My Dog ate my Homework

January 31, 2012

This week our 'homework' for our magazine module was to create a picture with a philosophical quote relating to a picture of a dog. 

My quote was 'common sense is not too common', so I tried to create the wackiest picture possible. 

These were the original pictures I found on flkr creative commons:

I created my final picture by using the lasso tool in fireworks, cutting out the pictures and deleting the background, and then using the blur tool to un-sharpen the edges. 

I then added text and edited the alignment and shortened the space between the letters, and added a drop shadow.
