I picked up most of the contributed cutouts to add to this wallpaper. While this one has a vintage feel I have the layered file and can create variations of the background color and pattern to match the feel of the finished book. Also the images can be manipulated as far as opacity and such.
The original file is about 3"x3" at 300dpi and the cutouts can be revised to add or delete any characters.
I think my favorite creative cutouts are the RECord clothes. Especially the cassette tape dress, the umbrella and galoshes. So thoughtfully done and adoooorable! ;D
Ohhh yeah! I've uploadedvariations of this design but this image is the only one that will tile correctly.
I hope ya like it! Thanks for lookin' and recommending!
This is the first time I've ever made a pattern and let me tell you it's a bitch to make. Anyways, I wasn't sure what to do with the background so I left it transparent.
yes-you-am's forest papercut really set this REmix in motion.

Sinnamin challenged me to illustrate her cute tiny story, "The Scared Cloud". Here is what I came up with! I hope you like it Sinnamin!
The Mother Shadow, Lenkus, sends the small shadow to the land of the Fireflights for help with his journey and fight against the tenebrae
This is my challenge from sinnamin! I recorded three different versions of her lovely poem Gloameo. The first is just my voice, the second a little more demonic, the third higher pitched and seems the most suited to some kind of animation should anyone be up to the challenge! See how this challenge game works? Yay! Enjoy!
I've been obsessed with Gloameo since I read sinnamin's poem. This is just a rough sketch to get the balcony scene out of my head.
I'm open to suggestions for these two. Let me know what you think.
megan_carnes challenged me to make a Jelly Babies "video storyboard" like I did for a new hevn about a year ago. I happily accepted:)
A few pieces don't exactly fit with the plot (i.e. the character sketches of the conquerors are put in with the text about conquering, I wasn't sure where to put the protesting RECords so they're at the end, etc.) but I think I got most of it. I really tried to use most of the REsources in the collab, but I know I missed some, especially the character designs and jellyland designs since I wasn't sure exactly where to fit them all in.
I think the best things to take out of this is where we have "gaps" so people can contribute more REsources for those and also where we have lots of great images already so people can start animating.
Also, please let me know if I accidently missed REsourcing your RECord in here.
This didn't really work out how I wanted it to, but I thought I'd post it anyways, in case it inspires somebody :)
I used sinnamin's awesome jelly babies hitrecord logo :)
I had this idea that can se used as a poster or for the postcard collab, I chose my favorite records of the Jelly babies collab (I made one for the shadows collab too) and I put them all in the same picture, I hope it can be used for something! :)
so i put together some stuff from here and there and came up with this. After this, the idea is to fade from black to begin the story "twas four...."
i didnt incorporate the hitRECord logo in the intro, maybe it would be in an animated form before the intro...
The Regularity is here! And I wanna give a huge bravo and congratulations to all of us for a successful Sundance 2012! We did it and they loved it. But most importantly, I am very proud of all the records that we made, they are all wonderful they make a great evening of short movies.
Now, as we always do, let's start remixing all the live records from the show! And let's keep the ball rolling on our RE: INDEPENDENCE collab. Use the discussions from the show and combine it with other work in the collab and let's keep making art regarding independence.
I also want to spotlight a couple new Collaborations.
JELLY BABIES is a great fucking idea guys! Composers, hop on board and write some music to Day Glo's incredible VO of Metaphorest's text. Illustrators, keep up the good work so animators can come along and start making a short film with your characters. And Screenwriters, let's begin adapting Metaphorest's text into a screenplay.
CITY AUTOPSY - check wirrow's new collab! Walk around your city and find treasure, as he says, it's open to interpretation!
And finally, it's a new year and I feel that this is the first time in a while where we have the breathing room to focus on improving our company. We have grown, in fact, we have out grown what we use to be and I am making plan for HITRECORD to accommodate that growth.
If 2011 was as killer as it was, just imagine what 2012 has in store for us.
Thank you all for being a part of it.

"And A New Earth" Reprise.
Third attempt at this collage. Mostly I've tried to clear up some of the awkward positioning of the pictures so that the piece has a better flow.
My thanks to everyone whose work was used to make this!
My PRINTER, my BFF!!! Hehehe / STRAWBERRIES (paper cut) - sinnamin / OFFICER.JPG - ChuckArnold / TEXT (sorta of) - Can't turn the lights off now REPRISE - script - gregorybrothers /
In response to Marke's request, here is a pattern that could possibly be used on the back of the paper doll cutouts. I set it up so that it could be made seamless without too much difficulty (by someone a little better at photoshop than me!) I messed with editing it a little bit, but than it started looking kind of hokey, so I thought I would just post the original instead.
Ok, one of my new year's resolutions was to learn how to make animations, my brother Rob, is really good with animations and he is teaching me, so here you have my first attempt of making any kind of animation, I made this one with my brother's help, I was thinking about Little Red, some blood and the wolf, and this is the result! LOL!I hope you like it guys, remember, it's my first time doing it, so be kind! :)
Just a small animated sequence with the Little Red Paper Cut (from sinnamin).
I'm not much of an animator but I gave it a shot... not sure if it's the best line of the story for it either, but the timing of it matched the length of the animation too perfectly. :P
Here is the Paper Cuts done by @sinnamin animated and the backgroudn are the trees from @UnusualSuspect.
Just decided to fiddle around with one of the Little Red illustrations by doing a stopmotion on windows movie maker. This is about as fancy as it gets.
The first little animation of the aviator charachter using Sinnamin's text . I will put my voiceover and the public domain footage up as well seperatley!
Oatmeal cookies! Half with drawings (Totallyjamie's PATTERN) and half with TINY STORIES :-)
Wait. WAIT wait. I'll resource it noooow!
Here's a cheery(?) illustration to get you in the Christmas mood! Based on a wonderful tiny story by sinnamin. Oh, and.. this is my 100th RECord. :)
All the other raccoons love Ramsay,
And they tell him so everyday!
For no matter what garbage food they bring him,
He whips it into something gourmet!
sinnamin challenged me to make an image to go with her story (which, by the way, if you haven't read and hearted yet - it is resourced below...i strongly recommend it! :))
i tried to get a shot i thought could work...i hope this does!
so-AnneMarije CHALLENGED me to illustrate Nancy's (sinnamin) tiny story The Little Zombie.
I did a simple blackline drawing, so that if anyone wants to add color, backgrounds, remix, shat upon, whatever-feel free.
I did do a very stylized character drawing-the child zombie and tiny story just felt that way for me. So this is my representation of her text-on to the next challenge!
I PROMISE it is NOTHING the same! Matthew (jestferlaffs)has me illustrating his lovely, ummmm, ahem Christmas shopping love story-read it! ;)

december 5th. tiny doodle. tiny story. tiny advent:
Before winter came and the tree went to sleep,
He gave the girl his last apple to keep
If he failed to waken in spring,
From this precious apple, new life could begin....
"And so the cactus stood,
arms wide open for a hug...
But no one dared to come near"
Better luck for next halloween.
"Much to her disappointment, no matter how many Princes she kissed, none of them turned into the frog of her dreams…"
(should I upload all the drawings?)
I wanted to make something to go along with this : )
I wish I knew video stuff so I could make a video for it, but it was still fun making this
That the Vampire loved his skeleton girl
Was an undeniable truth
But whenever he tried to nuzzle her neck
He invariably broke a tooth
Illustration for sinnamin's tiny halloween story ' Vampire Love'
I love this story but through illustrating it I've discovered that it's difficult to make a skull have an expression of concern.
The skunk prayed she'd find her prince one day.
But sadly, her aroma drove everyone away. ~Sinnamin
This is in response to tootwofoursquare's challenge "I challenge you to peruse the "Wreckage" collab and illustrate a tiny story, poem, or whatever you'd like! Have fun!"
Thanks for the challenge, tootwofoursquare!
How the Scarecrow wished he hadnt' scared away those birds.
For no one else would come to see him once they were gone.
The little seahorse looked up at the sky Like a bird, he wished he could fly So he built himself a hot air balloon And took the starfish to see the moon
I drew this a while back, and I saw sinnamin's Tiny Story, and thought they would go rather adorably together, so I placed the caption on the image. :D
You're gonna need some TISSUES!!! :-) :-) :-)
Made this for sinn. She's created all these cute bunnies, ADH put them together on a wallpaper... AND now everything is perfect! Hehe Hehe (I COULDN"T resist! Had to stop by for this one :-) / Now, I'm gone. / Luv you all princes and princesses!
I decided that I would use Sunday as my release from stress and taking a break from looking for work to visit HR. I will try to heart as much as I can and upload anything I have been working on. Just having a little fun with this one. I will be on and off today heating and uploading between running around and doing chores. I miss you guys.
Since days ago I was thinking what could be the best way of showing all these fantastic Bunnies made by sinnamin, and I realized that the best way is through a video, I hope you all enjoy it, I had so much fun doing it! :D
Sin, thanks for doing all these amazing bunnies for all of us! :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!!!
Nancy, I hope you like this! Your bunnies are so cute. I will probably have to make a new version some day cause I know you will make more :)
so I mixed up some results of "hedgehog and potato bear" and redraw it.it's sad,I'm sorry :/
Maybe Cactus and Balloon can be involved in this.Maybe the story is not finished yet.
so thanks sinnamin, LydiaSaskia and Jeff Lo! :)
(sorry for bad english again)
A negative version of my drawing, the girl with the long hair. I also added the text from sinnamin's tiny story.
still haven't decided on the final look yet! :O
so sorry for such bad quality )):
She's not so wicked! She just loves to ride her broom and have fun! That's what I thought of immediately when I saw sinnamin's picture! :)
She gracefully slid down the moonlight from the sky,
