A digital story for my mother
So, Mother’s Day is just round the corner. And I know that my mother has no idea what I do for a living, so I made her this to illustrate what a digital story actually is… For anyone else who doesn’t really know, a ‘traditional’ DS is a short, personal story, illustrated by still images. Powerful due to their highly personal nature, digital stories can be compelling tools for advocacy and campaigning. They are also rather lovely things to make for your loved ones.
It would have been nice to have been able to raid the family photo albums for this, but i didn’t have time so I pretty much had to make do with what I had at home. It would also have been nice to spend a bit more time making this – so much I could have said and didn’t think to – but this is a case of something being better than nothing. I hope she likes it!
