Scribbles, photos and other scribbles are now becoming an everyday part of everyday life in Ireland.
With the rise of social media and the availability of high-quality digital art tools, many artists are turning to digital art as an alternative to the old fashioned pencil and paper.
The new scratch disk is a simple and versatile tool that can be used for creating original drawings or for creating an artwork with digital ink.
“We’re seeing a lot more digital art being made, especially with digital tools.
The tools have come along and it’s really important that artists use the tools they have,” said Pat Flynn, an artist and designer from Limerick.”
Digital art has really opened up a whole new world and you can create art digitally, it’s more efficient, it saves time and the whole idea is really that it’s a tool that allows you to be creative and create,” Mr Flynn said.”
I think there’s a huge opportunity in making art with digital, but we also need to remember the art that is being created with pen and paper and digital art,” he said.
It’s a trend that’s spreading around the world, with artists and digital artists working together on projects.
“People are starting to start making art using digital tools and we’re seeing artists use their digital art to create artwork, especially on social media platforms like Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook,” said Mr Flynn.
The concept of scratch disks dates back to the mid-1980s, when artists and designers used them to draw a logo onto paper or other materials to mark a concept.
In the early 1990s, the format was taken up by the art community with the advent of digital ink, but it’s been on a slow rise since then.
While scratch disks have existed for decades, they’re still a relatively new technology and it was only in the last year or so that the industry started to make their mark.
Mr Flynn is the founder of the online community, The Art of Art, where he has a growing number of followers.
He said he and his colleagues have created a variety of projects using the format, including the design for a series of digital books about the history of Ireland, a work of contemporary art, a digital portrait of a group of artists and a digital book of art.
“You can have a whole bunch of digital artwork on a scratch disk and you have a print of the artwork you’ve done, it gives you a digital asset to have,” Mr Foley said.
