Doodles --> Clip Art

17 Comments

Many people have asked me about the images I have on my webpages and blogs. It's fun to search the web for clip art and I also enjoy making my own. I love drawing and doodling, so I try to use my own graphics when I create PowerPoints, worksheets, web pages and blogs. I created the Godzilla image on this blog header using only 4 tools:
  1. a piece of white paper
  2. a black felt tip marker
  3. a scanner
  4. a free online photo site called Pixlr
 If you would like to create your own clip art, I'm here to tell you that you don't need fancy programs to do so!

Just draw a picture (use black pen, so that it really shows up). Then scan it as an image. Upload the file to Pixlr and have fun! You can color in your image, add text, crop it down, etc.






 
 
 

WARNING: Making images may become a time-consuming hobby. Please get your schoolwork done before attempting this at home.

If you create a graphic, please e-mail or k-mail it to me. I would love to see it! I can even post it on this blog for others to admire.

Enjoy!

Really awesome. Cool thing is I have Photoshop and other programs for designing and maybe I can make something for my English class with a theme of Mrs.Sol, English Class, and WAVA.

If you guys decide to make a graphic to go with another class, or just for fun, send it to me!

Thanks for the great comments. Keep 'em coming!
