So Paul needs a prettier blog (See: current blog)

We had one idea of a sort of Where's Waldo permaculture scene (With Waldo being Paul in overalls with the striped hat/shirt)

This is just one idea, however.

This thread is for images/drawing/favorite stills from videos that would be nice to top this blog---it could even be a collage, like Paul's page at Make it Missoula

Anyone feel free to contribute, or even create a header!

Ideal header image size for the blog is 940 wide by 198 pixels height. The 940 width is more important than the height, but that's the default size for the blog in it's current format. Format should be jpg, can also be png or gif, or a PSD photoshop file.

Ideally you would create your image file in the highest quality and then submit it. I'd be happy to optimize it for web via photoshop.

Raven,

I think that looks like a fun start! I especially like the little pig in my coat.

Here's a black and white banner I put together. I was looking to make something that would go well with the WordPress theme that the blog runs on.

Nothing too flashy. Comments much appreciated.

This is awesome!

Juan, I look super kick ass! I think color would be good. Something with a lot more going on.

Raven ... when Jocelyn saw that one she said "hearts, flowers and rainbows?" (I like the bear - arrrgh!)

Me as a smurf! Fun!

work in progress

NB portraits should not be taken with cellphones—for a decent close-up portrait one needs a tele of at least 80 mm focal length standard-format equivalent so that the subject does not look like a horse (no offense to horses)

Oh no! Did this lose momentum?

well the collage stuff is my specialty but it runs on a combination of multiple photo's
of people combined with back ground pictures (panoramic pictures) that allow you
to place those photo's into that scene. Too often however the person photo's are just head shots
or half body shots so that the artist has to totally improvise to bring it to life...

and don't forget a banner height (198 pixels ) doesn't give you as many options
because your limited in size right off.

my main point being ....the more photos you take of yourselves doing stuff
side view shots ect reaching for a control panel switch ect... riding a horse
or a fence......the more the imagination can run with it ....

i have been busy firing one isp and replacing it with another since the week end.
it's been modem hell---- which has now found closure.

because i am a thinker and have a much different view of time

i think we need to ramp up this whole thing....
and begin thinking about the

Paul Wheaton Permaculture Museum

where there are hands on displays of everything you talk about
and school buses that arrive daily

real visual examples of permaculture in action in Minature... from art
to scale models....

whats funny is... Jocelyn when i saw this picture of Paul
as a Man of artistic vision (out of control)
my doors to my imagination completely ripped off the hinges

i saw Paul as a Character in the "Lord of the Rings" Trilogy
so i had to make that of course too )
