The mark of the unicorn

Saturday, December 8th, 2012

It’s been a long while since I’ve posted, but hopefully, there are still one or two of you out there who understand the value of a good RSS feed. I’m back to write about a book I’m enjoying, with the following cryptic title: 10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10 If this line of BASIC code […]

Victoria is burning

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

A collection of images from the Victoria Australia Bush Fires group on Flickr. Interactive version here. Thanks to Pamela Fox for alerting me to this group. UPDATE: These photos have been pulled from Flickr, apparently due to copyright issues. If I find a similar collection, I’ll post an updated mosaic.

Here’s a larger Obama/McCain mosaic. And here’s the first one I made, featuring David Byrne and Brian Eno. UPDATE Here are some more I made on Saturday. Flag/Obama […]

Gene Simmons is made of kittens

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

I made this mosaic today. It’s Gene Simmons, made of kittens. The photos were recent additions to Flickr that had the tag “kittens”. Not all of them are actually of kittens. There’s a cool photo in the upper middle showing recent “top searches”, and a few burlesque dancers mixed in with the kitties. My friend […]

Mini Kaleids – Krazydad Style

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

There’s a group over on Flickr called Mini Kaleids – Krazydad Style that collects images produced with one of my kaleidoscope toys (found on this very website). The pool is up to 700 images, so I thought now would be a good time to build a Coverpop mosaic of all that eye candy. Here it […]

Flickr: Faces in Places

Friday, October 26th, 2007

I was alerted to this group via Laughing Squid. Faces in Places is an awesome flickr group that collects photosgraphs of those serendipitous faces that pop out at you from the world of inanimate objects. I made a mosaic of all the images in the group, shown above. You can play with the interactive version […]
