    Google Draw Something


    I did the Google Draw Something assignment for 2.5 Stars. The assignment was really fun, but pretty difficult. It was a quick assignment to do and I did it like it was a game, but it was hard to draw things because I don’t have much artistic ability.

    Once pictures …
