On this page you find my blog, well more like blurps or brain farts actually since more extensive blog entries are posted in my portfolio blog that you find here. After the previous site was lost due to problems with Mobirise - the web editor with which this website was made - my blurps also vanished. They're sometimes graphics, art or design related and somethimes not. Don't bother to comment, I'll ignore comments on my blurps anyway.
Jan 09 2019 11:22 - Continuing the T-shirt designs. The black sheep of the family - c'est moi - is 100% vector, i.e. rescalable to any desired size without losing quality. To avoid misunderstanding - it may look like Mendez' goat, but it's not actually. You may want to see them in my portfolio blog.
Jan 02 2019 21:21 - Kicking off the new year with a few T-shirt designs. Some of them are slightly mundane, but I believe such is the demand of the market. All created using Affinity Designer of course. In the future I hope to be selling the designs in a printing on demand site, which is currently impossible for me to do for technical financial reasons. Take a peek at them in my portfolio blog.
Dec 30 2018 02:09 - I had a change of mind; in spite of the frustratingly long lag of rendering before drawn lines show on the monitor screen, I decided to continue the vector portrait of a wolf anyway, because I feel that I came too far to just abandon the project. This particular image shows a colour test. This is a work in progress, details will be added and amendments will be made, but it will take time as is explained in my portfolio blog.
Dec 24 2018 14:01 - A few days ago I started this vector portrait of a wolf. The big challenge was to make its fur look realistic. I did this on my Huion H610 digital drawing tablet, using Affinity Designer to draw. I hadn't used the tablet for quite a while, because I lost the pen in the mess of the room where my computer is. Bought a new one recently on Amazon. Making the fur look real is a tedious, time consuming business, and it got worse as more curves (brush strokes) were applied to the virtual canvas. Affinity Designer unfortunately isn't yet suited to work with a digital drawing tablet.
Dec 16 2018 03:01 - The bloke in the image is Sir Francis Bacon who actually constructed the English language (with the help of an army of assistents) which therefore is very different from any other language, in the sense that it hides deeper meaning in an astounding number of words of which etymology often reveals stunning significance. By far the most people today aren't aware of this and as a result use language without knowing the consequence of their speech or writing. It affects both the sender and receiver.
Dec 15 2018 14:30 - Somewhat analog to what Albert Camus said in the penultimate blog entry, Robert Frost said that writing free verse is like playing tennis without a net. I used to participate in several poetry sites in the past and inevitably the 'incrowd' or 'inner circle' wrote free verse. These people thought they were better than the rest who were useful only to pay contribution, not for the poems they wrote. I however, like rhyming poetry which gives the words extra power, like shamans, priests and magicians used to know and do in the past. The sounds of the words and rhythm in the sentences elevates the power of the poetry beyond normal spoken language. There is some sort of complex order in this universe, but it is dissimilar to the disorder in free verse. Order not being conjured man-made rules for those able to understand this.
Dec 14 2018 19:00 - This is the type of 'art' recently sold at big art fairs in Basel and Miami. I recommend to take a seat on the loo before having a peek at this site, particularly if you have reduced control over your anal sphincter. For those with severe rectal restraint I suggest wearing safety goggles as well. I totally agree with Mr. Albert Camus who said the following about abstract art: 'A product of the untalented, sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered'. Have a nice day.
Dec 14 2018 12:07 - If you want to bloody wise up, check out the Chinese, particularly those who have moved to other dimensions a long time ago. This best known bloke from ancient times had a lot to say that most westerners find very confusing, hence his name. But every now and then he makes sense to those that bothered to look past the barrage of fake news spawned by the paid traitors of lamestream media, that is. If you don't get what he said here, it's your loss. You're probably in for a few dozens of lives in this miserable dimension or an equally bonkers one elsewhere in some universe.
Dec 01 2018 20:49 24 - The burger binging band mentioned in the previous entry isn't going to disobey anyone or any organization they believe to be a legal authority, in doing so not taking into account that in order to reach the top - thereby gaining authority - a lot of jostling and deluding is required in this dog eat dog world, which makes by far the most authorities untrustworthy to say the least. It is more than obvious that today's authority and leadership are corrupt to the core, evil and ruthless. Anyone not of that opinion hasn't been paying attention. Such people will not be of help to cause the tables to turn, in fact they will most likely defend the hand that sways the scythe above their heads. Do not count on them and don't waste time in trying to make them see what is going on. It is useless, frustrating and often even dangerous.
Nov 18 2018 20:49 - I feel there's no way to ignore some things, yet there are shedloads of people doing just that while I thought everyone felt that there is something terribly wrong with todays world. A poem bubbled up thinking about this:
The brain-dead burger binging band
Is heading towards the burger stand
Which is why none of them will miss
Precious Wisdom, Truth and Justice...
In the end this will separate the chaff from the wheat, meaning the aware from the (wilfully) ignorant. The sad thing is that it is close to impossible to make ignorant people aware of what matters in this dimension. In addition, I think the end is quite near, to which I feel that I must add that each end is also a beginning of something new. So, a new beginning to each group probably is saying things more accurately.
Nov 04 2018 13:49 - New VectorWhiz logo and favicon. It stands out more than the old one (that contained too much detail) and its simple shape makes it easier to remember, while the merged text also directly refers to this web site, making it easier to remember both visually and text-wise. The combined V-W shape was created in Affinity Designer, extruded and filletted in Rhino 3D and the circular texts were made and coloured in Cinema 4D (also a 3D program). The latter has an excellent filter option that allows to enhance all sorts of (overall) properties of images before they are exported, making pixel editing redundant.
Oct 30 2018 15:03 - Two presidents in a row coincidently. Both not quite at peace with all sorts of induced mainstream perception. In case of potus it must be really difficult to take all the conjured liberal shit and dodging their assassination attacks, while silently working on removal of the deep state criminals. By this date the sealed indictments may start to be opened and the prosecution of the traitors can begin, followed by the hunting down of their corrupt peers all over the globe. Shoot all the fucking deep state bastards and burn their corpses.
Oct 10 2018 13:44 - This portrait of No Surrender MC founder and captain Henk Kuipers is the first digital hybrid that I made - the face was made in pixels (started in Corel PhotoPain(t), finished in Affinity Photo and Designer) and the tattoos were drawn in vectors. The original size is 55 x 55 cm. When printed digitally and furnished with the proper coating, it will look magnificent. Click the image to see the portrait progress sequence.
Sep 04 2018 13:00 - Affinity Publisher Beta has been issued by Serif. The war against InDesign has begun. Publisher is still in its early infancy, but already shows promising features. The UI - like that of all Serif's programs - is more intuitive than anything else on the market and the set of functions with which this first beta of Publisher was sent off into the DTP arena is kind of a warning shot across the bow of programs of the competition. They may laugh at Publisher's current functionality, but I'm convinced that will end soon. A future shot won't be across the bow, but one that will make the enemy vessels sink.
July 25 2018 11:27 - “Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.” – Andy Warhol
“Drawing is the honesty of art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.” – Salvador Dali
“Creative without strategy is called art. Creative with strategy is called advertising.” – Jef I. Richards
Whichever quote seems appropriate to you, whatever fits in your comfort zone or appears to be true to you. Being in denial towards what you've been told probably isn't a bad thing. Just because quintillion flies eat shit, it doesn't mean you have to. Standards are set by people that aren't necessarily smart and / or correct even if the status granted to them by society reeks of officially approved bla bla. It's all a heap of crap most of the time. The type of crap all those mindless flies feast on all the time.
July 11 2018 15:15 - Doctor Topping, during an Ayahuascatrip was visited by jaguars that sniffed at him, seemed to think, went away and returned to do the same several times. He was terminally ill; all his peers told him he would die within weeks. But the jaguars cured him and he lived for 11 years after the trip. This may be a metaphor in reference to what a black ops scientist once said: 'There isn't just the consciousness field, but also an omnipresent information field from which we tap information that we use to build consciousness.' These weren't his exact words, but it's what he intended to say. Information + consciousness = origin + destiny.
July 4 2018 19:00 - Celtic motives have always intrigued me for some reason. It probably is the effect on the subconscious mind of symbols. I quickly doodled one in Affinity Designer to see if a reasonable effect could be accomplished in a vector drawing program without ending up with an image that is too flat. I hate flat design; it just reflects a lack of skill, dedication and attention in my opinion, regardless if it is promoted (shoved down ignorant people's throats) to be trendy and therefore a 'must' to follow (for unwitting people with misfiring brains).
July 02 2018 10:07 - The icon you see here reflects Mortal Ignorance. Most people would not consider ignorance to be a fatal condition, but as often is the case, the term quite accurately describes the nature of what it seems to suggest, while at the same time, commonly being understood differently. The rather widespread inability to fit such perception into ones perception is the lack of it. Ignorance is a deadly disorder because it prevents adding unpleasant, yet affecting matters to the scope of awareness, which all too often is reduced to a delusional comfort zone that is life threatening without the endangered noticing it, as a result of ignoring important aspects (hence the word ignorance) that affect life, whether one likes them or not. Ignoring things however, doesn't make them go away. It is a mortal perception that unfortunately is horrendously common.
June 27 2018 12:00 - The reason you don't see my wonderful collection of brainfarts here, is because my previous site got lost due to trouble with Mobirise. It's a nice little program until you do things that are minutely slightly off-standard. Then you risk being f****d (pardon my French). What exactly happened you can read here. This type of info is nowhere in the Mobirise forums (duh!) or anywhere else on the web for that matter. If you don't like building and rebuilding your site too often, you may want to take a peek at what I wrote.
