Playing with some update ideas for my "Sunflowers" animated meditation. Might take me a while to get this one right, but here's an early screenshot.

Who's up for getting one of my Generative Art stickers? All I ask is that you let me know when the envelope arrives.

Together we can share a little joy, and collect data on USPS delivery times.

How it works:

1. You sign up
2. I mail a sticker to you
3. You tell me when it arrives

In today's drawing, I managed to avoid most of the 'problem spots' in the paper. Here's an in-progress photo. Wanna see the finished drawing? Join my supporters at ko-fi.com/Post/InkyDays-051622 or patreon.com/posts/66512317

Starting a new week and a new post with daily drawings. Here's an in-progress look at today's drawing.

Wrapping another week of daily hand drawn generative art, with a fun ink combination...well, it's a fun combination for me. Here's a photo of it in-progress.

Ok, so, realizing that I exist in some form of Autism, is one thing. How do I communicate to my friends and family who haven't noticed or didn't want to say anything...how do I help them?

Another experiment, for today's drawing. Delighted that all three inks do ok on this awful paper.

Here's an in-progress shot. Finished version, for my fans at ko-fi.com/Post/InkyDays-050922 and patreon.com/posts/66218098

A bit later on posting today's drawing than I usually am. But here's today's drawing in-progress.

A few years ago, I was working on a big data set and took 'slices' while testing and exploring. My kid saw this one and said it looked like 'Unicorn Barf'. Ha!

And it needs to be led by women, but men also need to participate.

Good men see bad men behave badly all the time. Some, but not all of that bad behavior is directed at women. Much of it is very terrible.

But men need to feel free so SMASH that RED button, no matter the gender of the target.

We all need to!

To be honest, I was first thinking about this from a social media perspective.

But wow! Women really need this RED BUTTON all the time everywhere, online and in real life.

Fuck! Really, dudes have no idea how easy their lives are.

Why isn't there an automatic RED BUTTON that women can just SMASH when they are being attacked? Like let someone else deal with it!
Asshole just said I don't "write my own code" or my mother's death is irrelevant to the art I created when coming home from sitting at her deathbed

Hey Mastodon admins! How do I block an account on another instance from harassing accounts on my own instance?

Yeah, some people who code are women. With degrees in multiple subjects in the Sciences.

And they are also artists. Who had difficult mothers, and worked on a generative art piece while sitting deathbed vigil for their mother.

Some of us take our human experiences, some of our pain and grief, and express them with code and art.

Just resist the urge to make a shitty comment on someone's work, especially artistic.

You never know what they went through to create that work.

For me? I really was sitting deathbed vigil for my mom while I was working on the piece.

Working on it helped me deal with the intense emotions I was experiencing.

And yes, I made a decision to go abstract and ignore Fibonacci.

Don't do this. Seriously!

My response to this avatar-less guy was

"I don't recall mentioning Fibonacci numbers on this piece that I worked on while sitting deathbed vigil for my mother.

Thanks."

Experimenting with different inks for today's drawing. One of them worked ok.
