My latest (February) 2023 art release(s) - 🏝️ Tropical effect! (Updating)

 


What a great effect, right? It’s a 2-part composite image, essentially, with an Adobe Photoshop Kaleidoscope effect (I think), with a white background ink brush illustration with glitch effect, as a separate top layer, with luminosity layer effect applied, in Adobe Illustrator, and then I played around with the opacity, a bit, and maybe some work with Vectorization of the top layer, to achieve layer and vector-bits independence, from the underlying kaleidoscope (or Collider, maybe) background layer. 

It’s got the same glitchy effect that we all know and love, from recent years’ popularization, on mobile devices, and in marketing imagery, as well as pop culture uses of the glitch effect, such as in effect-sy music videos. 

Here’s Adobe’s informational and instructional page on the various ways to make the Glitch effect happen. 

I call it “Tropical,” I guess, if I had to name it, and it’s got all the features of glitch (color aberration version) about it, with the color palette blown out, in full glory, and some organic variety, given the collider / kaleidoscope background. Here’s the background image I used, in case you don’t have access to Adobe Photoshop on a Desktop or Laptop computer, and you want to recreate this effect. You will need (I think) Adobe Illustrator, in some form - I made this happen on an iPad Pro (2022 model).

Adobe is still offering discounted rates (January 10th, 2020) on their subscriptions.

Many of my readers would have known me from my old pirating days as a cracked software installation specialist on craigslist.

Since that time, I've been through a gauntlet of many forms of mistreatment through Scientology; I suppose, all in all, somewhat well-deserved. As the years have gone past, the voices and the punishments have subsided; in particular, as of late, some corollary bitsies of stalking from former peers has also subsided. A fortunate segway in to a path towards a new lifestyle - establishing my enterprise on completely ethically-founded and funded merits.

I had planned to get the Adobe Creative Cloud and several of Adobe's apps, from their Creative Cloud Suite, about a week ago, when I was working on my iMessages iPigeon.institute's Pigeons of Lé Lycée Français Pigeon Stickers app for the Apple iTunes App Store. I had to cancel my 7 day free trial before I received my iPad - my formative and fundamental tool for illustration design. (I'm still waiting on it to be processed at a local Target store). Despite this, I saw an offer, as I was cancelling my subscription, for the Creative Cloud Suite for $29.99 per month - a good discount from their annual monthly paid plan of $52.99 per month. This morning, I called Adobe Customer Service +1 (800) 585-0774. It was early in the morning, before 6 a.m. The customer care representative offered me an even better discount than the website offered - $19.99. I was elated to get such a generous discount under their education plan. In addition, he offered me a good faith gesture of 3 free months of subscription after the first month. All in all, an awesome deal.

An exciting start to a new year - plotting my macOS, iPadOS, mobile and development lifestyle budget and subscription allocations.

Having been a former shameless software pirate craigslist enterprise (2007-2012-ish), as well as DRM content torrent downloading aficionado, I must say, once again, for the record, that I fully encourage people who still refuse to pay for their content and app licensing, to become free of their bonds and debts due to the creators of works in digital - few could claim that the merits of the opposition would outsmart the big tech's legal, executive, administrative, surveillance, and counterintelligence departments, altogether. I sure got a Scientology hard time about it, for a significant run of 5 years, and more.

That being said, I now have a much more stringent and disciplined lifestyle (of tech, still) in that I am, in small measures and means, contributing and creating in small developmental tech, IoT, creative, and analytical projects, many; and much to the fulfillment of all hours of most days (of days that are well-to-do in productivity.

Here's what this month's budget for iPigeon.institute's January 2020 plans for the roadmap, affinity, and content distribution of efforts and capabilities will extend unto.

My calculated budget, given General Relief payment (welfare)
The details of my proposed budgeting for my creative, recreational, development, connectivity, and financials (credit and loans), subscriptions, Human Resources and outreach marketing, design, cloud platform, and MDM (Multi-Device Management) efforts. I have $221 to work with, starting on the 2nd of each month.

I was a bit torn, as to who, where and why I would [might] allocate this largest chunk of payment towards, here; being Adobe's Creative Cloud Suite offerings, at individual retail price of $52.99, versus a Jeux d'orgues virtual instrument pipe organ, a fine suite of offerings in this category, by Markus Sigg, who offers some of the sampled organ instruments for free. The larger spread of octaves and samples are for the paid apps.

Description

The famous Jeux d'orgues 2 sampleset of Joseph Basquin (see http://www.jeuxdorgues.com ) is now available on the iPad and iPhone. Connect a MIDI keyboard or MIDI console to your device to play this sampleset of the Stiehr-Mockers organ located in Romanswiller, France. The app supports wireless MIDI, virtual MIDI, background operation and recording to WAV/M4A files. Visit the app support page for a detailed description of the app's features and to listen to some sound examples. An iPad 2 or later is recommended to get a decent polyphony, but the app can also be run on an iPad 1 with lower polyphony or sample rate. For usage on iPhone, we recommend the models with large screens.

For hearing sound examples of the app, please visit the support page http://polaron.de/Jeuxdorgues/ .
