Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| Tardis Rack
September 21, 2014
OK, this was a picture of me and a computer rack. It reminded
me of a TARDIS. And with a little photoshop magic, it became one.
As I played with the opacity setting on the layer with the TARDIS,
I realized it'd be cool to show the TARDIS transform into a rack,
simulating its chameleon circuit functioning, which required making
an animated GIF. But then that looked a little boring and I decided
the light on top needed to illuminate. And thus I added that.
However, what remains is for me to provide the following list:
Top 5 Comments About This Picture:
5. While more modern, it lacks the panache of a 1963 English Police Box.
4. Frank is a doctor, not The Doctor.
3. Frank finally gets the TARDIS' chameleon circuit to work.
2. Time travel: the ultimate solution to retrieving deleted files.
And finally, and obviously:
1. "Nice rack!"
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.
