I need a favor...

Post by Lady Jayde on Mon Sep 28, 2009 10:16 pm

One of the classes that I'm taking this semester is Oral Communications. It's pretty ironic that a person who doesn't like to talk a lot would take a class that requires her to give several speeches over the course of a semester. I never professed to be a brain child.

Anyway, for my first speech I've decided to do a 5 minute bit about face painting safety (I figured with Halloween coming up...it would be appropriate). The problem is that I don't have many pictures of my work...because when I'm working, taking pictures are the last thing on my mind. What I need are 5 or 6 pictures of faces (and bodies) that you guys have done for my opening slide. I am leading in with how popular face painting has been and that it's no longer simply a few juvenile squiggles on an eager child and that it has become a career for some and an art form for many.
I have pictures of my kids, but like I said, little else (and my practice head might scare some of my classmates).

If I could get permission to use a couple of pictures from you guys for my presentation, I'd really appreciate it. I'm even willing to send you a copy of my presentation slide for approval prior to using it. I really really appreciate any help you guys can give me!

Oh and if I can have a volunteer to let me use a picture of your set up for a slide that constrasts a good set up with a...uh...less savory one. I'd appreciate that as well! I'd use mind, but there's the not using the camera I always bring with me to gigs. I have the picture of my old set up in my craftroom, but it looks hokey and staged given the context of my speech...I want a believe-able picture, kwim?

Thanks in advance!

you should have a slide that shows what face painting usto be.....just a heart or a little rainbow and take it all the way to full faces and bodys. Mark Reid is always willing to share his excellent photos as are Brian and Nick Wolfe and those guys are Master Painters.

Just My two cents reguarding pictures.

I think you will do great and covering the issues involved with Safety in Face Painting is an awesome topic. They will be blown away by you.

I'm not overly optimistic about blowing these guys away. My class is chocked full of overly entitled young adults who actually don't appreciate the fact that the teacher is having us read the entire textbook from cover to cover.

I appreciate the generosity you guys are showing me thus far. I will take all I can get.

Jenny, I think your idea is spot on, I could have the pictures dropping on the page starting with a really basic and ending with some phenomenal piece of body art...hmmm.

I thought about contacting Mark and the Wolfe/wonder twins, but I wanted real life (as opposed to larger than life) face painter's input...kind of grass rooty...kwim?

You are welcome to anything in my gallery or on my blog for your speech. And I think I may have some examples of "the early years" before I discovered professional good stuff. (somewhat lame) I'll PM you if I can find something , ahem, *good*.

Speech was the bain of my existance as well, I would feel like I was about to throw up on the first day of school when I had to say my name in front of everyone. Trick... speak as often as you can to get used to it and pretend you are confident and comfortable. It helps.

I don't mind speaking all that much, I'm just tired of people telling me to speak up. My voice isn't soft, but for some reason, when I talk what comes out is only a few frequencies lower than a dog whistle. People just can't hear me unless I strain my voice to talk. I learned how to talk loud in the military, but my family doesn't appreciate it when I bark them out of bed...so I use my "mumble voice" as my husband calls it.

I'm already planning on using my militaristic persona for my speech, but I know some will think I'm just militant about face painting. Oh well...

Thanks for the offer, I will take you up on it.

Kool fact: I just typed all of this with one hand because I'm feeling to lazy to take my chin out of my left hand. i'm amazed at how fast I can type like this. I guess the key to mastering the old hunt and peck is knowing where to hunt and when to peck.

Golly, I'm just a party all by myself!

You're nuts... you can use stuff from my site if you like - most is watermarked but that shouldn't be a problem. If you want higher resolution for anything let me know...

On my site if you click a photo in my gallery, the file size is pretty large, so you could copy some high res stuff for display. No worries here. Copy away!

Good Luck with the speaking!

I think I even have posted some of the 'simple' things I do at 'fast and furious' lines...up to more detailed stuff. Very Happy

Thanks Heather!
The more I do this...the more nervous I'm getting. I'd almost rather have a room full of kids hyped up on sugar to paint than this speech.
