Bored developer is a dangerous animal

I have a lot of work, but all of it is quite boring. When I am tired and bored I find escape in graphic design. That lead me to creating a new header image for the blog. Why this particular image? I don't know. I always wanted to create something sci-fi looking.

A font I have found online gave me an insparation to create 3D text, and reminded me how to do 3d materials. The circles and sci-fi looking crap was done by me searching for all sorts of brushes for pgraphics soft. maybe I should have done flowers and squiggly lines.

I'll probably get sick of this pretty fast. So I'll do another one.

Looks cool, although I find the blue circles a bit random. Nice to hear that you find enough time in your life to experiment with this :-)

It's not about having time it's about making it available. This is my escape from the ordinary of office work.

Here is a thing about randomness. It is purposeful. I've read it somewhere in the arts and designs books. Symmetry looks nice because our brains are hardwired for it. We always look for order and patterns. But the thing about it, that patterns because boring pretty fast as we get familiar and accustomed to them. Randomness and chaos keeps the eye interested for much longer, while brain tries to find that escaping pattern.

MMMM... Brain Science!
