I had a grand plan to create a gif that looked very drawn on, to convey the part of ds106 that I loved the most. I was going to then apologize for how this gif actually turned out, but then decided that I wouldn’t. It’s rough around the edges and it reminds me of some of my first projects that I did for ds106.
While I do love everything about this course, the thing that keeps bringing me back really is the creative expression. The actual art-making. It’s been two years since I was enrolled in ds106 (yikes) but in my quiet moments, I still come back to the assignments page to let out some artistic steam.
To any prospective students of the course possibly reading this post, this is not a class that is easily taken and then forgotten. ds106 sticks with you for many reasons, and teaches you a lot. It taught me to make art, damnitt.
