200th post: who's really bored and wants a project?

Jul 26 2010 Published by under Uncategorized

Hello readers! This is my 200th post. I was going to try to save it for something special, but I got antsy and decided to use it to start a call for art project participants. I want to get some creativity going here, and am not having much luck with my own head, so I thought I'd try crowd-sourcing instead! Maybe nobody will bite, in which case I'll feel lame for a while and then suck it up and do the project myself. But whatever, here goes:

I want to find an entertaining infographic/illustration for Chemical BiLOLogy to use up in that "user profile pic" thingymabob. A Google Image search for it was BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING!!!!!! All generic molecules, people in lab coats, dudes, protein structures, BLAH!! I'm trying, but just not getting inspired enough on my own.


BOHHH-RING!!

Let's put our Photoshop and MSPaint skills together and come up with something better. You can make a collage, draw your own cartoon, whatever. Make sure anything you use is in the public domain however, citing sources. Send images to me at chemicalbilology@gmail.com and I will post them. I will most likely make a dictator-like determination of my favorite(s) and may conglomerate multiple offerings to make my user pic. Don't worry about fitting a certain size, make it bigger rather than smaller and I can shrink where necessary. I will assume that if you submit an image to me, you're giving me permission to use it!

Alrighty, let's see where this goes... if it is a FAIL (because I'm not cool enough to have readers who give a crap and have time...) then oh well.
