31 Difficult fun
Title: Sketchbook pages
Method: Pencil, paper, highlighters, blood, sweat, tears
These are a few pages from the sketchbook that I developed the new code for Cloth Of Gold in. It's not object oriented yet (see previous post) and I've returned to using cellular automata, but the outputs have started to inch in the right direction quality-wise. It was an extraordinarily difficult thing to do, but that also made it very rewarding. The code is based on algorithms I developed to model the print/pattern design process. I was expecting to do everything sat in from of a computer, but quickly discovered it was far better to start everything off in a sketchbook.
