I made this to somehow attempt to express the sadness I feel for the victims in Japan. After seeing literally hundreds of images of the devastation and suffering there, it was this one that brought me to my knees.
Interesting how subtle changes to only the underlying geometry result in dramatic changes in the emotional impact of the design.
Added a bit of grain to cover up Illustrator’s banding on the gradient. Not sure why that happens – so much to learn!
Complexity begins to emerge from simplicity. I love the OP aspect of this one, the way such simple shapes and colors produce an almost animated effect. I would love to make a high-quality print of this one.
Experimenting with iterating a 2-color design through progressively more complex geometry. Related to this earlier piece.
I did this one quite a while ago, but it was done under the influence of my desire to get back to basics, to get ideas “down on paper”.
Done in Adobe Illustrator.
Attempting to make some art, instead of just thinking and talking (to myself) about it. Looking to exploit the computer as a creative tool in as simplified a way as possible.
and working in Illustrator. Sometimes the complexity of 3d just gets on my nerves.
