Took a pic of a toad, make it stand out. Maybe I'll do something more with him later. Flying through space? Visiting the seven wonders?

My friend's daughter, Maggie, saved me from certain doom, when a giant fireball suddenly appeared from the ocean! of my earlier attempts at image compositing. Not my best work, but it was fun to make.

Repaired image

Here's an image that seems to have suffered some scissor damage! But with some time, and patience, that portrait is better than new! Even the arm is only mildly disconcerting, when you stare at it. Don't stare.

This logo, which is a fake logo for a real company, was done to practise my GIMP skills. I will continue adding more to the series.

Please feel free to comment and let me know what you think. If you're interested in having your logo redesigned, contact me for a quote.

alexis' eyes

It annoys me when people sit in front of me in a lecture hall and switch from one window to another with that super-slick Mac swipe. It's appealing if you're looking at it, but the motion is distracting to other people.

In the spirit of attracting the attention of people behind me, I used Gimp to modify an image of Alexis Bledel that I found on the internets. Click on the image to see full size. I hope you enjoy it!


Custom QR Code

I made a custom QR code for my site, and one for a local business. It's my first and second attempts at modding QR codes and the second one reminds me of old video games. Very old.

Logo Design Proposal - GIMP 2.6

Submitted by jean-paul on Sun, 11/04/2012 - 01:09

I did this logo for a local gourmet coffee roaster business. I'm not sure if they'll use it, but I thought it looked nice. I might change it so that it looks like a piece of paper by enlarging it and adding a drop shadow, maybe some skew? I've never done that before, so I can only imagine how it's supposed to be done. It might even be ok if I create a frame in a layer mask and blend the outside edges in to transparency.
