Art creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future.
The fascination of art has to do with time. Visual art is the quickest of all serious cultural forms to make its full nature clear to the beholder. It's worth dwelling on the rapidity of art. It is conventional, in the moralizing rhetoric of the critic, to say Rembrandt repays a lot more time than most works of art - you can look at his pictures for a lifetime and still find new depth in them. But what if this is not the most important thing about great art? What if it's the instant effect that matters? So it's not always true that great art takes a long time to appreciate and instantaneous art is shallow. In fact, some of the most revered paintings can be appreciated much more quickly than video art - which has, as I've already conceded, brought narrative time into the gallery. Why is timebased art so popular? Does it seem more important because it takes up time? Personally, I agree with Leonardo da Vinci. The most magical thing in art is the instant and complete image.

ILLUSTRATOR - USA
Teagan White is a freelance designer and illustrator from Chicago, currently a student at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Her experience working with a diverse range of clients, from those in the music, fashion, and editorial industries to small business owners and individuals, has allowed her to reject much of the sterility of contemporary design in favor of an aesthetically-focused approach that bridges the perceived gap between graphic design and illustration. Intricate line work, naturalistic rendering, and subdued color are integral to her visual identity, while a fascination with natural history, antiquities, and mortality drives the content of her work. / FEBRUARY 2011

Alan Ariail LETTERING ARTIST - USA I am a freelance lettering artist living in the Chicago area. My work has appeared in advertising, packaging and branding projects for over 3 decades. For this issue of InPrint I selected 3 recent projects which include examples of concept sketches and vector comps. Every project starts with a pencil and paper to generate ideas. What I find fascinating at this point of my career is each line I put on a piece of paper in the concept phase has value regardless of the draftsmanship. It takes a lot of trial and error sketching to determine what can be developed and fine tuned in vector format for finished lettering. / FEBRUARY 2011

What Is A Design Brief?
First off, you may want to know what a design brief is. A design brief is something that is vital to any design project as it will provide the designer(s) with all the information needed to exceed your expectations. A design brief should primarily focus on the results and outcomes of the design and the business objectives of the design project. It should not attempt to deal with the aesthetics of design… That is the responsibility of the designer. The design brief also allows you (the client) to focus on exactly what you want to achieve before any work starts on the project. A good design brief will ensure that you / FEBRUARY 2011

ILLUSTRATOR - USA
David Fullarton is a Scottish born, San Francisco based artist. He keeps notebooks filled with scraps of paper, scribbled phrases, and other ephemera that he incorporates into his artwork. These elements represent the often overlooked stuff of daily life, which is the root of Fullarton's inspiration. He sees beauty in the ways people manage to find joy and meaning in the minutiae of existence. The artist paints vibrantly complex canvases whose disparate elements jumble and mix together in a facsimile of modern life. Fullarton compliments these with smaller mixed media drawings on paper. These paper works are sometimes the genesis of the finished paintings, but are more often stand-alone vignettes featuring forlorn characters who find themselves in compromising situations.

RECIPES AROUND THE WORLD Name Of The Dish Bobotie
Origin Of The Dish South Africa
History Of The Dish
Bobotie has a slightly sweet taste with a light curry flavor and an egg topping. In 1954, Bobotie was declared the National Dish of South Africa by the United Nations Women's Organization.
Although not particularly spicy, the dish incorporates a variety of flavours that can add complexity. For example, the dried fruit (usually apricots and raisins/sultanas) contrasts the curry flavouring very nicely. The texture of the dish is also complex, with the baked egg mixture topping complementing the milk-soaked bread which adds moisture to the dish. The Bobotie recipe was transported by South African settlers to colonies all over Africa. Today, recipes for it can be found that originated in white settler communities in Kenya, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia. There is a variation that was popular among the 7,000 Boer settlers who settled in the Chubut River Valley in Argentina in the early 20th century, in which the bobotie mixture is packed inside a large pumpkin, which is then baked until tender. A dish in a Bobotie style has been made with haggis in Scotland, but this is not true bobotie.
WHAT IS NEEDED: \\INGREDIENTS\\ 1 small onion, chopped 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 1/2 pounds lean ground beef 1 teaspoon crushed garlic 1 teaspoon turmeric 1 to 2 teaspoons curry powder 6 slices white bread, soaked in milk 2 teaspoons lemon juice 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
\\TOPPING\\ 2 eggs, beaten pinch of salt 4 bay leaves
