Look at this fun picture I made at Photofunia. It features the covers of my book and chapbook, and a picture of me. There are lots of interesting effects you can make at that website, uploading a photo of your choice and then having it plastered to the sides of buildings, as the cover of Vogue, or as the picture on a postage stamp. People's faces can be attached to the bodies of Santa Claus, a Jedi knight, or a pirate, or can replace a president on Mount Rushmore (just in time for the 4th of July holiday). Plus many more amusing effects.
I learned about this site from Diane Lockward's monthly newsletter, which you can sign up for at her blog. Scroll down and the sign-up is on the right. Her newsletter recommends books about writing and creativity, features a monthly writing prompt, and always provides links to interesting websites she has found, such as this one. I always enjoy receiving her newsletter, a fast fun read with something new and stimulating every time.
