My photo of Yelle, Japanimated!!!

Yelle - Dyptique, originally uploaded by DAKOTAFINE.

So I was backstage at SXSW at the Perez Hilton Party... and I see French pop-star, Yelle across the room. I waved to her meekly thinking to myself how excited I was to see her again, after all during her last visit to DC, we had really hit it off during our photoshoot and my photos ended up on her site.

Anyways, from across the room, she exclaims, "Da-kooooo-ta!" in her unbelievably cute French accent of course. Turns out she remembered me... and even recognized me! I was like, "you remember me?" And her response, "of course!" Highlight of my year probably.

Well, over the course of our conversation she asks me whether I had seen the Japanimated version of the photo I took of her and her bandmates for DC fashion designer DURKL. Turns out someone from abroad has animated my photo!

It wasn't until a few months later that someone forwarded me the link to the website, but here it is ( the internet, as my mother said, is unbelievable.
