New blog post! I wrote about The Reactive Square, a 1994 work of experimental digital graphic design from American designer John Maeda. http://cdrom.ca/art/2022/06/14/reactive-square.html
Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.
I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.
The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.
Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!
Last year I discovered the joy of using masking fluid with watercolour paints and in this little experiment I really went to town with it! All the lines are made by painting masking fluid, then adding a layer of watercolour, then repeat adding darker layers each time. Peeling off the masking fluid is incredibly satisfying.

One of my favourite things about 3d printing is bringing things back to life that would otherwise be rubbish. I got this “broken” tripod at our local recycle shop missing its quick release. 10 minutes with callipers and CAD and I have a working “GoPro style” mount. #reuse

Totally despise making a spontaneous trip to a home improvement store for research, buying nothing, then getting mobbed by ads from the competing brand on the birdsite.
No preemptive searches, only a phone call that mentioned it, and an active GPS (because I'm bad about deactivating it) on my phone. 🤬🤬🤬
i want to be shameless like the sun
