welp this is going to change my life (I like opening jupyter notebook right from the command line which has traditionally resulted in me having a bajillion different jupyter notebook servers running at any one time—this tool lets you start up a notebook *in an existing server running on your computer.* doing great so far in 2019 allison)

One could say that everything is math, but my inspiration for today's drawing is only unintentionally math. Rather, it's inspired by tiles I saw on my last trip to Santa Fe.

An interesting look back at the early days of social media & how conventions of blogs, likes, comments, followers etc. evolved. It's a round table discussion with people who built and ran LiveJournal, Diaryland and Open Diary in the late 1990s.

This week's prompt is Mandelbrot! I'm focusing on small details of the set as inspiration for my drawing today.

Enjoying reading this book for no other reason than curiosity and because I once saw Jon Ippolito giving an excellent talk here in Brussels.
The authors argue that the vulnerability of new media art illustrates a larger crisis for social memory. They describe a ‘variable media’ approach to rescuing new media, distributed across producers and consumers.

Finishing this week of drawings with another experiment with my new sepia ink. It gets darker as it dries, but in this photo it's still wet and looks almost yellow instead of brown.

Playing with a new 'sepia' ink that I picked up on my last trip to Santa Fe. Inspired by coral and colorful sea creatures for today's drawing.

I'm so happy at this moment that I needed to celebrate by drawing fractal bunnies for today's drawing.


There's a new version of Anime.js out there:
The grid staggering looks pretty neat!

Flat is a pure-Python 2D drawing library "for creating and manipulating digital forms of fine arts. [...] It grew out of the needs for generative design, architecture and art." exports to SVG and so easily embeds in a jupyter notebook (`display(SVG(page.svg())`). I have been looking for something like this forever, it's a little quirky but seems too good to be true

It takes two to tango, I couldn't resist trying something a little more tricky for today's drawing, and now we have dancing Sierpinkski triangles.

Oh! These Sierpinski fractals are really fun to draw. Playing with them a little more for today's drawing.

Starting a new week of drawings, throwing some curves into my fractal drawing, and having fun with Sierpinski triangles (this week's prompt).

Scyllac is part of Los Alamos Scientific Laboratories efforts in the controlled thermonucleaer research program, Los Alamos, New Mexico

Oh! There's going to be a year of Mathematical Doodle sharing! With !

The first prompt has inspired me to draw some Koch Snowflakes for today's drawing.
