Besides me, does anyone else see a horse standing on its hind legs in the Piano World Forum Logo??????????????

You forgot the tiny rider with his two lances out behind him - or is that a scarf?

It takes a while to see, but the white background is actually the continents. \:\)

I see it too.

I'm sure the artist who spent hours and hours developing the logo for me would be pleased to hear you think it looks like a horse :-)

Ok, I see it too.
But the "horse" is the oceans.
I can post a 2400x2400 pixel version that would be easier to see, but it would be about 20MB

Well, I didn't see the horse until Angelo pointed it out, but now I don't see anything BUT a horse! (thanks a ton, there, angelo! \:D )

...I wonder if you made the continents black and the water white if that would make the horse go away...

Frank,

Its a GREAT design, quite clever with the keys, etc... its no one's fault the earth looks like a horse!!! (Kind of like how the moon has a face!)

I suspect it would just turn it into a white horse ...

It does have rather deformed hindquarters, though.

Ok, does it still look like a horse?

Re: OT: Piano World Logo - 06/25/08 09:52 PM

Now it looks like a lion standing up!

My avatar????

I think the large version looks like the something from Lovecraft's Cthulhu stories.



Let's go back to the horse.

I think I see some busty old witch or something in that large version.

This thread sounds like a parish council meeting in an episode of "The Vicar of Dibly". \:D Much fun. (Think the stained glass window episode! Ha!)

I love the logo, Frank.

(I do see the horse now that it's been pointed out and I think it's great!)

Sort of looks like the world to me. Hmmmm.

I see a horse and a lion dancing together, round and round they go. \:D

Love your avatar Frank.

Oh yes, a horse in the logo! I love horses. And pianos. Good combination!! Maybe there is also a secret subforum on horse-related discussions? ;\)

Re: OT: Piano World Logo - 06/26/08 10:44 AM

I have ALWAYS seen a horse in the PW logo- even in the big one! Sorry, Frank! LOL I mean, I figured out right quickly what it REALLY was, but I still see a horsie!

Re: OT: Piano World Logo - 06/26/08 10:54 AM

I had my older son, who designs such things, look at it last night and he made some comments about balance of the composition. In addition to that, he sees a horse with a rider falling with his arms akimbo to break the fall. I said it was a stiff scarf or crossed lances, he said they were arms - we argued the point. ;\)

I see a medieval dragon...

Monica,
Want to analyze our personalities based on what we see?!

Re: OT: Piano World Logo - 06/26/08 03:47 PM

\:D \:D

Well, it shows that MY personality is one of total and utter suggestibility, because now the darned thing looks like a dragon to me. \:D

a smoking dragon.. one who has just let out a flame

Re: OT: Piano World Logo - 06/27/08 07:05 PM

It looks like a Halloween witch waving one of those rhythmic gymnastics ribbons or something in one hand. (I saw that before I read Anthony's post, so I believe he is a person of great mental ability. \:D )

Exactly!! I've always thought that! Except his wings look a little funky

Re: OT: Piano World Logo - 06/28/08 11:12 AM

I'm starting to suspect the logo was actually designed by Monica and her colleagues in the psych department and we're all guinea pigs in a piano-oriented Rorschach test. Look for an article in Pianist Magazine that cites this study to analyze phobias and neuroses of adults who take up piano.

Yeow! I'm a rat in a maze! Let me out!!!

It's a ghost: northpole and norway/sweden = eyes and Great Britain = mouth.
Black=body.

And it's just released from it's bottle.

The big version did scare me ;\)

But will the north pole of Franks Logo still have ice this summer?

Re: OT: Piano World Logo - 06/30/08 09:42 AM

What is especially nice about this logo is the relative size of Canada. ;\)

There goes another one for the dragon ... maybe about to eat a horse \:D

Re: OT: Piano World Logo - 07/09/08 08:43 PM

C'mon guys. Frank worked so hard on that logo. Can't you tell "Pete's Dragon" laing on his back licking his "fingers" after he has feasted on the mean old Grogin family? Where is everyone's sense of fun and fantasy?

Just Kidding, Frank. I love your logo.

Bye the way, laing is Southern for Laying. After all "Elliot" is a laid-back dragon

haha ok that explains it - I hadn't looked at it closely, but I kept getting this weird "western" feeling when I glanced it ;\) LOL.

All of you probably lie on the ground on a summers night and make pictures out of the clouds. One of my favorite activities, but I only see a world with a keyboard around it.

Re: OT: Piano World Logo - 07/11/08 07:03 AM

What I see there is...

A little girl with pigtails looking left! With her tongue sticking out and a gnome standing on her nose!
