Your posting on the Figure blog of James Jean is awsome. And thank you for continuing the dialogue.
If I may, I have an opinion on your question "Using Digital Technology for creating Artwork."
If one can draw, paint, and think, then the digital world is just another tool of many tools - that an artist my use to create Art. I I like the idea of drawing and composing on paper first, and then scanning to Photoshop for the finish. It's a good way to go. Actually, traditional drawing is faster, but then Technologhy can be used to elaborate on the original, or for other visual options.
However, if one beliees that drawing and paining may be circumvented by technology, they're kiding themslves. That's why it's important to invest in Art training - like we offer at Ringling. Then the world of Tchnology, or any other tool, is just an extension of creativity. Art is the source- tools are the applicaions.
Thanks Tyler for the insprational question.
Looking forward to other folk's opinions here on the blog.
