Cleaning up some files on my computer today, and came across these 3 aborted “infinite canvas” experiments in Flash with the tarquin engine. They’re a few years old, not all that exciting…gosh, I’m not really even sure why I’m posting them?
The first try was called “To The Ocean“:
The second was called “Mowing“:
The third was called “Birdseed,” and I actually still like it:
None of these reached for or achieved anything like what the Tarquin engine was designed to do. For that, check out this comic.
Are those block prints (linoleum?) in the Birdseed comic, or are they just designed to look that way? Love the abstract birds.

Just designed to look that way, but don’t tell anybody. ha!
Color me impressed. I was leaning more to the blockprint side than the made up side.
