It felt time to play a Four Icon Challenge assignment in ds106. it’s always hard to know if you make these too challenging or too easy, I am thinking this one is the latter.

My approach, as I usually cannot recall movies all that well, is to watch some YouTube clips to remind me of key scenes. I scribble down icon ideas in a text file, and run some image searches for icons/comics, even real photos with clean backgrounds that might work.

Not being up to being as meticulous as Michael B Smith, after sizing the images to a similar vertical scale in PhotoShop, applied the Smudge Stick effect to each one for a more graphic design:

I am still not quite as sneaky clever as Martha was in the challenge.

What say ye?
