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

Here's some advice on getting through the month of daily drawings

Show thread

It's hard to believe, but with today's drawing, I've been doing these little daily drawings every day for five years. Hopefully, I can keep going for another 5 years.

It all started with the challenge. I figured I'd give it a try: do a drawing in ink every day for the month of October. When I started, I was just trying to get through the first week. But by the end of the month, I wasn't done, so I just kept drawing.

Today's drawing was inspired by today's prompt, "Yielding", but is very indirect. I suppose it's an abstract mesh that is somewhat yielding...but that's a stretch.

Having fun with today's prompt: 'Dancing'. How could I resist drawing some dancing star fish? I couldn't.

Today's 's prompt is a fun one: Branching. So I went with a simple branching tree for today's drawing. Here's an in-progress ...finished drawing is now posted for my fans on Patreon and Ko-fi.

Can I actually pull together an outdoor exhibit of some of my one week?

We shall see. It'll be close.

Being 'Kind' to myself, and indulging in playing around a bit more with lichen inspired patterns for today's drawing. Yes, 'Kind' is today's prompt for . Finished drawing now posted for my supporters.

Today's prompt is "Rocky". My mind goes to lichen covered today's drawing is an abstract interpretation of some gorgeous lichen. Here's an in-progress peek.

Not ready to move on from this pattern...I'm loving combining two 'slices' and pairing colors. Here's an in-progress shot. The finished drawing's now posted on Patreon and Ko-fi:

Taking a break from the prompts, and playing with an idea from a few days ago, with today's drawing. Here's an in-progress shot.

What's the song my teenager found most resonant and found out her fellow classmates also listened to, when they went back to classrooms? Something from my parents' generation.

Thinking through the question you want to ask, especially when debugging code, can lead you to the solution before you even get to ask.

Starting a new week of daily drawings, with today's prompt: "Winged". I've been wanting to play with drawing bees, and this is the perfect push to start.
