JW's Pictures and Patterns Site

Site Updated March 2015



Welcome to my site.

This is where I showcase the various images I've created over the years pursuing my hobby of using maths to create patterns. Wherever possible I've tried to provide explanations of how the patterns are generated and in some cases I've provided source code that you can download and adapt. Most recently I have been learning how to render 3D images using WebGL.

The site also contains some photos from some of my holidays, artwork by my brother and the fruits of my brother's butterfly hunting around the United Kingdon and in the West Indies.

Please Enjoy

My PhD (work in progress).

See my Mandelbrot jigsaw. Max had this made for me from one of the images on this site. Click on the image to see the finished jigsaw.

December 2015:

Jan 2015: I've created a gateway page for the WebGL content, which includes a 3D maze, a mandelbrot generator and Neil's WebGL artwork.

October 2014: I've started writing a 3D renderer for the javascript maze using WebGL. The 2D version is still available.

October 2014: New holiday photos, featuring Edinburgh and Newcastle plus the Cheviots. Click here to view.

May 2014: Replaced the old Java Forest fire applet with one a new one written in Javascript and using the HTML5 canvas control.
