In 2012 I wrote this post:
Indeed why do I have these two blogs – the other one http://www.walterlogeman.com/art is about art and art online. My art.
I’m thinking of importing that one into this one – but found it quite hard to do it. It is an identity thing. I’m more a psychodrama person than a Psyberspace person these days. Dropped psychotherapy online. But is it an art blog? I’m wring a book called D R A M A http://www.walterlogeman.com/art/new-art-project/
It is not that I’m importing one blog into another – I’m integrating two identities I have. I think it will be good for me!
Some categories to fix, and that is it. ONE
Now what to call the site?
Psyberspace (that can stay) Walter Logeman’s Journal
And the details & history can go in the new About
Later Monday 29 Jan 18
Also found this on the integration theme
Podcast: Speech Bubbles: Understanding Comics with Scott McCloud
Great. Inspiring. Here is the blurb
Cartoonist and theorist Scott McCloud has been making and thinking about comics for decades. He is the author of Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art. This classic volume explores formal aspects of comics, the historical development of the medium, its fundamental vocabulary, and various ways in which these elements have been used.
Scott McCloud breaks down some of the universals in comics and guides us through some of the comic books that pushed the art form forward. Then we use that lens to look at graphic communication in the world at large.
Speech Bubbles: Understanding Comics with Scott McCloud
Just discovered Kōji. Wow. I love this stuff.
PS . Putting art stuff here now. Art Blog http://www.walterlogeman.com/art hacked. Might keep that going afterall its all psyche in cyberspace.
I’m learning to use Jetpack for this blog. I’m also working on my art journal This is one of the Gallery sets that was in is my art blog but is not there now! Jetpack is doing a nice job!
I used to a lot of these, but no more? I still like them. I’d even forgotten there was a name for the genre.
I’ve joined a creativity group with Jan Allsopp who I’ve known online for a long time. My commitment is for a month (at least). Committed to 15 min a day for the month of January – I’m working on a book. I’ll post more about the book as time goes on. Today is day six and I’ve produced a lot each day. I find it helpful to have such a strong focus. A simple idea, choose a route – i.e. the tools. Mine are the Google files (Doc and Slides) I’m using to write the book. In addition we create ‘cruise control’ – a voluntary frame in which to work. Some voluntary restrictions I’m using are:
- No new sketches.
- Work on the book proposal only, not the whole book.
Also good to see other peoples art – so far so good. It will get harder as the month intensifies.
This is what the spreads in the book look like:
ITM – About this art book project
What do you think? I like it but I can change my mind at any time.
Posted earlier in this blog. Also the titles here may change.
One for the ITM project.
ITM – About this art book project
An early one #23 in the ThousandSketches. I like it.
I have a new creative project. A book. I will select about a hundred of my images that evoke a variety of mood and intensity, ranging from calm, surprise to fear. I’m working on the words. This project will link my art work with my psychological work. I’m looking for quality. Curation. The main thrust of the work is abstract, though some open-ended figurative images might pass the test.
Posts wi candidate images for the project will be in the Category ITM . I’ll be creating new images, searching for old ones, updating old ones and improving print quality if I can.
Which of my images do you think belong here? Have a look at ThousandSketches and earlier sketches on this blog. Post a link in the comments on this post And we can discuss.
Please comment on posts. What is the mood, intensity and moment or life stage the image evokes.
I’ll continue to post new sketches here that are not in the ITM Category (yet), so I will feel free to explore.
Thanks for being on the journey so far.
Its more than a year since I posted some of my art. There are reasons! But here are a few more – continuing more or less where I left off.
I’ve an urge to do some plain air sketching. So been Googleing
