What the -f is tail -f (pronounced “tail dash f”)? It’s a UNIX command. What is a UNIX command? It’s a utility found on unix-based operations systems of servers. Still don’t know? It’s techie stuff. It’s an application like, (gasp!) Windows, but on a server. Well, it’s actually more like DOS on a server. Anyway, it’s tech-speak.
I’ve considered myself an artist since my earliest memories. It was my goal in life coming out of high school, but things got in the way and I sought a “real” job. I became a web developer and I love what I do. I love programming so much because it is a form of art. When I really get in the groove of programming it has all the satisfaction and gratification of creating a piece of art. Here I am, 30+ years later, creating art again. And it feels fantastic. I call my art endeavor tail -f | ART (pronounced “tail dash f”) after a UNIX command. It merges both my worlds nicely. I work mostly in acrylic, but dabble in mixed media and drawing. I love having art be such a large part of my life now.
