How was your weekend? Hope it was fun. 🙂
Today’s image choice comes to us from jazzbaby1. She submitted four pictures and I chose one of them. Jazzbaby1 wrote, “I’m kind of a sucker for photos where he’s actually doing something.” Thank you, jazzbaby1! In case you didn’t know, she has a blog about music and poetry: http://funkybluedandelion.blogspot.com/
Last night I had a weird dream and this banner is partly a result, LOL! I’m not sure whether or not it translates to the waking world, but it was a real blast making. 🙂 I want to try some of these techniques again and polish them up. Maybe a genie will pop out if I polish hard enough. 😉
The sound clip comes from the song “Rich” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Please click the image or text link below to be taken to the Flash banner.
One of the ideas for this banner comes from RavenRoseBeetle who commented on a Graphic a Day in May blogpost. Thank you RavenRoseBeetle! Also in those same comments, Lizzie explains how the “levitating” effect in this photoshoot was accomplished.
The banner plays rather choppily but I didn’t have time to fix it. I think it’s because the file is too big so I’ll remember for next time. The effect is kind of cool though.
This concludes our 14 days of animations based on still images. I really appreciate your participation, whether it be submitting images, posting comments, sharing on twitter, facebook, blogs & forums, and simply for stopping by. 🙂
I am planning on a second project based on your patterns submissions and I’ll be soliciting more pictures in the next few days. See you soon!
P.S. If you’re so inclined, the eBay charity auction for the Richard Armitage quilt ends soon: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Richard-Armitage-Patchwork-Quilt-Original-Unique-/130646609764. Proceeds benefit Project Linus which is a very worthy cause and I have personal experience with them from a previous job working with homeless children.
