Alexander and I spent most of the afternoon drawing. Pokemon of
course. Here's my version of an Omanyte.
One day my eldest son and I were riffing on the Matrix' famous lobby gunfight. One version had Neo and Trinity using tubes of toothpaste instead of guns, with the guards still flying backwards just as far when hit with a squirt of 'paste. Remaking this scene is way way way beyond my skills but I did enjoy whipping up this hommage to Neo, our dental defender :-)
We often think of fractals as computer-generated but they're all around us, from coastlines to trees. This video shows how a few ingenious people generate some of the most famous "computer fractals" entirely by analog means: a few cameras and a feedback loop. Watch closely and you'll see Julia sets, Sierpinski gaskets, and more! Another way to remember Benoit Mandelbrot's recent passing.
Thanks to Ben for the zombie silhouettes.
