I’ve written before about the ‘You’re deadly’ poster I created a while back. I have created another poster using Glogster. It’s fairly simple as it’s the first one I’ve ever created. I’m sure I’ll get better as I do more. February 2012 Update: The Glogster link has failed. I’m reposting my original poster. You can … Continue reading You’re deadly, I’m deadly. We’re all deadly.
