What the heck is this?

This is one of the things I do instead of watching TV. Rest assured, I’m not under any delusion that I have artistic ability. But, I have gotten some catharsis from creating these. If you are entertained, annoyed, offended or repulsed by them in any way, please feel free to leave a comment (inane, thoughtful, or anywhere in between). You’ll need to sign up through wordpress.com, but it’s free and doesn’t take too long. You can click on the “logged in” link where it says “You must be logged in to post a comment”, and you will be directed through the process.

There may be other works of socalled art by other socalled artists. If so, it will be noted above or below the thumbnail. I also have some actual art thrown in from time to time. Please also note that there may be other pages of socalled art. If so, just click on “Previous entries” at the bottom of the page.

And another thing… the socalled art may look a little blurry after you click on the thumbnail to enlarge, depending on your monitor size. If you click one more time on the enlarged picture, it will zoom in and fix any blurriness… so, you’ll be able to see them in their full splendor and glory.

And another another thing… these magnificent works of socalled art were initially created using Microsoft® Paint, version 5.1, which I liked (and still like) for its no-frillsness. I then started to use the freely downloadable Paint.NET which was/is good because it allows me to be lazy when I need to be, and more easily create something aesthetically pleasing to me with minimal socalled artistic investment.  Just recently (end of September), I switched back to a Mac and am using a program called ArtRage2, which I think is well worth the $25 price tag.

  1. Welcome.

  2. Socalled art. Reminds me of this :

    ‘John Cage had come to feel
    art in our time
    was much less important
    than our daily life

    If there’s a perpetual plan
    for discovery days
    where everyone can take part
    in what he called
    purposeless play
    and there’s a sign of life in this play
    not to get order from chaos
    tell you how to create
    but simply to wake to your life.’

    – Tiger the Lion, Tragically Hip

  3. Perfectly apposite, apropos, germane, and material.
