Flux Mix is a collaboration between myself, the artist Kevin Hogan and my friend Chad Pry.
The basics of the Flux Mix project is this: See what happens when art starts making itself, without any aesthetic over-site by humans.
The project started out as an experiment, with that simple, and uniquely disturbing thought in mind.
The outcome is a never-ending art piece, in which you will never see the same thing twice. In fact, you can open it up on a million computers simultaneously and no two computers will display the same thing. In short, whatever an individual viewer is looking at is a unique experience.
Right now - it operates on about 40 individual elements, which are chosen, mixed together and moved around at complete random. As the project moves forward, the elements that Flux Mix will "choose" from will reach into the hundreds.
Very few people have seen this thing in action. Today is the first release to the public at large.
Thanks to Nate Williams and Illustration Mundo for giving Drawger big props and a nod by flowing some of the content here straight into the excellent Mundo world. Even though not all Drawger articles will be fed to the marvelous Mundo machine, certain ones will. It's up to the people here which ones flow Mundo-side. One thing I'm certain of, Drawger will not disappoint.
It's absolutely phenomenal what's happened here at Drawger since the beta testing started six months ago. The remarkable people here have put this site on the map. Group hug! I love this place and everything it does for me (he admits with a certain sniffle and a handy Kleenex). I hope the arrivals from Illustration Mundo find it just as inspiring.
It's still seems a bit unclear whether Billy DeBeck created the word "Google" with his remarkable strip Barney Google, but one thing's for certain, he sure did make the word popular. Without a doubt, DeBeck did indeed introduce a few other popular phrases along the way and influenced many that doodled along afterwards.
DeBeck in the Drawgerpedia for fellow Drawgers to edit and update as knowledge allows.
