The best of PlotterTwitter from January 2020.
Well, January is almost over and it's time for a recap of one of my favorite Twitter hashtags: #PlotterTwitter.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with #PlotterTwitter, it's a place for people to show off their plotter art. It has become an incredibly creative space with everyone able to see each other work and expand upon it.
And so here we are, a little recap of some of the best works in January's #PlotterTwitter!
Netpraxis created some very nice designs using moiré patterns which are complex patterns that emerge by overlaying two simple patterns on top of each other. They can look endlessly complex and simple at the same time.
Julien Gachadoat created some super clean, mechanical-esque plots. I haven't really seen anything like it.
Showing that you can find inspiration anywhere, Ruud de Rooij plotted out every single way to cross a road 7 times without crossing over your path.
Tyler Hobbs used a plotter to draw outlines of circles, and then painted the colors in by hand.
Works robotically plotted with a pencil, then painted by hand. Shifting back to physical pigments forces me to try new color choices, which I dig. #generative #plottertwitter pic.twitter.com/De73nZon63— Tyler Hobbs (@tylerxhobbs) January 7, 2020
Louis Hoebregts recreated some Keith Haring works with a creative grid of swirls.
Yuin Chien plotted out 2D renderings of folded paper based on origami diagrams. With beautiful colored markers on black paper, they truly pop out of the page.More! Give me more!
