    Ryan: LOVE the interactive oil spill graphic! Awesome work!!….the changing shape of the drifting oil is just mesmerizing. I know you’re very busy, but can you tell me how it was built. Is it Illustrator GIFs placed one after another in Flash, or how did you build it? Thanks, I’m an old newspaper artist sticking my toe into social media graphics.
