Explorations into programming and illustration

  • InkLabs

    This January I co-taught one of the InkLab workshops that were coordinated by Zarah Ash-Harper at the Pervasive Media Studio. The aim of the workshop was to encourage artists and creative people to get involved in technical making. Often in the studio people are making work with different technologies through collaboration, but they do not…

  • Inktober

    I made a sketch in my notebook every on most days in October with a Pental brush pen, and then I programmed a digital sketch with the drawings using Paolo Pedercini’s p5.play library. The whole process was intentionally quick, and (including the gif creation) it usually took about an hour and a half. I wanted…

  • Roots and things

    I’m still making generative drawing with p5.js (which I am calling “drawgramming”). This sketch generates random (and rather lovely) roots that have grown from a very slow snail. Try it out here >>> https://www.beccarose.co.uk/code/rootz/ I didn’t manage to figure out how to add a button to this to generate new snail-root-growing-formations (well, I did add…

  • More drawgramming

      I’ve made some further explorations into programming and illustration inspired by . This program (here >>> https://www.beccarose.co.uk/code/drawgramming/) uses the open library API to generate “book covers” with a number of images (that were lurking around my desktop at the time of making). The writing highlighted in green is from open libraries collection of book…

  • Drawgramming

    It’s been a while since I posted anything on this blog because life has been pretty busy. But alas, my evenings are back and I can tinker away at making pointless sketches once more. Joy. I’ve started to use P5.js, it is another processing project, but based on Javascript, which means it works really nicely…

  • Happy Fathers Day!

    // happy fathers day pa! // thanks for helping me learn about being creative. // thanks for being silly. // thanks for teaching me that being nerdy is ok. // thanks for being kind. // thanks for being you. // love you xxx The code is below: PImage webImg, webImg1; int imgWidth = 100; int…

  • two eyes you are

    Second assignment already and my face is smiling because I got to make gifs. Giftastic. The actual assignment was to practice GUI (graphic user interface, pronounced goo-ey as in slime). Requirements were to have images and labels, and that the labels are relevant to the images. It looks a bit like this (screen shot): but…

  • Useful Command Prompts

    In the Java course I am taking our teacher uses the command line to program. I have started to get to grips with entering things in the command line. I have always been very scared of the terminal, but it is not so scary after all. A big hold back was knowing the commands, and…

  • Java Jelly Fish

    This month I enrolled in a “Fundamentals to Programming Java” class for the semester. Of course I still think Processing is A-mazing and don’t want to stop learning how to use it, and have lots more projects to make with it, but teaching yourself stuff for extended periods of time can be tiring (especially with…

  • Knitting Program: bitKNIT

    Almost 10 months ago to the day I started a blog called “Processing Processing”. I started it to document the process of learning the visual programming language, Processing. My first post, published on February 16th 2014, lists 10 reasons why I wanted to start to learn to program. Reasons like “because I like making stuff”,…

  • Knitting Program V1

    There has been a short hiatus in my processing development. But lordy-lordy am I a happy programmer right now! Oh joy of joys. I have been making a program for generating stranded knitting patterns from photographs. I will write more about the program as it develops, but here are the screen shots. The program is…

  • Look I made a mug!

    I think it’s based on my worried-thinking-about-how-little-I-know mug. Yeah yeah, it’s really basic stuff, but helped me get to grips with drawing spatially. Here’s the process and the code I used: void setup (){ size (400, 500); background (255); } void draw () { //body stroke (0); fill (0); rect (0, 200, 400, 300); //face…

  • Learning processing?

    Hello and thank you for joining me on this journey into the vast world of computer programming. To start, I’m gonna write a little bit about why I am learning to code. I think it’s obvious why, but some people may not think it is so obvious, and ask questions like: “Why the hell are…
