ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Silk is a website that lets you draw smokey shapes (with or without symmetry) by clicking and dragging.
It’s like a Diablo 3 effect generator.
Wowwww – so pretty!

I wish I lived in Colorado.
Looks like there’s a Square and Compass in there, Mark.

Had a similar impulse :P

They need to add .jpg export to this

Makes me so wish I had this back in my dorm-room “consciousness astronaut” stage. And to think, I thought Mandelbrot diving on a 486 with Dead Can Dance on the tape deck was mind blowing.
It was man…it was!

Found this a few weeks ago. Wonderful stuff…but it seems only personally satisfying. =)
Actually i really like seeing what people are drawing. It’s a weird tool to use.
