HALO

A friend wanted me to throw together a quick edit for a poster. Being the nice guy I am I said sure and went to work on the image she sent me.

This is the result:

Halo poster

I wasn’t aware of the photo’s origins until after I sent her the completed work. I feel bad and would like to give the orginal artist credit. The original image belongs to harbaugh79.

How did I find the original artist? Images from Flickr have a distinct filename. They look something like this:

258080280_187bf237ed_o.jpg

If you take the first section of that file name and add it to www.flickr.com/photo.gne?id= you get a complete URL pointing to the page where the image originated. (e.g. www.flickr.com/photo.gne?id=258080280) Pretty neat huh?

Art on the Wall

I was working in a professor’s office this morning when I noticed a piece of art on the wall. It was a class project I completed last semester. How wierd. I didn’t think much of it, and yet here it is hanging in the professor’s office. We were instructed to take a photograph of a nature setting and create a paper collage out of different cardstocks. Using line and shape to show the scene. Mine was of some large round rocks in the forground, leading to a field of grain, and farther back a jagged mountian range. I guess I did a good job!

Randomness

I figured out how to use some php to allow for random Banners. Check it out! Hit refresh a few times. It was really easy to set up, once I figured out that I had typed “random.php” instead of “rotator.php”.

Edit: If you’d like to use the php on your own site, you can download it from Automatic.

Interface Design

I want to design interfaces. That is my dream job. I want to take an emerging product and make it work as it should. I want it to be powerful and easy to use. I want it to be fast. I want it to be fun. I want it to fire off that one neuron in the human brain that makes a person go, “Neat”
