Artist/Programer: Joshua Davis

I should have posted this guy up a long time ago. I was exposed to him through a teacher, who actually managed to get Mr Davis himself to come give a two day workshop up here at Utah State University. He's super FLASH actionscript code savey and he creates a bunch of images and writes the code in the program to go in and randomly grab various images/patterns and shapes hes drawn and color, rotate and resize them. He then slightly tweeks and adjust the final products as needed. His stuff it amazing, and its even neater to watch the program create them on the spot. Everytime he hits enter it produces another 100% original compostion ad you don't know what it'll throw together next. He's a creative genius.

His website has stuff from way back when and you can see how he was a total trend setter. His 2004 stuff is what people are finally getting to now in design.

He's the originator of most navagation styles. The magnification effect on the dock in most Mac systems for example. That was him.

Here's his sight link

Here's a series of those randomly generated artworks he does. Check these out for sure
