@dicewarebot, the solution I needed that no one asked for

A number of years ago I was trying to learn python. Random numbers have always amused me (as I was recently reminded by a twitter nod to the weird usage of spreadsheets). A user named @context_ing tweeted: “I love finding the ways in which people use spreadsheets. Personally, I use them for mostly budgeting, workout […]

Sonnet #011

By Kyle R. Conway on 2020-04-15 in GNU Emacs Note: This was written with the purpose of being less detectable as a structured poem if the line breaks are removed. I’ve placed that version immediately above the formatted sonnet. (Secret) Sonnet #011 In quarantine I have been writing thoughts down in my org-mode notebook to […]

Sonnet #001

By Kyle R. Conway on 2020-03-22 Sunday in GNU Emacs When stuck in time between a tunnel’s light and each escape obscured by mortal dread from whence shall solace torch a flame so bright alleviating anxiousness in head? Must nothing happen as all sit and watch such silent and invisible true foes encroach so quietly […]

hello!!! … World?

This is the original playscript I wrote for The Art of Python that took place at PyCon U.S. in 2019. I additionally performed the piece at PyCon with the directorial help of Sumana Harihareswara and the stage management work and acting performance as the Figure by Mel Chua. There were some changes to this script […]

Honestly Blending

If you’ve not messed about with Blender 2.8 yet you’re truly missing out. I’d previously taken some cracks at getting into this 3D software before and quickly found myself returning to the more familiar world of pen and ink or the 2D Inkscape for my artistic needs. But, just look at this procedural marble that […]

Please click here to submit (takes less than a minute!). Or, if you’re up for something more involved, to submit a longer proposal for the larger […]

I spent about five minutes playing around with this thing. Kind of fun. Very colorful. No apparent export tool 🙁

new art project: Kyle&

time off One of the things I’ve been doing this past week is creating art, initially with Kyle& … nobody. I’d been working on some things for the Fedora project on and off, but nothing was really sticking until I started working with my kids. My children are very good motivators with respect to artistic […]

asterisks

The project preview I’ve been working on a project. I believe it’s a good one. I have arranged some asterisks― ―and also borrowed and modified a line― ―then I borrowed some cruft (dusted off from something pretty good, if a little old)― ―at the end of it all I have some words. Cryptic Outro―apologies So […]

Squeak

I contributed to the most recent Fedora Linux release’s wallpaper. It’s interesting to have seen it pop up everywhere I normally read about Linux as a featured image touting the new releases arrival. At any rate, this is a squeak from me. It’s been a while since I’ve posted here (I was off playing with […]

some rocks

This is a quick (and ridiculous!) version of a project I’m working on. The final version will be more subdued, but I couldn’t resist quickly creating an animated gif once the thought entered my mind. Thoughts?

National Novel Writing Month

I have wanted to participate in NaNoWriMo for close to a decade―basically ever since I heard about its existence―but I was overwhelmed with my graduate studies and other things (excuses, excuses). Well, I finished graduate school and rid myself of all excuses. Tonight I successfully completed my first NaNoWriMo. Don’t ask to see the fruits […]

workspaces, systems, and old technology

I’ve been thinking about process lately. Okay, I’ve honestly been thinking about process for years. I’ve figured out pieces of my own process over the years through trial and error, reading about other processes, and dumb luck. What I’m most interested in now is how to increase the likelihood of using my own process to […]

toy ball 2

  This is interesting. I’ll likely change the colors a bit. Here is a set with the colors looking somewhat metallic. These images are vectors now. I’ll have to see if there’s anything else I’d like to do to mess about with them more. That said: the shape is still interesting.

Working on some new index card art. These are the raw images below―ink placed by fountain pen―that have yet to be digitally processed. I’ve been very interested in parallel lines recently. More to come certainly. At some point I’ll work to explain the process behind these pieces, but the easy thing to say is that […]

Toy ball

Toy ball shapes here are interesting. Think they might turn into something more compelling with a proper set of design applications to manipulate and rebuild. Top is just posterized via phone and is already enjoyable. More to come.
