Nametag – Drawn by JavaScript

This work is actually a little bit tricky. It is one of my Javascript assignment. My lecturer requires me to use JavaScript, which is a script programming lanaguage, to draw my name. It will be used as a real nametage in our lab. So I applied my favortie art school – impressionism to this design. It bascially uses dots to depict the shape of my name. I use shades as well to make it look more conceret.

This is one of my favorite impressionist painter – Georges Seurat, who is famous for his unique painting techinique – pointillism. The pointillism mainly uses dots to depict the shape of items. If you stand a little bit away from the painting, you can’t realize that the painting is drawn by dots rather than curves. What an amazing idea!
