Vector Magic

Vector graphics are made with lines, circles, and curves, rather than discrete pixels. They can be beautiful, and are more impressionistic than realistic.

Stanford University has made available this nifty online vector graphic machine. Just browse for an image on your PC, then upload it and follow the instructions. The results can be really neat.

Here's some examples of random vectorized pictures.

Here's me, in my favorite band shirt: Vectorized

Me again, with Dixie: Vectorized

A kid kissing a pig: Vectorized

The oddest picture ever, a kid heading to the prom, showing off his miniature sewing machine, in front of a UPS truck accident: Vectorized

Pretty neat, huh?
