Continuing my obsession with that Picasso picture, I’ve created three small glitch-gifs.



I’m using a small processing app.




Adapted from some code found online.




I don’t see myself suddenly becoming a “glitch artiste” (ahem). But it is a fun aesthetic; even when the results are crap they can still be quite dynamic. Cheap thrills!

My end-goal is to adapt these processes to images of text, and then see where that leads.

To those ends, I started cataloging some glitch/processing-glitch sources.

Earlier this month, I took Monkey out for ice cream. He eats it veeery slowly – lots of licks, but only with the tip of his tongue.

Once upon a time, a long time ago, I used to scribble on post-it-notes and then scan them in.

Once, I combined the images into a gif:

and even put it online.

I’ve since lost the original images, or have them buried on the hard-drive of a computer I haven’t turned on in a year.

But just got them back!




I’ve recently worked with a javascript gif libraray, and I could probably do this myself (and maybe will later this year). But this tool already exists, and I wanted it now.

I’ve automated the process that build the gif in It’s preliminarily online at with the source-code, unsurprisingly, on github.

Internally the code is a mess, but represents my first time integrating a processing.pde with external javascript, use of the dat.gui library, use of a gif-library, use of drag-n-drop, web-workers. Instead of outputting individual frames that were stitched together in an external application, the code uses a library to put the frames together – with the first, unmodified image as the starter 1/2 second frame.

Here’s the revised gif:


original, for reference:


They’re not in sync, since the speed is faster on the revised version.

Generated by a project I’m working on. Encoding by the jsgif project.

Source image (seen briefly in animation):


No idea why I had this. Something to illustrate some arcane point arcanely in a forum, probably.

I have no idea where I got this. Probably google-images. Also found at Rave Flyers in the 90s. Which looks like FUN.
