Speed reader – Visual Assignment 347: Photo It Like Peanut Butter

I used an old Weekly Shōnen Jump as source material for Speed reader. I like it’s economic black ink on pulpy multi-coloured paper style. I also thought the Weekly Shōnen Jump imagery would be able to withstand a drastic reduction in colour palette; a byproduct of balancing the constraints of the gif file format, image quality and file size of the final exported animated gif. While thumbing-through the pages, I used the burst-feature of my DSLR to capture some frames. I then used Photoshop to import the frames, adjust tone,…

Emre5807’s Twitter update said it all. He had captured Jim Groom. Surely it can’t be true? I felt that there was only one thing for me to do. I had to track down Emre5807 and rescue Jim. I could always look for Kim Droom later. I had seen Giulia Forsythe’s excellent recommendation of the industry standard hacker tool Hacker Typer.

Did Jim get lost searching for Emre5807 the infamous ds106 hacker?

I guess everyone has heard by now about the DS106 website being hacked earlier in the week. If you haven’t, go and read Jim Groom’s blog post. It’s serious stuff.
