Well looks like we’ll run a little behind in launching a collaborative portion of the Avant Garde site CarlosL Romero.com
However on the bright side what’s really important is having artist like Monica Palermo, of Italy, Maggie Beresford an Australian photographer and Jamie Winter a Native American Genre artist, willing to collaborate on taking art into a new direction where artist themselves are responsible for all means of production of their work. What does this do? Why it make art more affordable when you take the profits of corporate types out of the equation. Along with this goes the feed them pablum, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it and it’s not commercial value system mentality.
Another great tool I found to take a look at for free is Google’s Sketch Up 7, it gives the ability for an artist to import a JPEG and pull it up to any scale without the loss of resolution.
Til’ next time stay Avant Garde!
