Artist of the Day: Patrick Smith
Patrick Smith (not to be confused with indie animator Pat Smith) is an artist whose work tends to be constructed of colorful objects as if toy construction and geometric block sets have assembled into new beings and landscapes.
Patrick is the rare artist who is equally accomplished in the technical aspects of digital design and programming as he is working on paper. He built the interactive Vectorpark website early in the history of online Flash animation using self-taught ActionScript programming techniques to produce curious worlds for users to manipulate with mouse clicks (and now with fingers on updated mobile versions).
Above is a screenshot from one of the Vectorpark pieces, Feed the Head.
You can see a portfolio of drawings and paintings here and more drawings on his blog.
