Discussion: Orienteering Art
in: Orienteering; Off-Course;
Well, you see loads of paintings of climbers, walkers even mountain bikers, but so far I haven't found any paintings of orienteers! Has anyone seen any? (I'm doing an art project based around outdoor activities.)
I have won a couple of arty prizes in orienteering races.
I don't really know what it is called, but you know the kind of icons they have in church windows? In San Bernadino, Switzerland, I got a fancy glass plate made in the same style, and the icon was the relief of an orienteering flag.
In Norway, drawings like this are quite common as well. The artist's name is Sturla Kaasa:
Really Bad Orienteering Pop Art?
A few years old - I've moved on from this now
leepback, where did you get that gear for Mapgirl to pose in - she doesn't usually go that extreme at orienteering events (though there was a wedding at Tomago ...)
mapgirl's gear wasn't a problem...I had to squeeze into that robot costume.
I was thinking more 'fine art' but these certainly provided some amusement! :)
A&E Enterprises ,USA, has some artwork done by Karen Robinson.
And PROFI (Thomas Hagler) from SUI has done hundreds of O cartoons.
Uh oh Erin, looks like that warrior princess is running off with your partner
. DANGER, DANGER!!
OK, help me out here. What is that thing? It gets around, apparently.
From the Lost In Space Wiki page
The Robot: The Robot is a Model B-9, Class M-3 General Utility Non-Theorizing Environmental Control Robot, which had no given name (Harris once jokingly suggested the robot be named "Clawed"). Although a machine endowed with superhuman strength and futuristic weaponry, he often displayed human characteristics such as laughter (usually at Smith, thus provoking the latter's rage), sadness, and mockery. The Robot was designed by Robert Kinoshita (whose other cybernetic claim to fame is as the designer of Forbidden Planet's Robby the Robot) and was performed by Bob May in a prop costume built by Bob Stewart. The voice was dubbed by Dick Tufeld, who was also the series' narrator.
Non-Theorizing Mockery was its best attribute. :)
I see. Well, I agree that Non-Theorizing Mockery is a great attribute. There are obvious applications to Balter here...
Part of this description even matches Balter to a degree:
Although a machine endowed with superhuman strength and futuristic weaponry, he often displayed human characteristics such as laughter, sadness, and mockery.
You know, I've never seen him sad. Maybe he just hides it well.
Weaponry that is back to the future, perhaps. His primary weapon systems are mostly primordial.
Primordial, but effective..."Don't point that thing at me!"
What about the maps themselves? I look at some of these O maps and I think they are beautiful. Many of the ones from the Greater Vancouver Orienteering Club have a very crisp, elegant style.
I've got a couple of art items to contribute if someone can tell me how to upload them in a post
i drew this of krystal neumann, aka Krickle, from the aus orienteer mag cover
it makes me laugh and i hope ive embarrassed her .
I have a James Brown 'O' print in my livingroom I am sure he has done a good number of O peices.
Where can you buy the James Brown Art? That is awesome
