i’ve been trying to engineer some wallpaper pattern designs by making regular repetition look random. and then i tossed some willow leaves onto a sheet of paper, and they were immediately so much more random, and so much more beautiful, that i’m not sure how much motivation i have to continue engineering. that happens to be the story of my life.
