Attention Followers of the blog EYESEAT. The fact remains, we're already just about midway through the month of May in the year Twenty-Seventeen. The origins of visions as seen through our optic nerves: where do they arrive from, if not starlight? In our waking dreams here on this electromagnetic spinning planet, how did we come to open our eyes and see? Please excuse me while I go refill my coffee. Today's watercolor illustration, "baby Griffon", has been posted here before. It's a more recent effort, in terms of the Two-thousands and Twenty-teens, although it strives to capture something on paper that was never meant to be. I tell you, I thought about this until I was in danger of becoming permanently anchored into the ground as a human tree. Stay tuned in the following weeks for new artwork to be scanned and uploaded here. In the meantime, have fun exploring all the hidden hyperlinks I've scattered about to while away the online hours. Believe me, no matter how dated this site you must repeat to yourself you never stumbled upon may appear as you read these very words, I'm still here, the hidden shadow behind the lurkers.

*This painting was done for Vincent Daemon's "Saturday Morning Flash Fiction Special" TRAP - only on
the Freezine of Fantasy & Science Fiction

The image you see ABOVE, is the "Improved scan".

The image you see BELOW is the result
of an inferior scan on an apple, where
I couldn't get the settings adjusted right.

EYESEAT is accustomed to displaying
higher quality scans of watercolors.

The artist is currently searching through
his growing archive of originals
so that he may re-scan the 4" x 6"
glossy photo print 'Trapped'.

In the meantime, the scanned image
below--inferior due to it's having
only acquired the surface topography
of the original illustration, and
furthermore--rendering it's colors
with a matte finish and flattening
it out; when the better scan goes up
to replace it, the difference between
the two should be clear to see.

The glossy photo print paper absorbs
the bright, dark and deep colors into a
glassiness achieving a holographic depth.

Stay Tuned for the introduction
of the better, improved, real 3D
glossy photo print scan as rendered
optimally by pixillated light. . .
