Newsletter #36 - Dali Clocks, Morphing Balls, and SVG Generators
Howdy, partner! Last week's issue got sent to a lot of spam folders, so check that one out for some wonderful news.
I hope you had a wonderful holiday and didn't look any gift-horses in the mouth, as they say.
I hope you had an excellent year despite the constant chaos of the world. If not, I hope 2022 is a hard upswing for all of us.
Next year we'll probably buy a horse ranch and declare statehood. The future is a mystery!
This pen seems straightforward until you click 'Visit the work' and the effect kicks in. By using SVG filters, Shirasawa gives the clock images an animated, Salvador Dali style.
File this one under 'super satisfying', as the ball goes from a smooth ball of goo, to a spiky Koosh ball, and back again. It's a really nice pen from Daniel Hult, who also created a similar effect here.
You get some really gorgeous results from this collection of generators. There are generators for patterns, blobs, gradients, noise, and lots more.
My favorite bit is how many are inspired by our friend George Francis, and even use his Utils library! Always nice to see brilliant ideas ripple out into the community.
So long, partner
That's it for this week!
