“I’m Seeing Rabbits!!!” by Richard F. Yates

A few nights ago, during my closing shift as a delivery driver, I was traveling down an ill lit stretch of road when I, momentarily, thought I saw a large (like golden retriever large) RABBIT run across the road in front of my car… Perhaps I was experiencing a bit of MICROSLEEP… It was almostContinue reading ““I’m Seeing Rabbits!!!” by Richard F. Yates”

“Why am I Playing MINECRAFT???” by Richard F. Yates

So—as an artist and a writer, it’s important to know how to manage your time properly, right? Am I right??? And, knowing that I have half a dozen projects in the works, I probably spent this weekend working on new paintings or editing one of the books I’m trying to complete or finalizing the rulesContinue reading ““Why am I Playing MINECRAFT???” by Richard F. Yates”

“What Does ‘CRYPTO-ART’ Mean to Me?” by Richard F. Yates [Really long ass post…]

I’ve made “BAD” digital art for a long time…in fact, since I got my first Apple IIc back in 1983 or 1984. (Back then, it was all VECTOR graphics, and I used Basic or Pro-Basic to write programs that would make these little “lines” move around the screen. It was exciting and new (although someContinue reading ““What Does ‘CRYPTO-ART’ Mean to Me?” by Richard F. Yates [Really long ass post…]”

“Monday is Upon Us (And We are Skeptical)” by Richard F. Yates

[Posted yesterday, 19 Aug. 2019, on my Steemit blog, but I think it’s still relevant, if for no other reason than I still like the drawing! —RFY] Greetings folks, it’s Monday again… (Seems like this happens every damn week.) And it was a busy weekend… Saturday, Mariah (the “Wife”) and Frankie (the “Older Daughter”) andContinue reading ““Monday is Upon Us (And We are Skeptical)” by Richard F. Yates”

“New Crypto-Art! (Responses to the Times) [Warning: This One is a Bit Edgy]” by Richard F. Yates

[This piece was originally posted on my Steemit.com blog on 7 Aug. 2019. I post on Steemit EVERY DAY. No skipping. I haven’t missed a day in something like six or seven months…] Howdy folks! Been doing my thing lately, seeing weirdo sights, working late nights, and pickin’ fights (mostly with myself…) Between the upsContinue reading ““New Crypto-Art!

“The Long Beach Pre-Show!” by Richard F. Yates

[What follows below are the three fairly short bits that I wrote building up to and during my and my family’s recent trip to Long Beach, Washington, USA. These little slabs of NON-COM, which include artwork and weirdness and complaints and possibly even some primitive humor, originally appeared on my Steemit.com blog on these days:Continue reading ““The Long Beach Pre-Show!” by Richard F. Yates”

“Crypto Art for the End of July (New Work Available at MakersPlace!)” by Richard F. Yates

LET’S TALK ABOUT CRYPTO ART (WHAT IS IT?): Some of you may be new to all this stuff (like me), so here is my quick attempt at explaining what Crypto-Art is all about. Crypto-Art is a neat new thing where artists can put their initials on a piece of digital art and make certifiably rareContinue reading ““Crypto Art for the End of July (New Work Available at MakersPlace!)” by Richard F. Yates”

“No Exit” by Richard F. Yates

This is a digitally modified photo I took, recently, (at the Cowlitz County Fair) of a “dark ride” (which seemed to have some minor rollercoaster elements to it.) I didn’t catch the NAME of the ride, but I loved the blacklight effects and the “horror show” aesthetic. Unfortunately, I didn’t TRY the ride, but itContinue reading ““No Exit” by Richard F. Yates”

“NON-COM-ARTS (A Community for That OTHER Kind of Art)” by Richard F. Yates

[I originally posted this on my Steemit.com blog on the 10th of July, 2019. It was the initial SEED from which this project has sprouted. The concept came from the relatively recent invention of TOKENS and COMMUNITIES based on the Steem Engine, a THING that let’s people create new crypto-currency tokens on the STEEM blockchain.Continue reading ““NON-COM-ARTS (A Community for That OTHER Kind of Art)” by Richard F. Yates”
