Jellyfish

Introduction: And now for something completely different...it's a shame I don't have the comic talent of Monty Python. In fact, I think I have the inverse. I can take a fabulous joke and make is terribly un-funny. Anyway, I'm not sure why jellyfish make me think of Monty Python, but it might have something to do with the fact that I've been blogging for so many hours. ~Kristin.

Author's comments: Jelly fish fascinate me. Shortly after a family trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, I started working on this piece. There are a few things going on in it. It's all drawn programatically, including the gradient fill. Some of my favorite jellies are bioluminescent...they light up! If you watch closely, you may notice that mine light up too.

Drag your mouse around the stage, to stir things up a bit. I borrowed some code from Keith Peters for that effect.

Love it! I like jelly fish too ... as long as they aren't stinging me!

These are fun. I love how they look buoyant but floating...
