Colored Circle Drawing Tool (9/28/2009)

I am particularly interested in created computation based art-making tools. This processing sketch is a drawing tool that creates circles of different colors (randomly selected) and different sizes (based on the speed of the mouse) that follow the position of your mouse. Click the mouse to start and stop drawing.

These captured frames show some of the images that can be created.

By moving the mouse quickly or slowly, the types of circles being made are drastically different. When the mouse moves off the screen and then re-enters, enormous circles are made that almost take up the whole screen. Turning drawing mode on and off by clicking the mouse gives the user that ability to make very deliberate strokes.
