The Selfie Project
This is my best so far. In truth, my image is not a selfie. It was drawn by my husband, Don Schmidt who creates comics in his spare time.
The project is this: Find lots of folks to be inspired through an image of themselves. The folks leverage their connection to themselves to explore a number of creative and technical environments. Folks share their learning explorations with others through photographs on social media and a number of hashtags. #Makersville, #SelfieProject, #Squigglemom
