Break out of the clipart box!

  1. 1. ?<br />Break Out of the Clipart Box!<br />How to Draw a Stick Figure<br />Sally Gore, MS, MS LIS<br />Lamar Soutter Library<br />University of Massachusetts Medical School<br />2011 MAHSLIN Annual Meeting<br />
  2. 2. So a few months back, I did a webinar on the use of content<br />management systems and Web 2.0 for MAHSLIN. <br />Remember?<br />
  3. 3. After it was over, our colleague and friend, Michelle Eberle, asked me, “Where do you get the clipart for your presentations? <br />I always love it.”<br />And I answered,<br />“I draw it.”<br />Really?<br />Yep, True Story<br />
  4. 4. I drew this.<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />
  5. 5. ?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />This, too.<br />?<br />?<br />
  6. 6. And this one.<br />
  7. 7. Here’s another. Different talk.<br />
  8. 8. Oh, and I was pretty proud of these. You might have seen them in my starring role on the MLA Webcast. <br />heh, heh <br />
  9. 9. The point is, <br />I drew every one of these using PowerPoint. <br />Yes.<br />PowerPoint. <br />If you look at them closely, you’ll see there’s not much to any of them besides circles and triangles and rectangles and a line here and there.<br />It’s EASY!<br />
  10. 10. NOTHING MORE THAN… <br />THESE THINGS<br />THIS STICK DUDE…<br />
  11. 11. PUT TOGETHER LIKE THIS:<br />JUST CONNECT THE PIECES AND VOILA!<br />
  12. 12. Need a whole army of ‘em? Cut and paste, cut and paste, cut and paste…<br />
  13. 13. Need some formal attire? <br />Triangles anyone?<br />+<br />=<br />IT REALLY IS THAT EASY<br />
  14. 14. When it comes to PPT (Word, too, for that matter), the drawing pallet, the shapes, the fill and line colors… <br />these are ALL your friends. <br />I hope you’ll learn to use them. Be yourself and express your thoughts and ideas the way YOU would do so, not some canned clipart. <br />HAVE FUN! <br />
  15. 15. DOODLE ON! <br />
