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

    Onward Musicians to Bremen

    Inspired by a brief bout of crowdsourcing on Twitter

    Imagination is the rainbow we cross to escape from our own subservience, our “use value” to the world. So says the donkey, the dog, the cat, and the rooster, who imagined the music they would bring to Bremen.

    Just practicing a higher-angle position, when suddenly it called for that cross-cut line of motion. Trying to listen to my compositions, when I can.

    Here we rest

    This is one of those drawing where I feel like the rough sketch lines (not pictured) were somehow more compelling than the final product 😕

    Anyway, have this drawing for solace. 🌲🔥🌲
