Study of musculature - Stuart Morris

Stuart Morris draw muscles on top of the image of the human form as artistic exercise and expression. His focus on mastering the technique and its transferability explained by him self draw my attention.

Colour variantions and names

Do you know what colour golden rod is? Or ghost white ? The table at gives some colour suggestions for common colour names, along with their hexadecimal values. Naturally, there are many different colour codes that can be considered belonging to a particular colour, you will find suggestions by using the links next to each of the colour.

Pure colours like pure red or green are rarely used in the creating of colour schemes. Black, white or gray can be added to the pure colour to change its characteristic in a specific way. The words "tint," "shade" and "tone" are technical terms that describe each particular kind of change.

Useful could be 0to255 a web tool created by Shaun Chapman that helps web designers find lighter and darker colours (tints and shades) based on any colour.

City In A Bottle

City In a Bottle is an interactive project bordering between art, science and games, a virtual ecosystem of plants and insects. The game world mechanics are based on the principles of emergence and evolution by natural selection. Complex social behaviour and new life forms will evolve by themselves as the game progresses. The game engine is an open source, cross-platform version of NodeBox optimized for hardware-accelerated image processing, "NodeBox for OpenGL" a NodeBox-spinoff.

It is a very interesting project developed in a small interdisciplinary team of artists, musicians and computer scientists:
Champ d'Action (Belgium-based ensemble for contemporary classical music). Scientific advisor is Johan Gielis (author of the superformula, first published in the March 2003 American Journal of Botany). People working on City In A Bottle: Nicolas Marinus (project manager), Ludivine Lechat (visual artist), Tim Vets (Champ d'Action, musician), Frederik De Bleser, Tom De Smedt. Via:Tim Vets

More about the project via Ludivine Lechat and some interesting parts from behind the scenes such as a background scenery trough the Procedural architecture.

Color Cycling with HTML5

2D pixel graphics of old are making a comeback thanks to mobile devices and web games. It is good time to reintroduce color cycling, using open web technologies like the HTML5 Canvas element.
