Chinita's Fair Campaing

Good afternoon people, welcome back again to my blog...Today it's time to talk about traditions, here in my country, specifictly Maracaibo, we celebrate something call "Chinita's fair", it's a celebration of 3 days from November 17th to November 19th, and is the most important celebration of the year.

For the final project of English, we have to create in group, a campaing for the Fair and put it on Second Life to let everyone in the world see it. We decide to create 5 pieces: 3 posters, 1 Logo and a Bridge that will be use as a non-conventional publicity and exhibition of our products.

This is the fisrt one. It's our logo to invite people to the fair,
This was made by my partner Arnaldo Lugo.

 The logo was made very simple but attractive to indicate the persons from another countries what it's going to be celebrating.

This is the poster made by Arnaldo Lugo too.
The concept was to bring the musical aspect of the fair that are
the ''Gaitas'' (Traditional music).
 The gaitas are our traditional music, we hear it 24 hours, 7 days of the week, is our identity, our culture, they bring the festivity, color and joy of the celebration to the fair, hearing the cuatro (small version of a guitar), maracas and drums.

Well, now It's my turn to show you what I've made:

This is a Poster made by me, Patz Eltic, in honor to our virgin.
I made this poster based on the crafts that are always selling in front of the church where the image of Chiquinquira's Virgin is. It's very minimalist, a geometric sinthesis with cheerful a vivid colors to represent the hopes and believes of our people for our patroness. I also made an index card about the poster, because the teacher tell us, to indicate what is the piece that we created.

Now we have another poster created by my other partner Maria Marcano (Mahoureta), It's also a poster in honor to our virgin, but a little more elaborated than mine:

''This poster highlights the most important and attractive icons of the chinita's virgin, using symmetry to order the planes on which are the images and other elements.'' she explained.

Next, we have what we can call a "Non-Conventional publicity" (As the name speaks explain it, it's a publicity very unique, extravagance about a product that is trying to attract persons to see what it is).

This is the Bridge of Maracaibo, a very turistic monument, where
are always cars passing by, and is the pride and glory of every
zuliano.This bridge was also made by Arnaldo Lugo.
My partner made this bridge at Second Life using the tools for building and I ask him to send me a screenshot, It's amazing what you can do at that place, I mean look at it, It's perfect!, I thank my teacher to show us this fantastic world and a way to show our work to the people outside.

This is meee! I'm in Second Life...We are just like twins jah?
xD jajaja!

 It was kind of funny make the avatar look exactly like me, specially for my best friend Gabriel, who was always teasing me and make fun when the avatar was getting a little amorphous xD jajaja even I was laughing!...

And Finally the last picture, It's a picture that was taken in our classroom, those are all my classmates and their avatars (some of them) at Second Life, I finally get to see the picture after 2 months.

OMG I look so bad! x'( I didn't know and I was awake last night trying to
finish a work and I didn't even make-up x(.
So...To finish this post, I'll let you a mind map about what you should do to make a campaing for a product:

Well, that's all for today and I hope you can join us and celebrate with us our most important festivity of the year, we'll have an open exhibition this weekend, so join us to celebrate our Chinita...Happy Holidays!.

See you around,

Job Interview

Good night bloggerholics! what's up with your lifes? mine it's getting better! :) I'm going to talk you about job interviews and how to handle it to get the job that you're aspiring to get!..

First! I watched this video, I recommended to you:, and this is what I learn:

1.- Not every interview are equals, in some of then start with a couple of minutes of small talks to get to know the interviewers, and then, they can ask you about your education, experiences, benefits for the company, etc. and others can ask you more about your habilities or how to handle some kind of situations. Remember that you must have your personal stuffs like the briefcase or folders next to you or in you knees, because the desk of your future boss is their own space, and you need to respect that, and also be pacient.

2.- Sometimes you getting interview with one person, and in others its A GROUP of persons. When this happens just relax, and remember that you have to adapt your answers for every people in the group, if you get interviewer by a male and female, you must remember that females tend to ask more about feelings and stories kind of stuffs, while the males tend to ask more directly.

3.- Always dress nice for sucess. You must dress nice, sophisticated, formal, professional, clean, that depends of the job you're applying to. And try not to over-react, don't make the impression that you're trying to hard like wearing too much make-up, or wearing too much accesories, always make it simple.

4.- Always make eye contact, pay attetion of what they're saying, be respectful, enthusiastic, energetic, positive, always smile, and give a nice firm handshake when you're with your interviewer. They have to see your positive attitude but also be aware of your personality, the 80% of your job opportunity depends on that.

5.- In a coffe/restaurant interview, there are always tricks. They're not only going to see if you have experience or a great education, they're also going to see you reaction of any kind of situation and your eating manners. Make sure to have a dinning etiquette, being focus even when you have too much distractions in the place of work and talk in a audible level.

6.- If you see that your interview it's poor, don't be sad, just ask your interviewer where you went wrong and take note on what you need to get better, and always be energetic and positive attitude

7.- If in any case you get an interview by the phone, it can be as tricky as the coffe/restaurant one, why?, easy, because you can't see body language or facial expressions of the person that is in the other side of the line, so you have to make sure to have a lot of inflection in your tone of voice, because that's the only first impression you're going to give.

8.- The companies are not interest in your personal things, they're only interested in how can you be useful and make then better, so don't waste the time talking about personal experiences, family status, ethnicity, etc.

9.- If at the end of the interview you don't get a callback, don't be shy to call them!, be proactive about you career search, don't waste the time waiting for them, because they might get busy or go to another town. And always give them thanks for assisted you...

10.- If even with that you don't get a callback, don't be upset or sad, just don't give up and keep trying, you'll get a good job with practice and a good attitude! :)...

Hope this have been useful for all you guys out there that are looking for a job, always glad to help!

See you next time!

Visiting UWA 3D Open Art Challenge

Good morning people, It's been a while...Today's post I'm going to tell you my experience at the 3D Art Challenge of UWA. It's like an art gallery but virtual, at Second Life. It was really amazing, I love being there, It was a really big place...BUT I MEAN REALLY BIG SPACE!...I want to assume that is because still need to get the other art scultures of other artists xD jajaja!. This was suppose to be a contest, this art scultures where going to exhibit for months and the winner gets money...not real money, Second Life money (Yes, they got their own money like every online game).

I try to talk to someone in there, but there was only me at the exhibit xD...And when finally someone arrive, just say ''Greetings'' and left xD....oh well...

When I got there I was exploring all the scultures, I love then all! they were just amazing!

Sphere of coloooors! How cute! I love it!
I don't know why that ''Person'' over there sitting on the bank
has a name like ''PatzElric Resident'' but it was a little scary
I thought someone was stoling my identity xD.

I love that arc of colors! <3

This are the specifications of the art Challenge. Good deal.

I like this one. I not sure what It is, but it looks kind of Japanese.
I like it. It calls ''Miso Zusanowa''.

Minotaur of Carton. Amazing! I love it. So historic.

This was king of funny to see! xD.
Seriously? even in a virtual world, still exist rude people?

Ohh I think they exist...xD

My favorite piece of art without any doubts was this one: It's from someone call ''Cherry Manga''...I JUST LOVE IT! it's so fantastic, I would love to use this like a background for one of my mangas!, and it reminds me a movie call ''Dancing in the rain'', it's a musical.

DANCING IN THE RAIN (8)xD jajaja! I need to do it...
Seriously! x'D
I think learning how to make this 3D scultures would be useful for many reasons:

1.- Express you feelings and creativity with the rest of the world.
2.- Learn how to animate to make things at your own, maybe for a movie that become famous one day.
3.- Inspiration for your own creations (for me, use this like a background for one of my mangas xD)

Well, that's all for today, hope you like it. See you around.

Prefix and Suffix

So...Good evening ladies and gentleman addict to, Welcome again to my humble blog about graphic designer and more, I need to update you about what's been going on this days...So, I'm going to make many cosplays for next month and I have a grupal cosplay for next year, which maybe my boyfriend will join me and some friends! HOW NICE~<333...Many works for University, and still in my job, I'm also going to learn Japanese next year, I'm so excited! <3, and still very tired...anyway, let's go to the thing that matters, today I'm going to talk you about Prefix and Suffix...So WHAT ARE THEY?

What is a suffix?

A suffix is a word ending. It is a group of letters you can add to the end of a root word*
e.g. walking, helpful

*A root word stands on its own as a word, but you can make new words from it by adding beginnings (prefixes) and endings (suffixes).
For example, 'comfort' is a root word. By adding the prefix 'dis' and the suffix 'able' you can make new words such as 'discomfort' and 'comfortable'.

What is a Prefix?

A prefix is a group of letters which you can add to the beginning of a root word* to change the meaning of the word. e.g. mis + fortune = misfortune

*A root word stands on its own as a word but you can make new words from it by adding beginnings (prefixes) and endings (suffixes).
For example, 'comfort' is a root word. By adding the prefix 'dis' and the suffix 'able' you can make new words such as 'discomfort' and 'comfortable'.

 So now we make that clear, we have also a game that my teacher put in her blog, I did great, until I reach the part of words with prefix and suffix at the same word x'D jajaja!, I need practice and learn morex3...So I let you the link if you want to practice :)

Information bring it to you from my english teacher Doris Molero,
If you want to play this game click HERE

That's all for today, See you next time, and remember:

"You're special in your own way, don't let anyone ever change that :)"
