Hector is a cube-frog from IKEA. He is the best!
He’s sort of my large, square mascot. Expect him to make the occasional appearance in future tutorials.
This particular graphic came about while experimenting with mosaic effects. Aside from the photo of Hector, everything’s Photoshop-generated, and this file’s rapidly approaching 30 layers. I even managed to use several filters that normally fall well within the “Tacky Awful Effects” category: Patchwork, Clouds and Motion Blur. Lesson of the day: all in moderation, all in moderation.
