I miss following artists.

Scrolling through art was so inspiring. I loved watching their work and skills grow. Seeing an amazing new technique or style, studying it, trying it myself. It felt meaningful. Felt like I was able to learn and grow too.

ai, twitter feed algorithms, elon finishing off twitter.

Fuck all of that. Fuck all of this complacency too. We witnessed digital art get fucking torn apart and just swiped up...

Guess I'll just go visit every Art Museum now

#art #noai #rant

Honestly, I hear those arguments mostly from people who can't be bothered to actually do art. People who can't be bothered to invest their time in something as accessible as art but who really crave the same attention artists who refined their work and skill deserve. They want to make art that required no skill and be praised for it.

Shameless encouragement for people to share my and other artists' work, intended as an end-panel for carousels on IG.

There's just so much noise and it's increasingly difficult to rise above it. If you want human souls to create and remain visible you better start smashing that share button whenever you can! 😄

Have a great weekend and keep making stuff!

Photography. A color photo
of a moving train. A moving silver-colored train was photographed in such a way that you can literally see the speed. Blurred contours and the frontal view between two moving carriages reveal a brief glimpse of a man sitting and waiting directly opposite. The street canyons of Chicago can still be seen in the upper part of the picture. A perfect moment for a photographer.
Info: The photographer assures us that the photo is not artificially arranged, but that he himself was surprised by the man in the center of the picture.

Photo. A color photo of a landscape in Iceland with a view of a lighthouse. The photo was taken close to the ground so that the view is over black volcanic rock towards a red square lighthouse on the horizon. The dark cinder has a hilly, round shape with strange little round holes where water collects. The sky above the lighthouse is deep gray, punctuated by a warm shade of red and a small area of yellow sunlight. Magical.

Real artists may be inspired from other art, but it's still our own experience and perception of things we curate and put into shape. AI prompters just tell a machine to create something from a prompt, and no matter how much this prompt is engineered to create what they want, it's never their work. It's a machine's work, a machine trained on the labor of real in-flesh artists who did not consent to become trainers. #noAI

I will never use AI in the form in which tech bros are peddling it. It's absolutely an antithesis to human-made art.

Programs should help artists, not replace art. Even if AI could be 100% original, it would still be uncanny and void of human emotions. Me and the ones perceiving my art would miss the artistic passion and the love of creating behind the art.

So called AI artists do not create, they prompt. They let a machine create from the experience and inspiration of others.

Streetartwall. On the outside of a multi-storey modern building (30 meters high), the 400 square meter portrait wall of an elderly gentleman has been sprayed/painted. The special feature is the triple, overlapping design of the person, both in terms of color and the person's gaze. In versions in the colors yellow, blue, purple, red and turquoise, the movement of this man is depicted in three positions. In bright colors, he can be seen from the right, left and front.
Info: The mural depicts a huge photorealistic portrait of Uwe Dierks († 2020), the longest-serving Hinz&Kunzt vendor and a well-known figure in the city. For 27 years, Uwe Dierks sold the Hamburg street magazine Hinz&Kunzt in the Hamburg city center near the town hall, where he worked passionately as a Hinz&Kunzt vendor. He was always appreciated by his customers for his unwavering optimism.

Well, we've had rather a full weekend. First thing Saturday was pancakes on the patio as @rdm had made butter during the week. Consequently there was buttermilk - and the best use of that is clearly pancakes.

This stood us in good stead for the next bit which was to drive about 40 minutes South for a kiddy birthday party, where we joined the birthday kiddo and friends and family for cake and chatting.

Then it was off to Walyalup for us! We decided to have lunch at Run Amuk which does gourmet hot dogs with gluten free options. So delicious! The hot Easterly Wind (Nundat) at our backs we picnicked on South Beach in the shade. It was delicious food but the hot wind wasn't to our taste so we didn't linger.

We wandered to our hotel, The Hougoumont which has tiny, tiny rooms but great, great staff. And a lovely foyer to chill in and enjoy complimentary coffee whilst waiting for the room to be ready. So I did a couple of drawings out of my comfort zone, again ink straight to paper - and rdm read. Then we flaked in our room for a bit before dinner at Benny's (recommended) and icecream at Kuld (even more recommended).

Then it was time for the drone show which was great! A giant crocodile invaded from the North, and this came to the attention of one of our local guardian Wargul , the great rainbow serpent so there was a bit of a conflict in the sky.

This show is going to be shown in Attadale and Wadjemap, so if you're interested in seeing it the details are

The first 5 minutes I took - here, but beware there is sound!

After that Rob set up the Dwarf II and we chilled for a bit. I did some astrophotography with my phone which will be quite nice after some postprocessing so watch this space.

Then it was back to the hotel for a bit of a watch - Marcia Hynes introing Rage and then sleepy bos.

The next day we woke and enjoyed our complimentary gf breakfast in the foyer, and then checked out as we had stuff to do at home and lunch with friends to attend.

We saw their travel photos of Queensland, chatted and showed the video from the drone show, and then went home by way of JB HiFi (I want my sister to try the astrophotography with the phone thing, so I'm buying her a tripod for her phone to encourage her) and watched Taskmaster with Mum over coffee and chocolate gingerbread.

A medieval-looking town, in the centre is a muscular man only wearing loose knee-length pants. He stands solidly with his feet apart, balancing with his left arm and his right hand raised high supporting a woman.

She stands on right leg held up by the man. Her body is stretched horizontally, left leg out behind, head forward, arms swept back for balance. Her long hair is tied up in braids and she wears a short skirt and loose top.

A few of the townsfolk stand around watching.

Okay let's see if the people are happy! The brief was something feline, ships cats, dog, yellow and bonus points for Andre Norton.

Thank you all for joining me in the pensive journey of October and for the fun prompts!

Can you create a title that might fit this image and sound like an Andre Norton novel?

You can see I got two new Kaweco's. The purple one has got Diamine's Autumn Oak. The teal one has Diamine's Matador. The dark blue LAMY has LAMY yellow but I couldn't get it clean enough from the previous colour in it, so it's the yellow greeny colour the canine creature is mostly drawn in. The teal LAMY was accidentally photoed. Sorry. The Conklin has Robert Oster's Orange Red or is it Red Orange? The bright yellow was a Marbig brush marker which I forgot to photo.

Art Ink In October No.30

As requested by our good @Lemonandpeach we have a dragon drinking a cup of tea. Thank you for the great suggestion! I had a delivery arrive today, so it's the first time I've tried the Kaweco Student Transparent. I filled it with J Herbin Vert Reseda and I must say it's the smooooooooothest draw I can remember. I used to draw with Rotring Art pens in the 80's and 90's and I did some great drawings with them, but then kind of moved on to other pens. Always thought I'd go back to them some time BUT what, they discontinued them, I was shocked to have found out recently. A couple of years ago!
So when I saw this green one (in my day they were black.) on Ebay I grabbed it for a bit of post modern nostalgia. It's got a blacky blue cartridge it came with.

Not pictured is yesterday's Twisbi that did the tongue.

The Floating False Phoenix Firefly is native to the foothills across the southern continent of its low-gravity planet Heshick.

It feeds on nectar and is the subject of many scholarly debates as to whether it's a bird or a bee or a moth. Unlike the Hummingbird moth of Earth, however, science is very vague on whether it is any of them.

Its fiery coloured plumage may deter predators who rely on hydrogen sacs to get their lift, but this is only a theorem.

Feathers and butterfly wings line up. 100 m2 were covered with foil for this purpose and now stand in a commercial area.
Info: The Belgian Army plane was installed in a traffic circle in 2012 in honor of the former military base. The original installation was financed by a supermarket owner.
