Librarian X With great power comes great bibliography.

Yesterday Rachel and I gave our presentation on instructional podcasting at the GALILEO/GOLD conference.  I felt like it went very well, and we got lots of very nice feedback afterward.  We experimentally tried recording it, and if the audio came out okay I'll post it here soon.  (Note the lack of date commitment.  I have a busy few more days ahead of me as I finish up school.)

But that's not the point of today's post.  I want to show off the graduation present I got after the conference.

  1. NICE! I’m considering a tattoo when I graduate, too. Though I think mine might be more text-based. That’s just kinda how I roll.

  2. Very nice! Did you design it yourself?

  3. I did, Bridget, except for the banner at the bottom which I confess is from the cover of the Illustrated Librarian tattoo book. The skull was a piece of clip art I found somewhere, the glasses frames and books were based on actual photos. I just Photoshopped them all together, no terribly great design skill involved.

  4. I love it! For some reason, the skull reminds me of DEATH in the Terry Pratchett books, in case you ever decide to put titles on the book spines. :)

  5. Oh wow, Megan — the red book does have room for a title, doesn’t it? Must think on that.

    DEATH APPROVES OF YOUR IDEA.

  6. The tattoo is wild and hope it was not too painful. Passion for one’s profession is unbelievable. I think this would make a great poster for teens. They would love the coolness of it.

  7. Lynn — those people who say that tattoos aren’t painful? Those people are liars.

  8. That, sir, rocks my face off. Well done.

  9. JG –Can I use that as a book cover blurb someday?

  10. This is very nice to see the tattoos as a librarian picture.

  11. I love it! For some reason, the skull reminds me of DEATH in the Terry Pratchett books, in case you ever decide to put titles on the book spines.
