Here's my thread! 31 days with 31 pen plotter drawings!

🎉🎉 It's also the launch of my Patreon: patreon.com/andymakes

The first 31 patrons will each get one of this month's sketches. Any remaining will be randomly sent to backers!

The guy who made "inktober" is kind of jerk, but I don't think he gets to own the concept of "draw something every day for a month". To that end, I recommend following an alternative prompt list if you want to participate (or just doing your own thing!)

Day 02 of on my pen plotter!

Can't go wrong with a little moiré pattern!

Day 03 of on the pen plotter!

Sketched out a filling algorithm while waiting for my flu shot and implemented it when I got home!

If you dig these drawings and want to own some of them, the first 31 backers of my new patreon will each get one (plus more plotter goodies down the road): patreon.com/andymakes

Here's a little pic of my notebook while I was thinking about what I wanted to do with today's drawing (along with some sketches that might be relevant later this month).

It's Day 04 of on my pen plotter!

More fun with color bars. This one is riffing on a PICO-8 I made last week!

Day 05 of on my pen plotter!

Playing with metallic ink on black card stock. It's always so hard to photograph this kind of ink because it never does justice for how it shimmers as it moves.

Day 07 of on my pen plotter!

Got inspired by some of the background art in Paul Kirchner's Dope Rider comics.

This took ages to code and there are still things I'd like to tweak!

Here's a little video of my plotter plugging away at the checkered flag.

Day 08 of on my pen plotter!

Trying out some new pens and some new shapes today! Digging the colors on these pens. Reminds me of risograph prints.

Day 09 of on the pen plotter!

Some maze text with a helpful reminder. I've been intrigued by these designs and finally backwards engineered it after being inspired by Martin Kleppe's recent work!

Day 10 of on my pen plotter!

More color experiments with the pens from Day 08! Some algorithmic color hatching. I like how dreamy these colors feel together, especially in the lighter areas.

Calling this one "Marbles"

I currently have 14 backers on Patreon (amazing! thank you!). The first 31 backers will all receive one of this month's sketches in the mail!

Day 12 of on my pen plotter!

Went back to a design from last month that I've been wanting to tweak.

The first 31 backers on my patreon will all receive one of these postcard-sized plots in the mail!

Day 13 of on my pen plotter!

Packing some hexagons and using noise to determine their density! After this month I'd really like to do a full-size version of this one.

Day 14 of on my pen plotter!

I made some voronoi diagrams! One with monochrome textures & the other with varying color lines.

If you dig these plots, you can back my patreon to get some for your very own!

Day 15 of on my pen plotter! Halfway through!

I'm a huge sucker for tightly packed lines with alternating color. They say to write what you know and I assume that applies to C++ as well!

Day 16 of on my pen plotter!

A little color gamp inspired design!

The first 31 backers of my patreon will each get one of these postcards!

A node graph! Using some chunky art markers I got as a gift last year.

Day 18 of on my pen plotter: Smoke

There was a visual effect I really liked at the end of Delta Rune Chapter 2. I couldn't figure out how it worked, so of course I backwards engineered it.

Patreon is up to 19 backers (wild!), which means there's still room to get one of these postcards!
