New Diagram for MSc-X3 (math paper)

without comments

Brief: I’m particularly happy with this diagram… I had something along these lines in my head for a while, but I never could figure out how to draw it correctly. I never thought that simplifying it to three easy steps was the smarter thing to do.

Some Assembly Required.

Monet Molecules c/o Autotrace

A Monet Isopentenol c/o Autotrace

A Monet Isopentenol c/o Autotrace

Brief: Happy accidents make me happy– here’s isopentenol after grabbing it as an SDF out of PubChem, dumping it out into a PNG with Bioclipse, grayscaling it with GIMP— then converting it to an SVG with Autotrace (RO IT Systems)… It’s just pretty… like a Monet. Of course, I have to go back and make it look like a molecule again for a paper… but I’m going to admire the pretty little alcohol for a bit.
