DAVID R STONG: June 2009 Archives
One thing always connects with so many others; it makes it hard to write. I really should just stick to pictures. This is a quick doodle with very little concern for polish. I'm thinking this degree of looseness is worth exploring: Jorge Colombo has managed a very loose style with the New Yorker cover he did on his iPhone. I'm not sure if the style would find acceptance without the iPhone "hook". With his cover's notoriety and the ubiquity of iPhone and iTouch devices, perhaps digital graphics will evolve a new identity? Obviosly, he could have taken a photo- so this was a clear aesthetic choice. As Disney is poised to release a completely digital but yet not modeled, not CGI animated feature I find myself wondering if digital is a genre at all.
