Last week my buddy Mike called in a artistic favor I owed him to get something pretty for the top of his soon-to-be-live blog. He didn't really have any firm ideas, other than he wanted it to be something that would be appropriate for both his musical and computational pursuits.
It doesn't always happen, but it did this time: I had a brilliant idea. Punchcards. Musical score. Both covered in dots. BAM.
I think I still have a few tweaks to make though. I like the partial transparency on the punchcard and musical staff details, and I think the dots come off a bit too 'hard' in contrast. Also I'm not sure about the background. It's copied from an aged piece of paper, but it doesn't actually look much like an aged piece of paper. I may have to do something about that.
