We’re working on a new improved version of WPFolio, and could use your help! WPFolio gives artists a free and open source tool to create their portfolios. With thousands of downloads, it’s likely to be many artists first encounter with free and open source tools!
While the project started a couple years ago, WordPress has developed several features that make it easier to create this kind of site and WPFolio is keeping up. The 1.6 version includes:
All this for the fabulous price of zero dollars!
1.6 is a beta release and there’s some bugs and improvements we need to get done before we can submit it to WordPress. Some are super simple things like improving php code, updating deprecated tags, and enabling custom headers, so if you want to take ‘em on, we’d appreciate it. You can fork WPFolio on GitHub and all the issues are listed on the GitHub issues page most with links leading to solutions. If you want to check out WPFolio more generally, see the WPFolio Owner’s Manual. If you have any questions, get in touch!
Once WPFolio is in primo shape, we may update the FFFFFat theme….
As part of my Lower East Side Printshop Special Editions Residency, I created this series of silkscreen (and hand altered) prints called, Out of Ideas. This video shows some of the process of how each were made.
If you’re unfamiliar with the world of fine art prints, it’s not a good idea to touch them with your bare hands, wrinkle or kink them in anyway… you get the idea.
Video shot at the Lower East Side Printshop. Doug Bennett was the Master Printer, James Miller did the silkscreening. Video edited while on a residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts. Music except is “Can’t Get Satisfied” by Jack McDuff.
See Part 1. The Greenpeace “equipment” (no spoilers!) will be put into use for the first time in a few hours. Keep an eye on the news…
In March of 2010 I caught wind of a project at Greenpeace that sounded incredible. Victoria Estok and I headed down a couple weeks later with a camera and a mic to talk to people about it.
The Greenpeace project will go public on the 17th, but in the meantime I’ll be posting the piece I put together. This is Part 1. Part 2 I am currently editing and will have up asap.
Side note: Seeing what Greenpeace does from the inside… they are amazing. When you see canvassers on the street, really consider becoming a member.
