The photos at the top of the page (there are 4 different renditions, one chosen randomly at page load) were made from a picture of myself that I just played around with using various "artistic" filters in Adobe Photoshop.
Never give a geek a tool -- you know he's going to abuse it!
If you are truly interested, I can backtrack and figure out which filter (or combination of filters) I used for each rendition.
[P.S. For anyone bored enough to be wondering what the heck we're talking about, click on the the Bear Den link below and refresh the page a few times to see the various photo renditions of my puss looking back at you. And (shamless plug) you might as well read the blog entries while you're there.] [ May 04, 2005: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]
