So nice to know I'm not the only paranoid one. :-) But sad to know that sometimes "just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean their not after you". :-( **Off to go check prices for tiny cam. . .Read More

Banner design by Zen Faulkes

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

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 ├╝berkind, 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!

The illustrator Maven is working on it, but a dumbo bum isn't really a lot to work with...
