Join me this Saturday, April 21st, along with 50 other Vancouver artists. Buy a 5-pack of cards, then trade them with everyone else in the room for the ones you want. ~Luc
The creators of Hot One Inch Action present CARDED! a one-night only show of art reproduced on trading cards. The work of 50 artists is presented on trading cards and made available for art lovers to collect and trade. These 2.5″x3.5″ cards are displayed on the gallery wall and the audience is offered the opportunity to buy random cards in mixed packs of five for $5. Want a specific card? Get into some fast paced trading action with the people around you. How bad do you want that card!?
In this charming series of drawings by Glenn Keane from 1982, the creators at Atari imagine a device they called the “Intelligent Encyclopedia”.
"These drawings date from 1982 (thirty years ago). Alan Kay had just become the Chief Scientist at Atari and he asked me to work with him to continue the work I started at Encyclopedia Britannica on the idea of an Intelligent Encyclopedia. We came up with these scenarios of how the (future) encyclopedia might be used and commissioned Glenn Keane, a well-known Disney animator to render them. "
A Twitter profile from Smart Argentina (@smartArg) features all the frames to a text art animation, a car commercial. I put this gif animation together to see what it looks like - the idea being that you press / hold the ‘j’ button on your keyboard to automatically jump to the next tweet in succession.
The Old & New Project is a collaborative design project realized by Jim LePage and Troy Deshano that “exhibits works themed on Biblical stories and passages….attempting to replace popular, yet sometimes low-quality, contemporary Biblical artwork with the kind of accessible and honorable work that has historically been associated with the Bible.” On the site, Jim and Troy say they are not attempting to convert anyone or create religious propaganda. They say that they “want, in fact we need, artists from all types of faith perspectives….including those who have had a really negative experience with the church, agnostics and atheists.”
As each design is posted, prints are made available through the Old & New’s Society6 shop and all proceeds will go to a particular charity. For the current round, the charity is Blood Water Mission, an organization that focuses on empowering communities to work together against the HIV/AIDS and water crises in Africa.
I’m very proud to be a part of this project, as I’m currently working on my design. I find the project a fascinating endeavor and I’m curious to see where it’ll go from here. So far, great designs by Cassie McDaniel (that’s hers posted above), Andrew Lyons, Nate Utesch, Lydia Nichols, Lisa Romero, among others have been posted. Check them out here.
