I recently discovered the R Graph Gallery, where users can share the beautiful visualizations they’ve created using R and its various libraries (especially ggplot2). One of my favorite parts about this gallery is a section called Art From Data, in which users create works of art, sometimes with real data, and sometimes with a random number generator and a little imagination.

Last night, I completed a DataCamp project to learn how to draw flowers in R and ggplot2. Based on that, I created this little yellow flower:

Not only was the flower fun to create, it made me think about the data and how it would appear spatially. As I try to create new and more complex images, I have to keep building on and challenging those skills. It’s a good exercise to get you thinking about data.
