Rembrandt CGI

I just read this post on James Gurney’s blog, Gurney Journey. It is statistical analysis and algorithms, and the use of a 3-D printer, that scientists have used to create what a “typical” Rembrandt painting would look like. I am at once fascinated, awed, and have a slight sense of foreboding… judge for yourself.

Get the info here on Gurney’s blog:


The Norman Rockwell Museum …

… has a new website, honoring The Art of Illustration. The museum, through its association with Rockwell Center for American Visual Studies, has recently launched a new historical web-based project: Illustration History: An educational resource and archive. Some of the greatest Illustrators of the past Century, plus those making their mark in the here and now.

Divided into genres and decades, this proves to be a great resource. Still, it’s new, and there are names that have been left out – check ‘em out and let ‘em know!

I have been somewhat fortunate…

SOMEWHAT fortunate, to have avoided this problem, though every once in a while, I do experience it. Read “How to Email an Illustrator” from  the website Illustration Age, written by Kyle Webster. I have to admit, there have been times that I’ve thrown up my hands and said; “What the hell is this??”; “What does she/he want?”; “Are you kidding?”
