Robin 's Blog
I would say that it works either way for the artist, but better to stay away from it unless you are willing to jump in with both feet... inability to tweet, blog etc. to one's advantage can be worse than leaving it out of your plan!
So here I go... I'm taking a course at OCADU - actually in the Digital Media program at night with James Fowler... prof. who really knows his stuff!! Wow! I want this amazing job at Toronto Public Library in the Dept. of Preservation and Digitization - where I work. As an artist, it would be such a fabulous challenge to work there with rare materials..you know, historically important children's book illustrations, significant Canadian content, art catalogues, etc. Yesterday, I saw an Emily Carr first edition containing a repro set of of her original charcoal drawings ...it was gorgeous!! So inspiring and brings me closer to my own work. I love other artist's work who's subject is the night sky too, but most are in the U.S.
Anyway, have a look at some of my Dark Sky Drawings...What are your thoughts?
