Some of the best parts of ds106 happens when people spontaneously build off of the whacky things others share. Rapid fire style.

Your assignment is to riff on someone eles's ds106 work and make it new in a GIF form. It can be revising an existing GIF, or taking a graphic and turning it into a GIF.

Riff the GIF, say it three times fast.

I don’t know if these posters technically count as ds106 assignments, but it was way too cool for me to pass up.

I’m Cutting Jack Some Slack. But not with his Hatchet !!

Spock vapourizes Rock. Repeatedly.

I had to cut Hatchet Jack some slack this past weekend.

A Valentine Controversy from 1965

Jeb’s Telescope

Not Quite Norma GIF

How could anyone resist doing Tom Woodward’s Not Quite Norma Jean assignment? The past is strange. Remake this classic Marilyn Monroe “expressions sheet” with self-portraits or with the aid of a friend. Bonus points for the involvement of a stranger. And I thought, if Tom Woodward can pose coyly like Marilyn, than surely my stuffed animal Feldspar can pull it off? And as I worked with the image I made from it it started saying to me, please make me into a GIF, yeah, a Riff a GIF type of GIF. Enjoy. For the makings, I created Photoshop file with the background a capture of the screen at Retronaut (I liked the frame on it), and in the top layer, a copy of this made with the images of her cut out, so it was a copy of the frames around the images that sits above the 9 separate image …
