Being Digital – Tablet PC – exploring a medium

pen

I realised that it is not immediately obvious that the images I do are created digitally. In fact it was not clearly mentioned in my About page till I added it just a day or so ago.

This is a project with minimal parameters – one is to do 1000 in one year, the other is to do them all digitally, which in essence means using my Tablet PC or Palm Treo.

The time frame creates a frame – not unlike the frame around a painting. It is a space within which to explore & see what arises.

Being digital is similar. There is diversity & choice – there is also a clear line.

It is obvious that I am looking over the fence, Yesterday’s post: colligraphy and today I found myself following up on egg tempera mentioned in Katherine Terrell’s post! There is media envy, and you cans see why – that crappy little pen is all I ever use!

I am reading a about peoples work Рand loving that Рmany are also exploring & blogging their creative development, they are material people. I am also keen to find others who are doing what I do, virtual stuff, Tablet PC + Gicl̩e prints. The medium allows diversity & also has its own constraints. If you know of others or you are one, please let me know.

There must be lots of people using the various painting & drawing software… so I guess I am curious also about those who use it to explore their creative journey.

Which brings me to another post… Creativity.
