Yea Hunter, that's all I'm doing (bored artist wanting to play around with some images on his coffee break)... I'm definitely not trying to create a new kind of art form, nor am I saying I'm tired of traditional wildlife photography (not at all)... just having a bit of fun.

I do find it interesting and a bit humorous that my original photo posted in my Flickr account got 119 visits and 5 favourites over 17 days and the stylized version got 4,080 visits and 260 favourites in one day yesterday.


Bit of fun: GOOD! 34x more traffic and 52x more favorites!? That's interesting. I wonder why? Well, have more fun.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say it got 34x more traffic and 52x more favorites because PEOPLE LIKE IT.  I'm sure there were plenty of purists that scoffed at Dali, Picasso, and others that pushed the envelope.  When it comes to art, the best rule is not to have too many rules.  Rules get in the way of innovation.
