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)

ACTIVE

  • Now on Mastodon Trying this thing out.
  • @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.
  • @miksimum Instagram Visual art, plus occasional snapshots
  • @miksimum Tumblr Reposting all my visual art from Instagram
  • Older Writing

  • 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
  • Older Art

  • 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

    The Supplicant

    Guardian of promises
    .
    .
    .
    Finishing up the ol #sketchbook and trying to build on old work with ink. It’s taken me 40 years, but I now kind of feel like I can trust my hand and my eye. I think the next step in my art is improving my entry and exit points… deciding what I need to start, hope to spend the time I have, and when to let things be finished.

    High window

    Found this deep in my photo archive. Don’t even know where I was when I took it. I’m enjoying the saturated colors. (at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
