While messing around with several different gifs I noticed how neat these animations were side by side. So I finally went back and created a collage. It's hard to tell here but I also made it so that each dot sort of glows and has additive color which gives an additional nice effect.
I was curious what it would look like if I animated some chaos fractals. They sort of look like fireworks :}
I made a few wallpapers out the artwork below: https://goodrobot.net/lab/downloads.html I also forgot I had made some 4k mandelbrot images a long time ago and now those have a nice home too.
Had some fun going through the first part of this course: https://frontendmasters.com/courses/canvas-webgl/ I think I need to spend some time learning more about noise functions. It's always been something I've wanted to do.
I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to use this space. I like the idea of leaving random thoughts and things. Here are my current goals for the new year:
- Record more music and continue learning to play guitar
- Draw more often
- Get serious about learning blender
- Actually finish coding through Mazes for Programmers
- Pick another fun programming book to work through (SICP or Linear Algebra through Computer Science Applications maybe?)
The biggest blocker as always is motivation and energy to do the thing.
