Idyllopus

Thanks. I clicked over to see if there were any more cop commments and there was, whoa, Cupid. Which is actually one of my favorites. Strikes me as a building the entrance of which can only be gained at a very discreet crack in the sidewalk between waking and sleep.

Do you know about Olduvai George? He's an artist specializing in digital illustration. His last post is a tribute to his dog, and he hasn't posted since 3/5, but poke around to see amazing work.

This Idyllopus seems like a cool cat.

Some guy once told me art is in the mind. Or in a cave. In some place called Altamira. Or maybe it was a cave that was like a mine? Or a cave like mind. There were shadows on the cave wall. Or something.

Idyllopus is a great place to go to when you need to just get away from it all. I love going there. She has beautiful posts about her trip west.

"Cupid's Wedding Chapel" has to be one of the best examples of digital art I've ever seen. Bravo, Idyllopus! And bravo, Lance, for sharing it with us.
The computer has opened up new worlds for me, as a writer. While I do sometimes get a little nostalgic for the clack of the typewriter, which could be used without electricity as long as the ribbon (and my fingers!) held out, the computer allows my fingers to ALMOST keep up with my mind as I write. Images flow. And I love being able to research arcane details and facts without having to take a special trip to the library. I love libraries, don't get me wrong. But often, I couldn't find the information I needed -- and I always ended up bringing home an armload of books to read, which would pre-empt writing for some time after.
I like this new tool, even as I smile remembering the old one.
