I took photos and edited them with my phone (in the basic phone editor, no fancy stuff). The photos are of my immediate surroundings (packed fish, lightbulb) or the result of craft (a drawing robot toy made the lovely dotted curves, and the stars are actually insect-made holes in an old paperback). The editing took several rounds, because I was limited by the phone's preset functions. Then, based on the photos, I wrote a few poems using a combination of actual writing and predictive text (hence the funny reference to The Old Man and the Sea). Then, I added the text using the phone's photo editor, picture by picture. Finally, I used the first free GIF-making app that I could download (complete with constant annoying advertisement) to generate these - using a compressed, low-quality resolution.
