S-P Spill

s-p's head exploded recently spilling hundreds of thousands of pixels into the Ortho-blogosphere.  Spokespersons across the world are saying that stick figures and crudely drawn graphs are washing up in parishes and monasteries around the globe.  Subdeacons and the Society of Bearded Catechumens Dressed in Black have been unable to cap the spill.  "If we do not stop the flow of Curmudge into the Blogosphere, it may bring about the extinction of the ponytail," said Subdeacon Barfy.  Moo the Turtle, spokestortoise for s-p said in a prepared statement: "       ".  

It is rumored, however, that there are plans to isolate the spill.  Stay tuned to this blog for future developments.

how did you do the cracked effect on your head?

David, I found a Photoshop freeware site called Gimp a few months ago that I started playing with. Then I bought a Wacom Bamboo drawing tablet for 100.00 that allowed me to draw using my computer and that was the beginning of Moo the Turtle and Orthographs. It took me a while to get used to drawing on a 5"x7" "tablet" while looking at a computer screen instead of a piece of paper and my hand. I only use maybe 5-6 of the most basic functions of Gimp (cut, paste, erase, draw, move), so basically to get the cracked effect it was cutting out parts of the picture, moving them, then erasing to make the "cracks". Its a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. I'm hoping to learn some of the more advanced features some day.

I've noticed some washing up on the blog-beach where I live too. Any plans to drill a relief well?

What part of your head do you think housed the venn diagram?

Society of Bearded Catechumens Dressed in Black... Curmudge...

I've nearly bitten the tip of my tongue not to read this aloud to my colleagues who would just be horribly confused.
