I heart people who send me art

21 Apr 2006

I’m a lucky boy. Twice people have sent me digital art that floats my boat. Late last year, Siobhan sent me this, based on one of my photos on Flickr:

I have a real thing about vertical lines (thats what the tree thing was about on the last site design), and I love this. After a lot of email communication, I finally got to meet Siobhan back in February and I now have a large photographic print of this beauty, as well as a new friend. Here’s a post where Siobhan explains the process.

At one point I was ready to use this in a revised site design, but then Veerle redesigned and scuppered that with her bars at the top of every page.

Kunal Anand has been busy with a Python script he wrote to create visualizations from xml file output of people’s de.licio.us tags. I was so glad he asked me for my xml file, and a copy of my (then) logo as a vector artwork, because here’s the result, and I think its fantastic:

Thanks Siobhan and Kunal!
