A few new VIP’s (Visual Impulse Poetry) were made on the special day 29-2-2016.
In the series “Analog humans Digital Computers, I made a new drawing today that deals with the digital making of drawings. I work with the traditional indian ink and Peterburg water colours, and yet use a scanner to publish the drawings on Internet. Why not go digital all the way?
Well, I must confess I just lake paper, and working with that ink and paint. Also I like it that the indian ink leaces a structure on the paper and that it glances when the lighht shines on it. That vanishes when I scan it and place it on internet. Bits and Bytes are not the same as the analog stuff.
Whenever I get the chance I make some new VIP’s (Visual Impulse Poetry) just to catch the thought that was on my mind. It takes some time to dry for them since they are made with acrylic paint and indian ink. But I like the results…..
If you watch long enough you will find the thought. Maybe you choose another word as I wrote down, but that is all part of these works.
And suddenly there is the time to make a series of new drawings that fit in the theme digital Humans and analog machines. Where the human race is building all these digital connections but forget that we are analog beings.
You can click on the individual drawings and see a larger sample of the drawing. They are all made on thick paper, size A4 (european standard). I use indian ink (from Talens) and russian watercolours (Petersburg), which mix very well together.
I also have a digital portfolio of my works where you can get a broader overview of my work:
As you can see I am very focussed on the digital connetions and what humans want to do. I feel I am in the middle. I work with the traditional tools in writing and drawing, and for a living I train students to implement the newest digital possibilities and make a living out of that.
Hope you enjoy the drawing.
Because of some messages I got in through the IUOMA-platform located at:
I made this new VIP (Visual Impuls Poetry) and published it for others too.
