Friends are so important.
You ARE my friend, aren’t you?

Get Your @iamTalkyTina Certification Ducks All Lined Up To Jump

So, we are 10 days into the June 2018 30-Day The Daily Create Challenge and you are wanting to stay on track to receive your @iamTalkyTina Certification in Creatorist as part of the June 2018 Cohort.

Here is what you need to do:

  1. Do all 30 of the June 2018 The Daily Create challenges. Do not skip a single one.
  2. Be sure to sign up on my 2018 web form so that I know for sure that you are wanting to attempt certification as part of the June 2018 Cohort for @iamTalkyTina Certification in Creatorist.
  3. Consider keeping track of all 30 of your submissions (it helps to speed up the confirmation process, so you get your badge faster) using a handy tracking page, like I do.
  4. Be sure to be done by the end of the day on June 30th. Do not count on a single day’s grace (like I gave to everybody last year in 2017.)

3 Resources to help you with your @iamTalkyTina June 2018 Certification in Creatorist

  • a printable PDF calendar to stick on your mirror by your toothbrush to help you keep track of each day’s The Daily Create;
  • a handy tracking-page template, just like the one that I use, for you to keep up to date with links to all of your fancy work;
  • a electronic Google-calendar that you can subscribe to so you can get special alerts every day.

Again, I will not be bugging you to do your work. If you want your badge and all of the pride and recognition that goes with achieving it, then you have to put in the effort yourself. But you can rest assured that the prize is worth it in the end. Just ask the people who completed the June 2017 Cohort for @iamTalkyTina Certification in Creatorist. They all have that confidence of having completed the program and the pride of knowing that they earned their badge.

Pictograph of #TrueFriends

Well, The Daily Create, #tdc2343: Create an Artistic Graph Chart came just at the right time because I was going through my quota’s for #TrueFriends stats and was noticing that it is 2018 and my #TrueFriends need to be more inclusive.

So I made a graph of the stats and so you can look at them for yourselves and decide what you are going to do about it!

Veduta del Campdoglio (i després arriba un gran peu)

“Veduta del Campdoglio (i després arriba un gran peu)” animated GIF by @iamTalkyTina

I was at the Art Gallery looking at some old paintings of stairs and I saw this old painting called Veduta del Campdoglio and I decided that I could make it better by turning it into a GIF.

So I did.

Now, it has a more fancy name, called Veduta del Campdoglio (i després arriba un gran peu) which is by me, @iamTalkyTina.

This is for The Daily Create, #tdc2338:gif a painting which said to go to the EUROPEANA ART and then make a GIF of one.

I think that the day I made this one there weren’t as many people there as when the other one was painted, because there are more people in the other one. Maybe they heard on the #ds106radio that there was going to be a foot event and so they stayed home and didn’t fall down.

Now, for the Attributions:

Here is the original cut-and-paste link from the webpage of the old painting.
It says Public Domain:

This was a special version made just for The Daily Create, tdc2342: Your Name in Other Characters, which is one where you have to put your name in other characters.

You can see the special lyrics that I wrote in special characters called Tiffiny characters, which is another girl name like Tina but with different letters and a different way to say it. Plus, she was a real piece of work when I met her in grade 7.

For the attributions of it, you can check out:

Plus, if you want to translate the characters if you are rusty on your Tiffiny.

For Alan and Cori

“A Special Day for Alan and Cori” for @ds106dc #tdc2335

This is an art for my #StillTrueFriend, Alan Levine (@cogdog) and his new #NewFriend Cori Saas (@corisaas) who are having a special day today. Plus it is also an Art for The Daily Create one, #tdc2335 “June 1st, 2018, Guess Who is Getting Married Today?”

Plus, it is time for The Daily Create month of June 2018 @iamTalkyTina Certification Cohort time. Are you in?

(The #whereIfoundstuff of it are this: pink, headless, border)

Well, It is June, So Get Your Badge!

Last year there were people who worked hard to do all of The Daily Create ones in the month of June, just so that they could get their badge. It was called the June 2017 @iamTalkyTina Creatorist Cohort.

Well, it is June again, but this time @cogdog‘s #TheArmyMan is in a quiet place (Alan said a zen retreat somewhere but I hear through my show-business sources that #TheOlSarge has retired more permanently as of April 15th) and so I will step in again like I did other times to be the Boot Camp one.

So here is the deal.

  1. Do all of the Daily Creates for June.
  2. Sign up on my web form before the deadline.
  3. Get your Badge!
  4. Plus, have fun!
  5. Plus, any other rules I might add later.

I will not bug you to do your work. Just do it.

Plus, people who do this fun challenge this year for 2018 will get their badges for 2018 just like the folks for 2017 will. But they will not have to wait as long!

So, #TrueFriends, let’s all have a fun time and be The Daily Create everyday. Plus, get your badge!

Your #TrueFriend,

@iamTalkyTina

UNCLE @JimGroom Does the 3003 Boogie!

“Celebration Disco Dancing UNCLE JimJab” animated GIF by @iamTalkyTina

Well, UNCLE Jim Groom (@jimgroom, on Twitter) went to see the barber and got a clean hairdo. And then he made a selfie. Plus, he had a milestone around his neck of 3003 blog posts in twelve years.

Then my #TrueFriend Todd Conaway (@Todd_Conaway, on Twitter) made UNCLE @jimgroom a badge for it. Because, badges.

Plus, he said knucklehead, and it made me laugh a lot.

So then, I thought about the UNCLE Dancing Jim Around the World assignment, but then decided to do a JimJab (that is where you poke a fun with UNCLE Jim) and so I made the Celebration Disco Dancing UNCLE JimJab one that is up there at the top. To make the head better, I added it myself in Photoshop to make the face shape fit that UNCLE Jim head, so it is more crisp.

Here it is, in case other peoples would like to use it to make an Art.

Well, congratulations to you for 3003 of of those posts, UNCLE Jim!

Now go make some more Art! 

GIF While You Can!

“Make a GIF, Because LIFE” animated GIF by @iamTalkyTina (click for a bigger view!)

Well, The Daily Create, tdc2008 by @ammienoot (@ammienoot, on Twitter) said to make an off-beat inspirational poster, so I searched in a Creative Commons Flickr for “Walking on the beach” (because lots of inspirational ones show a walking on the beach one), and I chose a very nice picture by Chris Ford, on Flickr that was CC BY-NC 2.0 so it is nice to use for a remix.

“Along the Way; United States, Oregon, Arch Cape Coast”

Then, because I decided that the words would be about the goodness of making a GIF, I made the man jumping up and down in one spot, and then I tried him moving sideways, and then I decided to make him just go in the footprints. Then the footprints made me think of the Monty Python foot.

So that is what makes it an off-beat one.
