Attention Surplus Syndrome
Paper by Fifty Three, iColorama
A couple of months ago I was asked by a friend, Josh, here in Merced, CA to create an iPad drawing for his group’s new CD, We Need to Talk by Fergus. Once I became familiar with the music and lyrics, I ran an idea by Josh. A dialogue and a few revisions ensued. Now that We Need to Talk by Fergus is available on iTunes, I’m pleased to share the image along with a 46-second video below exploring the evolution of the drawing and featuring a snippet of Track #9: Hold On, Let Go.
Big deal! AT&T announced that next week it will bundle satellite TV with its wireless phone service. You’ll recall that I’ve already outlined our plan here at portfoliolongo.com, and it’s what you would expect for the 21st century, for crying out loud!
In case you’ve forgotten, I’ll refresh your memory:
Beginning in February of 2014 our bundle has included:
nitrous oxide (for laughs)!
And get this; we’re moving one week from today, and my Plan allows us to transfer everything at no charge; plus, we get to add an additional utility at no cost for the first 3 years! We’re going with Nutella©, of course!
“Throw Dog” was selected to be among the top 100 by jurors at the Mobile Digital Art & Creativity Summit.
Exhibition opening: Palo Alto Art Center, Aug. 7, 2015, 5:30 to 8 p.m.
I’m honored one of my submissions was selected. I’m planning to attend the opening and stick around for the two-day summit. Hope to see you there!
With only a few exceptions this is one of my “continuous-line” drawings. My hunch is that the screen protector, finger grease, and my cheapo-stylus-nub team up and cause what I’m calling “intra-line outages.” I just may peel off the screen protector that was automatically applied to the new screen that I recently got, when I dropped and cracked my iPad screen. At any rate, I felt like doing one of these continuous-line drawings knowing that I had this linus interruptus phenomenon goin’ on; so, it is what it is.
