Artwork by Cory Scott

Cory Scott is an artist from Canada, who has now set up shop in Sydney, Australia. I love this rendering of Sydney Opera House. It’s always great to see a familiar object, or structure, from a different perspective, or through the eyes of someone else.

The software application as an artist, and an artist’s representative

Wednesday, 26 April, 2017

While artists’ representatives may fear for their jobs as digital technologies and artificial intelligence ascend, I’d have thought artists themselves would be quite safe.

It looks like I was wrong. Here’s news about a software application, a kind of robot I guess you could say, that creates an artwork, and then attempts to sell it.

Take another little piece of the internet away, FFFFOUND! to close

Monday, 24 April, 2017

Ten years after opening for business, image sharing website FFFFOUND! will be closing on 8 May.

In the early days, membership was highly coveted, and by invitation only. Some design forums ran threads whereby members would send an invitation to someone hoping to join FFFFOUND!, so long as they later extended an invitation to someone else who wanted to join.

While founder Yugo Nakamura offered no reason for the closure, some people are blaming Tumblr for the demise of FFFFOUND!.

Ever feel compelled to answer a question, because, well, you think you might be running out of time to supple an answer, or say something?

That’s called a tight answer deadline, and the practice has Sydney based artist and illustrator Joi Murugavell wondering if it’s a good idea, considering we’re likely being economical with the truth, in such situations.

That just might be one deadline we need to start missing more often.
