The more I looked at the color and pixel data in the image.php file, the more convinced I became that I could write something that could draw the image.

I played around with canvas to see what I could do.

After seeing this Art of Creative Coding video, I wanted to get started on whatever it was the people in it were doing. Cinder was one of the programs mentioned, so I downloaded it.

Where It All Began

I’m not sure whether it started with Cinder or with ChromeExperiments. Both are likely where my interest in programming began.

This PBS video in particular was a turning point,

When I first saw it, I thought it was the most amazing thing ever! I didn’t know coding could be used to create art!

My mind was blown with this whole ‘creative coding’ thing.
I have been hooked ever since!
