Cancer sucks, so get a tat

remix 2

For this remix, I immediately decided to do breast cancer. Not only is the ribbon instantly recognizable, but it’s a cancer that runs in my family. So, what to do with the ribbon?

At first, I debated replacing the ‘O’ in ‘NO’ with the ribbon, but decided in the end that it wasn’t central enough. That’s when I realized that the pupil was also pretty round-shaped, and there you go- the ribbon replaced the pupil. Honestly, I think that went really well; the ribbon is pretty much perfectly sized for where it’s at. Huh. Would you look at that.

The next step was dying everything pink, because the ribbon looked super out of place among all that black. I went through a few shades before I found one that a) was dark enough it would show up (hypothetically) on my skin (I’m a pasty white girl) and b) was light enough that you could still see the dark pink ribbon well on top of it. I mean, I don’t have to get the tattoo, so it turned out well. If I had to get this thing actually permanently on me, I’d scream. Or go blind.

All editing was done in Paint, per my usual.

Worst Powerpoint Ever (Blacksmith Camp Remix)

Remix 1

#blessed because this remix came up on the one project where there was actually info I could put in a powerpoint. Not a ton of info, but enough for three slides.

Also, this actually hurt to make.

(If you couldn’t tell, this is the title slide.)

When making this, I thought– now, what are all the mistakes someone who has no clue what they’re doing ¬†could make?

  1. Crowded title slide
  2. Black font on dark background
  3. Pictures with small words within them
  4. Honestly, just clipart.
  5. Pictures that only vaguely relate to the topic
  6. Comic. Sans. Maybe this should be #1.
  7. Not deleting unused text boxes
  8. Not centering the photo
  9. Not fitting the photo to the slide
  10. Questionable organizational ability
  11. Unfinished
  12. Overexcessive punctuation
  13. Text boxes not aligned
  14. Well-meaning-but-easily-misinterpreted tagline

I’m kinda proud at how bad this is, and more than slightly horrified at how easily this monstrosity was created.

I used Microsoft PowerPoint for this, then screenshotted and cropped to turn the slides into embeddable pictures.
