Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Be Stenciled Or Be Penciled

This picture started from an experiment with circles, using paper, pen or pencil and my latest toy back then, a stencil of circles, in black and white. Each ~horizontal row is made from very-close-to-the-same size circle with the row it below using a slightly smaller circle. I tried to make the circles just barely touch to the same degree. This 8x8 curved trapezoidal shape was a pleasant surprise. I made several other designs using the this technique, but I have only scanned this one into the computer so far, and then took it from simple monochrome circles to a textured 3-D like surface.

I checked the definition for trapezoid, and it requires a pair of parallel sides. A similar new vocab word (for me, not from me) today is the word "trapezium", which is a four sided irregular quadrilateral with no sides being parallel, all sides being different lengths. But my newly minted adjective of trapeziumial appears to be new with no matches in a Google search. It is easier to pronounce if you put the accent on the "um".

So this is my warped geometrical answer to the expression, "Be there or be square", - "Be stenciled or be penciled".
