I did one years ago that used the same elements as most of these, only in an elongated cube shape, rather than a circle, added houses and such to make it a town, and, as I recall, had the center of the design disappear into an infinite spiral. It was very cool, and someone agreed and bought it, so I can't show it to you. (This was years before I owned a computer.) Anyway, the reason I recall it now was because of the title I gave it, "I Live In My Own Little World, But That's OK, Everyone Knows Me There!". So That's why I call all my designs 'little worlds', as well as this here BlogSpot!
See, I actually started playing with circles before I started playing with cubes, but one day I decided to try to make a circle out of cubes, and it became an on-going process of development and experimentation - different shapes, different colors, different attempts to finesse the secondary elements - Making something made of all straight lines look curved!
What I learned from these early designs I've been incorporating into my art in other ways, but I still get the itch to create another globe from time to time.
Here's the first 10, and another episode of Kevin Koastie - which also involves the quest for strange new worlds (sort of).
