Digging In

One of my least favorite parts of developing new projects is that lull that inevitably occurs between the initial brainstorming-slash-white boarding of ideas and making any measurable progress towards their realization. During this time you’re typically making sketches, laying scenes out on index cards, pouring foundations, writing base code, etc., and it’s frustrating because this part of […]

Experience And Memory: Al Wildey [Q&A]

A big part of my childhood was spent looking out the window of a car, particularly in the summertime. Most weekends between June and September, we would load up the bed of my dad’s 1974 Ford pickup with camping gear and head east on Interstate 10. Passing the dinosaur at the Wheel Inn meant four hours to go until […]

Winter In A Summer Paradise: CG Architecture by Csaba Bánáti

One of the topics on last week’s episode of On Taking Pictures was Ikea – specifically their newest catalog, which is now approximately 75% CG. Let that sink in a moment. As you’re flipping through the pages looking for that new Skogaby sofa to complete your living room, three-quarters of the things you are looking at don’t […]
