Ivy Lane - Speech at the Second Life Convention in Boston

My Friend Ivy Lane!

Hey All,

How's it going?

Check out my friend and patron (Provocative Arts Gallery and Provocative Designs ), Ivy Lane's speech (just click on the title of this article for the link or here ) made during the SL Convention in Boston just a couple of weeks ago. Ivy along with her partner Phil Metalhead (whom I also express great thanks to) are the owners of Provocative Arts where my show Best in Purple is housed.

Twenty percent of the sales in that gallery go to benefit the Pixel To Pixel Foundation in Second Life which provides a stipend of 500L/week (which is a lot in SL terms!) to those from any country applying to the organization who are receiving a disability in Real Life. The head of this group is Jadyn Firehawk, if you require information or would like to make an application or contribution.

This agency runs entirely on donations. Here's an article from the Harrisburg Second Life Examiner about her and the org . Ivy Lane acts as an assistant to Jadyn in this project. Pixel To Pixel Foundation is a sister to the group The Hope Village which provides free housing, also for people with a disability in RL. Speaking for myself here - this is greatly appreciated by starving artists like me! Thanks to Ivy, I am where I am in Second Life today due to the fortune of meeting her. My exhibit Best in Purple in her gallery is dedicated to her. There are many other folks benefitting from this program who would not be able to have this kind of life in SL.

It's about semiotics:

"se·mi·ot·ics also se·mei·ot·ics (sm-tks, sm-, sm-)
n. (used with a sing. verb)
The theory and study of signs and symbols, especially as elements of language or other systems of communication, and comprising semantics, syntactics, and pragmatics."

The Free Dictionary

AND Second Life!!!

Wow, what a great and unifying way to look at Second Life!

OK Folks Here's the Canadian Political Content - Whistler Old Growth Forest to be CUT!!!!



Remember the scenes of Whistler Mountain, British Columbia, Canada during the 2010 Winter Olympics? Well, soon you will never have the opportunity to see them again.

Let me take this opportunity to again CONDEMN Gordon Campbell the leader of British Columbia, Canada for destroying the natural beauty of our province not to mention killing as much of it as possible while in power these last almost 8 years. What is he thinking!!!!!?!?!? I would also like to vilify the so-called mayor of Whistler, Ken Melamed for this holocaust of trees to be visited there.

Yes, I am a tree hugger and I have no shame about it! This is going to destroy the resort area and kill animals too.

Please take a moment to email the mayor of Whistler: MayorsOffice@ Whistler.ca and the premier at premier.gov.bc.ca. Tell them you will not go to whistler and will tell your friends not to go until they promise not to cut down the trees.

Thank you,

AND now back to Second Life...

Hi Folks,

How are you doing?

This show is dedicated to Ivy Lane who is the owner of the gallery with her SO Phil Metalhead. I am where I am in SL thanks to Ivy! Thanks so much Ivy. BTW Ivy spoke at the SL Convention in Boston this past weekend and a recording should be available soon! She met the other Phil (lol), Philip Linden at the conference!

This is a charity show (loads of other exhibits in the gallery as well) to benefit the Pixel to Pixel Foundation (Jadyn Firehawk)...
Interview with Jadyn Firehawk in the Harrisburg Second Life Examiner:
http://www.examiner.com/second-life-in-national/pixel-to-pixel-foundation-features-artwork-by-disabled-residents-2

...which provides a stipend to those in SL who are on RL disability pensions (any country) and to the Provocative Arts Gallery (Ivy Land and Phil Metalhead) which provides profit sharing spaces to artists who have disabilities in RL. Twenty percent of each sale is divided between the two organizations.

Moi, Fractals and Specials

I specialise in fractal artwork which I've been making for the past 12 years. Essentially a fractal (google for masses more info) is a formula which describes natural objects. Some examples are spirals, seashells, leaves, flowers, trees and cityscapes. I use fractal graphic generators to create my images and usually display them as paintings and on other things as well.

Making colourful and interesting pictures is most important to me. Sometimes I choose names that are pertinent to me at the moment but usually they are fairly random! It's up to the individual viewer to decide what they envision there.

All the paintings and objects are copyable and modifiable so that you can size them to fit your place. Remember to make a copy before you start modifying. If you change the texture on your only copy, you will lose the original.

There are two gifts - Torso in purple and Fleur vase in purple (full perms) and two specials - sculptie chairs with my textures on them @ 50L/each.

Thanks so much and please enjoy the exhibit.

Leonie Szczepanski ["Shapansky"]

PS I also make textures and other little things as well as free shapes for all (1) especially new players. Can do custom orders as well.

PPS Regarding organization and invitations:

I'll send out another reminder just before the show. I will also send to my groups so please excuse double postings.

In addition, I will open a conference chat just before and possibly during the show - don't mean to spam you, I just want to be sure that all are aware. And those dang mass tp's!!! Don't you just hate them? Lol! I will do my best not to tp you more than once unless requested and will also try to exclude those who are already there! However, accidents happen and SL's systems aren't perfect. People pop off and on SL quickly. So please bear with me and know that I'm not trying to cause any problems. There are many people who request special reminders which I also try and fulfill if I'm not overwhelmed in im boxes! It's rather tricky to do it all individually not to mention impossibly time consuming. I apologies for any mix up's in advance! These are just the standard ways of announcing events in SL today - ! Hehe! I apologies if I can't get back to you quickly or miss your message - im or notecard me again!

I'm to have a shop opening in September for my rezday party September 9, 2010, so please keep that in mind too!

Thanks,

Dany French Touch and other cool stuff

Dany French Touch Featured

Located on a Louisiana bayou (New Toulouse Bayou), Dany Bimbogami’s shop is a wonder of distressed wood, gorgeous flowers and starry particles. I felt I was really in the antebellum Southern United States. This is a designer that deserves way more attention!

I started doing the Platinum Hunt on August 7 as I really wanted that Magika Diamond hair and um, one other thing which wasn’t ready to buy (where was that? Lol) and who should I spy but Dany herself. I took the opportunity to introduce myself and compliment her work. I passed her my sample pack of paintings ‘Silken’ (if you haven’t received this folder, please im me in world) and she promptly said she would hang them in her shop! I nearly died! Then before I knew it, she had passed me two dresses: Alis, a long black gown with amazing purple transparent sash (incredibly made on the skirt layer) and poofy sleeves, 150L) and Mona – brown with a shiny bodice and fluffy skirt, 1L) and promised to send me all her dollarbies! What a thrill! So I told her I had to blog her and this proved to be one of my more ambitious efforts, lol.

You’ve got to check out her shop even if you’ve been there before! She has a big whack of stunning dresses and gowns (from free – 150L maximum) and groovy looking outfits for guys. Much of her work leans toward a romantic, period look and would be great for RP. The guy’s stuff is to die. All her designs are unusual, imaginative, sweetly painted and include lots of pieces.

The Muriel gown (reminiscent of Marie Antoinette style) and the Denez suit for guys are free in the LC (10 minutes) and worth waiting for. Xion managed to get on the chair before me. Nice! Well, of course he doesn’t have as many things as I do so I sorta let him!

I’ve taken some pics and will post those today.

Platinum Hunt
You are looking for a dark ring box with a pearl in it, sometimes very tiny. The creators were asked to hide things with only medium difficulty however even with all my tricks I found some of them quite difficult and had to join the group for help, lol. Creators were also asked to put the items no more than 40 meters away from the landing point and on the same level as the landing point though I did find a number of items were not compliant with these rules and had to search far beyond the parameters. I’m just not the type of hunter that’s in it for the challenge! I do love and appreciate the hunts and, because hunts were started as a way of bringing traffic and sales to the participating shops (of course it’s a mutual benefit though!) and especially as the items in this one are 10L (which is billed as being the next step in the evolution of hunts, lol, which I thought rather pretentious and seems to have encouraged more 10L hunts which can be problematic for those of us on a low income) I often wish that things didn’t take hours to find. But that’s just me!

The hunt started August 8 and runs until August 31. Some of the best designers and organizers in SL have been included and the group is quite helpful. I strongly encourage you to google the hunt. Baby Monkey and other sites have hints. The hunt items have been well blogged and I suggest picking and choosing what you like from the blogs and only going to those shops to keep your time and expenses down (this is my advice for all hunts nowadays as there has been too much time spent (on my part) hunting for things that I find aren’t suited to my style and quality standards and end up deleted. This may sound callous or even ungrateful to some but that’s the beauty of SL (and that’s not my implication) – you can often do things independently. The main thing here is to have fun (without anyone getting hurt of course – well, unless they want to get hurt! LOL!)

If you do decide to go the traditional route, the starting point is Ispachi .

This hunt is definitely worth it and there are a lot of very cool items to be found including some large fat packs of hair and skins.

AMILLI cool stuff
Buckle Boots brown (or reddish) patent, free group gift here

Marukin
Green dotted tote bag 1L
Cute poses and animations 1-25L

Bare Rose (::: B@R ::\
Finally found the free and 1L section at B@re Rose! There is a free chain mail set, cuddle chair, clothes, SF outfits, fans (uchiha), FREE AO’s for male and female, weapons, hairs, skins, boots, wings, shadows for clothing makers, SL2.0 Beta items (fine for Emerald Beta too), jewellery and many other things!

M<<<==Animals
Really cute animals especially cats for reasonable animal prices! (range from 200 something to 600 something). I hope to buy one someday!

JAZUMI
Cool little things such a mouthies, tons of shoes for 75L/pair, LB’s with more shoes and typical little Japanese summer beach shoes in white for 1L. Note that you will likely land in a field, walk to a bright blue door in a purple brick building and go down the stairs for the LB’s and such and down another floor to get to the shoes

Sanu
Blog: Kat Johnston
A most cute store – has practically everything you can imagine and more: cheapie wall includes Glitter-Pop Earring in green (wearing them above in purple, the only thing that I couldn’t find in the store now) for 2L!, Sick Day Skin 50L, Instant Winter window 15L and cupcake skybox 1L! You’ll find more skins, lots of flat shoes, skyboxes, more skins, faun (well ok succubae) shoes and outfits, hair, monocles, textures, a pea pod couch, Sanu Story Quest Library, Seven Seas Fishing for cool pastel fish and sushi ice-cream cones, Nom Nom Cupcake gifts, random prize giver and a huge ton of mouthies live maybe you’ve never seen before! Oh, it’s also in the Needle in a Haystack Hunt

HOC Industries
Great shoes, glasses, hair, other accessories and clothing. Furniture too. for both genders. Colour change shoes for as little as 30L!

#Before Sleep#
Large free and 1L selection her including the cutest bikini/skirt sets and other cute girl’s clothing, nice guy’s jeans and T’s (for around 40-50L), participating in quite a few hunts, gatchas, also textures, poses, furniture and art

DUTCH TOUCH skins
Is having a 50% off sale for all, not just members (250L to join). These skins are delicious and definitely worth the current 500L price tag. The men’s skins are super too, really cute. After finding Mynerva though, and Dutch Touch really WAS my favourite before, I confess that no other skin, even the really pricy ones can measure up to her (Rhapsody Wilde’s) detail, realism and perfection! So kill me. I really hope that other skin creators will take note of her work and consider raising their standards and setting more affordable prices since they are no longer state of the art.

Have fun!

Featuring TELLAQ Skins for Guys

Featuring TELLAQ Skins for Guys

Yesterday while trolling for the new skin Ronald on the LC, Xion had the fortune to meet the creator and owner of his favourite skins, Tellaq Guardian. He told Tellaq about me and the blog and Tellaq suggested he give Xion two skins for the price of one for the purposes of the blog! Xion has already worn the Max skin previously on the blog. Xion and I are so lucky sometimes!

Tellaq makes the most amazing skins in a number of ethnicities, particularly Afro/Black ones and also Caucasian and Asian looks. The skins range in price from FREE (often a new one on the LC or MM) to 700L for one to around 2500L for a huge set. He also makes gritty/real skins for women, just across the courtyard and there is a LC there as well.

Xion picked the Ronald, Francis and Vincent skins to show off to you. Guys, the deal includes an avatar shape in addition to the skin! I strongly suggest that you demo some skins today. There are even skins for Depp and Brad! There are some jeans on the MM and always a special or too. And Tellaq is prolific too! He comes out with new skins regularly.

Check it out folks!

No double click tp in here so I had to cam in and find a place to sit. There are some gorgeous gowns in here with prices higher than my usual range, lol. Go to walk into another section and discover that I have to squeeze through two giant non-phantom photo boards right in the middle of the staircase….other skins here are 1250L, kinda lost my motivation……..lol
