The Brain is Stirring

Multimedia pieces are the most fun to work on, and the most satisfying when they turn out well. Here are a few examples of techniques you can experiment with or expand on to create your own multi-media adventures:

and imported into Photoshop®

Roller Coaster inverted

Animation in its simplest form is nothing more than a series of static images with the second image varying slightly from the first, the third varying from the second, and so on. Here's an example of a simple animation. For more complex examples, visit the animation section of the artwall or click here
Frame 1 Frame 2 Frame 3
Frame 4 Frame 5 Frame 6

Industrial Agony is a 20x30" collection of industrial and technical debris mounted on canvas.

I first amassed all sorts of gadgets and "stuff". The heaviest items were then wired to the canvas, the lighter items hot-glued, or tacked on. The final step was painting it using spray paint, chrome, and final touches of enamel based paint to add a little color to an otherwise monochromatic work.

Tip: The glue gun can be used to create some of the textures! Colored spot lights ignite the work at night.The chrome paint reflects the lights creating shadows that add even more dimension and interest to the piece.
