My heart is in medicine

For my last assignment bank post of the week to round out my 10 total stars, I selected a 2 star assignment called iconic you. This assignment tells you to make a simple image that somehow represents you. For this image I knew I wanted to do something medical …

If I Had to Describe Myself It’d Be…**

For my final design assignment for the week I decided to do the two star assignment that has you create an icon to describe yourself. As the picture they had Mickey Mouse’s ears, which made me a little sad because I wanted to do Minnie with a tiara (I just …

“Who is the star-bearer, and what will he loose that was bound?”

Although I didn’t quite complete the Iconic You assignment in the more minimalist spirit it was perhaps supposed to reflect, I am still SO. DARN. PROUD. of the work I did here. This might actually be my favorite project from the whole semester. I’m SO HAPPY with the balance here, the way I was able… more

My Iconic Image

Of course, you know me by now… My iconic image would be a penguin. I created this in Paint. I drew out a penguin and colored in Paint the rest of it. This penguin would be used on any site of mine to represent me, as I love penguins for…

My goal with participating in ds106 (in whatever way that played out) was to learn something. I’ve only scratched the surface but I’ve learned quite a bit about GIMP and Photoshop today. In addition, without putting in much effort (as I probably should have done) I am looking at design…

Iconic MC

To quote another DS106 pioneer, I spent entirely too much time on this assignment. In fact, I created several different potential icons for myself, but I was never fully satisfied with any outcome. I can’t even say that I am fully pleased with this outcome, but at some point you…

Iconic Me

The assignment was to create an image of something that represents me. I am definitely a book worm, so I chose glasses as my icon. I used an icon from NounProject and Microsoft Word. I pasted the image into a Word document and used the text overlap option. I typed…

I finished my first assignment, but I still do not know my work is correct or not. I chose the assignment as first because this is a appropriate assignment to learn how to edit the pictures. The assignment says: Create an iconic image/design for your own site that…

ICONIC

The quality looks rough but it adds to the effect.
