This is not a rant against technology. Without technology you wouldn't be reading this at all.
Sometimes, it is simply a matter of turning off the technology and going old school. Pencil, paper those antique tools of making our mark. Just as there is a thrill using new technology, there is also a thrill in the discovering the old technology. There is a certain visceral pleasure in the tactile and somewhat messy materials of original art.
I come away from my studio with hands that are stained with the materials of my art. I am physically marked as an art maker.
I feel that we are living in a time of transition. And I am certainly happy to use technology to publish my work. I scan in Victorian lithographs, random newspaper clippings, and antique marbleized papers.
Modern technology can be a tool, or a trap. May all your choices be creative ones.
