New Peppers no more

I decided to leave my old art blog. I hadn't written anything on there for the past year+. And since I'm paying a dollar a month for this site, it makes more sense to do what little I do, on these pages.

Electronic media...I don't know the correct name for what I'm doing these days. I have a Wacom digital tablet, complete with a stylus which becomes my brush or my pencil or even a spray can of paint to add graffiti to my work. It's not a toy. A lot of people think it is.

And during that time I have given up on Facebook. Except that I haven't. I decided to remove my real self from FB and return under a pseudonym. I'm now Billy Bob Wurlitzer. Heir to the second cousin of famed organ building family's fortune in old organs. Or I can be whatever I feel like being. FB was simply becoming too intense for me and I couldn't handle it well.

With that out of the way, I can talk about digital art. Because of my hip and spine pain, I have been unable to use my wonderful easel. Standing for very long causes pain; ergo, I don't stand. I did decide to pursue digital painting instead. Quite a few well known artists have tried digital and done well with it.…
