Comic Me Down Under

A quick one for a new #ds106 assignment created by one of my students:

Comic Book Effect
Take a picture and experiment with the “Halftone Effect” in some photo editing software to create a comic book effect. There are lots of tutorials on Youtube and Google.

This was the original photo, one that Rowan Peter took of me when I visited him in Melbourne and we worked on some lawn art in his back yard:

I did all my edits directly in flickr using Piknic (Using “Edit Photo in Piknic” from the Actions menu). There was no half tone effect there, but I found the textured one worked pretty well. I added the bubble on some next to round it out.

Just a quick try!

An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.
