How to read this blog




Welcome.


What is in an image? There is a report, a story, an explanation, maybe  an approach, an intent, an explanation what if you are fortunate, there is a question. We try to do this every time and the resulsts, more or less fortunate, can be seen here. The image is simultaneous, the text is successive.

 Here,  you will find snapshots and images of my illustrations, produced either in digital media or other analogic techniques along the years. Also,  I place some links below. That list is by no means comprehensive.
 

Sometimes, specialy in the context  of the publishing industry, we a, the image creators are the successors of the qiet monks scluded in the scriptoriums of lost convents, depciting with our ink, digital maybe in these days, the contents of the writers, cronists and philosophers of our days.
Medieval miniature, a scribe in a convent, in early Middle Age style, from a religious manuscript. The medieval monk was a predecesor of our today's illustrators, "illuminating" the content of the text.

WRITING

If we understand the creation of an image as a deliberate act, as part of the exercise of thinking and communicating in and with the world, it should come as not surprise that the artist engage in the act of writing, making part of the existence not only the creation of visual images, but also the verbal elaboration of thoughts on the topic of art. 
Hence, while not illustrations or paintings to see, here are the links to some articles I wrote on diverse subjects related to painting, drawing and illustration in general, some about my own work, and some about historical works of art:

SCRAPBOOK

Here you will see recolections, notes, seen an read in the net. Sometimes just images I consider important, sometimes links of websites I fear will dissapear, or text of articles I consider really necessary. Or material that somehow I need at hand. Of course, there are more that for many reasons had not made it to the blog. Always considering and mentioning the respective owners of the copyright.


There is here material about print publication as well, snapshots taken of pages found randomly, sometimes focused in data visualization, infographics.

Sometimes focused in the so called fine arts.

Sometimes they are a signal of my interest in interaction design, ux and other things.
History, Or technology.
