Create Fractals with Recursive Drawing
I love recursive processes in science and I've been creating art from fractals for a long time. Recently I experimented with a recursive drawing process of building up pixels at different scales to create a tree. Well that was nothing... I've just discovered the best recursive drawing tool ever!
It's a web-based drawing app that works in your browser. Watch the video first, it gives you an excellent introduction to how it all works. This is an amazingly simple tool where anyone can create beautifully complex pieces of art in no time at all. I'm totally hooked!
Here are some of my creations:
It really is such a versatile tool and it's so fun to use. It does have some drawbacks, however. There is no save button (except for taking a screenshot) and there's no undo or delete (if you hit delete you will lose everything), and the pictures are limited to black and white. You can pan by dragging on any white space in your drawing and you can zoom by scrolling your mouse wheel.
