    Nicholas Yust got his start at the University of Cincinnati’s School of Design Art Architecture and Planning, concentrating his individual studies on Fine Art together with Indoor Architecture. Along with his modern artwork being a side project, he shifted his emphasis to engineering and ultimately obtained a diploma in metallurgical engineering.

    His particular passion and ability with metal headed him to a successful vocation with the U . s . Air Force and eventually GE Aviation. As he continued to build up his technical abilities and gain experience with metal, his particular love for artwork started to take over and his side-project of creating metal wall art work for modern art lovers moved forward to a full-time position.

    Cutting – Nicholas Yust is able to use CNC-cutting technology to cut his metal art in any shape, for example company logos and custom made requests.

    Before breaking into the fashion world, Don Ed Hardy was a tattoo artist from Southern California. He was born in 1945 and graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. In 1973, he had the opportunity to study Japanese tattoo design under Horihide, a master of classical Japanese tattoo. Don Ed Hardy’s tattoos are one-of-a-kind and recognised around the world.

    He and his wife have published a series of books about alternative art, under the label of Hardy Marks Publications. Hardy’s publishing career began with his five-part series “Tattootime.” He now has over 25 publications to his name, including many catalogs of his work.

    Although Hardy no longer tattoos, he still oversees the work done at his studio, Tattoo City in San Francisco. He continues to concentrate on other art forms, including printmaking, painting and drawing, using his distinctive style.

    In 2002, Hardy made the move into the world of fashion, licensing Ku USA to begin production of clothing using his artwork and style. Saks noticed the colorful and unique designs and began to distribute the clothing. Hardy formed an LLC with Ku USA, called Hardy Life.

    The Ed Hardy clothing line was later licensed to Christian Audigier in 2004, following a chance meeting. Celebrities quickly picked up on the new fashion line and a new trend was born: tattoo fashion. Ed Hardy stores were opened in fashion districts, including New York, Los Angeles and Dubai. Devotees of the brand consider it more of a lifestyle celebrating tattoo art, rather than simply clothing to wear.

    An Ed Hardy line is also available for kids. The line features clothing ranging from baby sizes all the way up to clothing for teens, available up to size 16. Items available include designer T-shirts, hoodies, dresses, jeans and even school supplies featuring tattoo artwork.

    A line of professional styling tools marketed under the Ed Hardy name was introduced in 2010. The tools, all featuring the Ed Hardy name and artwork, include items like styling irons, blow dryers and hair accessories.

    The Christian Audigier fragrance line first introduced Ed Hardy fragrances in 2008. The first offerings were Ed Hardy for women and Ed Hardy for men. The feminine version brings to life the vibrant tattoo art. The bright fruity scents of mango, strawberries and grapefruit are instant attention grabbers, the fragrant representation of the blazing colors in the artwork. Ed Hardy for men is woody and aromatic, with mandarin orange, bergamot and sage at the top, a hint of mint and a deep base of amber and musk.

    These fragrances were followed by other in the series, including Hearts and Daggers, Love and Luck, Born Wild and Villain. Most of the fragrances in the Ed Hardy collection are available in both men’s and women’s versions.

    Balloon Artist San Diego Series- How to make a 2- balloon spiral hat

    First of all, its a lot easier to follow the instructions in a video format rather than in a written format. For best results visit my YouTube channel under the channel name Sandiballoon.
    Now, having issued that disclaimer, here are the instructions:
    1.Take a 260 and inflate it all the way giving it a good burp. Its important that the balloon be mostly inflated. If youre worried about overinflating, then inflate all the way leaving only about a thumbtip size portion uninflated.
    2.Twist off a bubble, and HOLD it while you wrap the balloon around head. Find the point where the bubble you are holding and the balloon wrapped around the head criss-cross. Squeeze them together and twist them together. You now have a stick hat.
    3.Inflate a second balloon the same way you did for the first. Once again, fully inflate and give a good burp to release the pressure a little.
    4.Twist off a small bubble on the nozzle end, and attach it to the small bubble on the hat.
    5.Spiral the two sticks together. Its a bit easier if you are sitting down and use your knees hold the hat and stick at the base while you spiral them. It should look a bit like a barber shop pole. When you reach the end of the shorter balloon, squeeze and twist the two balloons together to lock them.
    6.Find the center of the hat at the back (directly opposite of the sticks). Pinch the center point and twist ONE SIDE of the hat. This puts an attachment point at the back that will make the next step much easier.
    7.Twist a bubble at the end of the free stick. Make sure that you hold onto the bubble until you lock it to the hat.
    8.Twist the bubble into the attachment point that you made at the back of the hat. The hat should now have a sort of triangular shape.
    9.Take the balloon at the top of the hat, towards the back and give it a little shape by squeezing the air out of the balloon (in that area) and slowly letting it back into that space. This will train the balloon to keep that shape. Play with putting that bend in various places and see the different shaped hats that you get.
    10.Place the hat on the head, smile big and take a picture!

    Those who are born between June 22nd and July 22nd will come under the sun sign called Cancer. This zodiac sign has the symbol of ‘The Crab’. Cancerians are prone to mood swings and are real extroverts. Given below are 5 famous Cancer celebrities:

    Lindsay Lohan was born on July 2, 1986 and she is a famous American singer and an actress. Her roles in films such as Freaky Friday, The Parent Trap and Mean Girls earned her great popularity.

    Prince William, Duke of Cambridge was born on June 21 1982. He is the elder son of Charles, Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales. He is second in the line of succession behind his father, to the Common wealth realms comprising of sixteen independent sovereign states.

    True Cancerians never run behind publicity and fame. However they love to bask in the limelight if it follows them. They can also get depressed occasionally and drown you into a bottomless pit through their cold behaviour. Cancerians are very sensitive and are known to hide their fears behind the veil of good humour. They are dreamers for whom sky is the limit. When they cry which is not often, it means that they are deeply hurt inside. A rough tone or harsh look can break their hearts easily.

    Shi Xinning was born on 1969 in Liaoning Province, China. Trained in China, Shi Xinnings paintings are influenced by both social realism and European styles. Using the authoritative qualities of both, Shi embarks on history painting with a twist. Taking his imagery from iconic press photos, Shis canvases faithfully represent the world as we know it, the Yalta Conference in familiar 40s sepia tone, the Queen Mum in carriage emblazoned in newspaper black and white. Its only on second glance that Shis alterations become evident. Nestled between Churchill and FDR and conversing happily with royalty, Mao takes his place amongst the great leaders of the 20th century.
    In China-fying history, Shi investigates dynamics of both the wests Eurocentric, and Chinas isolationist past world views. Humorously illustrating the Chairmans import and omnipresence in 20th c Chinese society Shis insertion of Mao into the fabric of western collective conscience seems entirely plausible. Infusing the totems of propaganda currency with a sense of normality and humility, Shi re-authors the most cherished moments of collective memory with a Forrest Gump effect, creating a specious mythology based in Hollywood schmaltz and unabashed optimism.

    Most martial artists are in excellent health and wonderful shape. Yet to find out how a martial artist can increase their kicking speed one must look to the simple facts of conditioning. It is pushing yourself to get to the next level in your kicking and that means pushing your body as well.

    While it may seem crazy the first way to speed up the kicks is to slow down the body. One important aspect of martial arts is the need for long, lean and powerful muscles. To achieve that place an individual must stretch. Unfortunately that seems to be the part of a workout that gets overlooked. Doing stretching properly is even more important since it is to relax and release the muscles not shorten them in pain.

    Warmth is the crucial aspect to stretching. Getting up and stretching first thing is not the most effective way to help your body. After a night of sleep and little movement your muscles are tight and slow. Taking a hot bath or shower is a wonderful way to wake up the muscles warmly and get them ready for stretching. Once you are warm start moving to allow the blood to begin flowing throughout the body and relaxing your muscles.

    To kick higher you have to get stronger. Do this by adding extra weights to your legs during the day to push your normal activity to the next level. However, do not start kicking when you first put the weights on. Let your muscles get used to them. Just wearing them doing your normal activities is building up your muscle tone. When you feel like you are used to wearing them then you can start with low kicks to let your legs learn the new movement.

    Finding a target to kick at is a great way of developing your mind and body connection. Hang something six inches higher than you can actually kick and try to reach the object. This will motivate you to reach the item and will allow your eyes to see and the mind to understand that it has to do more.

    When you are used to the ankle weights try kicking with them on after proper warm up and stretching. This pushes your strength to the brink.

    Then have someone video record your kick and see if you are wasting any movements. Are you taking too many steps to set up? Are you adding an extra step that not only is taking away from your speed by telling your opponent what you plan to do? Watch the tape and see where you can economize your movements to create a smoother, faster kicking process.

    Once you have seen some progress with the weight on take it off to see how much easier it is to kick faster and higher. Your foot will feel light and you will see the amazing difference these steps made to how a martial artist can increase their kicking speed.

    Work by graffiti artist Banksy has become so popular that celebrities regularly buy originals and prints.

    In 2006 American pop singer and songwriter Christina Aguilera paid 25,000 for an original of Queen Victoria as a lesbian and two Banksy prints after arranging a private viewing at a Soho gallery where the Bristol-born urban artist was exhibiting.

    Gallery owner Steve Lazarides told the Independent that the pop star already had an in-depth knowledge of Banksy prints and originals and knew exactly what sort of artwork she wanted to buy.

    A friend of Aguilera said the musician would prize the Queen Victoria picture featuring the monarch in a lesbian pose with a prostitute and hang it in her living room.

    “She’s been a huge fan of Banksy for months and was desperate to get her hands on some of his artwork,” they told the paper.

    Banksy reportedly created the controversial piece in response to the fact that Queen Victoria famously refused to pass a law outlawing lesbianism as she refused to believe such things existed.

    Hollywood mega-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are amassing a growing collection of Banksy work having spent in excess of 1 million at a contemporary art auction in London in 2007.

    Brangelina also controversially bought a Banksy painting of Michael Jackson which showed the King of Pop standing in the doorway of a cottage attempting to coax a young boy and girl into his house with sweets.

    Brad Pitt told the Times at an exhibition in America that he becoming a fan of Banksy after discovering examples of his work through the media.

    He said: “I think that this guy is really on to something. I first heard about him a year or so ago I saw something about him in a magazine.”

    Keanu Reeves, Meg White and Jude Law are just some of the famous faces who have also been spotted viewing Banksy prints and originals at exhibitions in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

    Mr Lazarides said that Banksy prints and originals are popular with celebrities because they prefer contemporary art to classical masterpieces.

    He told the Times: “They’ve got money and they don’t particularly want to spend it on a Picasso – they want to buy something that relates to their lives, their time and their culture.”

    Banksy has famously painted subversive graffiti in places such as London Zoo, the British Museum and the wall dividing the West Bank in Israel.
