Batting Out Another One

Batting Out Another One Originally uploaded by Gelatomettista2.

Another one...they take about 30 minutes and honestly, it's mostly trial and error at this point.

The images are too day-glo really but I like the pop art effect you get with the saturated colors. Painting this with oils or acrylics would take hours. And yeah, this is done with a Wacom product...the Cintiq21.

It's the monitor which you can draw on. I have a Wacom tablet and that was fairly effective and intuitive but the Cintiq is just like drawing on paper.

Remember The Seed

'In today’s world of modern conveniences, of cell phones and pagers, stealth fighters, nuclear submarines, electron microscopes and radio telescopes, it is sometimes easy to forget that the ability to pursue science unimpeded, to let imagination wander where inquiry leads, to investigate and reach beyond ourselves, is not an entitlement but a right that was fought for, as were other rights fought for, sometimes to the death. This struggle has shaped our history and our souls. In it are the seeds that define us as a species. It was curiosity, not Eve, that tempted Adam.'

Shutting Your Eyes

'After looking at a mountain, if we shut our lids and dwell on the scene internally, we are led to seize upon its important details. The mass of visual information is interpreted and the mountain’s salient features identified: its granite peaks, its glacial indentations, the mist hovering above the tree line - details that we would previously have seen but not for that matter noticed.'
- Alain de Botton
How Proust Can Save Your Life"
