“On Exhibition!!! (In Real Life)” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

Howdy Humans (and other Entities)! Here’s a silly thing that I made. I’m still experimenting with how I might combine physical media, text, drawing, and digital manipulation into a single piece of work. This was yesterday’s experiment. (It’s not meant to be a “FINISHED MASTERPIECE,” only a “can this work?” [Felt pen, paint pen, linerContinue reading ““On Exhibition!!! (In Real Life)” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)”

“Selecting The Future (From Various Options)” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

Man… It seems like I’ve been really busy lately. I’m a doodler and a scribbler. I like to draw in my little notebook and write wistful journal notes about this and that, but since my return to THE COMPUTER, I’ve been burning my brain-power trying to catch up on all the projects that I neglectedContinue reading ““Selecting The Future (From Various Options)” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)”

“The SHOCKING World of Idiosyncratic NFTs!” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

My oh my… It seems like FOREVER since I’ve taken the time to mint a new NFT, and for those who were looking the wrong direction last time I committed pixels and computing power to the indeliblification of concept + visualization, here’s how I play that game: NFTs make the perfect ARCHIVE for weird thoughts,Continue reading ““The SHOCKING World of Idiosyncratic NFTs!” by Richard F.

“Vacation! (All We Ever Wanted!) Zine” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

Howdy Humans! Knowing the importance of pleasing the wife, I sat down today (despite a STRONG urge to do a new radio show) and put together a new zine showcasing the photos I captured (with my phone) on our extended, two-week vacation. This zine is heavy on the visuals and light on those pesky words,Continue reading ““Vacation! (All We Ever Wanted!) Zine” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)”

“DJing a Company Picnic!” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

For those who don’t know, that little piece of media in the photo above is known as a MINIDISC! It’s a mostly obsolete technology, but the dang things still work! I started working with Music & More DJs somewhere around 1998, and these little disks were the primary sources for the tunes I played atContinue reading ““DJing a Company Picnic!” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)”

“Free PDF Zine for Funky Folks!” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

After visiting the SF Museum of Modern Art AND City Lights bookstore AND-AND this cool comic shop in Ashland, Oregon, that sold zines and underground books (I can’t remember the name, unfortunately), I felt the urge to just make some ARTZ. You can see in this zine the obvious influence of some of the abstractContinue reading ““Free PDF Zine for Funky Folks!” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)”

“I’m BAAAACK!” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

Did you miss me? It’s good to be back home again. Hello to any NEW folks out there in DIGITAL LAND (William Gibson called it “Cyberspace,” but we’ll forgive him.) If this is your first encounter with my rambling shenanigans and primitivist artworkia, don’t take anything you are about to encounter TOO seriously. Just goContinue reading ““I’m BAAAACK!” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)”

“The Walls Are Fiction” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

The point… Is there a point? I’m just doing a digital collage—testing embedding images from an online image repository… They’ve shown up in the preview, so I’m guessing they will show up in published post, too! (Right?) Nothing in the universe could prepare us for all that fun stuff that we’ll never get to seeContinue reading ““The Walls Are Fiction” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)”

“Notes and Thoughts on Being a Crypto Artist in 2021” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

[“Break All the Rules (004)” digital montage / collage by me from mixed media and photography.] —Unlike a “normal” drawing made on a napkin or on the back of a receipt pulled off the floor of a car, which will most likely be tossed into the trash once completed, I will often take my simpleContinue reading ““Notes and Thoughts on Being a Crypto Artist in 2021” by Richard F.
