Art models pose for any Visual Artist

pose for any visual artist as part of the creative process. Art models are often paid, highly skilled human subjects, who aid in creating any work of art that includes the human figure. The most common types of art created using models are figure drawing, figure painting, sculpture and photography, but almost any medium may be used. Although commercial motives dominate over aesthetics in illustration, its artwork commonly employs models.. Models are most frequently employed for art classes or by informal groups of experienced artists that gather to share the expense of a model. Models are also employed by artists.

Information Technology (I.T)

It has long been believed that information technology (IT) has the potential to shift the boundaries surrounding where production takes place. Specifically, networked IT investments are supposed to reduce costs of monitoring behavior of internal and external partners, thereby improving incentives and reducing the risk of opportunistic behavior. Networked IT can also reduce costs of coordinating economic activity within and between firms. This study, by Chris Forman and Kristina McElheran, explores how IT investments influence vertical integration in supply chain relationships. Key concepts include:
  • The adoption of supplier-focused IT has an economically and statistically significant negative impact on the percentage of downstream within-firm transfers.
  • Somewhat surprisingly, adoption of customer-focused IT has no significant effect on the percentage of downstream transfers.
  • Adoption of supplier-focused IT has the largest impact on within-firm transfers when adopted in conjunction with customer-focused IT.
  • We study the relationship between different margins of information technology (IT) use and vertical integration using plant-level data from the U.S. Census of Manufactures. Focusing on the short-run decision of whether to allocate production output to downstream plants within the same firm or to external customers, we find that customer-focused IT, by itself, has surprisingly little impact. In contrast, adoption of upstream supplier-focused IT at a plant is associated with a significant decline in downstream vertical integration. However, the greatest decline in within-firm transfers occurs when supplier- and customer-facing IT are adopted together, suggesting the presence of complementarities in supply chain technology adoption. These results are consistent with the view that, by reducing external coordination costs, IT investments promote a decline in plant-level vertical integration, but only when those investments are made jointly with both suppliers and customers. Our results provide less support for the view that IT investments led to a decline in vertical integration by lowering transactions risks.

Are you a great boss?

Many employees commonly leave work complaining about their jobs. But there are also vast
numbers of very happy employees who say they like their bosses and would, in fact, be downright
unhappy if they had to work for someone else.
Do your employees love you? Or at least like working for you? A recent survey across a variety of professions yielded some interesting insights. The employees who conveyed sincere fondness for the people they work for claimed their bosses possess certain traits that made it a pleasure for the employees to come to work everyday. We were able to classify the hundreds of responses into four specific categories; communication, actions, knowledge and empathy.
In any organization, it seems the No. 1 issue is communication. It is hard to provide clear direction, present timely feedback on performance, properly motivate, listen carefully and garner support while trying to juggle everything else. But fabulous communication by the boss was high on the list of employees who like coming to work.
>> Employees overwhelmingly appreciate the times when their boss asks their opinions, and actually takes those opinions into consideration.
>> Employees felt valued when the person in charge explained why decisions were made and what the decision-making factors were in play. Employees liked knowing the decision-making process because they said it allowed them to learn their own jobs better. They believed they could develop into more productive employees by knowing how the boss thinks and the way the company conducted business.
>> Workers also liked managers who appeared genuinely interested in the employees’ ideas and suggestions. When the bosses showed further interest by asking for more information, employees felt they were valued by the organization.
>> Employees perceive that the people in charge are somehow above some of the more mundane issues that bother more junior personnel. Employees liked that managers were focused on larger, more strategic issues instead of the daily routine tasks.
>> Employees expressed gratitude when their bosses did not complain around the junior employees. Good bosses were credited with being positive and upbeat.
>> The communication trait employees most liked about their bosses was when the boss gave the employee credit for doing a good job or recognized them for accomplishing a specific task.
We’ve heard that actions speak louder than words. Terrific bosses communicate well and reiterate those words with the behavior to back them up. They show the workplace that they mean what they say by their actions.
>> Great managers make sure that employees know and understand their jobs by making sure the employees have the right training.
>> Happy employees say they know their boss stands by them when things get difficult. One person said, “I never really knew what my boss thought of me until someone else overheard him stick up for me to his boss. He doesn’t know I know, but I thought that was great of him.”
>> Good leaders get out in the workspaces to make sure employees have the right resources needed to do their jobs well.
>> A few workers applauded their boss for eliminating needless tasks. One worker said that his boss minimized time-wasting Excel spreadsheets, and eliminated repetitive and detailed PowerPoint briefs when possible.
>> Managers who acted quickly on deadlines and planned ahead so employees were not scrambling at the last minute got high marks, even though most employees understood that eleventh-hour jobs do occasionally happen. Employees say they recognized the managers’ efforts to strategically plan to precluded those frantic moments. This ultimately makes the employees’ jobs easier and more manageable.
>> Fairness in the workplace was frequently cited. Firm, but fair, is admired.
>> The action (or inaction) employees enjoyed on a daily basis was to not be nagged. Not ignored, and not neglected, but left alone and trusted to perform their duties. No one wanted a boss who hovers over them. “I don’t feel micro-managed” was a credit to the bosses’ managerial abilities.
>> A cash bonus or a promotion for hard work was, not surprisingly, repeatedly mentioned and served to inspire loyalty toward both the boss and the organization.
The boss has to know the job. It is great when the boss offers intelligent instructions, provides positive and constructive feedback while promoting, and recognizes those who deserve it. Smart bosses also seem to promote confidence among their employees. Not every leader realizes that part of his or her job is to be a teacher; but the truly fabulous bosses show greatness through sharing what they know, and by helping the individuals who work for them learn the business.
>> Employees say they don’t want nor need the boss to know every detail of heir job, but like the fact that the boss is available for inspiration, guidance, and an overall feel for the task at hand.
>> Employees expressed that the best managers are approachable and capable of providing sound decisions based on accurate information.
>> When a boss assists an employee in the learning process, employees feel they are being helped to succeed. They perceive that the boss is looking after their best interests.
By now all the managers who are still reading this are thinking they need to be a Super Hero to succeed in the workplace. Communicate well, walk the talk, and be brilliant. It sounds daunting. Do managers have to perfect in everything? No, not perfect. The other important trait employees crave is empathy for the employees’ competing family, work and other interests.
>> Bosses who were flexible with competing priorities were highly prized. Employees claimed they would rather work for someone who was receptive to flexible working hours than one who was correct all the time.
>> Employees applauded it when leaders occasionally admitted their mistakes. They felt it made it easier for the boss to understand imperfections. Employees claim they feel bad enough about occasional errors when they occur, but when the boss seemed to understand and doesn’t get overly excited about the mistake, it actually makes the employee try harder and not repeat them.
>> The bosses that stand out also understand personal life outside of work, such as family, school and the personal goals of each individual. Managers who allowed for maximum flexibility with time and concern tended to motivate employees better, resulting in more enthusiastic and productive work habits.
So, for you bosses out there, the bottom line is your employees appreciate what you do for them. They want to feel appreciated and cared about in the workplace. The time, concern, motivation and effort you bring are really helping your employees in ways you don’t see, and they are grateful. And this translates into greater success of your organization.

Talking about drawing 
Many creative people have stressed the importance of drawing for their work in other media. These quotations give an idea of the function and importance of drawing in their lives. They range in date from the 15th century to the present and demonstrate the enduring importance of drawing

Graphic design, also known as communication design, is the art and practice of planning and projecting ideas and experiences with visual and textual content. The form of the communication can be physical or virtual, and may include images, words, or graphic forms. The experience can take place in an instant or over a long period of time. The work can happen at any scale, from the design of a single postage stamp to a national postal signage system, or from a company’s digital avatar to the sprawling and interlinked digital and physical content of an international newspaper. It can also be for any purpose, whether commercial, educational, cultural, or political.
Design that’s meant to be experienced in an instant is the easiest to recognize and has been around the longest. For over a hundred years, designers have arranged type, form, and image on posters,advertisementspackages, and other printed matter, as well as information visualizations andgraphics for newspapers and magazines. Motion graphics are equally predetermined and crafted, but are meant to be experienced over a fixed time span, such as for the opening credits of a movie or an online video meant to accompany a newspaper article.
The design of books and magazines also has a long history. Whether physical or digital, these are objects that are meant to be enjoyed over time, during which the reader has control over the pace and sequence of the experience. In books, the content usually comes before the design, while in magazines, the design is a structure that anticipates written and visual content that hasn’t yet been created. Somecommercial websites or exhibition catalogues also fit in this category, as do digital or physicalmuseum displays that show information that doesn’t change. All have fixed content, but the user or reader determines their own path through the material.
Many designers also produce systems that are meant to be experienced over time, but aren’t confined to the making of objects. Wayfinding, which is a form of environmental graphics, refers to the brandingand signage applied throughout and on buildings. While each sign or symbol in a public or private building is a work of design, they’re all part of a larger system within the building. The design of the system—the relationships between all of those parts—is where the designer brings value. Similarly, while all of the artifacts of a commercial or institutional brand, such as a business cardsignlogo, or anadvertisement are individual expressions of design, how those are experienced together and over time is the design work. No part of it has been created without considering the others, or without thinking through how a target customer will encounter and then develop a relationship with that brand.
Designers are also responsible for interactive designs where the content is fluid, sometimes changing minute to minute, as well as interfaces that help users navigate through complex digital experiences. This work differentiates itself by adding another element: responding to the actions of the viewer. Editorial design for web and mobile is the most tangible example of content-driven work in this area, includingpublication websitesmobile apps, and blogs. Some design involves the presentation of streaming information, also known as data visualization. Other designers work on digital products, which are digital services or platforms that can be brought to market. Product design for web and mobile is related to software design. Sometimes different designers work on the user interface design (UI), which mostly refers to the individual layouts of pages, and the user experience design (UX), or the total experience of the user as they move through a website or app.
Type design carries aspects of almost all of these things. While the form of a single letter has meaning, a typeface, like a brand, is also composed of the relationships between characters that work together to create meaning. And like software, typefaces are licensed and can be installed on individual computers.
Depending on the scale of the context in which a designer works, the work may include one, some, or all of these things in the course of a year. Larger companies, agencies, teams, or studios may lean towards specialization, while smaller studios and groups may need to have each individual capable, if not an expert, in multiple areas.
