Experiments using a free structured-graphics drawing tool, Inkscape .
- Elm in Oval
- My friend, Rob Bettmann, commissioned me to design a logo for his online magazine, Bourgeon (bourgeononline.com). He suggested the theme - a budding branch - and i found an image of an elm branch that i could convert, via the fantastic SVG vector-graphics editor, Inkscape, into this iconic image.
- Kira's Danses
- A variation on my young friend, Kira's, response to Rob Bettmann's question, "what is dance?", that Kira and I developed in Inkscape.
- Myriadicity Regressing Clasp
- Here's a draft logo design which i wound up using as be basis for the site favicon. It's an example of a design that's self-similar across scale: the successive enclosing braces are the identical to the ones they immediately contain, except larger. You can also look at it as a pair of repeatedly crossing paths, clockwise going inwards, counter-clockwise going outwards. I like to think that the paths turn around at the (infinite) outer edge and center, so they constitute an infinitely enraveled loop.
