When assigned to create a public avatar of myself I initially had no idea where to start. No, I’m not an artist and do not have photoshop on my computer to make a coded digitized avatar. But then, it hit me. The twenty first century is all about connecting through social media, which has become easier and more amusing with everybody’s use of the ever expanding library of emoticons. I scroll through the assortment of emojis on my phone almost every day to add a quick visual aid to my written text messages. Personalized bitmojis add uniqueness since you can make the characterized version of you do almost anything- the options are endless.

So, I decided to create a bitmoji of myself doing the work for this class. The background is a collage of comics between students and teachers in a school setting. Even though this is only serving as a comics backdrop, it adds a quirky touch knowing they are all related to classwork. The graphic novels we will be exploring in this class have visual illustrations to assist words while emojis are a modern way of using images to communicate and relay messages.
