My new Tumblr art project is a response to recent revelations about massive government and corporate surveillance. I'm posting a series of images, each containing an anaglyph 3D picture of an anonymous model, and a QR-encoded, PGP-encrypted email message that I can't read. A group of other people are writing the messages to each other, and my site is the delivery mechanism. With red/cyan 3D glasses, you can see "through" the noise of each image and glimpse some of the depths beyond. But only the intended message recipient can decrypt the embedded text. [more inside]
I like to take old postcards and make little collages and doodles on them, then send them to friends and family. It occurred to me that if I was gonna spend a bunch of time making these things, maybe I ought to post them online somewhere. And, well, I was bored at work today so I scanned a bunch of them and put 'em on this Tumblr. [more inside]
A cool way to find new photos to reblog to your art tumblr
Tulpendiebe is the companion tumblr for my novel Kino, dedicated to Weimar Republic art, people, music, and events -- especially German silent film, along with anything related to the world of the book (which I mentioned here before.) And because copyright, piracy, and remixing are among the themes of Kino, I am inviting anyone to participate and send their own artwork, music, photos, and writing inspired by the tumblr. You can see submissions so far here.
Mapstalgia is a new blog collecting people's drawn-from-memory maps of video game worlds and levels. Zeldas and Marios; detailed Final Fantasy cartography and sketched Contra recollections; crayon Kings Quest and graph paper Castlevania. Submissions are open, draw something yourself and send it in!

I have loads of time on my hands at work, so I pass the time by drawing. These are those drawings, mostly. [more inside]
