Explore a cartoon world without social distancing.
It’s April Fools day, and with the world as it is right now I figured folks in our community could use a little distraction – even if only for 10 minutes.
So, I’ve spent the last six weeks working with the talented illustrator Gus Morais to produce a massive picture that’s packed with fun details for you to discover. Plus, there are 30 well-known folks from the Swift community scattered through the picture – can you find them all?
The original picture itself is huge, weighing in at 5374x3508, but once you factor in a key helping you identify everyone you should be looking for, the finished result is an eye-watering 12850x5700 pixels in size.
So, you should open one of the pictures below in a new window, then zoom to see all the details – along with the 30 people there’s lots more to discover! Some people are harder to discover than others, and honestly I think you’ll struggle to find all 30. Prove me wrong, if you dare!
Regardless, I hope this picture provides you with a little fun today. Thanks for being a part of our incredible community ❤️
Remember: these folks can stand close together because they are cartoons, but you’re not – stay safe, and practice social distancing!
I’ve provided two versions of the picture: the original, and the original plus a key. If you think you really know the Swift community then try the first one, but if you need a little help check out the second…
Make sure and click the pictures to see the full-sized version!
