Today Lauren and I used ComicLife to create our in-class visual on Medero's "Paper Prototyping" from alistapart.com and it was so much fun!

The program has a really cool technique for allowing you to create funky, comic-type lettering and you can make it slant and curve anyway you want. Neither of us had really ever tried the program out so it was fun to just poke around for a bit doing this and that. In the end we made a comic about a "design meeting" and used stick figures and some of the images from the articles. Hopefully it goes over well ;)

Oh, and p.s. I'm nervous about Module 3, hopefully I don't do a horrific job! (I really need to look into the readings and find some quotes I can take from them...)
