Oranges & Lemons:
The Vector Graphic
The 22K animated GIF at right was exported from a
vector graphic file built by Dave Bregande, Greg Singer,
and me, John Hedges, using both CorelDraw and Adobe
Illustrator. As you can see, this isn't just a scanned image of the album
cover! It was painstakingly drawn, traced, and layered by hand in order to
produce something that can be easily and extensively manipulated and
animated. Each element of the drawing is a separate object composed of
lines and bezier curves.

This project took a long time, mainly because I kept
taking long breaks from it. Indeed, it was only because of Dave Bregande and
Greg Singer that it ever got finished at all! Greg drew Colin and his upright
bass by himself, and Dave put on all the missing elements and finishing touches
which ended up being at least 30% of the whole drawing. And so, to these two
guys, a big XTCware Thank You! Sure, only about 20 or 30
people will ever download this file, open it, and see what a fine job you both
did, but maybe that's enough.
