I wanted to look into the intersection between graphic design and code. I found a program called Processing, where you can code in Java, C++ or Python. After trying a few simple things, this animation seemed to be pretty cool:

The code for it is below. There are two functions that automatically run,
`setup()`

(runs once like `__init__`

) and `draw()`

(continuously runs). So I just
continuously increased the radius at which that ellipse is at, as well as it’s angle with
a couple sines and cosines to make it dynamic.

```
import math
import random
class DrawEllipse():
def __init__(self):
self.angle = 0
self.r = 1
def draw_circle(self, r=50):
# increase radius and angle incrementally
self.angle += 0.05
self.r += 0.1
# get cartesian coords
x_coord = r * math.cos(self.angle)
y_coord = r * math.sin(self.angle)
# color and draw ellipse
fill(10, 50, 150)
ellipseMode(CENTER)
ellipse(x_coord, y_coord, self.r * math.cos(self.angle), self.r * math.sin(self.angle))
def get_angle(self):
return self.angle
d = DrawEllipse()
def setup():
size(300, 300)
background(20, 20, 20)
def draw():
translate(width / 2, height / 2)
d.draw_circle()
```
