Site admin deleted the original because the image wasn't captioned, so instead this is orphaned 🤦🤦🤦

Ver-r-ry constructive moderation that makes me want to be hugely more active here. /s

> Zero art is not easy. Zero makes a different appeal to the viewer. You need all your senses when viewing the idiosyncratic work of Armando, Jan Henderikse and Henk Peeters, among others.

If I were in the Netherlands I'd go to see this:

Just got a visit from comics artist Allan Haverholm, who gave me the brand new, double issue of C’est Bon Anthology (#56/57), which he edited

Huh, I've finally managed to make Zotero respect the dark theme on linux! :zotero:

If you know how to deal with "prefs.js", add these:

user_pref("", true);
user_pref("widget.content.allow-gtk-dark-theme", true);

Otherwise go to Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Config Editor, search for "allow-gtk-dark-theme". Two results should appear. Right click and "toggle" both. The value column should say "true" for both.

Then restart Zotero. Your eyes will be happy!

Please post your wordle results and similar as unlisted.

You set up a template for all federated posts — eg., do you want to post the full text, or the excerpt? Fedi users' replies even turn up as comments on your post, it's magic!

I'm pretty sure this won't work on, but you really should host your own, anyway.

Argh, I snoozed on another batch of follow requests. They're all approved now, sorry for the wait, everybody.

Cover illustration by Jeremy P Bushnell:

Uncomics — an artistic field where contemporary art and comics inform each other.

Where the absence of sequence encourages the reader to investigate the picture plane(s) in any direction and order, becoming an active co-creator in the process.

A space outside the tedious limitations of story, where images both abstract and suggestive interact.

Comics, at last, as a visual art form.

Edited by yours truly, available now:

Reading; What do pictures want? 

Today's (re)reading is chapters selected from the book "What do pictures want?" (MITCHELL, 2005: 🏴‍☠️) for my Visual/Cultural class.

There's this nice interview

#Asemicart #asemicwriting #art #graphite ##watercolour #mixedmedia
Haji Omar, who was born in Melbourne, Australia, and raised in Sri Lanka, grew up learning different languages (Arabic, Sinhalese, Tamil, English, and French), some of which she studied after moving to the United States. It is out of the confluence of cultures — she is of Syrian, Indian, and Sri Lankan descent — and their written languages that she has developed a visual vocabulary of lines and dots.
