MY DOODLES

You know, those little drawings that you do while talking on the phone, sitting on a bus or train or while you’re in a meeting. Sometimes those doodles are just nonsensical scribbles and sometimes they are masterpieces of art.

I recently joined a group of creative individuals who in like-mind wanted to exchange these little works of doodle art. Within weeks doodles were doodled and mailed out by the deadline April 15th.

I have since received many doodles from across the US and from Canada. The thrill of getting small art pieces from people that I’ve never met face-to-face has been a blast and a not to say the least an inspiration and jolt to my own creativity.

For more information about how it all started check out the Doodle Swap Blog. Contact Mary, she’s the head mistress of the Doodle Swap.

Here’s the original thread started at the HOW Magazine Lounge Forum.

You can also see all the cool doodles that we have exchanged with each other at the Doodle Swap Group Flickr account.

Artistic Computation Art

I came across Jared Tarbell’s beautiful art by chance and was shockingly surprised that he does it all with code. He uses algorithmic methods and manipulates the code to craft the semantics of each program. The results are remarkable.

He became interested in computers in 1987 and has since grown in direct relation to his interest in computation. He says ” I write computer programs to create graphic images.” I think they are brilliant works of art.

Along with artistic talent Jared seems to have a since of humor too. He says he’s one part Magical Mystery Tour, one part Brandenburg Concerto, and one part Somnium (Robert Rich).

Visit his site to find many more examples. His creativity is truly amazing, beautiful and thought provoking.
