Seikou Yamaoka spends a lot of time on his iphone. But he's not playing games or texting or reading, he's creating art
. He's also created some amazingly hypnotic time-lapse videos
of his works in creation, including this reproduction
of Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring
(done on an ipad mini rather than an iphone). Full gallery
of his digital finger painting. He also does traditional watercolours

In preparation for his then upcoming retrospective Transe Forme, Fondation Cartier recorded Moebius doing a series of digital drawings. Recorded in late 2010, these are some of, if not, the last recordings of Moebius drawing that we are likely to see.

is a morbidly funny webcomic from Russo-Canadian digital artist Vitaly Alexius
). Set in the starkly diaphanous wreckage
of post-nuclear Manhattan, it follows an eccentric contingent of Soviet soldiers
as they poke through the detritus of the past and contend with the mutants, cultists, aliens, and other horrors that inhabit the ruins. The comic's striking art style
is the result of an arduous process, using "Photoshop, live actors, dead actors, sexy assistants, greenscreen, a camera, and a Wacom tablet"
to composite "6 years worth of textures: 1 terabyte of stock footage, shot in real abandoned, forgotten places of our world." This multimedia ambition has burgeoned into plans for a community-powered animated/live-action web series
). While waiting for that to come together, be sure to spend some time on Kimmo Lemetti's
excellent Gone With the Blastwave
), a very similar webcomic project with a more subdued palette that turned out nearly fifty pages of richly-illustrated post-apocalyptic humor before going on indefinite hiatus.

The web is not a publication.
Web sites are not paper. Yet the current thinking of web design is that of the magazine, newspaper, book, or catalog. Visually, aesthetically, legally, the web is treated as a physical page upon which text and images are written.
The Shredder presents this global structure as a
chaotic, irrational, raucous collage. By altering the HTML code before the
browser reads it, the Shredder appropriates the data of the web,
transforming it into a parallel web. Content become abstraction. Text
becomes graphics. Information becomes art.
