Your work is fantastic. Thanks for the inspiration man, and I dig that you included Vincent. A nice touch.

Your work never ceases to inspire, but I know the feeling your talking about. Every six months it seems I love my work for a week or so, flowed by 5 months of trying to dig my self out of an artistic hole.

One of the reason I continue to come back to this site for inspiration, is that there are few places I can see growth every time I return, where each image exceeds my expectations.

I am obliged to you gentlemen.

Well, I regret missing your group show & have only ever seen your work as a mass of pinned up cut-outs & scraps which is ALWAYS interesting to behold & inspect. Perhaps you could EXHIBIT in this manner?
Literally pin-boards? Your point is interesting because the work we do in animation is not intended to be FRAMED & like you say it seems unnatural somehow.
Good to see you last week, really hope to see THE BLUE MAN realised some day.

I've seen your non-digital work from way-back-when you were using acrylics and such and I do have a box full of these,which are, in my opinion, masterpieces. I remember the time when you switched to digital and you continued to do amazing work and progressed in a variety of ways that I am not capable to analyze. But you are right, digital is not the same thing as a canvas that holds the one-off paint. (merely for that reason). One-off just means it is not endlessly re-duplicable, and therefore more precious in the hands of the beholder. Granted, you can scan that piece and re-duplicate, but that step before does make it somehow more precious. Fact is that you can do it either way and therefore I look forward to the next exhibit, digital or not. I love all of it and you know I am your biggest fan.

Hi Neil,
Let me assure you that the love you may or may not feel for your own work is entirely optional, everybody else is doing the loving and the adoring aplenty, it's almost embarrassing. But so long as this neurotic impulse of yours keeps the good stuff flowing, everybody's happy and you sure won't get any complaints from me.
Cheers.

i love this piece. But i understand what you are saying. In school I was taught to always do better, push myself, so soon i just figured everything i did wasn't good enough and it never will be. I'm trying to get back into make art cause i love creating and not some other reason.

Elliot said...

I think you should take it a step further and present empty noticeboards completely vacant of your work.
Your fans can print their favorite images out and pin them up themselves.

Matt, Uli, Luc, Nikki, Elliot,
I thank you, gentlemen and lady.

Neil as your tired of hearing, I'd like to see your "real" painting too. Might I suggest one of my cheats-- go mixed media, I print out the digital images onto Watercolor paper. Then work back into it with acrylic. Some I totally re- paint, others I just touch up a little. Just do one and it's not a print anymore. I'd also suggest you send a little more time finding the framing solution you really like, somewhere between tradition and nothing. You can mount a image on anything right? Your smart enough to think of something clever that you would like that nobody's done before.

limbolo said...

I've taken to painting the frames and occaisionally buying fucked-up old ones. So far I have more junk and clutter to choose from.... Which can't be bad.
