when rudy's rich all his words will be in clouds

I love this. Choose a selection of text that you want to make into 'word cloud art' and go here. I decided to choose a chunk of text based on Uath, the hawthorn tree (May 13 - June 9), that goes along with my latest drawing. Here's the artwork:

And here's the cloud (click image to see full size in Wordle):

More great stuff from Rudy:

skateboards + light
toy cars + paint

I'm pretty convinced that one day Rudy will be rich from all this. How rich? According to Rudy:

When I'm rich, this will be my apartment.

very cool video for a super amazing touch screen computer (which I
will have, when I'm rich)

Starry Night on Second Life (which will be my virtual home, when I'm rich)

Bar code art (which will be featured on everything I buy, when I'm rich)

I love wordle! I've done several, but I didn't paste the codes;maybe I should.
By the way, when you see Rudy, give him a thankyou hug from me cos he often makes me laugh.

Dinah: It's kind of addicting, isn't it?

Jana: Thanks. My favourite is the skyline bar code.

Cynthia: I wish it was me but Rudy gets all the credit.

Kiki: Thank you!

May you gain the riches to acquire that apartment. I love it.

BTW, a Lon Wood anecdote. Lon once told me that when he was a kid working at the Vancouver Sun he wss in charge of getting Len Norris's cartoons set for printing. Periodically he would add a little extra line just to make his own imprint. He was never found out.

Rudy is just so ubercool. Saw your series on the Effusion Gallery website, looks stunning!

How DO you find all this stuff??

I think that epic scavenger hunt apartment would cause me to have a nervous breakdown within an hour of moving in. I wanted to scream just looking at the website! (I hate those sorts of games - don't know why. They freak me out.)

Ian: That apartment's for Rudy, not me. You guys don't pay really close attention to the words, do you? You obviously only come for the pictures and that's OK, too.

Ellen: Oh! They posted some more! I just emailed the last two so they should all be there tomorrow I hope (and I know you read the words, too).

Alda: Oh no! Someone else who only reads the pictures! I give up. My next post is going to be entitled: NO> I DON'T FIND ALL THESE> RUDY IS A REAL PERSON> READ THE WORDS> :)

Funny. Your "word cloud" art resembles your "real" art. In a way. Mainly in color. But also in concept.

I will have to try this.

I agree with you on the bar code art. When I'm rich, I'll spend a lot. And the objects I buy will be laden with bar code art.
