Adobe have now made the decision not to update Dreamweaver but to make it a subscription based product
Without doubt Dreamweaver has been the market leader in web page creation software. This product has launched many successful businesses in the past but now only the successful will be able to afford the updated versions – this seems a terrible shame and another nail in the coffin for the aspiring young dreamer / entrepreneur.
The move to subscriptions marks a big change for Adobe as it is introducing a subscription model for many of its most popular programs, including Photoshop and Dreamweaver.
Up to now, customers had perpetual access by paying a single fee for Adobe’s Creative Suite. From next month, continuing access to the programs, either individually or as a whole, will demand a monthly fee. Standalone versions will still be available but will not be upgraded. The change was announced at Adobe’s annual Max conference, at which it details the latest updates to its products. From BBC News

“Allergy #11″ was started in November 2003 and completed in April 2011. This painting was originally created for a solo exhibition in The Queen’s Theatre during 2003 but was not exhibited due to lack of wall space.
A solo exhibition is an exhibition of the work by only one artist. Having solo shows of one’s artwork marks the achievement of success. My shows are usually of my current work or pieces from a single time period, or representative work from different periods in my development. This illusion of success doesn’t mean I am successful – I am actually sinking deeper and deeper into poverty so if you can help me keep a roof over my head please make an offer for this painting here .
1978: I once had a girlfriend called Anne who wore ‘Charlie’ perfume. Every time we came close I sneezed. This was not conducive to a passionate affair. Her ‘big’ permed hair and ‘page three’ figure was always out of reach, until we discovered I was allergic to her bottled smell….later we discovered I was allergic to latex.

There are some #methodologies in art that make sense for business:
The pointlessness of producing art for decoration and pleasure is a perverted masturbation fantasy and process for the deluded mind. Art and its prettiness have no place in any intellectual society – it has no place in a capitalist society … Continue reading →
Institutional Traits 2012 The aesthetics of failure is not total destruction; it is the enjoyment of failure. The degradation of an image is a metaphor for aging and decay – for something to be perfect requires a belief in romanticism. To expect perfection is to turn your back on realism.
To produce a image that is better than the image of the mind is to give rise to a product of catastrophe. (To achieve exactness by design and skill is to reach a point of exhaustion and famine.) It is therefore acceptable to assume that an artist that is categorized as a genius has failed more successfully than one who is mediocre.

Methodology doesn’t describe specific methods; nevertheless it does specify several processes that need to be followed. These processes constitute a generic framework. They may be
broken down in sub-processes, they may be combined, or their sequence may change… Continue reading →

Rediscovering the printing process after nearly 40 years has been an interesting process – disappointingly modern inks are not as rich in color (earthy colors are very plastic like) and modern water-based inks don’t become part of the surface, they … Continue reading →
Contemporary artists have extended the boundaries of painting considerably to include; collage, different materials such as sand, cement, straw or wood for their texture. Juxtaposing images and materials, either as a collage, printing or painting is not simply a decorative process it is a complicated exercise. The mind always tries to create a narrative between images and materials. The juxtaposition of arbitrary marks, color, photographs etc. will always tease and trick the mind into rationalizing what it is trying to process and attempt to make physical world references – in other words make sense of what it is trying to analyze.
Since the proliferation of computers, painting could be argued to have migrated to the digital age (world). There is a massive community of artists who use computers to paint color onto a digital canvas using programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter, Gimp and others. Does this mean that new printing techniques have now become absorbed into painting methodologies and practices?
This meshing together of processes, unrelated imagery and the breaking down of barriers cannot be seen as a shortcut to intellectual credibility. The dedicated thought process that goes with the creative procedure should be one of intense reasoning. It is therefore unrealistic to expect the uneducated masses to use the computers prescriptive decision making to create ‘real art’. The birth of Photoshop has enabled everybody to create ‘non-intellectual’ versions of Rauschenberg (and Warhol) – this is not ART.
“Painting is the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or other medium to a surface. The application of the medium is commonly applied with a brush. In art, the term painting describes both the act and the result of the action. These same criteria can be used to describe printing.”
