I saw this tweet from ds106 master Bill Genereux:
Ok, today’s #dailycreate is a lot of fun. If you’re in #ds106 you might want to do this one. http://t.co/mHaU1eYylb

and this image on the linked page caught my eye:
so naturally I thought of the Slender Man, since it’s only a few letter off. I thought about trying to match the typeface, but that would have taken too much time so I picked something else that was sort of close. I felt like it needed some tentacles, and a Google search led me to Roys-Art page. Roy was nice enough to label his stuff “Free to use,” so everyone should give him a round of applause. and here’s my Daily Create:
I have a background in Photoshop, so I was able to do this quickly. It doesn’t really make any sense, but it doesn’t have to. The Daily Create is all about making art. With a small “a.”
I thought it was funny. I think it is possible to spend too much time on these. Sometimes I ponder a potential Daily Create all day long, and can’t think of anything really good, so I do nothing. This semester, I think I’ll do something, rather than nothing, even if it isn’t my best work ever.
