I think about him while I Rasterbate
Here's what happens when I'm bored and
done huffing permanent markers left to make my own fun on a Friday afternoon.
Behold, The Rasterbator.
The Rasterbator allows you to upload and enlarge an image and then spits out a spiffy printable PDF file that you can piece together for a wall-sized, ceiling-sized or even larger final image.
You can only guess where this is going, right?
First I figured out what would make a good rasterbatory material.
Why, my Fierce leatherboy sidebar mascot of course!
I decided to size the image to fill 3 pages across by 7 pages high (US letter size 8.5"x11"). I could have sized it a bit smaller because the final result uses less than 50% of the third row but I kind of wanted it *cough* actual size. Looking at the detail of the page it's hard to tell how it will come out. Luckily, I have a serious B&W hardcore printer at the office so I decided go ahead and print this baby out (click to see the result and my ugly office carpet).
A quick trip to my brother's art studio to use the nice straight-edge cutter and some careful tape work and *whee*...lifesize Keanu. Now I just have to decide where to put him.
Of course just like they warned you in Sunday School, once you start rasterbating, you can't stop.
Here's a screenshot of my second project. The highlighted lippy part is shown in the detail below.
I wanted to be sure to get some good details so I made this one 8 pages high by 8 wide. It was only after I downloaded it that I realized that this is going to produce a rasterbation over 7 feet high. Pretty much floor to ceiling. Zoiks.
I haven't actually printed this one out yet.
So if you're not doing anything this weekend and have plenty of ink (or you can burn the files to a disc and take it to Kinko's, black and white shouldn't cost too much) why not indulge in a little toner abuse?
Clicking on the detail pics above will download the PDF's I made or you can make your own.
Check out the gallery for ideas and a look at how different page counts will turn out and if you go here, there are some good tips as well.
Happy Rasterbating! I promise you won't go blind!

This is the kewlest thing EVAH.
*thinks* laser printer @ work... I work late...no one there...going in this Sunday to work anyway...
And then, ah the joys of Rasterbation for the Single Woman!
Great project for the weekend!
...good thing blindness is just a myth ;-)
hahaha that's rad! I've never heard of that before. I can imagine abusing the work printer on something created through the Rasterbator.
pretty cool place en web. Funny is either the 'gematriculator'... too bad the weather is so fine outside today ;-(
This looks like so much fun, krix!
*rushes off to do some rasterbating all by herself*
heh she said rasterbate..interesting.. I have to do these with some Rob pics too.. hmm
hugs and God bless your friend
Going blind while rasterbating LOL Sorry mind in gutter
So I sense you're taking a brief respite from practicing the bass? ;) I hope mr. bass teacher man doesn't read this.
Cool find - thanks hun. :)
holy shit!!!!!!!!!!!, this is so f'ing cool!!!

wow!cool! i'm doing a pic now...!!!!
goin to gym while image prints out!
fun! will do more!
i will be rasterizing a LOT!!!!
i would like to be in your arms.............. i kissyou
Sure, rasterbating for hours won't make us go blind, but what about staring for hours at 7 foot posters of Keanu?
I'm doing one for the ceiling!!
You must have the greatest husband in the WORLD ;)
Also, for anyone that is interested, DotaMatic is a similar program that you can download to your desktop.
RE: the ceiling - what happens when you switch places? just occurred to me that this isn't going to work out too well... my hubby really isn't into Keanu as much as I am. ;) Now if we could figure out how to flip it over with with Trinity on the reverse - that he may go for!
