By Joe Freedman, Sarabande Press: "'Walking Man' started with a digital photo of the traffic sign; a transparent GIF was made in Photoshop and imported into Illustrator CS; SymmetryWorks made the pattern; QuicKeys was scripted to save out a picture and then rotate the imported image by 2 degrees; Photoshop added the backgrounds; the pictures (250 of them) were pulled into QuickTime using the Open Image Sequence command.

The hardest part of the process was picking which SymmetryWorks patterns to use. There were so many great options. Many thanks to Artlandia!"
