My parents are the ultimate science/art yin and yang--Mom's a crazy smart biomed researcher, while Dad could probably recite the entire Pantone catalogue. You'd think, then, that their offspring would have been these well-rounded überkind, Renaissance Children destined for world domination. Instead, they got one of each of them--my sister: arty, musically inclined, naturally perfect pitch, handy with a paintbrush--and me: nerdy, science-leaning, was on the math team. I can't carry a tune, nor could I re-create the simplest of drawings. But why am I telling you all of this?
It's because I need your help.
While I'm totally loving my new digs here at LabSpaces, I'm looking around my blog page and, well, the walls are a little bare, no? When I was setting things up I noticed that I could upload a banner, and I'd be lying if I told you I immediately knew what that meant. But now that I do know what a banner is, I totally want one! I feel like it could really tie the room together.
And here's where you come in! If you design a banner for me, I will love you forever. Just follow these simple rules:
1. NO COMIC SANS
2. Must say "Fumbling towards tenure track" somewhere.
3. Must look good next to my Dumbo bum avatar.
4. Must be 620px x 100 px
5. Must be emailed to dr.becca.phd [at] gmail by noon (EST) Friday, July 30.
Presuming I get more than one entry, I will pick a winner! The winning banner will become my actual banner, and "Banner designed by [your name or pseudonym here]" will be displayed prominently on my main blog page. Fame
and fortune will be yours!
Thank you thank you thank you in advance, talented arty readers!
