Most of the concepting for this design was done with Processing and then I brought it into Illustrator and got a little carried away with gradients.
I did most of this in Illustrator but the random color pattern and offset line idea came from Processing.
This sketch was inspired by Josef Albers and Carlos Cruz-Diez. Also, I messed around with blending modes in Illustrator. It makes for some interesting color results!
This is my first nature vs. computer sketch and is one of my favorites. It was inspired by Sol LeWitt's open cube project and well, I like lichen. :)
I took some photos of an old tree while hiking along the Old Sauk river near Darrington, WA. I chopped up the tree photo to make the circles and the the Processing sketch is in the background to act as a digital complement.
This sketch was created because I wanted to work with shapes that had an odd number of sides. I settled on heptagons (7-sided polygons). I like how they create different shapes depending on how you stack them together. I took the leafy photo while walking on a nature trail near my house. I've been experimenting with bokeh with my new 50mm lens.
