Amorphous Blobular Entity

I couldn’t think of anything that exists in reality to draw, so I drew a bunch of unrelated shapes with my pencil crayons.

You know, after about 20 years of drawing with pencil crayons, I have about 300 white pencil crayons. I am totally unable to get rid of them. I might need them someday. I totally might decide to draw on some black paper one day.

Mystery Project Day 3

Here’s the “Mystery Project” again. I’m going to have to go over the red lines once or twice more. That red is not quite as opaque as I’d like it to be.

In other news, the basement is once again cleared of people, so I can finally get back to working at night, without having to worry about waking people up. Productivity will soar!

Self-Similarity

I’ve enjoyed fractals since I learned about the Mandelbrot set, when I was about age eight. Now that I’ve discovered the fractal rendering program, Apophysis, I can make my very own fractals. And, thus, an all-consuming obsession is born.

Do magenta and brown go together? Is the combination against one of those style rules that I’ve been ignoring all my life? Clashing is good. Clashing is interesting.

…Monochrome can be interesting, though, as well.

With all the bizillions of snowflakes that fall and the fact that snowflake formation has to obey certain rules (always with the hexagons), you’d think that you could find two identical ones. Humans growth has to obey certain rules as well, but even identical twins have different fingerprints. We’re all special.

I’ve alway wanted to visit a nebula, but I have this sinking feeling that seeing gas close-up isn’t as interesting as seeing it from faraway.

I’m blue da ba dee da ba die (repeat ad naseum). I ate you Eiffel 65. So much.

One of the best parts about painting is the first time you dip the brush into the water and the colour goes swirling around.

See if you can count all the circles in this picture. It will drive you mad.

The low-res versions of these fractal renderings don’t really do them justice. You can get a .rar of the hi-res versions here: http://rapidshare.com/files/301824477/fractals.rar
