Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Hello :) dA is where I share collaborative art and find most of my collaborators, especially for EC. You can also find my art in these places;
My Patreon - www.patreon.com/immysmith
Buy me a ko-fi - www.ko-fi.com/immysmith
My shop - www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ImmySmith…
T-shirts - www.redbubble.com/people/immys…
I'm also at @DrImmySmith on twitter

I’m an artist, and a former neuroscientist & data analyst. The oddest things in nature and the curious intricacy of biological processes inspire me to make art.

Oh and I like to make jokes about marmots every time someone gets too serious...
Interests
Happy spring y'all! I hope you're all well.  I don't spend much of my day at a computer anymore, so apols for my absence, and you can keep up with me more frequently if you like via Twitter where my handle is @ DrImmySmith. I can work twitter on my phone but not dA... I'm such a luddite :XD:

I recently won a 10 month residency and so now I work as a resident artist in a brain tumour reserch lab. The project aims to connect the stories of brain tumour researchers and patients through art. You can fin out more about that here - connectingnarratives.tumblr.co… and I promise I will update my dA gallery when I get a mo. Special thanks are due to my collaborator ScottMan2th who has been a part of the journey that lead me to this residency :D

Its an amazing residency, but super-busy. I'm looking forward to some R&R over easter so I can catch up with my Exquisite corpses with LuckyRossMartin and Keneru92 some more. I'm slow but I get there in the end ;)

I'm missing all my dA friends and collaborators, who've supported me through my PhD and beyond, and shared so much fun - y'all know who you are. Especially all the Exquisite Corpser's, and chriseastmids, ArtByCher, SalHunter, aruarian-dancer, Bernardumaine, MBKKR, TazPoltorak, TRANSMICHION... aaaaarg there's too many people I miss! I hope we can connect through other networks, I'll try and get my rear in gear on dA when I can. Hugs to y'all xxx

Drawing practice
My art space is being renovated at the moment, with a nice crip-friendly floors so I don't keep tripping over! XD It means I can't paint and all my ECs are safely packed up. But obvs I'm still drawing ;) You can find out about all my recent drawing & see more art & videos on my Patreon at www.patreon.com/immysmith

Cryptic Alphabet: Kakapo WIP collage
Hello dA friends! Although I'm not around here much these days, I am still working, drawing, collaborating, and also now have a Patreon site! So I thought I'd drop by and spam you with some current art. My current print project is called 'Cryptic Alphabet'. It's an illuminated alphabet where each letter's artwork is based on an animal that uses cryptic camouflage, & which has a common name beginning with that letter. Here are some WIP pics of letter K for Kakapo - a rare flightless parrot with feathers that give it amazing camouflage amongst forest foliage! You can see more on my Patreon at www.patreon.com/immysmith

Test pieces for 'Emergent Crypsis'
Hello dA friends! Although I'm not around here much these days, I am still working, drawing, collaborating, and also now have a Patreon site! So I thought I'd drop by and spam you with some current art. I'm collaborating with generative artist Anders Hoff aka inconvergent inconvergent.net/ (Norway) rn. Our collaboration is called 'Emergent Crypsis', and these are some of the test pieces. I'm imagining how life might evolve to camouflage itself on human-made substrates - in this case Anders' generative art! These are animals I have painted over patterns Anders made by designing an algorithm that is then executed by a computer. You can see more on my Patreon at www.patreon.com/immysmith

Generative Drawings
Hello dA friends! Although I'm not around here much these days, I am still working, drawing, collaborating, and also now have a Patreon site! So I thought I'd drop by and spam you with some current art :iconcarameldansenplz: I'm collaborating with generative artist Anders Hoff aka inconvergent inconvergent.net/ (Norway) rn, as well as having some EC's on the go. But I've also been experimenting with rules-based generative drawing myself, inspired by that collaboration! SO here is some of that. All these patterns are made using sets of rules, either with/without steps based on randomly generated numbers, to chose how dots/dashes/shapes are drawn. 

You can see more on my Patreon at www.patreon.com/immysmith or get postcards of these drawings at etsy.me/2v01wH4

hello, i am  back in my original 2009 account now,  seems  weird, thinking,  hmm,   7  years of  hogwarts, lego builds, and i am  back  making hogwarts again for another 7 years, with the new #fantasticbeastsandwheretofindthem  movies ,

so i  am  back, re-aquainting myself  to all 7  year  accounts,   wow, i  thought people who were on here  for 15 - 16  years  had a good tim eline, i sort of,  jumped around in my 16 accounts htat i have now, so i thought, ah, it is  time  i stuck  with the  7, hogwarts, and  did a  retrospective, HOgwarts lego  look back on  all the  lego forms. squee.  yeah, imagine   deviantart onpeoples  phones in the  future,  i guess  deviantart will always be  a CPU  hard drive,  storage, to image  application,not  enough room on a phone for all the  deviantart memoryi  guess, so,  in th e next  7  years, .. it  will be  interesting  seeing the  change in  internet  dynamics, .  i know in 2009, th e dA changed . and in 2012, and now,  it  all seems to  have made it  as a social interactive  site now,  horray for   dA.
