While putting together the new work for the New Orleans Surrealism series I've been encountering similar themes. There are so many pieces in the series that inevitably there will be similarities as to the content. The goal is to keep the individual pieces as different from each other as possible without losing the focus of the overall theme. Here are three views of the altar areas of three of New Orleans biggest churches. See how each one is radically different from each other.
By becoming aware of specific elements within a larger body of work, you have the ability to mix and match different pieces together under those common threads. This is not only helpful to the artist who wants a better understanding of how to put a series together, but it is also an excellent way to get a galleries attention.

The Creative Ecosystem
What Are We?
Since its creation five years ago immortalartist has sought to be different from most other creative websites. We wanted to break the rules for how creativity was perceived online.
Static Information Flow
Most content on a web is static. It does not move or change with the users of the site. These are static flat websites. "This apple is red" will still mean the apple is red five years later. We see information as a flow. Creativity is what creates the flow and in turn the apple becomes whatever color we want it to be every moment of its existence on the site.
Emotion Information Flow
What is social media? Social media is the exact opposite of a static website. Put into its simplest terms "Social Media is Emotional Information Flow". On social media, the apple may remain red, but we are sad, happy and angry about it.
Every post you make or respond to on social media represents both a flow of information and a flow of the users emotions. Sometimes creativity is added. The apple is blue because I say it is! But it is not the rule that it is always applied.
The Creative Ecosystem
We are a creative ecosystem. We employ information that helps creatives both learn and promote themselves. We employ a constant flow of creativity which changes the information content constantly. And we employ emotions that allows those who interact with it to see it an emotional gut level.
