At any moment in time I may wear one of these hats: interaction designer, coder, gamer, educator, hacker, athlete, musician, chef, woodworker. I like to dabble in lots of things...from the virtual to the physical.

raphaeljs.com/australia.html This is what I'm looking for. Now I have to consider their list of supported browsers. :)

I Jim. It's a good link but the technique won't really solve my ideal situation. In my situation the shapes are touching each other. In the article, they have enough space between them where rectangular regions can still be used. I guess I can break down my irregular shape into an approximation based on many rectangles...seems tricky, but you got me thinking.

Is there a special way to move it or do I just copy and paste? I want to retain the comments and answers.

Piggybacking off of Patrick's question...what technology are you using? Need to understand how rich of an experience this is. E.g. Is it an HTML page with character choices or is it something highly interactive and animated like a Flash game?

comment Pros/Cons of PSD mockups vs. HTML mockups
One thing that I come across a lot is that sometimes there's a disconnect with what the visual designer thinks can be done in HTML. The PSD that they create may not be a true representation of what the final page may look like. I think that if there are some rules or conventions (like sticking to an agreed upon grid) which can mitigate this. Having said this, I don't think that there's a right or wrong here. One has to weigh the skills of the team and the amount of time available to create the mockup to determine which approach to take.
