A noisy noise

Do you remember the little ditty from way back?

A noisy noise annoys but a noisy noise annoys an oyster most? All well and good. Totally incidental.

Well, maybe a tenuous link to my post today. I’ve been working on Ben Marriott’s Colour Bleed and checked the difference between using a Fractal Noise Blend (Soft Linear) and a basic grainy Noise at 30%. Ben likes his noise settings to be fairly low.

I like a bit of noisier noise.

A bit gritty, but that’s the modern world. Wise words from philosopher, interior decorator and parochial house-keeper, Mrs Doyle.

Derailed, as I am by the many innovations of Mrs Doyle, I often comment on how Mr Bee empties shopping from the bag to the worktop, “That cat food box-set really enlivens a dull worktop”. It’s not passive-aggressive at all. Fortunately, it’s taken very tongue-in-cheek and we both laugh. As Mrs Doyle famously over-shared on that one occasion… “I remember when my husband…(pregnant pause)… I’ve said too much”… example, I’ll take a leaf out of her book and say no more about my marital relationship. (Seriously, all good, REALLY, and I don’t have the Samaritans on speed dial).

Here are the results of a simple drop motion and bleed (well, not that simple, actually quite convoluted, but worth the effort).
