IF: Help

Here's my special birthday submission for Illustration Friday. Click on the image to generate a new composition. When I saw this week's topic I thought of a painting by J.M.W. Turner called The Slave Ship. This piece is inspired by that painting. You can see some generated samples below.


  • Sweetness! I think this is my favorite so far. The colors, motion and textures are amazing. And to think that it is all generated by code...Amazing!

    Happy Birthday Jordan

  • Oh man, Nate beat me to it. Well, Happy birthday Jordan. And I think you're wonderful. I also really like this piece. I like the colors and the watery feel of it. It makes me feel like I'm drowning, but in a pleasant sort of way.

  • Neat stuff. I love the similarities and differences of shape and color to The Slave Ship. Cool participatory effect, too.

  • its cool but its not actually generative art. when you click the swf, a message is sent to jordan, who sits at his computer drawing like crazy during every request.

  • It is very very dynamic Jordan. I can see how it was inspired by the slave ship image with the colors and shapes, but then it takes on a life of its own and becomes something different. It is great. It has become more of a raging wildfire to me now, but I guess that is the influence of the impressionist color scheme.

    Justin should know that stealing identities is against the law by now.
