04/08/09 COMPUTER ARTS - THE PROS OF PROCESSING
Great opening article in this month's Computer Arts featuring Glenn and a few other processing-heads. We are really chuffed about this, it's very fitting as this month marks a year since Glenn re-launched his personal website and re-birthed himself as a digital artist in the realm of Processing and generative animation. Glenn started reading
Computer Arts many years ago, so to get this far with his work inside it is a nice symbloic milestone.
Well Done Glenn! For more on the artcle you can visit Glenn's website HERE.
11/07/09 LIVE FOOTAGE OF PETER GABRIEL CONCERT VISUALS
Here's some footage, filmed by fans with mobile phones, of Peter Gabriel's recent South American tour. Glenn

The audio/video quality isn't great, but you can make out enough details and colour. There is a running theme of insects, growing vines, pulsating nerve networks and chaotic butterflies.
