Makers Faire Milwaukee, Charon Wallpaper, and Art Workflow
Inside Makers Faire Milwaukee
A couple weeks ago I attended Makers Faire Milwaukee. I had meant to do a write up of my experience but I've had a case of writer's block in figuring out just what I wanted to say. I was at Makers Faire for two reasons. First, I was conducting a workshop on Creating Digital Spirographs and Harmonographs with Processing – a favorite of mine as it combines art with math with programming.
Second, wearing my NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory Solar System Ambassador hat, I delivered a presentation on the New Horizons mission to Pluto. With respect to my Pluto talk, a number of the illustrations I use are either my own renders or my own interpretations of New Horizons imagery. For example, here is a free wallpaper version of my enhanced and colorized image of Charon that I've previously shared on social media.
Lastly I've been adding new fields to my art inventory spreadsheet that I hope to be able to use to help automate the production of gallery pages here on my web site. While I was at it, I decided to do a basic write-up of the data keeping portion of my art work flow. If this is of interest to you, then see My Art Workflow – The Management Bits.
With respect to my art, consider checking out my portfolios on the following art print on demand sites.
