About Graphic Design

December 22, 2018
I decided to become a graphic designer in 1970 after seeing an exhibition of Polish theater posters. And although I found out very quickly that the job wasn't really about designing cultural posters and book jackets, that in…

So, as predicted...

December 20, 2018
I have had a whale of a time making things for the imaginary alpha.tribe RL store. No idea what this store is supposed to be all about at this at point - they seem to be selling everything.

From Azimuth to Cypher

December 08, 2018
Once upon a time there was a great free app called Mural.ly with which one could create boards. I assembled the material of a research project on just such a board. The full board looked like this:

Curio

December 04, 2018
Curio is playing into my 'minimalist and yet narrative' obsession in a way that the others aren't. Here, the 'tale' is in the steampunk textures with which I clothed the basic prims - mostly cubes actually. A…

She has it nailed

December 01, 2018
I am listening to her right now and - yes! For anyone who has any sort of hope of salvation for the system we are all subject to, what she says will be very hard to take. She is hardcore. And, from where I am sitting here on my …

Scrounging around for minimalist stuff

November 30, 2018
I am still preoccupied with my building stuff in SL. How to improve on it, how to bring myself up to scratch. The complex mesh stuff is really not for me. So, maybe taking the minimalist route I was talking about before is a goo…

Going back to minimal?

November 28, 2018
While I was putting together images for the  new ShapeShifter 2012 site  I re-rezzed some of the stuff that was on that sim in order to photograph it  (yes, don't ask - I was inexperienced and silly enough not to have made an …

The Symmetry book

November 26, 2018
Thinking of things I could do next, I keep coming back to graphic design. I made these pages a year ago for a project that was later published as an insert in a Turkish art magazine. We did not use this set but something else en…

The Miro Sphere

November 11, 2018
I had forgotten about this. It was a self contained environment inside a sphere filled with 3D objects that were inspired by Joan Miro's critters. I made this 4 or 5 years ago and the objects were in fact mesh. Made in photo…

So - what next?

November 06, 2018
During these past few years that I was away from virtual worlds, it wasn't just making things in virtual worlds that I lost interest in. I lost interest in making things - period.* What has been happening recently however is…

Self Evaluation in SL

November 06, 2018
The new island is more or less done. It looks OK, but it is nothing like what I achieved with Fool's Gold in 2015. The dark sky level is probably the best part visually speaking, and the ground level seems to work, if not en…

Arcadia's avatars...

November 04, 2018
As I wrote before I have used Arcadia Asylum's prims for many builds. Fool's Gold, the best sim I think I ever built was made almost entirely out of them, and this new one has quite a few as well. I am a big believer in …

Midnight Wastes

November 01, 2018
I have gone back up to the towers that I had started to build a few weeks ago. But, like most of what I do, things did not go quite as planned and I ended up adding things that I had not thought of when I was first thinking abou…

The crazy cat lady parlor

October 29, 2018
A while ago Eupalinos Ugajin gave me the sofa as a gift. And I was so delighted that I immediately rushed out to get the matching arm chair and put together a special parlor for cat lovers on the island.

The Hextraordinary Cat

October 28, 2018
Naxos gave me a wonderful gift. Just look at this little guy! And when I walk he walks right along with me. When I stop he immediately plops himself down and sometimes he swishes his tail. Not the upcoming animesh, the creator m…

I have decided to build a playground

October 28, 2018
From the sky tower city, which I am leaving alone for now, I have moved to ground level to put together an amusement park of sorts. Ferris Wheel, carousel, bumper cars, some rides and a shooting gallery. Or rather a grab-a-duck …

First trial - building towers

October 18, 2018
I have started at a sky level. The idea is to build another "city," but one that is quite different from Blueprint City where the whole idea was to use only cubes, rectangles and cylinders that were covered in textures…

But, it isn't just the gold

October 17, 2018
I am finding it quite hard to rebuild the island. Nothing seems to work quite how I want it to. And the truth of the matter is that the island that I built 3 years ago is probably the best thing I have ever made in Second Life a…
