Some Shit I Just Made Up: 3, 6, 7
Most people were happy about last night’s Chiefs win. But not Greg.
Thanks everyone for playing along. A whole lot of you
drew my Twitter profile image yesterday! It’s been a blast watching my icon change every time I go back to Twitter, so I think I’ll just leave this up indefinitely. At least as long as the Twitter API gods will let me. :)
If you haven’t played with it yet,
draw something and make it my Twitter icon!
Draw Me a Twitter Profile Pic
I’m taking this a step further, instead of just
updating my Twitter profile image with an auto-generated sketch, now I’m going to let everyone just draw my Twitter profile image. Yep, the same image that 1,105 people will see when I post some insightful bit of wisdom under 140 characters.
Instead of starting from scratch, each new user starts from the profile image drawn by the previous user. There’s no erase tool, that might make this a little more interesting.
This weekend project is powered by the hot new
P5js and CodeBird.
Now get to work. Draw me a new profile pic!
Change My Twitter Look
I was inspired by
Brendan Dawes’ post where he used p5js and PhantomJS to update his Twitter cover image with an auto-generated Processing sketch.
Brendan hooked up his Processing sketch to a cron job on the server that would update it every hour. I thought it might be fun to let everyone else have control.
So whenever anyone
hits this page, my profile image is updated with a randomized composition. So go nuts. give me a new profile image!
