ABOUT THE ART

Just finished up this commissioned piece of Leonardo of Pisa, or Fibonacci. I failed Geometry in high school and had to repeat it, primarily because I doodled instead of taking notes. So, for me, getting payed to draw mathematicians oozes irony :)

Will you be doing a series of these? Forgive me- nerdy mathematics joke.

That's kind of an irrational question, isn't it?

Just noticed that Geoffrey went off on a tangent again...just amusing myself...
Geoffrey Agrons commented on September 29, 2011 9:29pm
I blame myself for this thread. Anyway, fantastic work, Will!

Yes great work. Sorry, couldn't help it either.

Beautiful,the placid look on his face is great and so is that little spiral down at the bottom where the bird and butterfly wings and the leaves seem to be growing out of it. I also love the small bursts of black "finished" looking bits framing his face and on the butterflies leaping out of the lighter, sketchier map of the whole drawing - it feels like a little wave of clarity growing out from him in bits here and there in a sea of half-formulated theories. You should send a link to your math teacher! :)

very cool.

haha Great thread to come back to. Thanks everyone. I enjoy wordplay so no apologies! I just wish i knew more math words so i could join in. @ Heather: i thought about emailing it to my math teacher haha, alas she was a good teacher and i was a terrible student. It was those grade-school teachers who were downright sinister.

I was the guy who asked Will to make this for me, and to his credit -- I gave him a pretty vague description of what I wanted... "This portrait, with Fibonacci sequence examples and spirals in the background... in your style!"

I am so happy with it.

Thank you again, Will!

It made me think of you in your math class, you may have retained more than you think..

HEATHER that's AWESOME. seriously, that video is awesome. I've been arguing for the doodle's legitimacy since forever. Thanks you so much for sharing this vid!
