I get the wanting to use something-broke-and-made-art hashtags. But please, Art requires intent of the artist to make Art. Your gorgeous bug, is just that. A bug. Take it further, decide to make it into art. Then it will be Art, and not an accident.

It's a dark and rainy day, here in San Francisco, which certainly influenced me while working on today's drawing.


I havn't touched my loom for two years. But after seeing this beautiful weaving on a takadai, I'd also love to weave again 😍 youtu.be/B8IFB1v5Oe4

Today's drawing is on the last page of this sketchbook. Tomorrow, I'll be drawing on differently textured paper.

I mentioned this elsewhere, but want to share here as well...my own comments and questions have not been posed lightly nor comfortably. But I shared my thoughts and concerns out of devotion to the community. When I first raised one, I was expecting and prepared to be shunned or otherwise punished.

And to be clear, I never suggested that Slack not be used at all. I just think that it's limiting as the 'only' place for participating. Slack can be integrated with other, more open, platforms like Discourse.

For today's drawing, I'm going with a squiggly abstract network diagram.

Finally posting my drawing from this morning, after a long and wonderful day at GDC related events.

I wrote down some thoughts about the new "Data Visualization Society" vis4.net/blog/2019/03/not-my-s

Starting a new post, with colors influenced by my @nervous_system cup. Still playing with lacewing beetle pattern inspiration.


Wrapping up this week of , with another drawing inspired by lacewing beetles.

Inspiration for today's drawings comes from lacewing beetles.

Hi, folks! Apparently we are up to ~4,000 users here on vis.social. Exciting!

I just upgraded our hosting plan to ~USD$45 per month to handle all your toots. So, yeah, there's no such thing as a free toot. 🍍

Yesterday's Data Vis Book Club (@datavisclub) about RJ Andrews' "Info We Trust" was really fun. Thanks to @infowetrust for answering our questions, and to everyone who participated in the discussion! It's all preserved here: notes.datawrapper.de/p/bookclu
