don’t mess with the snowman

with permission, i submit a photo some friends of mine just posted on ringo:

i have confirmation: that IS an icicle stuck in his head.  it's a mohawk.  and, yes, a screw for a nose.  seriously the best snowman of my acquaintance, with extra points for the expressive pose.  he's either a formidable opponent or slightly overdramatic and prone to hysterical outbursts.  maybe both.  great watchman, either way.

thanks to B and G and the kids!

    lol thanks! funny you should be impressed with THIS banner, since it's the easiest one i've made so far. maybe because the hard work, the PHOTOGRAPHY was done by my awesome sis-in-law Aray. using gimp's magic wand tool, i selected and deleted the background, leaving just the duck. then i used a couple free utilities to create the gradient background: an eyedropper to determine the hex color value of my blog background, and then an online gradient maker. scale the resulting gradient to 940 x 200 and combine it with the duck in gimp. VOILA!sorry that was long, but you DID ask! 😛

    He reminds me of one of the poor snowmen from Calvin and Hobbes.
