I just wanted to say that I was impressed by your packaging and shipping. I found you when I was searching for papers I just couldn't get locally and thought it was worth trying an order. I'd been resigned to the idea that small paper orders would end up rolled and in a tube, but I was pleasantly surprised to find my order shipped flat and well protected. Thank you. I will be ordering from you again.

Computer Art

Computer Art is any art that was conceived or produced by a computer. Even more important than these factors is the distinction that in computer art the technological role of the computer(s) is essential, or at least emphasized over other mechanized or manual methods. Computer art can be traced all the way back to the early 1950s, and the "Oscillons" created by Ben F. Laposky. The artist used electronic circuits to create electrical vibrations which were then displayed on the screen of an oscilloscope and finally captured using still photography. In the early 1960s, machine generated art began to pick up steam, initially produced, not by artists, but by the engineers and scientists that had access to early, expensive, computer technology. The presence of computer art was legitimized in 1968, when the Computer Arts Society was founded in Britain. The society brought together people from around the world that had begun to explore the ways that technology could impact art. In comparison to today’s products, the art of the computer was crude, as the artist had very limited means by which to input data. This clumsy, static approach was put to rest when, in the 1970s, the light pen was first introduced. This innovation introduced a hands-on element into the work for the first time. “Painting” directly on the screen was an understandable approach for many artists, including David Hockney and Richard Hamilton, notable computer artists. As computers and other electronics have become more powerful, sophisticated, and affordable, they have had a tremendous impact on the world of art, and allowed artists to achieve compositions that were once unimaginable.

I have used Delta glass paints for years. They were wonderful. The "new" batch is awful. Too thick, hate the opening, and I still have votive glasses painted with old version. New stuff is coming off. Very disappointed.

I have 2, and highly recommend this great product. Anyone painting on canvas should have them. Its a simple idea with a funny name and a reasonable price. It makes "schlepping" a wet canvas so much easier. With 2 you can carry 2 paintings back to back.

These pencils are GREAT for sketching. The fit in the hand is far superior over round pencils and they don't go rolling off when you set them down. Unlike other thick pencils I've used, the graphite in these is very smooth - none of these nasty chunks that scratch up the paper or glue seams that fail, busting the lead apart and wasting half your pencil. By far,this is my sketching pencil of choice. Oh, and to sharpen, the wife gave me a makeup sharpener - its plenty wide enough, cheap and easy to get.
