The "Idea" of Little Worlds - Part 2.

   Happy Easter, Everybody! (By the time I get this posted, it'll probably be early Monday morning, but I started it while it was still Easter Sunday, so that counts, right?)
   Here's another ten Globes, in a variety of styles, coincidentally all from 2005. 2005 was a good year for globe production.
Update: IMAO Link-of-the-Day - Globe and Penguin.
3 Color Globe. 05/16/05
   I applied the colors in a spiral pattern. I did the same thing with several of the globes I posted last week, but I forgot to mention it.
Luminous Globe. 05/24/05
Crystal Globe. -6/04/05
Fissure. 06/14/05

Contained Reaction. 06/16/05
Crystal Globe 2. 06/24/05
Fractile Globe. 07/19/05
Globe. 08/16/05
I think this is the last design I ever tried to fix with "White-Out". You can hardly notice it!
Semicurved Globe. 10/07/05
To control the curves, I had to sacrifice some of the excruciating detail of the fiddly-bits.
18 Color Fractile Globe. 12/18/05
I did a lot of "fractiles" in 2005. Although it finally led to the discover of the trans-dimensional ninja stealth monkeys, the design had limited applications, so I moved on. (eventually).

And now, a special Easter episode of Kevin Koastie!

Happy Easter! (He is Risen!)


  1. sic transit gloria penguin

    we, the pengy loving crowd, salute you.

    1. Thanks, jw! I figured, who better than a penguin to help Kevin deal with his PTSD, Survivors Guilt, and Culture Shock? All Buck Rogers had was a gravelly voiced pint-sized robot! "Beedee, beedee, beedee"!

  2. Maybe I watched too many Biblical movies over Easter --- the two Crystal Globes evoke saints in stained glass.

    Loved all these. All had a peaceful, sometimes playful, mood.

    1. Thanks, Oppo! You know, looking over these 'old' designs has given me a few ideas for new designs. Hmm... Stained Glass Globes?... definitely worth considering!
