Miscellaneous Monday - Internet Waste or Awesome Art?

Meg Holbrook Community Leader Sep 10, 2018

Good afternoon friends!

Apologies for the late post, but it's MOVING DAY for me here at the office. With that in mind, here's a quick distraction if, like me, your day has been somewhat hectic and you need a few moments to unwind with some mindless activity!

Enter SILK which is a fantastic and beautiful computer-generated drawing program that can net you a spiffy new computer background if you're so inclined. 

The coolest feature of this site is the ability to have rotational symmetry at varying degrees, mirroring, and duplicate points (and you can pick whatever colors tickle your fancy). 

Here's a quick 2-3 second image that I designed a few minutes ago:

The beauty is in the simplicity here, so play around! I hope you'll share your creations below. Happy Monday!

Whoa, cool colors @Jack!

I love the colors of yours @Jack!  I say we all get it as matching tattoos at the next summit!

....ok, maybe just get it made as a temporary tattoo.  ;)

@Meg Holbrookmy gift on this rainy Monday to every champion and Atlassian people for making this space a great place for all of us.

dang! how come yours is beautiful and harmonious with nature where mine looks evil. I worry about me sometimes. 

Jack Community Leader Sep 10, 2018

but I will say that @Meg Holbrook's looks a bit like Krang from the Ninja Turtles...

@JackThere is nothing wrong with yours, it is beautiful. All I did was to move the "No rotational Symmetry" all the way to the right

Jack Community Leader Sep 10, 2018

aha...an advanced user!

Fadoua Community Leader Sep 10, 2018

Believe me first time using it. Look at Meg's picture and you will see at the bottom right a flower, then I was thinking there must be a way to do it.

Meg Holbrook Community Leader Sep 10, 2018

OMG @Jack - it DOES totally look like Krang, I'm cracking up right now.

@Fadoua- is just cooler than we are.

supposed to be a butterfly!

Meg Holbrook Community Leader Sep 11, 2018

I definitely got butterfly vibes off of this one! Nicely done! Love the rainbow colors ^_^

Jodi_LeBlanc Community Leader Sep 11, 2018

It was fun to make, and a nice 1 minute activity to recharge my mind with a little fun and creativity! thanks again, hope your move went well and that all your plants love their new digs :)

@Jodi_LeBlanc, uups, my first thought was Diablo, although it is not so colourful. 

But it is also a wonderful butterfly.
