Post Lots of Bill: A Week of Shakespeare Creates

I’m not much of a Shakespeare buff (yet! There’ still time) but I do think he is pretty cool. It’s nice to have the chance to use the word buff, too, even if it’s in the negative. My favorite play from Bill is MacBeth. That story always cheers me up.

All this week Daily Creates have been to post imagery to do with various lines from Shakespeare. When I assemble all five of my posts in one spot here I predict we will see that the whole is weaker than the sum of its parts. Let’s find out! (insert Law and Order WAB WAB sound)

Day One: 

I used @mhawksey’s wibbly wobbly timey wimey thing from OER16 to make it seem like Yorick was at the conference. He wasn’t for reals though!yOERick.png Day 2:

I took this picture of this pretty lady for Day 2. She totally doth.

Day 3:

Find a photograph that captures the words of Shakespeare. Even better if you can go beyond the literal.

I subverted some of Bill’s words from Macbeth to say thanks to Open Educators like the DS106 crew.


Day 4:

Dream? Bottom? Sandy says Bottom is a donkey. Make something to illustrate Shakespeare’s words.

I ran through about 50 different vague ideas here but they all involved butts and bums…I thought I needed more coffee to get through this. And then it hit me! Also, the grand return of my low-intermediate MS Paint Skills!

And Day 5:

 As previously mentioned. I’m not much of a Bill buff, so I had to think about this one and what it meant. I didn’t think too deeply though because this ended up involving a chat box and Kijiji, of course.


There you have it, I hope you enjoyed an inconsistent and innocuous week of Shakespeare through me!
