A 5-star online review of "Girl With the Golden Veins", February, 2023 - "There is no one like Corinne Whitaker. Her book is not only beautiful to look at, but it challenges your way of thinking about the world and makes you wish that you could spend even just a few minutes inside of her brilliant and creative mind."

For our book, "Beyond" - a 5 star review - "A visual and written journal into the mind of Corinne Whitaker. This lady has so many talents outside of her books, and yet she finds time to write down her thoughts for us to share, along with stunning images of her visual creations. Whitaker has an uncanny knack of blending all human emotions and reactions. Humor, Irony, Reality, Horror, Banality. The list is endless, and she executes this with perfection. And apart from the peek into her thinking in the written words, there are the pages of superb art works she has created that demand attention and interpretation, which may change on subsequent viewings. This is a book to go back to again and again."

Also for "Beyond" with 5 stars - "Beautiful, also thought provoking. Woah. That was my first reaction to the art images in Whitaker's latest book. In second and subsequent looks at the images you see human forms that bring to mind the organic behind ourselves, call it our souls. The brief poetry before each image gives concrete philosophy of human's connection. Grab this go-back-to book at this huge discount!"

"Corinne Whitaker: Digital Mindscapes, a must-see exhibit at the Monterey Museum of Art...The pieces on display feel like art from a mind released from the limits of the physical world – as if the electricity between the folds of the brain has been captured within a frame. They are psychedelic, layered, chaotic and digital. The artist, 87-year-old Corinne Whitaker, is a pioneer in the digital art world who began exploring art using personal computers as far back as the 1980s. In 1994, she founded the online art journal Digital Giraffe, the same year in which she visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to give what is considered the first lecture on digital art. She has since been one of the medium’s leading voices and her exhibit at the Monterey Museum of Art is not to be missed. [CN]".

Official Review: Bully Bully Bang Bang by Corinne Whitaker, Online Book Club, 13 Sept 2020

Regarding our Special Covid Virus project online:

"Every giraffe & every giraffe love sends you hugs of gratitude for this inspiring, amazing realization of this dramatic, perilous moment. With love & thanks, you are a guiding spirit of our times!"

"In the summer of 1960 I was swept away by the Jackson Pollocks on display in Peggy Guggenheim's Venice home. In the summer of 1995, that same feeling of awe came back for only the second time when I first saw the work of Corinne Whitaker in her Carmel studio. I suspect that Whitaker's work appeals to me and many others trying to make sense of the information age for much the same reasons that Pollock's work resonated with men and women trying to make sense of the Post-World War II turmoil: in periods of social upheaval a few artists are able to produce new metaphors and new techniques that capture the anxieties present in every transitional period.

Whitaker is a non-linear innovator in art. Rather than approach art quietly by the "back staircase" of convention, she has stormed the main gates of our sensibilities with the tools and language of modern science. All artists stand on the shoulders of predecessors. But it seems to me that Whitaker has not been content to stand: she has leapt off in order to propel herself in unexplored directions."

Regarding our 23rd book, "Wanting":

"A major contribution to our sense of beauty, design, identity, achieved with grace and style."

Dr. Richard Falk, Professor Emeritus of International Law at Princeton University, 2016

"No More War" is a powerful message for you to put out there because warfare today is impossible to live with. The planet grows smaller by the hour. I dare say we are in a state of critical mass over national boundaries, and they should not exist on a finite planet with no where to turn but spin us round with our backs and eyes to the sun. After all, we have journeyed four billion plus years to now. What "now" you say, with camera and iPad in hand, with straight-forward imagery as you feel it course through your veins? Very brave indeed and so deeply felt that they make their way onto aluminum panels that apparently reflect back on you some mirror of a world that teeters between chaos and structured hope. If "people" look back at you through the forms and imagery that you conjure then it's a phenomenon that speaks to you - to danger - to the crisis that mounts.

I greatly admire what you are grasping with your art, and may it thrive! Thanks, Corinne, for caring.

"Reactions: a Review of Didgeridoo: Corinne Whitaker picked up a machete and chopped her own path through the art world underbrush many years ago (39, to be exact). That's when she ventured into digital painting - not creating pretty pictures, but challenging explorations of psyche and eternal issues of religion and metaphysics.

Whitaker's newest book of art and poetry, "Once Upon a Didgeridoo", addresses questions in both genres. Here are representative snippets of Whitaker's poetry; buy the book to enjoy the accompanying art.

"Are you given a choice / Between isn't and is? / If it's all about choice / Will my ghost have a voice?"

And: "Will the Buddha fly / Through a Baptist sky / Will the Yahweh cry / At the death of I? "
