This morning I woke up with the inspiration to do paintings based on Ian's New Zealand flower photographs and thinking of Vincent's paintings too. I made some sunflower ATCs last night then found my stash of oil sticks for my art-making and mailing future.
Jon gave me pighed's (Mark Meadow's) book called Pause and Effect about interactive narrative. It reaches back into art history to Giotto and places interaction in relation to the development of vanishing point perspective in terms of visual story-telling. It's a perfect text book for a class in art and technology if I get hired to teach one. After I finish the Vincent and Paul book I'm going to read Pause and Effect.
