Attached is my avatar. This picture is of Ben Franklin from the $100 bill listening to headphones with a background. To be totally honest, I’m not 100% sure why I chose this picture. I had no real ideas for a self portrait and didn’t want to draw a crappy picture of myself so I got creative. I chose Ben Franklin for no real reason, I guess I like the idea of modifying an icon and I like history. I feel that this properly represents my eclectic style; I will work with whatever whenever. It was important to me that he was listening to music because music plays a huge role in my life and is something I’m very passionate about. The two biggest challenges I faced when making this avatar were thinking of an idea and executing it. I’m not the greatest drawer so I had to think of something which represented me. This poorly edited picture is the what I ended up with. The other challenge was producing the image. I’ve never worked with photo editing software before and I think it shows. It took me well over an hour and a half to figure out how the program I used (Pxlr) worked and to assemble and edit the entire thing. The result is what you see here, a brief statement of me.
