The digital canvas: discovering the art studio in your computer
The computer is an art studio in itself, for those who know where to look and how to use it. Inspirational yet highly practical, "The Digital Canvas" explores contemporary computer-generated art and shows how the computer can be a flexible and surprising tool for visual experimentation. This is not an instruction manual, but the digital equivalent of a survey of techniques and materials in the fine arts, emphasizing creativity and visual thinking over rote learning. It takes the elements common to all visual art and shows how they can be deployed using digital resources. "The Digital Canvas" is one of three titles this spring from Abrams Studio, our new imprint dedicated to providing artists and designers with innovative, affordable books to help them improve their skills.
