I made a short animation for the blog a couple of days ago. I'm not sure if it's in the right direction or not, but maybe some new ideas can come from it. Unfortunately I couldn't see how to attach .swf files to the blog, so I attached it to an external link for now. (to start the animation click on the link below and then click on the text that says 'I am marrying')
If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to comment.
