For a long time I've been interested in Generative Art and have dabbled with programs like Processing and Nodebox, and frameworks like the Hype Framework (when it was still based on ActionScript), but never in a committed, sustained way. So when I saw that Joshua Davis was running a class called "Programming Graphics I: Introduction to Generative Art" on Skillshare I jumped at the chance to get a peek into his work process and the code behind it.
Below are a few examples of images created as a result of the lessons in that course. These are fairly basic for now, tapping into my love of patterns, grids, colours and randomness, which is basically what atttracted me to Generative Art in the first place. Next step is animating by code.
Simon took our initial concept to very loose script and created a list of illustrations we needed to make our whiteboard video simply work. He delivered the first few illustrations in sketch form, and we knew he was going to nail it. On budget and on time every step of the way, Simon was not only a genius illustrator but a lovely person to work with. He has a talent for taking the everyday and making it sing. He delighted our audience with his clever and cute characters, and went beyond what we thought was even possible. We'd work with him again in a heartbeat. Jennifer del Greco, pndu.org
