Life as Clay

Brain Warmer

leave a comment »

I have a tendency to have ideas that are larger than my implementation capacity. That leads to frustration, which leads to inaction, which leads to surfing the Internet for long periods of time without accomplishing anything. This was a brain warmer, to get me comfortable at the desk and thinking.

int startX = 0;
int startY = 0;
int maxDiam = 80;
int squareSize = 80;

void setup() {

void draw() {
  drawBall(startX, startY, maxDiam);
  // move to the next start position on the current row
  startX += squareSize;
  // Move to the next row
  if (startX >= width) {
    startX = 0;
    startY += squareSize;

void drawBall(int startX, int startY, int maxDimension) {
  float diam;
  diam = random(maxDimension/10,maxDimension);
  fill(random(0,240), random(0,240), random(0,240));
  ellipse(startX, startY, diam, diam);
