Miksimum

is the index page for Jesse Miksic,
a digital dilettante dayjobbing as a UX designer

Loyally feeding the following beasts:

(follow and/or friend me -- if you appear to be a real person capable of passing the human tests, I will probably reciprocate)

General

  • @miksimum on Twitter A random sampling of thoughts and anxieties and signal-boosts and self-promotion.
  • Email me One of many ways of getting in touch, and the one I'm least likely to neglect for long periods.
  • Verbal

  • Benefit of the Doubt My outlet for Media Theory, also used to track other sources
  • @Miksimum on Medium Home to more politics and theory writing, plus reposts from Benefit of the Doubt
  • Berfrois.com A great site that kindly publishes my more polished critical writings
  • 366 Weird Movies An awesome site where I'm an on-and-off contributor
  • Goodreads My book reviews are long enough that I consider this an official creative outlet
  • Visual

  • @miksimum Tumblr Reposting all my visual art from Tumblr
  • @miksimum Instagram Visual art, plus occasional snapshots
  • Symbot on Flickr Digital photography, a hobby on temporary haitus
  • Overheated Media My short video work, on extended haitus since 2012
  • Recent Output

    Aggregated from Benefit of the Doubt and Tumblr, which gives the best representative sample of work in multiple media, I think

    Tried to do a “heart fox” (my daughter’s invention) but ended up with sort of a White Wolf style Heart Werewolf instead. Neither of us were super happy with it, lol

    Things against the house, Wisconsin.
    .
    .
    With a new puppy to walk, I’m starting to get to know the sunrise from the other side (I.e. after sleep, rather than before). Its a good time for attention — there’s an ambient focus in the air where the world seems more aware of itself, and you in it.

    Is the arrow aimed at the horizon? Or is the horizon aiming it at me?

    Trying to develop a personal iconography. There is something poignant about bare saplings in January.
