a picture is worth a thousand words

Anonymous names

Are they villains?, are they heroes?… I don’t know, this time you have to think for yourself. But I love the David Lloyd’s mask for “The Doll” (read about V for Vendetta), and how it mix with the idea of an anonymous group of people.

In order to translate this concept I took the top 1000 most commonly used baby boy and girl names in USA throughout 2010 from this website and spread them over an image of The Doll. The bigger are the most commonly used.

You can also take a look at the same illustration without legend or download wallpapers, 640×480 800×600 1024×768 1152×864 1280×800 1280×1024 1366×768 1440×900 1600×1200 1680×1050 1856×1392 1920×1080 1920×1440 2048×1536.

Another one.

Also with legend, and wallpapers, 640×480 800×600 1024×768 1152×864 1280×800 1280×1024 1366×768 1440×900 1600×1200 1680×1050 1856×1392 1920×1080 1920×1440 2048×1536.

One more.

Last one with legend.

      Do like. However imo the second one (half faded) needs higher word density, and would also like to see some font smoothing. Otherwise they look a bit weak at higher resolutions.

        Yeah hughc, you’re right… I did the wallpaper sizes using my own application and it drops jagged borders. It’s my fault because my original illustrations are vector base pdf’s, so I have infinite smooth avaiable. I just updated my tool so I will fix these wallpaper versions in the future.

        Thanks for comment!

      Eugene Robinson is ignorant and a bit of a buffoon. That he says and writes the things he does should surprise no one. As a guest panelist on Meet the Press, he makes a lousy show utterly unwatchable. We should not be giving him the attention he so desperately craves.
