Franklin – Peacock Process Break Down

Peacocks are created using a custom peacock generator application written in OpenFrameworks. Each peacock is programmatically generated, and therefore unique. Peacocks are printed on a pen plotter and then water colored by hand. Each peacock is a triptych, composed of three 11 x 17″ pieces to compose the complete work. Below is the programmatic generation of my friend “Franklin.” More pen plotter works can be seen in Drawing Machine.

The output from the custom software is sent as lines to the pen plotter in three separate pieces.

After the pieces have been printed on the plotter, they are water colored by hand.

Final piece:

Damarion – Squid Process Break Down

Squids are created using a custom squid generator application I wrote in OpenFrameworks. Each squid is randomly generated, and therefore unique. Squids are printed on a pen plotter and then water colored by hand. Below is the process for creating “Damarion.” More pen plotter pieces are viewable in Drawing Machine.

The output printed on the pen plotter and then water colored by hand, yielding the finished result below:
