a life poster of my very own

So a few days ago, I read instructions on the website of wŁnderkind Mike Matas on how he went about creating the 20" x 30" poster made up of 98 photos that hangs on his apartment wall.

I found the concept immediately fascinating, and linked to it here on my site just so I wouldn't forget about it. I had to have one of my very own, so I spent far too long on Monday night importing photos into iPhoto, putting together the 98-photo mosaic and attempting the exporting. I was working on my G3 800mHz iBook (with 256mb RAM), so the wait was rather long, and creating the pdf was not easy-coming.

In any case, by Tuesday evening I had a finished product, and I ordered a "life poster" (as Mike refers to it) of my very own making. I was insanely surpised to see that it had shipped the very next morning! I'm anxious to see the hard copy results, but if it's anything like I imagine it is, I'll be trying to find more occassions to give these as gifts.

Kudos again to Mike; between this and his work on the Delicious Library, this kid appears to be on the razor-sharp cutting edge of things.
