Doodling Data, at long last!

Sunni Brown takes us on a five minute redemption campaign for putting pen to paper in the midst of meetings - not only do we retain nearly 30% more information whilst adoodle, we are more likely to integrate ideas while making marks.

I Am Still Alive (until tomorrow)

No, not a dire personal proclamation of any sort. The MoMA's drawing exhibition, I Am Still Alive: Politics and Everyday Life in Contemporary Drawing closes tomorrow, September 19. What better time to highlight the MoMA's outstanding online resource for drawing, contemporary and modern? I am getting link happy, but the searchable collection is a wonderful thing.

Woodward at the EAM

Chicago artist Matt Woodward's graphite drawings inspire me to look up - to find the features at altitude, to savor the moments of care and intricacy that grace our facades, to cherish fading light and passing time.

Woodward's latest exhibition opens this Friday at the Elmhurst Art Museum, in The Tremendous Alone.

Of Zoetropes and Transiscopes

I harbor a deep and abiding love for raw animation, the grittier the better. A new gritty high (and low) for me, as seen in the Masstransiscope, Bill Brand's 228-frame work from 1980, which fills the tunnels from Dekalb Avenue into Manhattan (lucky B and Q!). Video and full project information is here. Thank you Heidi Rae Cooley!
