with the Montclair Pride Concert at the Wellmont Theatre, featuring Australian singer/songwriter Betty Who, known for ‘Somebody Loves You’, ‘All of You’ and ‘All Things’, her cover of “Queer Eye’s” opening number. The event attracted dozens of sponsors, including Montclair Local, which had a table on Park Street.

U.S. Representative Mikie Sherril, a resident of Montclair whose district includes most of the township, took to the main stage to talk about her time in the U.S. Navy, while the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” remained in force. . The policy, from 1994 to 2011, prohibited discrimination against gay or bisexual servicemen, but only so long as they remained confined; people who were absent were excluded from the service.

“I had so many friends who couldn’t share their life or their personal experiences without friends, who had to hide who they were, who were afraid that if someone found out who they loved, they wouldn’t have a job, they would no longer be welcome to serve their country,” Sherril said.

Discussions of LGBTQ politics and rights were addressed in Yacobellis’ own speech, which highlighted the festival’s theme “Be You. Be heard.” He urged the crowd to celebrate its LGBTQ members, but reminded attendees that there are still many barriers that LGBTQ people, especially trans youth, face.

Several states have passed or are considering restrictions on gender-affirming care for trans youth, including puberty-blocking drugs and surgery. Several states and organizations have also restricted participation in sports, so athletes can only compete with others assigned the same gender at birth; for example, a trans girl would not be allowed to play on a team with cis girls.

“We live in a time of terrible verbiage and violence against anyone different.” Yacobellis wrote in his prepared remarks, shared with the Montclair local. “We must all come together to defeat this darkness. You do it by being yourself.

Yacobellis highlighted his own work in cooperation with others in the Montclair government to advance LGBTQ protections, and thanked the community for showing an “outpouring of love and support.”

Between the speakers, the main stage hosted a variety of performances, including singer Mariah Ayscue, Fab the Duo and the Broadway cast of “Jagged Little Pill.”

“They were so talented,” said Hope Riel, a festival attendee. “It was amazing to see ‘Jagged Little Pill’ since they closed on Broadway.”

The second stage—dubbed the School of Rock stage, for one of the event’s sponsors and participating organizations—featured performances aimed at young participants, such as by the Montclair School of Rock House Band and Drag Queen Story Time.

One of the books included in Drag Queen Story Time was “Mighty May,” written by couple Claire-Voe and Kendra Ocampo.

The book was written in response to a lack of books featuring families with two mothers or two fathers. The Voe-Ocampos were also the sponsors of the festival and had set up a stand where they sold their book and told their story.

Other vendors included Veronica Johnson (on Instagram as atomic_demon_art), a trans illustrator and artist who shared her booth with friend and fellow illustrator Elise Miguel (on Instagram as elisemghell). The pair’s booth was parked outside the Eclectic Chic boutique, where Johnson works, and which let Johnson use its street space.

“I was shocked at how many people were there today,” Johnson said. “People loved my artwork and were excited to support local artists. I love this community so much and I’m happy to be a part of it.

Miguel described the festival as “absolutely amazing.

“It’s truly amazing and heartwarming to see the entire Montclair community come together and celebrate Pride in such a big way,” said Miguel.

Some booths were specifically dedicated to supporting members of the LGBTQ community, such as that of Nicolle Maroulis’ nonprofit, No More Dysphoria. The main mission of the group is to help transgender and gender non-comfortable people pay for care for their transitions. Maroulis, who identifies as a non-binary trans male queer person, started the nonprofit in 2015.

“Growing up in this region, I always admired Montclair and was disappointed that there were no outlets for young LGBTQIA+ people to explore and express themselves,” Maroulis said. “Now to see everyone coming out for the gay kids of our generation means a lot.”

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) – Artists and art lovers gather at Banbury Place this weekend for the return of the 12th annual Art Crawl.

They say being excited is an understatement.

“The energy is tremendous,” says Johna Stern. “Everyone here has worked so hard. There is a team of volunteers organizing this event and they have worked countless hours to prepare. We have amazing local artists here supporting us in addition to the tenants here in this building.

Johna Stern owns a furniture restoration studio, Studio 111, in Banbury. In her first artistic exploration since moving into the new space, she says she feels all the love.

“I think the way the community comes out and supports local artists and small businesses is amazing,” she said. “That’s the big part of life in Eau Claire.”

Even some of Banbury’s companies are getting into the art action like John Koenig of Undercity Games, whose daughter is showing off her own artistic talents.

“Everything is free-will, proceeds from donations go directly to my daughter, who produces these wonderful toilet paper tube painted animals,” he said. “They’re called Maddy’s Rolls.”

The old factory is full of paintings, ceramics, music and dance. Art Crawl board member Mindy Huntress said it was great to see this all fall into place.

“It took a lot of planning, but it’s so exciting to see everyone come today and there’s something happening around every corner,” she said.

While many already see Eau Claire as an artistic community, illustrator Mark Lone says Banbury is a community unto itself.

“I think art cultivates art,” he said. “You don’t want to like building a wall and keeping more rookie artists. You want to build a longer table and try to help people.

In addition to art exhibits, demonstrations, live music and plenty of food can be enjoyed throughout the crawl.

The following article is part of the Art Forward series of the Rahr-West Art Museum.

The Rahr-West Art Museum has two lithographs by renowned artist RC Gorman in the collection, thanks to the generosity of Ruth and John West. A print, Untitled, is currently on display on the first floor of the historic house along with other works that deal with identity. The other work, The Gossips, serves as inspiration for one of the upcoming 2022 utility box designs, which artist Kristen Lango will be painting in the coming weeks, just east of Chewy’s Bar in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

Untitled (Woman), lithograph, 1980, 1990.006.002, Gift of Mrs. John D. West

Navajo artist RC (Rudolph Carl) Gorman was born on July 26, 1931 in Chinle, Arizona. He was a notable oil painter, lithographer and sculptor. Her paintings are primarily depictions of Aboriginal women characterized by flowing forms and vibrant colors, characteristics found in the two works in the collection of the Rahr-West Art Museum.

Gorman attended reserve schools before joining the Navy in 1951. Interestingly, his father, Carl Nelson Gorman, was an early Navajo code-speaker who developed an unbreakable code used in the Pacific Theater during WWII. World War. Carl was also an artist and illustrator and RC’s grandmother was a famous weaver.

Later, RC Gorman traveled to Mexico and was influenced by Mexican masters, such as the famous painter Diego Rivera. Gorman then studied at Mexico City College on a scholarship from the Navajo people. After his year in Mexico, he opened a studio in San Francisco and modeled for art classes to help with expenses.

Gorman eventually settled in New Mexico, and much of his work was deeply influenced by his life there. In 1998, Gorman explained that growing up, his “family was rich in artistic talents and creative spirit, but not in material possessions”. He went on to explain his success:

The Gossips, lithograph, 1977, 1990.006.003, Gift of Mrs. John D. West

“I have been fortunate to live and work in the beautiful valley of Taos, an environment equally rich in art and tradition. The spirit of Taos has encouraged and inspired me, and my focus as an artist has matured here. I am truly grateful to my friends, drinking buddies, family, clients and loyal staff, all of whom have made my way of life here possible. Thank you for sharing the light.

Overall, Gorman’s work has been warmly received by collectors and critics. The New York Times dubbed him “the Picasso of Native American artists“. He was the only living artist to be included in the 1973 “Masterworks from the Museum of the American Indian” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum, a hit followed by his inclusion in the 1976 American Indian Artist series on PBS. Many celebrities have collected his work, such as Elizabeth Taylor, Gregory Peck and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Andy Warhol not only owned his work, but also painted Gorman many times.

RC Gorman died in 2005 but left behind a plethora of works that are in many museum collections including the Heard Museum, the National Museum of the American Indian and, of course, the Rahr-West Art Museum.
