Review // Superheroes: The Art of Alex Ross

Review // Superheroes: The Art of Alex Ross - 5 March to 15 June, 2014

[this beautiful mural was the only thing I was allowed to shoot.]
Went to this exhibition on a Tuesday and was turned away because they are opened only on Wednesday thru Sunday. It was on the website but I got confused because my calendar was GMT+8 Manila not GMT+1 Paris

I skipped the scheduled afternoon tour to SACRE COUR & MONTMARTRE FUNICULAR and got dropped off near Mona Bismarck American Center for Art & Culture, paid my 7€ fee, got a free English guide and dove in.

Photography was not allowed inside the exhibition except for a big mural. The guard was actually shadowing me.

The exhibition is not huge by any means about 3 to 4 rooms but lot's of great art on display and I spent some time looking at the works and reading the guide for some additional insights on the works displayed.

I am did not go deep into comics when I was younger, so you could say I am a casual comic book fan but I do appreciate Ross' work. It's really great!

Anyway, I loved this exhibition, I especially liked his drawings / comics he made as a child.

Also spent extra few minutes on these...
Justice League
Shazam / Capt. Marvel
Human Torch

Lynette Ross (his mom) also had two works on display and you know where he got his talent.

If this exhibition comes to a town near you, please do check it out.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
