🏛️Revealing the first artist of #HoA

If you remember, in the last newsletter I was introducing upcoming series of videos for YouTube and Facebook named #HoA.

For the first episode I chose Jules Verne. One of the most famous writers in the world. We will look into his childhood, first love and some family drama as well.

Wait, you saying that a writer is not an artist? Nay, nay, I think below answer from James O’Donnel is explaining all.

An artist is anyone with a creative passion who devotes themselves to fully realizing their passion. It’s essentially an umbrella term for all such individuals who fit the aforementioned criteria.

A writer is a type of artist. They just have different tools and skills than others who are typically considered to be artists—painters, sculptors, etc.

🟠Update about the community on Circle

Status - in progress.

I hope to have it ready for you guys starting September along with the #HoA. I will probably begin to collect interested members sooner - per email invite but I will share more information once I will have the complete picture.

And what is it actually about? I mentioned few words before. The community just for you, members or people who are really interested in digital art, painting and everything around it.

Why on Circle?

Well, I was thinking about it a lot. If we should have it on Facebook or some other platform. But I have a feeling that Facebook is kinda dying in this respect and that a lot of groups are not very polite, or we see a lot of self-promotion and just stuff that I do not like anymore. I personally think it's better to have a lesser volume of people there but more on the same "wave". The forum is too serious and technical I would say, I want something warm a welcoming, just like a book club in your favourite cafe☕.

🖌️The Premiere of #DPC

Heck yeah! We did it. Or at least I did. I do not know what you were up to guys but I was pretty busy. Every day after work (yes, I'm still a slave of the system as well-no offence) I was polishing the DPC articles to have everything ready for you.

But I had so much fun with it, even though it is exhausting to sit so many hours behind the screen and also try to do the exercise as well to show you that I'm not just blah blah-ing (sometimes I post it with a slight delay -ups- sorry 😱).

You can check out what you have missed last week and still catch up on the backlog if you are interested:

#003 DPC: Training precision and fighting the straight lines
Motor skills, straight lines and hand-eye coordination are topics for today’s exercise. We are all fighting with straight and precise lines.

#007 DPC: Let the paper decide what you will draw - Entopic Graphomania
