Also there is a green glass apparatus where the page dots sit, so they look like they are contained within. It will hold 7 dots well, 8 dots look okay, and if you've got 9 pages well, there's an app called Categories you should check out.
I leave the bottom right icon space empty so the sun / moon dial is not covered.
Thanks everyone for the great feedback on Clockwork, it's been downloaded 8,000 times in three days.
As always if you're feeling the love please drop a buck or two my way via PayPal and I can keep cranking out the themes. Request and suggestions welcome.
Huge thanks again to www.modmyi.com for the hosting!

Clockwork is my new custom animated lockscreen for the iPhone available through Cydia hopefully soon thanks to www.modmyi.com for hosting my themes.
This one features a beating heart powering some gears and a piston. I've also include three custom sliders for your pleasure as well.
I'm hoping to make a whole theme with this including either animated wallpaper or at least a very cool set of changing wallpapers, and possibly icons as well. This will depend on whether the new PayPal donation system affords me the time to work on it.
So if you dig it and you want more, drop me a buck or two to firstname.lastname@example.org via PayPal or use the "Donate" button on the right there and I'll get going! I'll even take suggestions.
And if you want your own unique custom theme, e-mail me and maybe we can work something out!

I just made my very first custom animated lockscreen for my iPhone based on the great little green guy that used to grace the covers of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
With the iPhone it's as if Douglas Adams himself worked hand in hand with Apple, his favorite tech brand, and designed the closest thing to the actual Guide.
I've used some variation of this image below as the wallpaper for all of my cell phones. I did not create the image, major props to whomever did. What I did do, is animate the arms and tongue so they wave about. Also there is a highlight that passes across the words Don't Panic. Words to live by my friends.
The animated lockscreen is available only for jailbroken iPhones via Cydia using Winterboard. If your phone is already jailbroken then you'll know what all that means. In the first hour or so it's already been downloaded almost 600 times! Now if only he were around to see it...

Here is my current painting. It started out as something completely different and wound up transforming into this. The resemblance to fire is obvious but not really intentional. I woke up this morning thinking of the painting as I had left it last week, and the warm colors came to mind.
I nearly totally destroyed the original painting, which will be seen when the video is finished. It's like I lit the original on fire and it froze that way.
This was a pretty tough one to get through and sitting back now to look at it I'm very satisfied.

Also dig the great song "Sad Robot" by Pornophonique who were cool enough to give me permission to use their song. They've got the whole album available for free download on their site www.pornophonique.de or search for it on jamendo. It would be very cool to drop them a donation of a couple of bucks just to say thanks if you dig the album enough to download it. See more at www.bordenca.com or www.youtube.com/chrisbordenca.

. More on that later. Anyhow I'm about to mail it back to him along with an old webcam of mine when I noticed an odd resemblance between the two. One designed hundreds if not thousands of years ago, and the other within the last eight years.
Granted they both serve different purposes entirely, but I find it interesting to note that the older of the two has been in use since its inception and the newer is already nearly obsolete.

Here is a quote from his statement:
100 Faces is a growing collection of portraits and statements by Americans with war experience in Iraq or Afghanistan (OIF, OEF). Not all the people pictured are military personnel, other people who have gone from America with a different mission or a different role than the military are also pictured.
The 100 Faces project has grown in many ways over the past couple years. As more portraits have been painted , more personal histories described, more exhibitions and events have been held the nature of this project has expanded. What began as a vision by one artist has branched out to become a project about history.
You can see the portraits at the website by following this link.
