Energetic Baby No.33

Energetic Baby No.33 by mitrm aka Ian Yang
Visitors' comments:
I like this as well. Has a feeling of a Japanese print to it, but more abstract, which I like because I feel I would be able to look at it many different times and see different things in it. - BitsOfNature on WetCanvas

Yep, blacks & warm colour striking though everything in its way!... well perhaps a bit aggressive, but heading towards deconstructing rather than constructing, so maybe sinister is a good description. -

A new work, and another occasion to explain myself through my work (oh how i hate that! :( ). Well, honestly I didn't devote myself to my art that much lately, depression, melancholy, or the hot atmosphere all get me down like a piece of cake. Anyway, remember that No.80 (sure you don't), No.33 was made to stand side by side with it, and I found myself a poor critic and judge to say which one is superior, I guess the little humble but proud artist inside my head tends to love his own works no matter what. I pulled lots of different techniques I'm familiar with together to make this, but my computer suffered badly for my nasty demands. The prints are available now on Imagekind, get them while they are cheap, for they will be worth thousands and thousands when I can't be more than dead. :]

Redbubble: Another Art Gallery for Ya!

First of all, let RB introduce itself a bit:
Name: RedBubble City: Fitzroy Country:Australia

RedBubble is an online art gallery + creative community. With a free membership you can:
  • Sell your artwork online in a hassle-free way
  • Connect with a vibrant community of creative folk
  • Buy great wall art + designer t-shirts

RedBubble has clean white background instead.

For me, it's kind of like flickr or terminus1525.ca but with bonus so you can sell wall art or T-shirts. You got almost everything you need to blow a bubble, such as an overview page, profile, portfolio, journal, watchlist and favorites (and I'm not saying it's a clone of DeviantArt : ]). So far it has about 4,000 members and most of them are Australian (Where is everyone From?), very fresh, user-friendly and inspiring. Check out my favorites to see some great stuff, or better yet, go get an account right away.



Note: Make sure you're images has proper tags for that's what make your works pop up (not the descriptions) in the search engine.

Hot Topics on Foundmyself.com

There are a couple of interesting topics I found on foundmyself.com, which I just joined, including:
Some artists have very extraordinary viewpoints on these, and maybe you would like to have a say as well.

Now It's Official... Good For Me! : ]

So after a whole month of all the muss and fuss, finally my very first portfolio website - A loft of my own - is online, it's offcial (well, no kidding), it's serious (well, not realy), it's a milestone for sure! It collects, for now at least, an almost complet collection of Energetic Babes and some important writing of mine, plus the very basic profile, some spotlight I got, and links of resouces that keep me attached to this ART THING. On the homepage you can find CREDITS on the bottom which I list a couple of links that help me through the painful process of webdesigning, about which I'm planning of writing additional info that you may be interested to learn and put on some special efftect to boost your works as well, such as floating document, drop-down tooltips, pop-up images, in the future; on the artwork section you get to read some of my visitors' remarks about each piece (I thank you all pals) -- basically that's all my website is about. Lots of works are still on my to-do list, so much to do but so tight the schedule (well, not really). I feel quite relieved after all, and also proud of myself for building a website on my own, I hope you all may enjoy a small amout of time you spend there and if you feel like it, use the shoutbox to introduce yourself and leave a brief note.

As for now, time to make more and more art and get some beauty sleep as well. Guten Abend. : ]
Note:
  1. It seems like my webpages work best on IE, as for Firefox, you better click F5 to refresh the pages; in Opera, the pop-up images totally fail no matter what and so far I simply have no solution. I apologize for the browser incompatibility thing,
  2. There is funny article on linesandcolors about how not to display your artwork on the web, you shouldn't miss this one if you host a portfolio website yourself.
  3. My baby No.80 got featured on blanketmagazine (issue Movement, 1st release), check it out!
