Orange lovers

When I was preparing this mail to send to two Orange lovers, I found out that there still is no IUOMA-group for Orange lovers.

So here it is! If Orange is your favourite colour, and if you want to share Orange mail with the world: join!

(by the way, my favourite colour is Turquoise...)

What I meant to say is some analog art has an easy transition to digital art but others you have a harder time capturing such as the aesthetics of a sculpture in a photograph. Some paintings have much more effect in real life due to chemical composition of the paint than what they show through a digital image.

There are some interesting emerging technologies such as embedded computer arrays that will capture a 3D object and translate its contours into a virtual reality object.

It all boils down to No Rules, friends! 

My first impulse is to draw Heleen, but digital art of any kind is also very exciting, all those filters, and you never know with what are you going to end.

Digital art, I have found, is best suited to photocollage, which is quite traditional. As such it is great for political commentary and such like.

Porkenigma, I do not know which style of digital art is worse, No Rules is the Rule!

I think both digital and analogue ways of making art are two different, unique and great branches of the big tree: creating art.

Speaking for myself, I - similar to you, Mail Art Martha - prefer taking a pen, pencil, brush in my one hand and feel the paper or canvas or whatever with the other. And personally spoken, I love to see drawings/paintings.
(And as I am not good at cutting and sticking right I’d rather draw the collage than cut/glue (analogue or digitally) to make a collage).

I must say I love your drawing of the orange, PoRKeNiGMa!

Although it does open the door to an interesting conversation: what types of art translate most poorly to the digital realm.

My mistake, I should have stated I am a digital collage artist.

Thank you Heleen and on a subject very dear to me, I firmly believe that Digital Art does not exclude drawing, as the previous comment implies.

Drawing is not my skill, I'm mainly a digital artist.

There's no orange pens at the convenience store, just red, black, and blue.

Multipurpose, great finding and wonderful work, Mail Art Martha!

Katerina’s orange/banana mail art is multipolivalente, too (and may contain clocks and an onion) but yours strikes all records :-)

Good evening Orange Lovers! I made a multipurpose- polivalente - one size fits all Postcard. My first. Here it is,
