That's a bit weird. My only stop motion animation (for class about 35 years ago) was an homage to Eadweard Muybridge. I ran an animated paper horse across a grid, and interspersed/substituted it with a clay horse running, then some footage I shot at a stable of a running horse.

Now with your post, I wonder if many students opt for some sort of nod toward Muybridge.

I would love to see that. Do you still have it?

Nope (and it was on 8mm film, btw). It was lost with a lot of my young stuff in a basement flood many years ago. I really liked that film class, taught me a lot about different aspects of film making. I shot most of it outside on the back stoop, because it needed lots of light. The paper animation was held down with rubber cement, so I could stick the limbs down again and again. I had the Muybridge book out from the library, to follow along.

I went to a somewhat tony midwestern high school for the times, IIRC. They had lots of extra classes that many schools nowadays seem to have dropped for budget reasons.

I made a wreath bow, my first bow making attempt. Not sure if it will make the finale on my first wreath, but it's not nearly as shit as I expected. I also painted a little wooden ornament disc to look like a peppermint with the swirl template I found on this lady's cute blog http://cobbcottage.blogspot.com/

I am thinking about tie dying a tree skirt for Kiddo's tree this week.

Okay my prof posted it, actually CP she was the one that asked for Muybridge, we were just the only group to go at it with abandon.


Oh and we only had a sucky little webcam to work with. I wish we had the reel deal.

I was bored, so I made an alien-ish "font" in Paint.



Probably would be quite hard to decipher - it's phonemic.

Do the related symbols (like the "2" in various configurations) indicate some sort of family of phonemes? Is there such a thing as families of phonemes?

The shapes are for almost all of them related (to lesser and greater extents) to the Roman forms, and the ones that are similar are either similar shapes in the Roman alphabet, or phonemically similar. Two are identical with their Roman forms (one of those is not in the English alphabet, however).

And the symbols that are stacked on each other are just for saving space - they're just two symbols in sequence. The first symbol is a capital letter (you can see the lowercase also).

I do too. I used to make fonts myself, when I was younger (fontmonger, IIRC). Just English ones, though. It was, I think, a good way to understand interactions of form and function, with usability being my driving goal. I think it's a fine thing to mess around with.

Shouldn't things you make be useful? I don't think I want to make something EVERY DAY unless I need it or them.

I have been thinking of splurging and buying a handful of big fat pillows so I can have a pillow fort.
