still life


Update: The inflated admission price for the movie Coraline included a pair of 3D glasses. I kept them in case I want to go to another 3D movie (even though it won't shave the price--it's just less landfill material to be carrying around). A friend sent me a link to an artist doing landscapes and figures in Microsoft Paint. I hadn't done a Paint drawing in a while so I put the 3D glasses down on my scanner as a still life set up. When this drawing is shrunk to about a third its size it looks photographic. Hand skill is sort of archaic and pointless and doubly so if you work in a medium where everyone assumes that cyber tricks are employed. Nevertheless a doomed quest is preferable to writing about other people's more conservative art at this point, ha ha. So, glasses on scanner.
