Why did I think 'pacman -Syu' as a way to 'start the week fresh' was even remotely a good idea.

rainy sunday โ€ฆ continued with the typewriting stuff. i liked the idea from my first try with the textile pattern, so i continued a bit. I made some basic elements first and then merged them into a larger image on a grid. Itโ€™s more like a flying carpet now or wavy glitch something. I also used other glyphs that give it a more dense, textile like appearance (/, %, ยง). I didnโ€™t want to in the first place, but things got very complicated VERY fast and i had to use a text-editor for composition and as template for typing line by lineโ€ฆ :idle:
