Another envelope travels to Ryosuke Cohem to be part of the Braincell project. Soon the 1000th issue will come. It is expected end of this year 2017. Ryosuke has told he will continue the braincells as long as he can. So the collection grows and spreads over the network.
For a good Digital Cause is a new work I made yesterday. Making digital work is something completely different to working with pen and ink on thick paper and finish the drawing of with russian watercolour. The digital grawings os scans might travel the world, but this original work is unique and only can be in one place. Also holding a work in your hand is something else then watching a computerscreen.
When I look back I see I have been drawing for quites some decades now. Since most of the drawings are digitized too, it has become easy to make an overview of the collection. In a new blog I am now publishing an overview where you can search by Title and also by year, so you can see how the works have developed over the years. I know where the influences came from, but you can judge yourself if you like what you see at:
The blog will grow over the years. Not to publish all the drawings, but to show the developement over the years. I noticed that for some years the drawings haven’t been digitized yet, so it will be interesting to change that and add that to the digital world.
A fine card again from Richard Canard who send his cards on a regular basis. This time also mentioning Trashpo.I agree with Richard, we keep on doing Mail-Art without knowing why….. I made the photo’s of his card right outside the Postal Office (actually a copy shop wher PostNL has a place for input and output). The neighbors are an Art-Gallery, and that gives some nice effects to this mail-art card for sure.
Ryosuke Cohen has been doing his Brain Cells since 1985, and this year the 1000th issue is expected. I estimate that I have about 400-500 of his Brain Cells in the TAM Archive, including that very first one also. Today I decided to write him a letter and use the typewriter for that.
Because Ryosuke always chooses an image for including on his Brain Cell I always make sure he has a lot to choose from on the enveloppe. The traditional envelopes are made as I print stamps from the TAM Archive on a regular basis to send the collection back into the network in a printed form.
