thanks for the comments... took me a bit to read.
well said chossy... I do find joy in the things I make.
Etype ? is that comment directed towards me ? who makes my new stuff ? I just glanced over my shoulder and there's only 1 person sitting in my studio... and I'm wearing his underwear.
I like josh.
He has been helpful to many people on qbn/Newstoday for years.
That means more to me then some reporter who has got nothing better to write about then bashing someone for being successful.
That being said, i didnt read the article.
The fact that Josh is able to maintain his own technique in a world that feels if you aren't always reinventing yourself you grow stale is admirable...
Josh is a great guy but I don't know him.
Artists in general are recognised for their style and technique.
To deride people for having a style and not changing is about as useful as teets on a boar.
no harshness here, but somehow it is always like this, after the subject posted him/herself the comments move in the direction of support instead of critique. quite funny you guys.
David West...what a jackass. Keep doing what you're doing JD.
joshua Davis (algorithms)
i dig his work, the presentation and workshop files from his site are awesome too...
dis thred and teh blog is a lot of readin, sillie hoomans, srsly
Quite amusing to see how all the Josh bashers have disappeared once the man himself joined the discussion ;)
i olmost had to wip out mie layser eyez
(perhaps horp aside)
are not artists.
- Horp is an illustrator? I rather thought Horp was merely a made-up name, riffing on the scot's pronunciation of 'hope'Horp
- +perhaps bleating as art asidefrancoisfido
- (scot's should be Scot's, apologies)Horp
I guess if you have found a successful "style" or approach which clients like and it keeps you in work, then there's nothing wrong with that. For all we know, he could have loads of other stuff up his sleeve or other stuff he's working on.
A lot of what has been said can be said of a lot of successful designers/artists/agencies - But why re-invent the wheel?
Yeah, you can argue about being creative for the sake of it and process and all that but a true creative person is the one who recognises when they are onto something instead of wasting time trying to do something "different".
Man I have a swollen arm, I'll need to get that looked at sooner than a mummy lover. Still though how amazing is my snout :D, you could fit that thing up loads of stuff.
Khurram... that's called making a living. slap slap slap.
janne76 it's usually the reverse for me... the trolling gets heavier.
chossy... I think this is what has totally confused me... in the 80's I looked a pop art and one thing was clear that the artists I was looking at had a very specific visual style. Yet people keep bringing this up... maybe I've got it all wrong... but I thought working toward an identifiable visual style was something you wanted to achieve.
someone brought up Robert Hodgin's work... while Robert jumped from Flash to Processing to Java to now C++ hit his Flickr page... and every image is undeniably Robert whether that work was create in any of the aforementioned technologies.
style is OK - I'd say it's the ultimate achievement but I'll try not to make this personal.
just because it's new... doesn't mean it's the best... if you can kill it in HYPERcard... kill it in HYPERcard.
