Learning Flickr- Lessons from Week 3

This post is in reference to Week 3’s lessons in Flickr.  I read the lesson and learned about tagging and grouping.   I didn’t download a photo from my digital camera to flickr, but I transfered my photos from my Yahoo Photos account to Flickr.  I tagged two photos with the “sunnyvalelearners” tag:  one was from 2006, when I posed with an artist doing a painting demo in front of the library;   and the second was from my trip to Alburquerque, when I saw the launch of 800 balloons for their hot air balloon festival.

I’ve wanted to be an artist all my life. Since I was a child I’ve drawn on any scrap of paper I could get a hold of. When I went to San Jose State University, I became more exposed to the works of the great fine artists and illustrators. My college paintings were heavily influenced by the humorous illustrations of Peter De Seve, an illustrator for the New Yorker magazine. I also fell under the spell of the great muralists of the 1930s, especially Thomas Hart Benton and Diego Rivera. I graduated with a degree in Illustration. Since my time in college, my goal has been to be a successful children’s book illustrator. I’ve illustrated 3 books: Two Moms the Zark and Me by Johnny Valentine in 1993; Night Travelers by Sue Hill in 1994; and Cherubic Children’s New Classic Story Book Volume 2 for Cherubic Press in 1998. I’ve painted murals for Lester Shields Elementary School in San Jose, the Berryessa branch of the San Jose Public Library, and Grace Community Church in Los Altos. I’ve had a few illustrations published in South Bay Accent Magazine and I will have an illustration published in the January/February issue of Tikkun magazine.

    I’m sure you already know about it if you were using Yahoo Photos but I believe they are discontinuing that service in favor of Flickr, which of course is now owned by Yahoo. It sounds like you’re all set!
