100DaysOfCode R2D5 Getting an overview of the code isn’t so easy when you’re learning! 🧐 So I printed a PDF of my code from the “Fullstack D3 and Data Visualization” tutorial I did on Day 1, and started underlining, drawing, and commenting by hand.
I made my code PDF from a GitLab issue - it supports Markdown so I got syntax colours in the PDF. Next time, I’ll test a print-to-PDF add-on in my editor. 💻📜

One of the exercises in the book "Observe, Collect, Draw!" by Stefanie Posavec and @giorgialupi is “how music makes me feel”: draw how one’s emotions change during a song. I used the template in the book and applied own feelings and colours. To compare the songs, I made a small multiples chart of my six song drawings.

Data vis inspiration: Textile designs from the1920s. By Lithuanian born artist Varvara Stepanova.
This one is a freehand exercise to experiment with combinations, overlaps, textures, and drawing materials. I used Procreate drawing app on iPad and tried to see what I could do with just one pen and very simple symbols.

Interview with @Rougeux , maker of beautiful data vis/art. I'm particularly inspired by his music vis, but basically everything he makes is amazing. 😍
Some data vis projects are so beautiful that they literally make the heart beat faster. 💓 Check out Hanna Piotrowska (Dyrcz)'s visualisations of "If on a winter's night a traveler" in her master thesis. 😍
Studying datavisualisation. Musician & teacher. Dancer & DJ of Argentine social tango. Fun fact: I designed & coded my profile pic & header.
