I haven’t posted any generators for a while and since life can’t be all whine and no play, here’s a few online image gadgets for you to check out. The MP Change website is really wild (Clooney in the afro). You upload a photo (simple straight on portraits work best) and it animates it and then you can add wigs, hats, and facial hair. Unfortunately, you can’t save the actual moving picture, but it’s still a lot of fun! Just click on the pics and go make your own:)
This weeks Illustration Friday topic is Contagious. With the whole Swine Flu epidemic in the news so much this past month I couldn’t help but wonder how George was dealing with it. As you can see, he is somewhat concerned. And who can blame him, with his busy schedule he doesn’t have time to get sick!
The website Illustration Friday gives people a topic every week and you illustrate it using any medium. It’s designed to jump start creativity at any and all skill levels. I started doing it because I was in a long term creative funk and it really helped get those juices flowing again. As my mom got sicker, and I got busier with my iStock photography, I stopped participating. Yesterday I felt like doing something just for fun and did another George collage. I’ve done a whole series about you-know-who on my Tales of George blog. Okay, no more words, this is Wordless Wednesday afterall 🙂
The other night while at a friend’s house for dinner I sampled a cheese and fell head over heels in love. Now I’m not a particularly cheesy person (so I like to think anyway), and I’m even a little lactose intolerant, but this cheese was so yummy I made Sarah write down the name so I could pick some up. It’s called Dubliner and has a slightly sweet, nutty taste. I like it sliced thinly on gluten-free crackers, but it’s also great with apples, wine, and even beer. I’ve read that it melts well too so I plan to try it in some recipes. So move over George Clooney and bring on the Metamucil, this babie has a new crush;)

I was reading the paper this morning and it said that Robert Downey Jr. likes to Google himself, “…I do have that shortcoming. It’s really fun.” So I’m setting up a trap for him, kind of like Ellen did for George Clooney (okay, exactly like Ellen did for George). I made the pics of Mr. Downey Jr. at funphotobox.com, a free website with tons of cool templates you can add your own photos to. So click a bunch on this post and leave a comment too even if you don’t like the guy (but how couldn’t you? he ‘s almost as cute as George) so his Google bot will find us!
P.S. I should be writing right now, I have one week to finish my novel if I want to enter it in the Amazon contest, this post is a total ADD/avoidance/denial/anxiety driven exercise in poor time management..sigh…
