I’ve not been keeping up with #western106 much other than a couple of artonthecouch posts.
But I have done the odd Daily Create. I am noting them here as some sort of record before they are lost in twitter.
The 4th February:
#ds106#dailycreate#tdc1488 Create an Oregon Trail Game Screen for DS106
A quick google for the Oregon Trail found a pile of bitmap art. Seemed like a nyan cat riff might be appropriate. Downloaded the gif, opened in fireworks and chopped away.
5th February: #ds106 #dailycreate #tdc1489 Create some stop motion #SixSecondArt using Vine http://dlvr.it/KQVvRB
I’ve not got a vine account so just make a 6 second stop motion video. Snapped some photos with my iPhone (sitting on a lego mount), stitched together with the 5secondApp and exported as a video. I had to speed it up a bit to get 6 seconds, here is a 17 second version.

A one line response:
@ds106dc #tdc1491 #ds106 light out for the territories, cut your own trail.

8th February #ds106 #dailycreate #tdc1492 5 Years Since Dr Oblivion Disappeared: Craft an Western… http://dlvr.it/KRs90Q
The idea of Cowboy G-Men is a a wee bit mind boggling. This is a really badly edited file. Quick & dirty. I did run a quick fliter over the cover to try and match the Doctor’s face, but didn’t spend enough time on it to do a good job.
11th February #ds106 #dailycreate #tdc1495 Treasure of the Hills http://dlvr.it/KTNB8b
We were to draw a map. Remembering the ‘lights out for the territories’ above I remembered that the map is not the territory. So my tweet went: @ds106dc #ds106 #dailycreate #tdc1495 this mondrian is not the territory http://www.isloyhere.com/mondriaan.php
Which lead to a nice bit of twitter banter.
@johnjohnston @ds106dc do I see the treasure down there, in that corner?

@ronald_2008 @ds106dc perhaps Mondrian distributes treasure evenly?

and so on…
12th February #ds106 #dailycreate #tdc1496 Extra Terrestrial Visitors from the Far Frontier? http://dlvr.it/KTsbyz
Was a no brainer, back to FireWorks for a quick edit. The cow head was found on Flickr with a no known copyright restrictions filter.
Yesterday: #ds106 #dailycreate #tdc1497 Caption Remington http://dlvr.it/KVLKcj
I was trying to hint to other folk that they should license their DS106 content to make it review and remix friendly.
The stream for the daily create has been pretty active and it is great to see all of the different responses. I am not sure I’ll get to doing much more on #western106 but I am certainly enjoying the odd 15 minutes on the daily create. Thanks to Alan (and Mariana) for the continual work on organising the fun.
