I started working on a new p5js sketch this week to make seamless background patterns. I started with an underlying grid and walked over each of those cells, adding a piece to this worm-like pattern. Some will continue on to the next cell. Others will terminate and start a new part of the pattern. I… Continue reading Pattern Tiles
I started working on a new series of drawings. Most are ink drawings with tightly packed lines. Creating these drawings is mesmerizing, working out from one point until the page is filled.
Destroying a drawing
I tried a small drawing experiment tonight. I started with an image that could go into my Coloring Book collection, then took it to a copier and distorted it on the glass. I added a bit to the distorted drawing with each iteration and then distorted that one. The results got more chaotic when more… Continue reading Destroying a drawing
A productive drawing week!
I had a productive drawing week this week. A few nights this week, I sat down to start drawing with something on in the background on Netflix or Disney+, and when I’d look up at the clock, it was 1 am or 2 am. They were mainly done with a Sharpie and a Pilot Precise… Continue reading A productive drawing week!
I’ve been working on more drawings to add to my Coloring Book collection on Objkt. Along with the squiggle drawings, I’ve been making a few to practice hatching and shading. I’ve been starting by creating a bunch of overlapping shapes and then figuring out the light angle. Then I added hatching to approximate the roundness… Continue reading Hatching practice
Scattered Pathways studies pathfinding on a grid. The grid can have one of two modes for each grid cell: a fill or a path. For the path, I run checks for north, east, west, and south cells to see if one is available. This check continues until the path can no longer find an available… Continue reading Scattered Pathways
Concordance is a study of color relationships in a grid structure. The p5.js sketch starts with a simple pallet. Then each color is “lerped” to get levels of transition between the colors. Each color of this newly expanded pallet walks over a grid of cells to simulate rows or columns of gradients. I opened this… Continue reading Concordance
For the #fxhashturnsone event, I resurrected a grid walker I had worked on over a year ago. I wanted to create a project that would hint at circuits and computer chips. Unfamiliar Directions is available on fxhash. Underneath each render is a square grid of equal columns and rows. The lower the column and rows,… Continue reading Unfamiliar Directions
Tunnels is my newest project dropped on fxhash. ‘Tunnels’ explores using generative backgrounds to lead a field of isometric shapes. How the foreground and background interact varies wildly from generation to generation. ‘Tunnels’ can seem to have an exit and sometimes seem to lead into nowhere. https://www.fxhash.xyz/generative/21164 Like a few previous projects, I created a… Continue reading Tunnels
Fast Food Wall Art Simulation
Fast Food Wall Art Simulation is live on fxhash! I’ve been working on a new sketch for about a week now and feel it’s complete. Like many others in the past, I started with hand-drawn elements. I ultimately wanted all the shapes to layer on top of each other, so I went with circles of… Continue reading Fast Food Wall Art Simulation
