16 Characteristics of Critical Thinkers by Deep Patel

Critical thinkers are focused on constantly upgrading their knowledge, and they engage in independent self-learning.

ndlr: Must read!

_______

DuckDuckGo – the search engine that doesn’t track you!

ndlr: Been using it for a few years now – all searches you do are not recorded and NOT batched to a monstrous data retaining centre for further mining. Not as Gee do.

Must use!

I ditched the Mac for the iPad, and I’ll never go back by Jesus Diaz

The iPad Pro has changed my life, and I don’t care about desktop computing anymore.

ndlr: I own one (first gen) and DO all my generative art + art / photos editing on it!

_______

While cheats and swindlers may be a dime a dozen, true con men are elegant, outsized personalities, artists of persuasion and exploiters of trust. — Scott Monty

IAD is now

To all the artists who dedicate their efforts – resources – dreams – LIFE to making this world more beautiful! Don’t give up – no matter what – the world needs you.

_______

ndlr: Today is International Artist Day and to celebrate it yearlong – I have kicked off a new category on Netdiver: ART!

@itsstefa rocks

Stef Thiele is a painter living in Hamburg and happens to be the one artist – I admire the most. Her work is so modern and versatile. It can even translate well into marketing campaigns..

_______

Having observe her evolution over the past year or so – is an indication of greatness in becoming. She is the first artist I feature on Netdiver mag. Not the last! Stay tuned.

_______

Excerpt from her artist manifesto:

I am a viking. But despite my own uncompromising determination, my works consist of a difficult-to-describe mix of euphoric "what if’s" and melancholic “could have been’s”.

_______

The yearning for spontaneity and freedom collides with the compulsion to try to foresee the future and plan it meticulously. This is translated into busy, colourful compositions that are seemingly unable to find a clear focus.

_______

Often whole pictures are buried beneath the surface of a completed work, with only tiny parts of the past peeking through the hundreds of layers of thick brushstrokes and poured and thrown acrylic paint. Each picture is a battlefield – a back and forth between giving up control and winning it back.

Visuals only?!

Predicted years ago that we were embarking in the ‘age of images’ meaning that our communication currency would become exclusively visual. Marco Simonetti did a photographic essay on that topic.

_______

The only way to ‘decipher’ what the image is about is by capturing its Q-R-Code. If you don’t – you (and I) will judge the ‘story’ based on our subjective sensibilities and values.

Take time to view the project. Isn’t this a brilliant social essay?

World Peace?

Need I say more? At least, we’ve got the World Peace logo as a starter – designed by talented Gabriel Benderski.

_______

ndlr: World peace is not a light topic and with the spreading (and far worst) accepted way of life of rifes for riches. It breaks my heart. Not giving up!

/ ps: Wish I had designed it.

I’m Back!

Has it been 7 weeks already? Never took time off from publishing nor curation to focus on creating ART only. Read the whole post for a more in-depth reveal of my new career direction.

________

Change of avatar = new journey for me.

Updated avatar reflects both sides of what content to expect in my feed: design + art.

cgwarex new avatar

_______

Netdiver mag will publish again – weekly – and as of right now lol. I still hold a lot of appreciation and respect for creators in the industry. Guess I just can’t stop showing what inspires me.

Curation of design + abstract art in the XXI century have resume.

_______

If you like Colourpop art – follow my Instagram feed to view my color explorations and where I share about processes, artist life, tools and tips. Oh and the Merge series is well under way, and I have loads of new works to show.

_______

Editorial addendum

Red hot on my mind is ‘content‘.. visual and written. What and how – staged or not – to show? What and how – personal or not – to write?

My eureka moment came when I realized I wanted to share my ‘explorations’ – as a big eye wanderer and record the ‘journey’.

That’s it. Simple. No limits – no constraints – no agenda – no schedule – no performance – no imaginary crowd to please.

I am on the ‘move’ creatively – an artistic explorer of sort – this is who I am – so who I am I – I will share.

Happy March 8!

Happy March 8! The day we celebrate women around the globe who rock the world with more than pink design.

Hats off to the powagirrrls!

_______

Give hugs + props + honor!
