I’ve been playing in an iPad app called LetterMPress. The touch and manipulation controls are a bit fussy. The printing process is simulated too, and quite delightfully ignores whatever expediencies might evolve out of a purely digital process. Like printing class back in art school.
Some folks have started a media and Twitter campaign to bring the CBC show Q, and radio host Jian Gomeshi to London to do a broadcast. I thought I would make a bunch of Qs on my iPad and post them to the #jianinldnont twitter stream.
I had intended that I would create an image, tweet it and delete it. Some drawing apps have direct to Twitter connections. Otherwise the process required exporting to iPhoto app and tweeting from there. Well, of course photo stream caught every new import and backed them up anyway. Then iPhoto app starts to balk at connecting to Twitter – other apps connected just fine. Maybe Twitter, or the photo service decided I was spamming? Who knows. So now I pull the images from photo stream and have to tweet them from my Mac.
@3oh6 view full profile → decided to collect them to a Flikr stream. So i am now also sending them to mine, and sharing them with Bring Q to London Ontario! So, ironically, I have to back them up in order to share them.
Use these images freely.
Update December 7: https://picasaweb.google.com/107162781169108803437/QsForQCampaign is 74 Q images inspired by contributing to this campaign. I’m certain ?) all the images are still on Flikr, but only 44 are displaying.
