Ready, steady, go

In the past few days at college I’ve been designing the way patches would look inside the editor – doing this inside Photoshop rather than any programming environment.

Signs of life

There are several different parts of the whole Fnk project I’ve been working over the past few weeks. The primary part I’m working on, as required by the college course itself, is its research paper, where I list some of the goals of the project and what kind of solutions I’m looking into.
