Mark Jenkins

A similar artist to Duane Hanson is Mark Jenkins, suggesting the human presence in some very uncanny and odd ways. While some are positioned in quite comedic ways, others are quite unsettling for an ambiguous uncanny effect.




The later images start to associate themselves with themes of death; an ominous figure sitting atop a roof, human 'waste' in the literal sense, and playful balloons attached to a corpse is all quite unsettling in an uncanny way.

Hey all, I'm Liam, a third year student.

Everyone is now using blogger on our course, and there's a nice community growing with people following each others blogs and helping each other with issues. Not everyone is linked up to each other though, and I thought a central blog for the course which everyone could post to would be a pretty nice idea. I've made one at this address:

http://ucarochester-cgartsandanimation.blogspot.com/

It would also mean that rather then relying on the slow blogfeed and having to surf through the 70 odd blogs that we have between us, we can just come straight to this one.
With a large knowledge base between everyone a lot of issues could be resolved fairly quickly, and so any problems can be posted here, and we will all have quick access to them.
Also if anyone has found any good tutorials, has started a new project blog, has had a breakthrough they're pleased with, or whatever else, they can whack it on here.
Just put a subject in the post title (eg. ISSUE - Blend Shapes, TUTORIAL - Advanced Rigging etc) and blog away.

If you want to join comment in the first post with your email address (can't do it via linking) and I'll send you an author invite. If you don't want your email address published then just send me one (liamscarlino@hotmail.com) saying that you want in.
When you've joined post saying hello, a link to your blog and whatever else you want.

Cheers, hopefully hear from you all soon!
