learn to draw in a flash?

2 interpretations: (learn to draw) in a flash OR learn to (draw in a flash)

given the 'accelerated courses' i think it means the first one. but the ad idea is suggestive of the 2nd.

You're right... but I think it's one of those "loosey goosey" advertising metaphors that's acceptable. A conceptual pun, if you will.

This reminded me the similar ad of Fayda published a few years ago, about a photography workshop :/ Unfortunately the idea is the same and Fayda's work was another award-winning work in Turkey. Maybe it was the same workshop and this is its Flash workshop version, i don't remember...

everartz: You know how when you use the flash on your camera, and you get those dumb pictures of peoples' eyes half closed, or looking drunk? This is that picture - except instead of a camera, the drawing was done so quickly that the subjects were "captured" at yet another uncomfortable moment. Cute idea, but if it make people question it, then it's not perfect.

1. does "a flash" mean quickly, as in the artist drew this so fast that he caught the subjects with their eyes closed?
or 2. does "a flash" have a literal meaning, and the people are blinking from a flash of light?
neither options really make any sense to me anyway

What is this Ad offering? Confused.

I wanted to love this, but the first post says it all. There's a direct conflict of messages. If this ad were for a speed-drawing course, this would be great. Too bad.

I feel dumb explaining.

It's like two people getting their picture taken.
So you can draw portraits so fast that you capture the models while they're blinking.

Its a pretty ingenious idea.

^^ "I feel dumb explaining."

*No need for stupid, nieve comments like that. Go post at MySpace if you need to belittle people"
...
And BTW... The ad does not specify directly that it's a software that draws, or camera or whatever.. That is why I suggested that it's a bit confusing.
