…his Alien movie, this looks fantastic.  Any takers?

Garfield Minus Garfield.

Comics, Take 2

Garfield, I haven’t come back to in appreciation yet.  I still think it’s pretty juvenile.  While I hope my kids find it and love it like I did, I also hope they outgrow it This and tomorrow’s entry do something to Garfield that makes it interesting, much more interesting than it would be on its […]

Peanuts Without the Last Frame

I’ve had three phases of my life in relationship to Peanuts. Elementary School Years, I checked out as many Peanuts books as possible and devoured them Adolescence and Early Adulthood, I didn’t really get the Peanuts and thought they were childish artifact Adulthood, I have a new appreciation for the Peanuts One thing that has […]

This Hit Me of Late

In the Attic by Seamus Heaney 1. Like Jim Hawkins aloft in the crosstrees Of Hispaniola, nothing underneath him But still green water and clean bottom sand, The ship aground, the canted mast far out Above a seafloor where striped fish pass in shoals— And when they’ve passed, the face of Israel Hands That rose […]

I was showing a student this artist’s work today to talk about atmospheric perspective, and it occurred to me that Toby and others might enjoy it.

Lock, Stock and Pickpocket

Another interesting article from the New Yorker.  It’s really amazing how good one can get, almost to the point of it being magical, when you solely focus on one skill for your entire life. And here’s a video of his talent on display:

Let’s Evoke, Not Provoke

As I’ve been sharing things on the blog, I’ve wondered why I’ve kept things unserious after all the pressures, concerns, and nightmares of the past week.  Perhaps I need a place for respite from the typical news flow across the internet.  I felt I’ve needed evocation, rather than provocation. Here’s a series of photos that evokes […]

Just Because I Love It

I have desired to go Where springs not fail, To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail And a few lilies blow. And I have asked to be Where no storms come, Where the green swell is in the havens dumb, And out of the swing of the sea.

On the Subject of 2012…

Another link I found in early 2013, was a series of videos an auteur named Matt Shapiro has put together for the last seven years called The Cinescape.  It’s pretty amazing craftsmanship, and even though none of the films he spliced together are original works, the way he did it is.  It’s masterful and brings […]

You have time for this

If a Tree Falls in the Woods…

I managed to draw J.E.’s attention to the post of a recent image created to mark the anniversary of the Deep Horizon oil spill in the gulf so I thought I’d post the others. I made more than this, but these were the ones I decided to go with. I called the series No Horizon […]

No Horizon: Loggerheads

Here’s the first in a series dedicated to the BP spill. This image was created with ink, oil, and water (and Photoshop). The initial splotch was created, incidentally, in a sketchbook given to me by Toby.  

Input

This is a new image in the TINAW series, one of three digital works I am constructing. Before I took the trouble to post it to my website, I thought I’d get your input.
