Puzzling Art

We all have times where we fall apart, but we also work hard to pull ourselves together again. I've made a number of pieces of art about that sense of self at those times, or even the little times when you try to meditate, but your mind can't stop zooming on it's roller coaster. I use jigsaw puzzles, acrylic paint, and occasionally origami. [more inside]

Making a Menger sponge in stained glass

I spent the last six weeks taking a stained glass course from a local artist (Vavroch Glass Studio) and the culmination of that is a 15"x15" stained glass Menger sponge rendering that I'm absolutely delighted with. This is a writeup with pictures of the whole process from conception to completion.

Red Square, watercolor and pencil on paper, 6"x6" 12/15/18

This is a collection of 46 watercolor paintings, all different, made in sequence on the days of December 16th and 17th, 2018, as an exploration of some ideas about both serial art and the authority and reliability of an artist's description of their own work and working processes.

Male Tears: A collage comic book about thwarted privilege

A cursed relic of our revolting age, Male Tears remixes vintage comic book imagery into a verbo-visual slurry for your shame or amusement: forty pages of thwarted privilege, humiliating failure and unchecked emotions exploding into weeping and/or violence. [more inside]

Artpal!

Artpal! is a podcast I created about, well, art. Season 1's 9 episodes act as a guerrilla audioguide to a group of objects on display at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (although I wrote them with the idea that you could also just listen anywhere and look at images online if you wanted). Show's available on iTunes and Google Play, as well as streaming at the site. [more inside]

Random Generators

When I get bored, I make random generators. Mostly story/plot or art prompt generators, but there's also one for pub and tavern names, and a collaboration with Yoon Ha Lee on a Tarot-type card reading generator based on the Machineries of Empire series.

Working Through Grief with Shrine Making

In July of 2017 my mother died after a long time being sick. She and I always had a tremulous relationship, and since the late 90's I've been her care taker on and off. I had a lot of feelings about her passing, so I worked through them making art. [more inside]

Shtacks: Type a painting

I doodle on my iPad during my train commute. I finished painting the alphabet. So I made a site where you can type with paintings. Type in the grey text box to get an image. The image is resized to fit your browser window. On desktop browsers you can download the image as a PNG. Anything you type is appended to the URL, the back button works, and you can share the link with your image. Like this. [more inside]

Art by Josh Millard

I've been painting a lot lately, exploring in particular mathematical themes and especially variations on the Menger sponge. I'm proud of the progress I've made, and have built a simple site to show off my finished work: Art by Josh Millard.

I've also been writing about art process stuff on my blog, e.g. a step-by-step document of the execution of yesterday's new painting, Five Concentric Wireframe Cubes.

Learning How To Scream Again: Promoting Leftism for Artists and Writers

The culmination of a lot of conversation I've had with fellow artists, designers, and writers. How do we effectively sell Leftist ideology ? How did we get here? What does a new left art look like? What should it's goals be? What's the best way to achieve them?

Evening.Camera: Fragments of my life from twilight

I'm a photographer. I wanted to make more, better pictures, so I started going out a couple of evenings a week with my camera. I've found myself drawn to what I've pompously called "liminal light", as artificial lights take over from the daytime. There's a blog post about the first 100 days of the project here.

I've just completed a major revamp of my website, The Corey Press, where I keep all my weird wooden blockprints. Need some medieval alien abductions? Done! Old school Pokemon battles? Sure! More Cthulhu Mythos than you can shake a stick at? You betcha. I'm really proud of my newest piece, a Mothman-inspired ouija board.

Interactive video feedback simulator in WebGL

Basically what it says on the tin. Hopefully it works for mobile users, but you'll have the best experience on a full monitor. Warning: it's pretty easy to create bright, flashing patterns with it, so photosensitive folk be careful.

Painting math on the wall

I spent the last few days hand-painting a couple of fractal images—a Menger sponge and a Cantor set—on the wall of my home office. This is a writeup of how and why I did it, with some bonus thoughts on the weird nature of the fractal series behind the images.

Coding Sol Lewitt's Wall Drawings in Processing

Sol Lewitt created more than 1200 Wall Drawings during his life, developing the concepts behind the drawings and the instructions for creating them on a wall, but leaving the actual wall part to his draftsmen. The central conceit is that Sol's art was in the conception of the work, and leaving the execution to the draftsmen would (1) not change the original and (2) leave open the possibility of joyous happenstance. Well, I'm Sol's newest draftsman! I spent a lot of time finding the original instructions for dozens of Wall Drawings and now I'm coding them in Processing. I'm posting the visual output on this here tumblr. I asked a question about this last year.

2015 Daily Art Project

For the year of 2015, I and my friend Sheala drew our butts off. The premise was simple. Every two weeks we'd start a new theme and draw/sketch based off said theme. Except for Saturdays, because everyone needs a break. At the linked page, you can find a complete list of the themes, along with links to the images and a short Exit Interview as we discuss what we learned and experienced.

Stained Glass & Bike Taxidermy

This year I participated in my first Open Studios event. It was the culmination of nearly four years of learning stained glass and the first time I've ever shown my work publically. In preparation for the event, I put together a website and my brother, a graphic designer, created a logo for my studio. In addition to glass, I brought along several pieces of my bicycle taxidermy. I created a couple of these years ago after seeing Picasso's Cabeza de Toro, but received quite a bit of encouragement to produce more for show. [more inside]
