Illogical Follies, See?

“Finger Man, of illogical follies, see?” animated GIF by @iamTalkyTina

So The Daily Create of yesterday, #tdc1980, said to make an Art about the fallacious reasoning of the politicians. So I looked at all the things that the Finger Man says when he is not sticking his finger up at the peoples, and I decided to make an Art of him out of all of the logical fallacies symbols. This is what they all look like.

It is always a nice time when someone goes to all the trouble to put icons to all the different categories of something, and so I took all of those 24 icons and and then made a mosaic out of the famous Finger Man picture.


Plus, like him, it is a black and white picture with no grey, but it also goes flip flop back and forth like he does. But if you look close, you can see that he is made up of illogical follies, see?

Here is a bigger image of my Finger Man picture, in case you want a big PNG one to read all the codes without the flashing.

Get Off My Case

If you are on my case because this is a yesterday one, well I was doing it yesterday and had all the little icons in layers in my Photoshop, but when I saved it for supper I saved it as a .png, they were all lost when I went back. So I had to start all over. Plus, those icons are tiny.

But How Did you Do It, Tina, You Say?

Well, first I was using an app on my iPad called Photo Mosaica, and it kind of worked, but I needed more grains of granularity to really see the scowl on his face.

So then I looked on my App Store for my computer, and found a different one called Mosaik with a k, and it let me do things like how many (which makes them smaller) and background go away, and use some or use them all. Plus I also tried “Weighted,” but it made them weird.

So all of this was a fun experiment, and it was fun to learn to use new apps to make Art.

One day I will make a picture of me made up of all my #TrueFriends. Because you are who your friends are.

Just like Finger Man is made of illogical follies, see?
