This site is simply a fun diversion and a nice way to take a break during a stressful day. How does it work? Well, just press any key to start and then trail your mouse around the screen. (This does require a Flash player. If you don’t have one, get it here for free). Magically, your mouse starts to make an ink trail that follows after your cursor!
You can even change the color of the ink by left clicking with your mouse. If you let your mouse linger in one spot you’ll notice that the ink gets thicker. Leave it there long enough and you’ll have a big ink blob. Move your mouse around quickly and you’ll have a thin ribbon of ink.
So, what was the inspiration for this? Well, Jackson Pollock was. He was an abstract artist who lived from 1912 to 1956. You can learn more about him here. This site gives you the opportunity to try your hand at his style of painting.
All in all, it was a lot of fun to play around here. If you want to save your work, finish your art and then press the Print Screen button on your keyboard. Then paste it into the Paint program that comes with most computers nowadays. Then save it. Or you could just print it out. Either way, it’s fun!
