When Michaelangelo hand-painted the Sistine
chapel, he did not have any idea that one day, the painting
that took him years to make, can be made in a matter of
hours, maybe days. With just a simple push of the buttons,
a few shove at the mouse and a vivid and wide imagination.
And of course, not to mention, the use of highly-modernized
machines and gadgetries. If only he had known that one day,
machines will be able to do things that human can, then
maybe, he would just had sat there and let it do his paintings.
But then again, we would not have pioneers
of these modern machines if not for the past creations that
have inspired them. Their works served as the solid foundation
for what people are capable today.
Graphics designs of the future may have
originated from the earliest works of the past. Who would
have thought that putting art works in designs would attract
more attention than those with none? Graphics made use of
artists touch to be able to put ideas into prints. They
are the one who thought of the concepts that are put into
action with the help of machines that make their tasks a
lot easier and faster. Things that were once thought to
be impossible are made possible, which makes one wonder
about the limitations of human minds.
If artists in the past had only known what
machines can do today, then they would not have spent too
much time thinking of how they can put their thoughts into
print or picture. They would not have exhausted their talents
into something that are likely to be lost once they no longer
exist. They would have envied the people of today that are
being spoon-fed by technologies that are easily accessible
When prints were just symbols, people tried
deciphering them to get its significance. Soon it was put
into plain writing. Understanding them would mean having
to go through its contents first and later figuring its
meaning. With the innovation of pictures put into prints,
people just have to look at the graphics and they would
know even without reading the writing what it is about.
With graphics design having its place in
the present world today, people are now assured of work
of arts that are easily accessible and reliable. Everyone
can become modern Michaelangelos without having to climb
up stairs and use a paintbrush.
