Green Bay Packer’s Memorabilia – Sports Art

Green Bay Packer memorabilia is a must have for any sports enthusiast! The Green Bay Packers have one of the most storied histories in all of NFL. A mere mention of the Packers brings up images of die hard fans and sport legends playing infamous games that fans still love to reminisce about today. I think it would be rare occasion indeed to go somewhere in WI and not see the famous “G” logo on clothing, dangling from purses or key chains, even license plates bear the green and gold!

Packers Art is Everywhere!

Sports bars and eateries are common place in every corner of America now and it is not unusual to see Green Bay Packers art on the walls of these establishments even outside of WI. I remember on a trip to CA our family was in the LA airport lounge getting a soda and seeing a Ray Nitschke fine art print by sports artist Andy Goralski on the wall! Visit sports bars and restaurants from FL to CA and you will find Packers fans in every state. The far reaching effects of this beloved team on the general public is a testament to the rich history and respect fans have for their beloved Green Bay Packers.

Investing in Sports Art

Sports art has become big business for many collectors. The secondary market can produce a nice return on sports art. Be it from the athletes signature alone or a combination of the artist and athlete signature, profits from reselling at the right time can be quite lucrative. Naturally a print that has sold out commands the higher prices. I know one man that bought a few extra prints, hung on to them for awhile and resold them on the secondary market and used that money to take his family on a nice vacation!

WI Sports Artists

Andy Goralski is probably one the most well known Packers sports artists. His works are seen across the state and across the nation! He has painted some of the Green Bay Packers greats including Vince Lombardi, Brett Farve, Reggie White, Ray Nitschke, LeRoy Butler, Bart Starr, Robert Brooks and now his new piece titled ‘From Leather to Legendary’. You may have seen Andy Goralski as a featured artist on Channel 10/36 auction over the years. If you attend any fund raisers you will likely have seen his works at those auctions as well. Sports artist Andy Goralski has recently released his new painting of the original Acme Packers complete with their leatherhead helmets and the legendary newly renovated Lambeau Field directly behind Curly Lambeau’s Acme Packer’s. Check out his new print at

  1. kinoo – “yesterday”
  2. kyoo – “today”
  3. ashita – “tomorrow”

*Kinoo, ashita, and kyoo have irregular readings. We call this jukujikun or “idiomatic reading.” It means that the Kanji we use in jukujikun were chosen based on the meaning of the characters, not the Chinese readings of individual characters.


watashi-tachi “we, us”


Tachi is a suffix that we attach to personal pronouns or human proper nouns that makes the preceding noun plural.

Singular (“English”) / Plural (“English”)

watashi (“I”) / watashi-tachi ( “we”)

anata (“you”) (singular) / anata-tachi (“you”) (plural)

kodomo (“kid, child”) / kodomo-tachi (“children”)

If You Think Japanese Is Vague, Learn Why You Are Wrong

Everybody says the Japanese language is vague and imprecise. Japanese say yes when they mean no, or refuse to give their opinion clearly and unequivocally, it is often said. But this is wrong. Japanese is actually an incredibly precise language.

No Subject Stated Doesn’t Mean No Subject

It is true that Japanese don’t like to flatly refuse; Japanese might say something is “difficult” when what they mean is “cannot be done;” and Japanese sentences often omit the subject. For example:

Kinou, shiryou-o itadakimashita.

Yesterday I (or we) received the documents.

The subject of the sentence I (or we) is unstated, but understood to Japanese by the verb choice itadakimashita. That verb is a more polite form of moraimashita, which means to receive, but more than politeness, itadakimashita expresses kenjou, or humility, toward the listener. As such, it can be used only when you (the speaker) or your group are receiving something, never when talking about someone else.

Hai in Japanese Does Not Mean Yes

It is also true that hai (yes) does not always mean yes. When learning Japanese, a better translation to memorize is “I have heard what you said.” In fact, a Japanese accepting an invitation won’t say hai at all:

A: Ashita-no paatii, ikimasen ka?

Are you going to the party tomorrow?

B: Ikimasu.

Yes (literally, “go”).

From this linguistic culture, we Westerners like to think of Japanese as a vague, inscrutable language.

Japanese subjects may be omitted, but that doesn’t mean the subject doesn’t exist. Word choices and sentence structure allow a Japanese speaker to omit the subject without any loss of understanding.

While it is true that Japanese, for a variety of historical reasons, tend to speak indirectly, it isn’t true that they speak imprecisely. The Japanese could not have built a world-leading economy with an imprecise language. On the contrary, Japanese is a language of fine precision.

Japanese Is Super-Precise

In English, the same word often has many different meanings. Even the word “Japanese” can refer to Japanese people or the Japanese language. Most of the time in Japanese, one word has one meaning.

For example, the English word “factor” (meaning element or cause) can be translated as youin or youso, but these two Japanese words do not have the same meaning. youin means “factor contributing as a cause,” whereas youso means “element in something’s makeup.” English “factor” includes at least those two meanings, related but not the same. The separate Japanese words are more precise equivalents. As you learn Japanese, use English translations as a guide, but it is important to understand how the original Japanese word is used as well.

Japanese Onomatopoeia Is Unique

Japanese onomatopoeia (gitaigo) is an intricate system of conveying the nuance of emotion or situation, and has no equivalent in English. A pebble tumbling down the street rolls along “korokoro,” while a boulder cascading down a mountain side’s movement is “gorogoro.” These words alone convey an image that fits each situation precisely and succinctly, whereas the English equivalent requires at least a phrase or two.

Hundreds of years ago Japanese incorporated thousands of kango (words of Chinese origin), and, more recently, imported thousands of mostly English words as gairaigo (foreign loan words).

The Beauty of Learning Japanese

These foreign-origin words, coupled with the native language itself, give the Japanese language a richly nuanced vocabulary. One beauty in learning Japanese is gaining an appreciation for the subtleties of the Japanese vocabulary and the Japanese culture.

Slam Dunk Manga Profile For Tatsuhiko Aota

Tatsuhiko Aota happens to be the team captain of the Shohoku judo team in the Slam Dunk Manga. He is a childhood crony of the Akagi siblings. One of the siblings was Takenori and they constantly argue at a young age as to which sport was better – judo or basketball.

And even up to the present, both still continues to argue as to which team will be declared the National Champion. Once in the life of Tatsuhiko, he offered Sakuragi to participate in the judo team because he found the latter’s fighting skills impressive. Since he was having a hard time luring him to join, he bribed Sakuragi with some photos of Haruko.

Slam Dunk Manga Character Profile:

  • Name: Tatsuhiko Aota
  • Year: Third
  • Voice Actor: Hideyuki Umezu
  • Team: Shohoku Judo Club
  • But still, he refused to because as a reason he simply loves basketball and not judo. But in reality, it is because he would be closer to her crush Haruko if he plays basketball. Still, Tatsuhiko is not going to give up easily and once in a while he continued to try to lure him.

    But despite his inability to physically force Sakuragi into joining the judo team, Tatsuhiko has left nothing to prove on his judo skills as he had already proven that. And as a testament, he was the only sole member of the team to qualify for the National Championships.

    However, he is a delinquent student and has to beg for a chance to retake the exam after failing in the first take. His crush with Haruko has been constant since they were young in the Slam Dunk Manga.

    Koi Fish Tattoos – Koi Fish Art Ideas

    Tattoos are often done by people in order to put a symbol of good luck on their bodies. While many people put good luck tattoos out of superstition, there are many who get them for the attractiveness and style value. Some people get tattoos from a symbolic point of view. Dolphins and many other fishes are popular tattoo ideas for people since they are considered good luck charms in many religions. Wrists, ankles, neck and other areas are prone to such fish tattoos and many people even prefer to get full size fish tattoos on their backs where even the marine habitat or waves of water is inked onto the flesh. The Japanese Koi fish is one of the most popular tattoo designs involving fishes.

    The Koi fish which is popular because of its colourful appearance which looks amazing when depicted in body art is a Japanese fish which has been a symbol of tenacity and good luck in Japanese mythology for ages. Even the Chinese use the Koi to denote the same traits as the Japanese. In addition, the Koi can stand for a symbol of romantic love and affection which is also another reason for its popularity. The Koi is a fish which commands a certain personality of its own which when drawn on a person’s body transfers the same trait to the holder of the tattoo. This is a reason for the Koi tattoo’s need for enough space in order to depict the true meaning behind the artwork.

    The fish Koi is a symbol of determination and struggle which has been the way that the Japanese have looked at the fish for years. The fish has a peculiar quality of trying to swim upstream which gives it the aura of determination and struggle as mentioned above. People often use the Koi fish to denote the struggles in their own lives which seem like an effort to swim up stream in a flowing river. The same traits are interpreted by the Buddhist communities as fearlessness and rigour which is another way to depict these qualities in a person through the art work on his or her body. The Koi fish has gained popularity because of these deep meanings.

    A huge advantage of getting a Koi tattoo done is that it provides ample space for the use of different colours. A person going for a group of Koi fish on his or her body may choose to have each fish in a different colour which brings out the beauty and true essence of the fish and the tattoo itself.

    What Is Industrial Photography and Why Is It Important?

    What is Industrial photography and why is it important?

    In the world of business today photography is worth a million words. Everything from websites to brochures and television advertisements rely on high quality pictures to get a business’s message across. Industrial photography is a specialized field of photography which makes it possible for businesses to communicate with customers and other businesses showcasing their industrial process, machines, and techniques. The photographs not only need to be shiny with balanced hues and highlights but also need to effectively communicate the meaning of the photograph in less in a second. This is why these types of photographs require a skilled photographer with years of experience photographing industrial machinery, locations and manufacturing processes.

    The importance of an industrial photographer

    An expert will be able to take photographs which are interesting and showcase everything you want from every angle leaving no questions in the mind of the person looking at the photograph. He or she should have an eye for detail and be able to generate interest out of everyday / normal machines. This means that the photos need to be more like a piece of art rather than just specialized images. For instance an expert will photograph an everyday, regular and ordinary conveyor belt in a way which would generate interest by highlighting specific areas and blurring out the background. These images when laid out on commercial advertising material like a brochure or a PowerPoint presentation will tell the story of the process.

    Enhancing your online image

    Apart from physical posters and brochures the right images will enhance your professional image online. A website displaying top notch photographs of every industrial process the business is involved in will add credibility and interest in the mind of the viewer. This in turn will help a business earn a lead, sell a product or be able to improve its image as a business online. Photography of machines and processes for each medium i.e. internet and print is slightly different. It requires a slightly different approach but an expert with years of experience will know which approach to take in order to ensure that the pictures communicate exactly what the business needs to get the desired result. This is why it is important for business owners to hire photographers who have experience and with a diverse portfolio.

    Hiring an industrial photographer

    Industrial photography is serious business and so you shouldn’t leave it to an amateur to do the job and expect great results. Always look through a photographer’s portfolio to make sure that he has taken great photographs in the past. Ideally, he should have a diverse portfolio which would then mean that he is able to take photographs for both your website and print campaign.

    Selling Online? The True Definition of a Collectible

    Established Collecting Patterns

    Seasoned antiques and collectibles dealers may find the concept to be ‘old hat,’ but the truth is, the more popular and desirable a thing is, the greater likelihood it will sell quickly. That truth is not always readily apparent to those who are new to this rather specialized sales arena, however. So the ‘True Collectible’ guideline is an attempt to convey the principle.

    The online selling field may seem infinite in scope, too, with millions of potential customers worldwide. But, success in selling collectibles on the Web is gained in much the same way as it is in the physical world, by knowing buyers’ needs and meeting them. Success can depend to a great degree on whether or not you are offering collectible properties able to meet at least one of these three key commercial elements:

    1. Not easily obtainable locally.

    2. Wide appeal due to a current surge in popularity or because an item is able to ‘cross over’ collecting boundaries.

    3. Competitive pricing.

    Consider the Market’s Opinion of the Item

    Say that whenever she can, your neighbor’s Great Aunt Mable clips articles about David Hasslehoff out of current periodicals. She collects these by pasting them into a scrapbook. Is it likely that multitudes of other people share her desire to do this? If she were to try to sell said scrapbook full of modern clippings online, would very many buyers react favorably and vie to buy it? While her scrapbook may be factually described as ‘rare’ or a ‘one of a kind’ item, who else but Mable might care to own it, even so? How can such an item be assigned sure status as a ‘true collectible’ with an established and recognizable monetary value?

    Because collectors often look upon their collections as having investment potential, collectibility always contains monetary implications. So, manufacturers often hype the ‘limited’ nature of new items they have to sell, or they might place a public declaration on the item itself, to imply sure and certain future value.

    But, neither limiting production, nor printing the words ‘Fine Collectible’ on either an item or the box in which it came, can ensure that future collectors will want items more than others do today – or that they will be willing to pay more to own them. Great Aunt Mable’s scrapbook illustrates that simply knowing someone, somewhere, collects a particular thing can’t automatically grant that thing status as a ‘true’ collectible. Maybe 50 or 100 years in the future Mabel’s scrapbook will be all the rage. Today, and probably for the near foreseeable future, others will judge it to be just a scrapbook full of common clippings.

    Only the market at large can decide which things are highly desirable or more valuable than other objects. The individual collector or manufacturer has little actual ability to impact secondary market choices in regard to preferential items.

    So, What is a ‘True Collectible?’

    Basically a True Collectible is an item for which a reasonably well numbered audience of avid buyers can be expected to exist and for which a pattern of recognizable trade on the secondary market has been established.

    If that statement doesn’t clarify the notion sufficiently, it may help to mentally replace the word ‘true’ with the word ‘legitimate.’ A 20-year-old sock previously owned by a musician would not be a ‘legitimate’ collectible. But a sock of the same age, and the unimpeachable provenance of having been on the right foot of Elvis Presley while he performed ‘Jail House Rock’ on the Ed Sullivan show, would be legitimate, since trade in Elvis memorabilia is a well established collecting niche.

    To ‘collect’ means to accumulate as a hobby or for study. A ‘collection’ is a group of objects or works to be seen or kept together. But a ‘collectible’ is a group or class of objects sought by collectors. Note that the definition is expressed in plural form, ‘by collectors.’

    When something can stand the ‘test of time’ and even though an older item (or perhaps because it is older) people seek it, then offering it to collectors on the open market at an attractive price can logically be expected to result in its sale. If something very new cannot yet be found in a printed price guide book, printed for collectors, then a sale will likely be slow or non-existent, or the price at which it must be sold in order to move it out of inventory will not create an appreciable profit.

    Confirming whether a piece has been mentioned in a printed price guide book as required by site listing requirements can help to ensure it meets the designation of a ‘true collectible,’ as defined above. If determinations like this are always made before listing newer items, shoppers are likely to begin to find a wider variety of the kinds of things they are actively seeking. And a gradual increase in sales may very well be the welcomed result.

    The National Gallery in Cardiff

    If you are wondering what you can do in Cardiff on a rainy day, there are plenty of indoor activities. You could go to an art museum, the best choice being the National Gallery of Cardiff.

    Cardiff is the city capital of Wales and it is a charming city with fascinating landscapes and a great personality. Cardiff, which is Caerdydd in Welsh, is Europe’s youngest capital and an inspiring place to visit. If you are wondering what you can do in Cardiff on a rainy day, there are plenty of indoor activities. You could go to an art museum, the best choice being the National Gallery of Cardiff. The National Gallery, or in Welsh Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Caerdydd, is definitely a place where you can see genuine paintings and works of art in a beautiful setting. The National Gallery in Cardiff’s collection is impressive and you can find great names from the history of art on display.

    The National Gallery is a component of the Amgueddfa Cymru, which is the National Museum of Wales.

    One very special feature of this museum is that it hosts the national collection of fine and applied art, so it a great place to go and learn about the history of applied art in Wales. The collection contains pieces from as early as 16th century. The museum has international collections from Europe and Britain as well as art from other cultures from all around the globe.

    The National Gallery in Cardiff was opened for the public in 1907. However, it reunites the collection from the past Cardiff Museum of Natural History, Arts and Antiques, which originated in 1882. Before its current location, which was established in 1920, the National Gallery was placed in the Cardiff Law Courts, occupying 11 police cells and a corridor. The National Museum in Cardiff contains 15 art galleries that comprise many pieces of art, which are the witnesses of the last 500 years of history in Wales and the whole of Europe as well.

    The collection of art is huge and new pieces are acquired on a regular basis. This is made possible by the Derek Williams Trust. There are permanent exhibits as well as temporary ones that attract millions of visitors each year. The temporary exhibitions are partly from the collection of the National Museum of Wales and partly host touring exhibitions.

    The National Gallery in Cardiff also contains the Prints and Drawings Study Room, where those interested can see over 28,000 selected works on paper. Within the institution, there are also three conservation studios that take care of the damaged pieces and re-condition them or prevent them from decay. The National Gallery in Cardiff has a framing workshop as well. Here, the frames for the paintings are made ready for display, so that they look impeccable for visitors.

    The Welsh landscape has been a genuine source of inspiration for many artists, and Wales has been the home for many talented artists and art collectors. Some of the greatest collections are presently in the possession of the National Museum in Cardiff. One of the notable collectors whose collection is at the Museum is Sir Williams Wynn, who used to order paintings, pieces of furniture and silver items from the top artists from the 18th century. Sir Williams Wynn used to be known as the Welsh Medici due to his generous contributions in the artistic scene. Therefore, an impressive portrait of Sir Williams in Rome is featured in the permanent collection.

    The most numerous collection present in the National Museum in Cardiff belonged to the sisters Gwendoline and Margaret Davies. They have gathered notable sculptures and paintings of French artists such as August Rodin, Honore Daumier, Jean Francois Millet, Claude Monet with his Waterlillies, Pierre Auguste Renoir with his The Parisienne and Cézanne. The sisters’ collection also includes a Van Gogh, namely the Rain at Auvers, which was finalized in Van Gogh’s last year of life.

    Other collectors who have contributed to the present compilation of art at the Museum were Wilfred Seymour De Winton with his precious porcelain pieces from Europe as well as Ernest Morton Nance, who was a ceramics fan.

    The present collection of the National Gallery in Cardiff contains pre-18th century paintings and it records the cultural development of art up till the present time.

    The pre-18th century collection includes works by Poussin and Jan van de Chappelle. The Renaissance is represented in this collection by Palma the Elder, Amico Aspertini and Sandro Botticelli.

    There are also famous portraits of Oliver Cromwell and Katherine of Berain.

    The famous Paul Rubens has four huge cartoons in this Gallery.

    Other illustrious Welsh artists include Richard Wilson, with his lovely landscapes, and Thomas Jones. John Gibson also has a place in the gallery, as well as Augustus John and Gwen John. David Jones is sometimes put out on display, however extra care must be taken with his work, as it was done on paper. Today’s Welsh painting scene is represented by Sir Kyffin Williams.

    The 20th century art at the National Gallery in Cardiff comprises sculptures by Jacob Epstein and Eric Gill as well as paintings by Stanley Spencer, L. S. Lowry and the expressionist Oskar Kokoschka.

    The contemporary art is also on permanent display. You can admire Sigmund Freud’s grandson Lucian Freud’s work, together with the unique style of Francis Bacon. There are paintings of Frank Auerbach, as well as installations by Rachel Whiteread. These artists are presented on rotational display, due to the fact that the collection is much too large.

    The National Gallery in Cardiff wants to display and collect the works of Welsh artists, past as well as present. The National Gallery in Cardiff intends to give a full account on the cultural background of Wales and to situate it in European cultural scenery.

    The National Gallery in Cardiff is proud to have their present collection and will welcome you with various pieces of art that will amaze and enchant. The Gallery will make sure you will enjoy and understand all the art displayed. You can book a guided tour or equally experience art on your own.

    How to Purchase Original Paintings And Other Fine Art Online

    Original paintings can dramatically transform your home and office into a place of welcome, intrigue, or even surprise. Paintings that reflect your own personal sense of style can introduce unique beauty, culture, and comfort into the rooms in which you live your life.

    In the past, it was typically necessary for a customer to visit numerous brick-and-mortar galleries to find a style and artist that resonated with that buyer’s needs and preferences. Often, the cost of such gallery-represented original paintings proves prohibitive for prospective purchasers.

    Today, with the explosive growth of Internet sales, it is easy to comparison-shop to determine preferred styles, preferred artists, and to find favorite original paintings. Customers can more easily discover tremendous new and up-and-coming artists, who may or may not yet enjoy traditional gallery representation. The Internet option greatly broadens a customer’s choices.

    Perhaps best of all, the Internet has helped make original fine art and paintings financially accessible to most homeowners, employers, apartment-dwellers, and even college students, who can now enjoy purchasing exceptional original paintings — often by undiscovered artisans — at wonderfully affordable prices.

    Novica hosts what may be the largest online gallery of original paintings in the world. Novica features thousands of original and limited-edition oil paintings, acrylic paintings, mixed-media paintings, and original photography by hundreds of well-known and unknown artists in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

    A Google-search for “original paintings” likewise leads to more than a million website links to online galleries and personal home pages for countless famous and undiscovered fine artists around the globe.

    Focusing on Novica’s paintings, for example, visitors easily navigate by style, subject, or region, and can also search by individual artist. Each artist’s biography and photograph is provided, along with high-quality images of the artist’s available paintings, and extensive descriptions, pricing, dimensions, and compositional information about each work of art. Customer reviews of Novica’s participating artists provide valuable feedback, often helping new collectors make a final decision on a particular artist.

    Whether the collector (or prospective collector) enjoys abstract, impressionist, cubist, realist, surrealist, modern, pop art, folk art, or paintings featuring a particular subject or medium, he or she can quickly and easily get a sense of what is available — and at what prices — by searching online.

    For many shoppers, brick-and-mortar galleries remain the preferred place to purchase original fine art, making it possible to view favorite choices in person, before selecting a particular work.

    For the brave and the bold, however, and for those who crave a broader selection and greater pricing options, today there is no place like the Internet (particularly when dealing with reputable, specialized websites) to discover and purchase exciting original art.
