  [a GIF animation of a groundhog looking for his shadow]

(an animated GIF)

February 02, 2005

Well, the groundhog saw his shadow today. We're supposed to have 6 more weeks of winter. No shit. It'll take that long for things to thaw out here. On the other hand, it did get above freezing today. A rarity. So I drew a few images and decided they should be animated. I used gifsicle to do it, it's a cool program. This is a departure for me, since I normally use PNG format rather than GIFs (for no good reason). Oh, and in the last frame, it's supposed to be snow that's covered the land and the groundhog. The idea is stolen from Bone (all the snow falling at once).

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background image, just click on the image.
