Remember the post I made a while back on how you could take words and put them into an awesome collage?
WELL. I figured out in photoshop how to make an different version using the same basic idea an concept. Except kindasortareally cooler.
[& why yes, I do love this song].
It’s not the cleanest photoshop job in the world, but I’m overall really happy with it. : )

My stick fingers click with a snicker
And, chuckling, they knuckle the keys;
Light-footed, my steel feelers flicker
And pluck from these keys melodies.
We’re going over PhotoJ in class. It’s so much harder then I thought it’d be, but it’s pretty fun as well. I decided to make my brother practicing his guitar the subject.
I think I like the results, though I did cringe when I had to massively bump up the ISO. : /
The other day, I found this spiffy little website called Wordle. You stick text in, and an image with a “word cloud” comes out. It’s really rather fun to play around with. The only problem with the site is that you can’t download the image, so you have to take a screenshot and crop it instead.
I entered in the text to one of my favorite songs in the world, “Your Guardian Angel” by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and came out with this. And if you haven’t heard the song, go listen to it. It’s beautiful. ❤

I’m really not terribly into self-portraits, but after listening to Owl City’s “Dear Vienna” five bazillion times and after visiting a graphic-art-focused college, I had to give this idea a go. Picture initially edited in Picnik, then further edited in GIMP.
