Handmade is the new black
After many years of artists migrating from handmade to digital (for example in the world of scrapbooking), it appears that things are taking a turn in the opposite direction. Take a look at the rise of sites like Moleskinerie and Notebookism, and systems such as the Hipster PDA. The latest Computer Arts Projects magazine is devoted to the melding of digital and handmade arts that is going on at the moment.
This posting is one of the reasons I started a blog – because I was surprised that nobody else had already written it. Oh, and the cardboard computer was a surprise for a colleague who was on holiday.
