Emergence, Art Exhibit, Contemporary and Humanistic Artists Association (CHAA), November 30, 2022 to January 8, 2023, Merced Multicultural Arts Center, Merced, CA.
Digital Renderings: This 4 minute 37 second video consists of series of digital images, animations, and time-lapse videos that I have created on an iPad while living in Merced, CA from 2014 to 2022. Displayed in this video is a collection of digital-art expressions whose meaning requires motion for its significance to emerge. These expressions include: Miss the Basket; Hannah Arendt; Turquoise; Love Letter; Owl’s Wide Open; Jorma; Paint Swatches; Strategic Vision; Outhouse Bird; Abelike; Heavy Heart; Birdie Wine; Barber Pole; Pucker Danny; Old Man Face; Sí, se puede; Beginnings; Gyro; Lead Guitar; Bald Mitt; Bernie; Sphere Spade; Sniff Sniff; The Pundant; Whirling Skeleton; Hydrospurt; and Selfie.
We left Merced, CA at 9 am, and by 12:30 we were seated at the Fish Gaucho bar in Paso Robles, CA for lunch. Within an hour we were seated on our balcony at the Shoreline Inn in Cayucos, CA. Annyth snapped this photo just as I said, I wonder if there is a drone-delivery margarita service; see the video below.
That look! Listen to what I thought he was hearing in his head. Go ahead, click on it.
I revisited a digital painting I did of my dad in 2016, a post of which you can see here. I made some structural adjustments in Procreate and videotaped the reduction of an effect I had added in iColorama. It was a Fathers Day urge. Here’s how it came out:
Professor Edward M. Greb, June 16, 1933 ~ January 18, 2021 (age 87)
See the Sketch Club stats:
I got to spend an additional 33 minutes on my iPad in Sketch Club with Dr. Greb this Spring morning. He played quite an influential role in my personal growth and early professional development. His Introduction to Anthropology course there at Washington & Jefferson College was my introduction to anthropology in real life. In his syllabus he quoted Don Quijote de La Mancha, which I was reading in Spanish for the first time that same semester. He gracefully escorted me into the early stages of adulthood.
The idea behind this quickly done, simple animation – done in Procreate – came from a series of tweets by Jared Yates Sexton, see the series here: (yea, click here.)
Bumped into another amazing guitarist, Lucas Imbiriba. I snuck a little screen shot – as a reference photo for a Sketch Club painting on my iPad – taken from the YouTube video below in which he plays Malagueña. He has other astonishing videos. The fire extinguisher? That’s my idea. I hope he keeps one handy for his fingers.
