PCB Paintings: Maker-Artists Requests for Feedback | #ArtTuesday
We previously blogged David I. Herman’s PCB paintings in February. The same makers are requesting feedback on what direction to take the series. I personally don’t think made-to-order artworks would be very cost effective, but could see people purchasing works from a standalone store on Etsy or similar marketplace. Is there a maker-centric place for ‘crafty’ nerdy & hacker/maker items for the home? I guess the impulse of ‘ahhh I’ll just make that myself’ takes over but surely these artworks are worth saving some etching solution. (That bee artwork is pretty rad and would go great in any community garden!) If you have ideas, chime in on their Hackaday post here.
We are trying to figure out what direction to take this blend of technology and art — should we offer pieces for sale, or offer a service for making your own pieces from your own artwork, for instance. We’re certainly going to continue to explore it from a technology and art creative point of view. If you feel inclined, please take a moment to leave a comment, we are interested in your feedback!
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
