K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Welcome to this Bank Holiday Monday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge wherein we find the results of my prompt from Friday; Movement.

I have been so busy over the last couple of weeks, (hence this late post) with moving house and generally trying to sort out all our stuff from the hastily packed boxes, so I’m using a gif I made to accompany the start of (yes, you guessed it) Twin Peaks.

I’ll be honest, unless you’ve seen the show this will probably mean nothing to you, so you’ll just have to appreciate it on its own peculiar merits, but it meets the brief of movement very literally so that’s good enough for me.

K’lee’s post is HERE, but now I’ll let you have a go…

*****
To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.

Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

March of the Internet Nobody, day twenty four: Friday doodle gif…

Just making it in under the wire, for today’s gif post to still be relevant, so I’ll keep it short and say; here’s a doodle gif for Friday.


Have a good weekend, see you tomorrow.

March of the Internet Nobody, day twenty three: Giving the gift of gif…

So I finally had someone take me up on my offer to craft a quick gif for them, namely Deborah Drucker from over at Notes Tied To The Sagebrush, which I’m premiering here, prior to handing it over to her to use as she wishes.

I decided to go with simple, apposite and vaguely comical, using the header image from Deborah’s blog as a background for a fairly basic stop frame animation. I hope she’s pleased with it and I hope that you like my fourth quickfire gif of the week.

See you tomorrow for the Cosmic Photo prompt and more giffage.

March of the Internet Nobody, day twenty two: A gif at the end of the tunnel (flashing images)…

Today I am more encouraged, as I have had not one, but two tentative requests for gifs from readers who missed my original post, which I shall get around to in due course.

I already had an idea which I was playing around with for Todd and Dustin so I’m posting that today, but I shall start work on the requests tomorrow.

I apologise if the rather abrasive nature of this one isn’t for you, I quite understand; I was attempting to emulate, however amateurishly, David Lynch’s trademark strobe motif, which he uses to such powerful effect in many of his works.

March of the Internet Nobody, day twenty one: Can’t gif it away…

Well I must say, I’m slightly disappointed.

After my kind offer to make somebody a free, bespoke gif yesterday and every day this week, not one person requested my artistic services, even after the lovely bouncy one I made as an example.

But that didn’t stop me from mucking about for my own entertainment and since nobody else wanted anything animated for them, I made one for this Nobody instead.


However, the offer still stands and, since you’re just going to get a load of gifs this week anyway, why not snag one for yourself while you’re here.

March of the Internet Nobody, day twenty: The gif that keeps on giving…

After my latest burst of animated creativity last week, making the gif for Todd and Dustin that I posted yesterday, I had an idea for this week’s theme; a personalised custom gif giveaway, a gifaway if you will.

Yes I’m offering a lovingly crafted, unique, exclusive and free animated gif, for one person each day this week.

So, whether you’d like me to make something for you to display on your blog, or you just fancy a weird screensaver for your phone, the first person to make a request in the comments of this post will receive a mystery gif to do with as they please.
You may specify the photo to be used, or I can do something strange with your blog avatar, or you can have a lucky dip and just see what I come up with for you, it’s entirely up to you.

But what I do with the source material will be up to me, ok?

In fact, I will take the first two requests today, to give me a chance to get started on the week’s task, then the first request from each day after that until Friday.

I have already had a quick muck about and made one for myself, using an old dalecooper57 graphic from the early days of Diary of an Internet Nobody as an example of the type of thing that can be done with a single image, see what you think.

March of the Internet Nobody, day nineteen: Giffing woolly with it…

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.
