This week, we focused on photography and we were tasked with completing 10 stars worth of visual assignments. One of the assignments I chose to do was “Your Very Own Spubble.” The complete assignment was:
Learn to love yourself, grab a picture of yourself in which your body language, actions, gestures, etc. suggest one thing and then play off that using a speech bubble. Ideally the result would make people laugh—but I must acknowledge there are other possible emotional responses that may be just as acceptable. Think of it as lolcat, save it’s a human (namely you) and there is nothing compelling anyone to abuse the letter z in the speech bubble text. Picnik.com or Aviary.com would make this assignment dead simple.
For my spubble, I chose a photo of myself at a dig site during one my archaeology internships in Gloucester, Va. I added the text in my speech bubble says “I can’t wait until I get to do this for a living!” I’ve wanted to be an archaeologist since I was 7 and I’m 22 now and I still have that same dream.
The process for this one was also pretty simple. I just uploaded the photo to Snapchat and found a speech bubble sticker, then typed my phrase and sized it to fit within the sticker and voila! My very own Spubble.
