Fooling around with The GIMP

It's been quite some time since I fiddled with The GIMP. I used to do all kinds of stuff using it, but for some reason I stopped doing that. For the last years I've been essentially using it for preparing images for posters, presentations and the like.

I realize this is not much, but at least I managed to remember a few basic stuff about image manipulation. The result is kinda cool, but I'm not sure yet if I'll end up using it somewhere or not.

Explaining the "starbucksy" mood: today I received my MASP City Mug. For those of you wondering, MASP stands for "Museu de Arte de São Paulo", a museum located here in São Paulo.
