for a number of years now i have been developing the process of what I call Digotal Cloth
DIGITAL CLOTH is the result of an artful approach to surface design making art cloth and wearable art using digital tools along with traditional techniques, albeit sometimes reinventing those techniques. Digital Cloth IS NOT fabric design.
The one notable difference from art cloth is that Digital Cloth is constructed and therefore adds an architectural element. This zzllows for the addition of textural elements not possible in art cloth.

This definition is from my book which I hope will be out this summer. the photos are a series of one of the earliest pieces. by chance, Dijan Ccvervaal posted a photo of a fragment of an old textile. i took that fragment and used it to develop the three images shiwb which you'll see in the book how they become digital cloth.

Another sketch

I've been working on a small series of color sketches for my journal in anticipation of AUTUMN. It is the season of Dionysius, the god opf inspiration, and I have alsways felt most open to the proxcess during this season. Most every artist has a brief period during every year where things seem to happen without effort and it takes the rest of the year to catch up. Although Autumn is a time of fruition, it is a time of transformation. The leaves that died and decayed last year are reborn into the new wine. The leavings of harvest are burnt and nourish the ground for the seeds that slumber until the resurrection of the blond assassin.
