Using an online wanted poster generator such as this one, generate a wanted poster of a favorite character or actual person.  Start with a close-up photo of their face with a minimum of distracting background. Crop and change it in your image editor to black and white to get a small enough file size for the generator's requirements.

Be amusing with your wanted criteria, because you're going to have to blog in greater detail about this person's crimes. Oh yes, we're not just slapping up wanted posters all over town, we've got reasons, grudges, and axes to grind. Put your wanted poster into your blog along with the retinue of crimes that justify the bounty! Link that blog post to this assignment and tell your tale!
