Batgirl @ Your Library

I wanted to share the image that I created last night and posted to my social media sites, but also give credit as to where the idea came from.  Here she is:

<img class=”alignnone  wp-image-819″ title=”Nananananananana BATGIRL! Librarian Batgirl! ::shhhhh::” alt=”” src=”http://hafuboti.wpcomstaging.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/batgirllibrary.jpg?w=584″ width=”584″ height=”778″>

I wanted to be sure to credit my main inspiration for this which was seeing <a href=”http://bulletinboardideas.org/1097/vampire-library-symbol-halloween-display-inspiration/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>this</a> pinned to <em>Pinterest</em>. The other thing that made a light bulb go on above my head was seeing this <a href=”http://poplibrary.tumblr.com/post/63190289642/bibliophilefiles-did-you-know” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”><em>Batgirl is a Librarian</em> post</a> on&nbsp;<em>Tumblr&nbsp;</em>(have I mentioned how much in love I am with&nbsp;<em>Tumblr</em>? Deeply deeply in love – I should have tumbled sooner).

After almost a year of futzing around on&nbsp;<em>Photoshop</em>, I feel like I’m finally starting to be able to take my ideas and translate them visually using&nbsp;<em>Photoshop.</em> &nbsp;Yeah, I know it’s not perfect, and there’s still things I think could use tweaking, but at some point I just had to stop doing tweaks and let it go. Yeah, I’m a wee bit of a perfectionist who’s trying to be less so. &nbsp;And seeing this image so large I can’t help but cringe at the things I feel are off. &nbsp;BUT NO. I will not give into it.

The only other thing that I wanted to mention is that I believe in the free culture movement – so please know that this image is available for anyone to use/modify. &nbsp;Please share alike! I had a lot of fun and Bruce taught me some new (to me)&nbsp;<em>Photoshop&nbsp;</em>techniques – so in the future I hope to make some other fun variations of the “public library logo.” I’ll be sure to share!

<strong>Update:&nbsp;</strong>I did indeed make some more logos (both DC and Marvel – plus a few bonus ones)! <a href=”http://wp.me/p2N1aX-lW” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Check them out here</a>.
