Painting can be so much more than a mere hobby - it can be a vehicle transforming your mind, body, and spirit! Painting and bravely embracing the challenges of creativity sparks a revolution that involves heart, creativity, courage, and trust! Artistic pursuits such as painting have the power to soothe, heal, and connect a person to their truest self. For author Flora Bowley, making art and expressing herself creatively have always served as potent forms of personal evolution and holistic healing. Creative Revolution is the reader's key to unlocking the door to their own personal journey while making beautiful art. Creative Revolution is the culmination of Flora's life's work as an artist, offering guidance for others to embrace their authentic selves through paint. She has taught more than sixty workshops since she wrote her first book, Brave Intuitive Painting, and has witnessed miraculous things when people engage with the intuitive painting process. Creative Revolution is the next best thing to taking a course from Flora. Many readers and students can't help but exclaim, "This was about so much more than painting!" After reading Creative Revolution, readers will have a deeper connection to their intuition, increased confidence to make bolder choices, freedom to let go and explore various options, an understanding that everything is transformable, the trust that it will all work out in the end, and a renewed sense that creating can be fun and playful. All of this powerful transformation begins with paint. Flora has been writing and reflecting on these transformational aspects of the creative process for years. Creative Revolution is an insightful and practical guide for realizing the transformational power of fully embracing your creativity.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

A revealing look at the shows that helped TV emerge as the signature art form of the twenty-first century In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the landscape of television began an unprecedented transformation. While the networks continued to chase the lowest common denominator, a wave of new shows on cable channels dramatically stretched television’s narrative inventiveness, emotional resonance, and artistic ambition. Combining deep reportage with cultural analysis and historical context, Brett Martin recounts the rise and inner workings of a genre that represents not only a new golden age for TV, but also a cultural watershed. Difficult Men features extensive interviews with all the major players, including David Chase, David Simon, David Milch, and Alan Ball; in addition to other writers, executives, directors and actors. Martin delivers never-before-heard story after story, revealing how cable television became a truly significant and influential part of our culture.

The purpose of The Creative Revolution! is to galvanize positive, worldwide non-violent action. Too often the citizens have resorted to violence and the world is saturated with it, night, and day. Surely, it is time to step away from crude, violent entertainment, and vicious methods for solving disputes and misunderstandings. Instead, we need to look for imaginative and creative solutions to solve mankind's dilemma, hence the birth of this project. Rather than use violence to settle disputes, we need to call on more powerful resources. Knowledge, prayer, and intuition are the source of power, and true freedom lies in personal responsibility and conscious awareness. We must pay attention to our surroundings, discontinue thoughtlessly exploiting, and brutalizing one another--and ravishing the Planet. The general public needs to be more deeply engaged to help save our precious Earth, and ourselves from further destruction and misery. Everyone should be intelligently involved by informing themselves and then interacting with community leaders, political authorities, political parties, church leaders, health professionals, and environmental groups. Most importantly, it is essential that we treat each other and all living species with respect, but this is not being done. Daily respect for one another has greatly diminished. Sadly, through greed, apathy and thoughtlessness we are destroying each other by needless wars, by spiteful gossip, envy, and callous indifference. Rapidly, and relentlessly humanity is on a suicidal course--depleting the natural resources of the Planet to the point where our very survival and that of other species is severely threatened. World poverty is a tremendous problem. Disgracefully, there is a huge waste of food, and resources. It is hard to comprehend mankind's inability or unwillingness to express compassion or to spend any time on the topic of our combined destructive behaviour. The purpose of The Creative Revolution is to reach out to those who are genuinely concerned about the state of the world's deteriorating environment, the massive loss of species, human poverty, declining privacy, the erosion of personal freedoms, declining morals, emerging viruses, health issues, and the rapid decline of civility. There are those who would genuinely like to participate in improving things but do not have the time, or the resources to research facts or to locate appropriate persons, institutions, civil society groups, action groups, and cutting edge health discoveries. Consequently, it is difficult to participate meaningfully without credible facts or know what to do, or where to find appropriate and accurate information, guidance and direction, or to whom one should address concerns. Hopefully, this project will remove many of those excuses. The Creative Revolution! is meant to be a stepping stone for motivation. There is nothing definitive about it. Instead, this project is merely a beginning, and one that will evolve and grow over time with enthusiastic participation. In conclusion, I wish to express my gratitude to those who wrote the many fascinating and informative books, and those who formed action groups and put their organizations and information on the Internet--thus making this project so much more comprehensive and accessible than would otherwise have been possible. Undoubtedly, there are some extraordinary individuals, educated, knowledgeable, experienced, and generous but many of these dedicated souls have been tucked away. For the most part, they have remained unknown and invisible to the bulk of humanity, and for this, we are infinitely the poorer. With this in mind, it is my pleasure to draw attention to some of these exceptional persons, and groups throughout this project so that you may learn things you had not heard about and become motivated and inspired--thus giving you the opportunity to advance and add to The Creative Revolution! in your own way.

Creativity On Demand

Business consultants everywhere preach the benefits of innovation—and promise to help businesses reap them. A trendy industry, this type of consulting generates courses, workshops, books, and conferences that all claim to hold the secrets of success. But what promises does the notion of innovation entail? What is it about the ideology and practice of business innovation that has made these firms so successful at selling their services to everyone from small start-ups to Fortune 500 companies? And most important, what does business innovation actually mean for work and our economy today? In Creativity on Demand, cultural anthropologist Eitan Wilf seeks to answer these questions by returning to the fundamental and pervasive expectation of continual innovation. Wilf focuses a keen eye on how our obsession with ceaseless innovation stems from the long-standing value of acceleration in capitalist society. Based on ethnographic work with innovation consultants in the United States, he reveals, among other surprises, how routine the culture of innovation actually is. Procedures and strategies are repeated in a formulaic way, and imagination is harnessed as a new professional ethos, not always to generate genuinely new thinking, but to produce predictable signs of continual change. A masterful look at the contradictions of our capitalist age, Creativity on Demand is a model for the anthropological study of our cultures of work.

While critics have long disparaged commercial television as a vast wasteland, TV has surprising links to the urbane world of modern art that stretch back to the 1950s and ’60s During that era, the rapid rise of commercial television coincided with dynamic new movements in the visual arts—a potent combination that precipitated a major shift in the way Americans experienced the world visually. TV by Design uncovers this captivating story of how modernism and network television converged and intertwined in their mutual ascent during the decades of the cold war. Whereas most histories of television focus on the way older forms of entertainment were recycled for the new medium, Lynn Spigel shows how TV was instrumental in introducing the public to the latest trends in art and design. Abstract expressionism, pop art, art cinema, modern architecture, and cutting-edge graphic design were all mined for staging techniques, scenic designs, and an ever-growing number of commercials. As a result, TV helped fuel the public craze for trendy modern products, such as tailfin cars and boomerang coffee tables, that was vital to the burgeoning postwar economy. And along with influencing the look of television, many artists—including Eero Saarinen, Ben Shahn, Saul Bass, William Golden, and Richard Avedon—also participated in its creation as the networks put them to work designing everything from their corporate headquarters to their company cufflinks. Dizzy Gillespie, Ernie Kovacs, Duke Ellington, and Andy Warhol all stop by in this imaginative and winning account of the ways in which art, television, and commerce merged in the first decades of the TV age.

In the first part of this warm and funny memoir Al Hampel relates his life growing up a poor kid in the industrial city of Paterson, New Jersey. He attends the Y camp in nearby Pennsylvania as a charity case wearing hand-me-down donations with labels featuring assorted names he never heard of. Just the beginning of his identity crisis he writes. After high school with WW II in full swing he enlists in the Navy and serves on a repair ship in the Pacific. With benefits from the GI bill Hampel earns a degree in marketing from NYU. Following a series of small time copywriting jobs, Al lands a position in Young&Rubicam, an ad agency he could only dream of joining . Y&R was considered the most creative of all the shops on Madison Avenue. He recounts his rise through the ranks, stepping around and over the very talented copywriters who wrote the award winning advertising that set Y&R apart. Along the way he describes the ads and the work habits that helped him scale the Everest of copy departments to become copy chief. Hampel was a pioneer in the writing of cast or integrated commercials. He would get the scripts of the most popular TV shows weeks in advance and write a minute second ending tailored to the story line of the entire episode. The second ending contained the sponsors commercial. Viewers believed they were seeing a continuation of the show they were watching but instead they were exposed to a commercial seamlessly and entertainingly. Shows that Hampel wrote second endings for included, Jack Benny, Danny Thomas, Andy Griffith, Hogans Heroes, Lucy, Gomer Pyle, Jean Arthur, and Laugh In. In those years Hampel wrote the endings to more TV shows than any other writer for television. In the course of working on the Lays Potato Chip account Al chose Buddy Hackett to replace Bert Lahr who had been the beloved Lays spokesman before passing away. It was not an easy transition, but Al formed a close and mutually respectful relationship with Hackett that led to the creation of dozens of humorous spots and a profitable alliance for Frito Lay. In some of the funniest anecdotes in the book Hampel tells of his travels with Buddy, the Vegas years and the celebrities he meets along the way. One chapter describes, How Buddy Hackett became the Lays Potato Chip spokesman and how he blew the job". In the 1970s, Al Hampel wrote one line that he will ever be remembered for and that is now quoted in ad agencies the world over, Its Not Creative Unless It Sells. Recently he updated the line in keeping with the surge of Internet advertising. From hits and views you can tell everything but will it sell.

Richard James Burgess draws on his experience as a producer, a musician, and an author in this history of recorded music, which focuses on the development of music production as both art form and profession. This comprehensive narrative begins in 1860 with the first known recording of an acoustic sound and moves chronologically through the twentieth century, examining the creation of the market for recorded sound, the development of payment structures, the origins of the recording studioand those who work there, and, ultimately, the evolution of the recording industry itself. Burgess charts the highs and lows of the industry through the decades, ending with a discussion of how Web 2.0 has affected music production. The focus remains throughout the book on the role of the music producer, and Burgess offers biographical information on key figures in the history of the industry, including Fred Gaisberg, Phil Spector, and Dr. Dre. Undergirding Burgess's narrative is the argument that while technology has historically defined the nature of music production, the drive toward greater control over the process, end result, and overall artistry came from producers. In keeping with this unique argument, The History of Music Production incorporates clear yet in-depth discussion of the developmental engagement of technology, business, and art with music production. Burgess builds this history of music production upon the strongest possible foundation: the key transitions, trends, people, and innovations that have been most important in the course of its development over the past 136 years. The result is a deeply knowledgeable book that sketches a critical path in the evolution of music production, and describes and analyzes the impact recording, playback, and disseminative technologies have had on recorded music and music production. Central to the field and a key reference book for students and scholars alike, it will stand as a companion volume to Burgess's noted, multi-edition book The Art of Music Production.
