Web Project – BYU-Idaho Upward Infographic

For this issue they asked if we could tryout some “parallax” scroll based animation on some of the infographics. I was put in charge of the Legacy Moments: Yesterday infographic, and working with graphic designers we created this interactive animated infographic for readers to enjoy.

Basic Implementation of 3D subdivision

Started a project to play around with the concept of subdivision in 3D space to create complex geometry algorithmically from simple starting points. Created this little applet using Processing 3, the Java based coding environment. It’s based on OpenGL with an large emphasis of visual art contexts. #gottastartsomewhere.

Anyway, I tried to ink one of my sketches today… Read More
