I'm slow to change things. The simple color theme on this Blogger page is a classic example.
It has been a couple of years since I had done the collage of Adobe Illustrator-generated pysanky that I used as my iPhone lock screen. After hunting down images for my latest Easter basket attempt, I thought I'd also update the collage.
I had to play editor and leave out a few favorites because they just didn't go well in this arrangement. Though the individual eggs are done in Illustrator, it was not computationally feasible to try an arrangement. PhotoShop to the rescue. I added a little neutral gradient shadow effect near the base of the eggs, and I added a lighting effect coming from the top-left. The background gradient is a Blue 1 from the photographic gradient palette.
So, here are my eggs of 2013, rendered for the iPhone 4 screen of 640 by 960 px.
