A quick and dirty self-portrait for the Light and Shadow class I'm taking at Gage Academy this quarter.
I've been trying to do slitscanning with Processing for years.
The trouble is the quicktime interface Processing has/uses is prone to failing, and code crashes quite sporadically.
So, I decided to skip quicktime, by using ffmpeg to convert my video to frames, use Processing to process the frames while outputting new frames, and then use ffmpeg to put the new frames back together into a video. This is working well.
Here is just a quick single frame, made from a 30 second video of me rotating my head slowly.
For my Foundation Drawing III class at Gage Academy, Seattle, I was reading about German Expressionism. I noticed that in 1919/1920, everyone seems to have made a woodcut self-portrait. Not having time to do a woodcut (and I've never done one), I decided to do a drawing in the style of a woodcut. Here it is.
Now I'm inspired to do this in an actual woodcut. Should be fun.
I'm taking a four week etching class at Pratt. This is the first time I have ever done any printing. Here are my first two etchings.
This is a self-portrait, an etching done with hard ground on copper. I somehow scratched the plate during the inking process.
This is a drypoint to try a variety of implements and see the results of their marks on the plate. A lot of detail was lost in the printing, which was good to learn.
I lectured on rational functions and optimization of two variable functions today. And then rational functions again. That's how my schedule goes: ABA.
A Gimp-assisted self-portrait:
I look scarier than I intended.
Had a cavity filled today. Rode the wind trainer for the first time since last winter. Here's a self-portait.
I look like a fish.
