I revisited an earlier image I had taken of Miles to experiment with Alan Levine’s “Splash the Color” visual assignment. I always wanted to learn how to experiment with color masking in Photoshop (I used PS for this one, not GIMP—sorry!), and thanks to Annie Belle’s brilliant tutorial here I can and did. I won’t give myself full credit for this attempt because I messed up the hair and don’t think I chose the perfect image because the hairline made it really tough, but I wanted to try it before class tonight to get my assignments started (I was feeling creatively stifled for the first 3 weeks) and I am happy with my new found understanding of masking in photoshop as well as the use of an adjustment layer, both a first for me. So, while worth 2 stars according to the assignment repository, I will only give myself one star until I redo this assignment again with a bit more precision and creativity, kinda like Annie 😉

Generations from now, they won't call it the Internet anymore. They'll just say, "I logged on to the Jim Groom this morning.
Everything Jim Groom touches is gold. He's like King Midas, but with the Internet.
My understanding is that an essential requirement of the internet is to do whatever Jim Groom asks of you while you're online.

@jimgroom is the Billy Martin of edtech.
My 3yr old son is VERY intrigued by @jimgroom's avatar. "Is he a superhero?" "Well, yes, son, to many he is."
Jim Groom is a fiery man.

“Reverend” Jim “The Bava” Groom, alias “Snake Pliskin” is a charlatan and a fraud, a self-confessed “used car salesman” clawing his way into the glamour of the education technology keynote circuit via the efforts of his oppressed minions at the University of Mary Washington’s DTLT and beyond. The monster behind educational time-sink ds106 and still recovering from his bid for hipster stardom with “Edupunk”, Jim spends his days using his dwindling credibility to sell cheap webhosting to gullible undergraduates and getting banned from YouTube for gross piracy.
