iPhones, camera apps and Pop Art
I joined Flickr in October 2007. At the time it felt like I was a late comer.
As I have certain obsessive tendencies, I had resisted the urge to join for well over a year.
I was concerned I would go down that rabbit hole and not come up for air for….years. And that, folks, is why I’ve never tried meth and don’t have Angry Birds on my phone. Nopie nope. Can’t do it.
Ah, what wonders to behold.
But I did join and I’m glad I did. The dizzying scope and array of artistic talent and vision presented on Flickr is staggering.
One of the first people I noticed and marked as a contact on Flickr was Barky aka Mark Schreiner, and his was one of the first images I ‘favorited’.
Mark’s work has a fantastic, shall we say lurid quality I find very appealing. It’s fun, bright, cheeky and dripping with slurpy color goodness.
It finally dawned on me that I would like to know a little bit more about this person whose work I’ve been following for 5 years.
