Quasicrystals are highly structured patterns which are not periodic. Unlike the crystalline structure of e.g. hexagons, a quasicrystal will never line up perfectly with a shifted copy of itself. Here such a structure is created as the interference pattern between 7 waves approaching the centre of the image at equal angles. The 2011 Nobel prize in Chemistry was awarded for the discovery of quasicrystals in chemical compounds. [more] [code]

“Well, you can’t just put that in the undergrowth, it’ll get eaten in like two seconds.”
“What should I do with it, then?”
“I don’t know. Throw it in Australia with the rest of the unspeakably bizarre stuff, I guess.”
Constrvct is a user-generated fashion label that transforms your images into digital textiles, and then sews your fabric into clothes.

Ask Jeeves Easter egg :)
Good Omens cover (front, back, spine and wings) for Book Illustration. I wanted to go back to my flat style for a bit just to see how else I could use it (and also the fact that I haven’t used it at all since coming back to school from winter break, which is just plain weird).
