For this, the nineteenth installment of my daily blogging binge, I’m previewing another unhinged animated gif, inspired by the first guests in my week of reblogs.
You’ve met Todd and Dustin, the pair of writers who I featured in Monday’s post
This is them.
Well Dustin was admiring the work of The Woolhouse Boys on Friday, so I did him and Todd the honour of sweaterising them, like this…
…but that didn’t seem quite enough, somehow, so I decided to go one step further.
The beauty of all this mucking about with animation apps and editing tools is that I learn new skills every time. For instance, I realised that if you’re going to cut someone’s head off and leave a big hole in the picture, you need to reconstruct what would be in the background, if the head wasn’t in the way to start with.
All this fiddly photographic manipulation resulted in a rather warped and surreal reimagining of the beautiful garden in which our heroes were seated when the original photo was taken, but I hope that’s upstaged by the Gilliam-esque animation in the foreground.
See what you think.
I’ve yet to decide what, if any, the theme will be for my final full week of March’s marathon, but one thing’s for sure, it’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge tomorrow, so I’ll see you back here for that.
