One thing every developer deals with is Text. It could be xml, css, log files, a shopping list but most of us deal with text in one form or another every day. I built a collection of online tools to help me sort it, count it, search it, transform it as needed.
I was asked to teach a class to 5th and 6th graders on how to build a webpage. I created an online tutorial where each student could learn through discovery by typing code directly into the lesson. I received notes from some of the kids telling me they loved the class and wanted to become a web developer when they grow up which made the teaching effort worth it.
A contest was posted on the flashkit community forums
to see who could make the coolest swf in under 5 kilobytes. Where do I begin with that kind of green light? Naturally it would need to be interactive with circular collision detection and incorporate gravity. My entry won first prize as judged by my peers (try tossing the 8-ball around using your mouse).
I designed this postage stamp using watercolors as part of an assignment in highschool during the 1994 Winter Olympic Games.
On Christmas Eve, my daughter and I sculpted a huge Santa in the snow and then colored it with kool-aid.
My wife sent me outside to wash our dirty car but instead I ended up carefully dusting away layers of dirt until this appeared. She said I could wash it later...
I created this eagle using a medium called scratchboard
which is paper covered in a thin layer of white clay followed by a coat of black ink on the top. I then scratched away the highlights until this appeared.
I enjoy drawing birds. I colored on top of solid black matte using oil pastels but leaving a "hole" in the back of one bird which turned into the beak for his friend after adding some highlights.
I played football in highschool and was a fan of the Seattle Seahawks so I made this poster to hang in my room.
My art teacher and ceramics teacher in high school had a bit of a rivalry so when the art assignment was to make a caricature of one of our teachers I naturally had to go with my ceramics teacher Mr Karlinsky.
A quick sketch of a Stork to hang in the bedroom of our first baby boy using only a pencil (and possibly an eraser).
This pencil drawing uses only midtones except for a select high contrast square creating a sort of lens effect.
Water distributes light in a very natural way. I love the emotional result that can be achieved using watercolors.
This "recursive" bird sketch was the result of an abstract surrealism assignment.
I designed a website that shows how other websites render on different screen resolutions.
I built an online tool which translates between the most popular color formats simply by typing any of them. Try typing "crimson" or even your name and the page gives instant feedback.
After researching color theory and reading many articles online I found a list of the 16 most optimal colors to use in charts and graphs. I created a little jsFiddle to help me remember.
