Easy Way To Put Your Art in Virtual Reality

Unless you’ve been living off the gird or under a rock for the last half decade or so, you have undoubtedly heard of the blogging platform Tumblr. After all, it is one of the most used sites in the world.

And in the last year or so, the idea of virtual reality has really been taking off with the introduction of wearable headgear for games and applications.

What if I told you that you can now combine the two, with virtually no tech skills, to promote your artworks? Here’s how:

Step 1

If you don’t already have a Tumblr account, sign up and get started on a blog to show off your creative efforts.

Step 2

Once you have one in place, use your Tumblr page address after this in an address bar – http://tbaloo.com/tumbvr/. So, if your site is http://pittsburgh-portraits.tumblr.com/ (little plug, lol) the address will be http://tbaloo.com/tumbvr/pittsburgh-portraits.tumblr.com

Step 3

Click the VR google link in the bottom right corner and you’re all set to view your blog in full virtual reality!

No only is this really interesting but also a good promotional feature for any artsy person.

A new poetic style

As a person who loves to be inventive in my own way, it was a while back that having been inspired by the likes of the Sonnet, Limerick and Haiku, I thought about trying to develop my own poetic format. This is what I ended up developing. Who knows, maybe it will catch on.

I call it Singular Linearism.

The name is a result of the fact that it is made up only lines of a single word or single small phrase of less that 5 words. The full piece can be either 16 or 20 lines. And the structure is as follows:

If 16 lines –

Lines 1 – 3 – One word

Line 4 – One phrase of 3 to 4 words

Lines 5 – 7 – One word

Line 8 – One phrase of 3 to 4 words

Lines 9 – 11 – One word

Line 12 – One phrase of 3 to 4 words

Lines 13 – 15 – One word

Line 16 – One phrase of 3 to 4 words

If using 20 lines the phase should be at lines 5, 10, 15 and 20.

Exhilaration

Falling leaves

New Art Book – Optical Atristry

A lot of my recent book writing ventures focus on the electronic format and have included how-to style guides on artistic concepts. But I am excited to have just competed a book for display purposes with art pieces called “Optical Artistry.” Check out some sample pages I have added to this post and buying option on my author site.
