Flow fields are also something that many programmers reach for early on when they first get into creating algorithmic artwork, but few take the time to polish their use and explore the crazy variety of ways they be used. In this post, I'm going to cover the basics of flow fields, suggestions for different variations on their use, and tips for making them look good.

Off the wall: the enduring impact of the printed poster | Art and design | The Guardian
t New York’s recently opened Poster House museum, three exhibits sum up the poster’s impact on life and culture. At one end is an ad by Raymond Savignac for French soap brand Monsavon. In the gallery next to it are hand-painted Ghanaian film posters – a rich tradition sadly falling victim to the lurid charms of digital printing. Downstairs is a display from the Women’s Marches in the US.

How to achieve scale in your paintings | Creative Bloq
In this tutorial we will go over some basic principles that will help communicate the idea of large scale in your own pieces. I'm using pencils and oils for this tutorial, but you can also apply these principles to your digital artwork. Conveying a sense of scale isn’t just a matter of drawing huge objects within your scene. Those objects must appear correct relative to other elements, through the use of value, colour theory, repetition, viewpoint and so on. Photographic lenses and their relationship to apparent scale is a little-understood aspect of illustration and will also be covered. As always, basic lighting design, colour choices and composition will strengthen your work.

Generated Space is the result of a year-long endeavour to make computers do unexpected things. It presents a wide range of different generative algorithms; from organic flow fields and particle systems to rigid fractals and grammar-based shapes. Some more serious than others.
All the code is open source and available on GitHub, so feel free to change and improve upon any sketches that interests you.

Paris Review – The Beauty of Code, Vikram Chandra
Beautiful code is lucid, it is easy to read and understand; its organization, its shape, its architecture reveals intent as much as its declarative syntax does. Each small part is coherent, singular in its purpose, and although all these small sections fit together like the pieces of a complex mosaic, they come apart easily when one element needs to be changed or replaced.

BBC - Future - Can synaesthesia be learnt?
Synaesthesia was first recorded medically by Gustav Fechner in 1812, and since then estimates have put the number of people experiencing the effect at anywhere between 1 in 2,000 and 1 in 23. The difficulty in knowing how many people experience synaesthesia is that like Colizoli, many people do not realise they experience the world any differently to other people. Even defining synaesthesia can be tricky because of the different ways in how people experience it.

When Edward Gorey Illustrated Dracula: Two Masters of the Macabre, Together | Brain Pickings
As if knowing that the great Edward Gorey illustrated a small stable of little-known and wonderful paperback covers for literary classics weren’t enough of a treat, how thrilling it is to know that he also illustrated the occasional entire volume, from classic fairy tales to H. G. Wells’s War of the Worlds to T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. But out of all his literary reimaginings, by far the greatest fit for Gorey’s singular brand of darkly delightful visual magic is Edward Gorey’s Dracula (public library), a special edition of the Bram Stoker classic originally published in 1977 and eventually adapted as a magnificent toy theater of die-cut foldups and foldouts.
