Digital Art: Woman in Cowboy Hat Dancing

The techniques of digital art are used extensively by the mainstream media in advertisements, and by film-makers to produce special effects. Desktop publishing has had a huge impact on the publishing world, although that is more related to graphic design. It is possible that general acceptance of the value of digital art will progress in much the same way as the increased acceptance of electronically produced music over the last three decades.

Digital art can be purely computer-generated (such as fractals and algorithmic art) or taken from other sources, such as a scanned photograph or an image drawn using vector graphics software using a mouse or graphics tablet.

Though technically the term may be applied to art done using other media or processes and merely scanned in, it is usually reserved for art that has been non-trivially modified by a computing process (such as a computer program, microcontroller or any electronic system capable of interpreting an input to create an output); digitized text data and raw audio and video recordings are not usually considered digital art in themselves, but can be part of the larger project of computer art and information art.

Artworks are considered digital painting when created in similar fashion to non-digital paintings but using software on a computer platform and digitally outputting the resulting image as painted on canvas.

Andy Warhol created digital art with the help of Amiga, Inc. in July 1985 when he publicly introduction at Lincoln Center Amiga paint software.

Smoking Room: Gitanes Swiss Cigarette

Gitanes (Gypsy women “) is a French cigarette brand, sold in many varieties of strengths and packages. It is currently owned by Imperial Tobacco following its acquisition of Altadis in January 2008 after being owned by SEITA before. Originally rolled with darker or brown (brown) tobacco, in contravention of “blondes”. In honor of the name, the cover sports a silhouette of a Spanish gypsy woman playing the tambourine. The cans have always been the black, blue and white.

There is a distinction between “fair” style power Gitanes, and the classic style of Gitanes Brunes, both of which are sold in Europe. The classic Gitanes Brunes tobacco reached its features and distinctive “bite” by using a flued fire method of curing tobacco, rice and a “type of rolling paper which differs from most cigarettes. The result was a cigarette who was both strong flavor and a distinctive aroma.

Gitanes Blondes are available, filtered, light and regular. Gitanes Brunes are available in 70mm, filtered and unfiltered.

Production in France recently arrested with a plant remains operational in the Netherlands. This is mainly due to higher levies on tobacco imposed by the French government following the advice of health, which forced the price of French cigarettes levels to those of the United States, with brands more aggressively promoted such as Marlboro now taking the majority market share.
