Steph and I headed down to the Grampians on the weekend with my supervisor Alan, his wife Caroline, and a work colleague Alice. We hiked up Mt. Difficult on Saturday, walking for 5 hours in total, but as you can see from the photos it was worth it. The weather was excellent and the views breathtaking, all in all we had a great time and look forward to going back there again sometime.
I stumbled across the simpsonizeme.com website [http://simpsonizeme.com/] which takes a photo and converts it to a Simpsons style caricature. You can then manually change the features if the suggestion is not quite right. A few changes later and I ended up with this -- close, but maybe a bit too old/yellow. :)
There is also a different manual simpson avatar creator at [http://www.simpsonsmovie.com/] which is also quite fun to play with.
It's fun to think of the huge parameter space governed by these systems, and maybe an aesthetic/genetic selection mechanism would be better suited to searching through the space or automating the creation of new characters.
