I only changed the color of this photo (taken by film camera & scanned) when I noticed the odd heart-shape of the trees.
My hands xrayed with the assistance of my co-worker, Dr. Amanda Sayers. I have been wanting to take this xray for some time. Next week our office is becoming high tech with a new digital xray so I thought I would use one of the last 8x10 films and radiate myself for art. I talked some at work about HitRecord and my boss basically told me to go ahead but don't let OSHA find out.

Every morning, I wake to see a bedbug's hidden eyes transfixed on me.
My guarded mind says they're out for blood.
My lonely heart says I'm desirable.
"Let's dance on the sun and melt into each other's arms."
My interpretation of this tiny story. What should I change in my illustration?
Not quite yet ready for bed, she raised her umbrella over head in hopes to keep the stars at bay... and have a few more minutes to play.

1. Possible fatal cardiac reaction.

Prepare yourself :)
Final version of the Jelly Babies. It was pretty tricky to animate some parts of the text where there was no action, no characters for example. Hope it worked well.
If you notice I missed resources, please, let me know.
When I went to your grave today
the grass was nearly all grown back

Apologies for the technical difficulties. But FINALLY, this video has decided to encode and load and blahblahblah.
You may (or maybe not) have noticed that I haven't really hit record in a few days. Three weeks to be exact. It's because I noticed my record count was at 99 and knew that my 100th should be special.
Without further ado, I present my 100th RECord for hitRECord! This post-it intro has NO drawing, NO extreme cutting/curves, and NO blue tape. This intro is puuuuuuuure post-it with its original stickiness.
This took a couple of weekends to make, but it was worth it.
This intro is longer than my other ones so I invite video editors to chop it up and shorten it and such. Enjoy!!
Again by heart <3

I never considered that Little Red Riding Hood (or rather, as I know it, Le Petit Chaperon Rouge) was about a girl "straying from the path" (maybe because of the wording of the version of my chi...
An illustration for aimeecanto's tiny story 'Silence!'
'He wanted to scream to the world how much he loved her, but they were at the library, so he whispered.'
The way I pictured it with them hiding behind a book and being surrounded by books, I figured that it may as well be in a Library of Tiny Stories.
Jealous Stars illustration from ubespidermonkey's Tiny Story:

So once in a while, they cut the power.'

I thought the round bottom of the glass could be the big red hitRECord dot.
Newish to hitRECord, so I haven't seen all the gems of the site, but found honeyboy's text today and was inspired to make a poster :) I love his text because I think some line at the top applies to us all & I would like to think the last lines apply to every one of us <3
I tweeked the words a little to make it a more general message.
I know the one line comes out of the heart, but I personally liked it that way.. if you think other wise feel free to let me know
the fonts are arvo & jrhand from fontsquirrel.com (commercial use)

I love belcath1981's placement of the icons towards the bottom. My only adjustment/suggestion is to move the hitRECord logo to the sleeve. In fact, I would do this to a lot of the shirts.
Flip Flops = Summer. I took this picture of some flip flops with the hitrecord logo uploaded by HelloLindsayyyyy and I made some changes to that with photoshop so I was able to add 2 different design for it, If somebody wants that I upload the pattern just let me know. :D
I really like what belcath1981 has done with the neckties!
But they seem to be slightly more casual. I thought it could be cool if we had something that you could wear with a nice suit and still look real sharp and classy.
I wear hoodies year round. In the Summer, I love wearing jersey materialed (lighter weighted) hoodies.
We need to have a little red riding hoodie, right?! C'mon.
[UPDATE: Imagine this with black draw strings, and a hitRECord red button for the period. I will mock these additions up when I get a chance. Also, check out the WOLF's version in results.]

Jestferlaffs asked me to create some Hitrecord ties...so here you go Matthew...I hope this is what you had in mind...
This one is done at 3300x5100 pixels (or 11x17" at 300dpi) *I like it, but I feel like it is wanting something. Any ideas?* Thank you<3
I did this a while ago, but forgot to post it. Only remembered I had done it after seeing wirrow's comment on my bunny RECorders album.
. Hope you like it, wirrow :)

There are so many GREAT image records on this site and I think a page a day calendar would be great to show them off (en masse.)
I know calendar ideas have been proposed before, just wanted to make something simple.
Could include text records as well if you really wanted to.
The font that is not Trash Deco is District Thin.
I wear hoodies year round. In the Summer, I love wearing jersey materialed (lighter weighted) hoodies.
u might be tired of seeing this.. but.. i figured i'd run with my original plan & post it anyway ^__^ if a logo is needed might i suggest a tiny one.. on the back?
Stay tuned for a photo shoot which will feature this dress and a "Shadow" grafftiti wall inspired by the photos from the London show. It might be awhile until then hope you all like this layout. Dress sewn from a 1954 pattern with circles stitched on and text is a work in progress.
by the request of kouralilly, here's wirrow's remix of my remix of his illustration.. on a tanktop. hehhe. it's on a turquoise tanktop cos.. turquoise is awesome :)

Thanks. A small word but that sometimes is just really hard to say. I am one of those people that constantly are saying Thanks: Thanks dad for your help, thanks my friend for been such a wonderful person, thanks “you person on the street” for open the door, I am a grateful person with the life and with the people that is around me.
Since I joined Hitrecord almost 2 years ago, I am one of those people that say thanks to every single hitrecorder that gave me a heart, of course if it’s possible and if I can, but why is that? Well, there are a lot of reasons, first because I think that every person that are taking their time to hit the red heart in my records deserve a personal and honest Thanks, second because we, at hitrecord, love hearts, I am sure that I am not the only one that think like me, even now that I’ve been around for almost 24 months, my heart almost explode of joy and happiness when I sign in at HR and I saw this powerful red heart with a #1, #10 or #100 in my activity page.
Said that, maybe for some people is annoying that some hitrecorders, including me, are saying thanks to every single person in our records, but that’s how life works for me, that’s what I feel is the best way to appreciate the love and support of every single one of you, and it’s because YOU, yes you, are different to the rest of us, in a magical and fantastic way, you and me are unique, and you definitely deserve a direct thanks from me.
But Why I am talking all these nonsenses today? well, it’s simple, yesterday I was looking through my activity page, like I regularly do every single day, and suddenly I saw a heart from aszarkowski, and I realize that she gave me a heart in an old record that I uploaded like one year ago named The Tree at the beach, for the people that know me, it’s not a secret that I love the beach and that’s why I have a lot of records of sunsets and beaches, so I just went to the record to say thanks like a normally do and then I scroll down the page and below aszarkowski, I saw a heart of someone, honeyboy, and the date was: May 23, 2012, the day that he left this world to go and have fun in a better one. Immediately, like if someone punched me really hard I started to cry, and I thought: Why I didn’t saw this before? Why I didn’t say thanks to him? I felt really bad because I thought that this awesome and brave man, was giving us heart the day that he left us, it could be really great if I was able to say Thanks, honeyboy like I usually do with all of you, because he was especial as much as you are and maybe we could had a small talk about the beach and that specific sunset and that lovely tree that you can see in the picture (because I know that he and Inky love the beach as much as I do, and I want to believe that the image of the beach with the tree and sunset gave him some kind of peace and happiness), but life works in mysterious ways, and that’s how things happened sometimes. So, yesterday talking by Skype with Bara (Barush), I told her that the situation made me feel really sad but that I am sure that he knows that I really appreciate that heart and that I am always going to treasure this as a magical and special gift.
So, yes, I am a hearter but also I am A thankful person, you can be sure that you are always going to receive a sincere and personal thanks from me, that’s how things works in Gaby’s world anyway.
So, honeyboy, I wasn’t able to say thanks to you in the right moment, but today, here it is, like I normally do:
Thanks for the heart my dear honeyboy!! I really appreciate it :D
All the messages, songs and remixes that you are all doing for Niko are just beautiful, so I decided to make this video with some of the amazing records that we are doing for him, sorry if I missed somebody, but I resourced as much as I can, but I just want to say that all your records are just amazing!
RIP dear Niko! We'll miss you. Inky, we love you girl!!!
(It's best with headphones)
I miss you tons <3
Blazing star, travel far
Some day I'll end up where you are
Blazing star, leave a trail, leave a sign,
Blazing star, keep your shine
I'll follow you, I'll follow you
One day we'll be coming too.
But till then we'll wait and watch the sun
Till adventures and our time comes
Honey is so many things.
It's warm, homely, glowy gold,
Sweet, but not overly so.
Honey makes me think of fall,
And laughter over candlelight,...
Niko wrote this in a card he and inky sent to me about a month ago, but I'm pretty sure he would want to say this to everyone. <3
stay awesome, guys.
ps- i've posted this everywhere so sorry if you've seen this once or twice or a billion times.
In Honor of our late friend honeyboy. These were honeyboy's last words to me, and since they have that silly infectious quality, 'mixedtapes' suggested we make a t shirt out of them. So I took honeyboy's icon image and made a graphic design for, potentially, a summer collection tank top or T. The PNG file is included in the results page with transparent background.
This is the PNG file of my t-shirt tribute to honeyboy. I added quotes around his last words to me on the bottom. The original version has no quotes. I will include both the non-quote-symbols version, AND the colorized version (which has the background color as the color of t-shirt I prefer for the image) in the sources of this record.
how do i miss someone that i've never met?
The only thing I remember about honeyboy is his record stating he was a heart(er). Maybe that's all I needed to know.
Honeyboy, on to the next sweet adventure.
I am sorry to say I haven't really been that active of a participant of late due to school work, graduating, and feeling so burned out creativity has taken a back seat while I rest. But I've bee...

An illustration for wirrow's wonderful tiny story "a commercial edge".
"You have reached the edge of the world.
Please stand behind the barrier
and take no photos."
i made this for niko and inky. it's not much, but i couldn't stop crying and wanted to channel my grief into something uplifting; i barely made this, it sort of just made itself, but. i wanted to make you both a sunrise, out of niko's candle flame. never before have my heart and art overlapped as much as they are with this. as it fell into place, my tears dried, and a profound feeling of thanks rose in their place. RIP niko, and THANK YOU both for shining on me. <3
based on this quote that never fails to help me keep going:
“Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.” - Rabindranath Tagore
and in the morning
they shook their pillows
all the dreams they lost
that night would tumble out.
