ds106 Assignment: Your very own spubble

Learn to love yourself, grab a picture of yourself in which your body language, actions, gestures, etc. suggest one thing and then play off that using a speech bubble. Ideally the result would make people laugh—but I must acknowledge there are other possible emotional responses that may be just as acceptable. Think of it as lolcat, save it’s a human (namely you) and there is nothing compelling anyone to abuse the letter z in the speech bubble text. Picnik.com or Aviary.com would make this assignment dead simple.

    This totally cracked me up even before I read the assignment. I love the idea of poking fun at one’s self of course … now, which one of my many catch phrase sayings and sentiments shall I choose … maybe I’ll take a poll.

  2. This struck me as double funny because I draw the line at animated gifs–not enough bang for my learning buck–so it’s funny to think someone would actually obsess over them (whether you do or not is irrelevant to the laugh).

    I love this prompt! And as always, thanks to you and anyone else who leaves tips on what tools to use in creation.
