Animal? A Creative Animal!

“I Would be a Creative Animal,” image of Leonardo da Vinci‘s Vitruvian Man from

The Daily Create, tdc1988, asks “If you were an animal, what animal would you be?

My first thought was to go with “human,” and slide in a picture of da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man — but I then thought that might be a bit of a cop out, and decided to engage a bit more fully with the prompt.

Following along the notion of ds106 creativity, I turned to Google (!!) and searched “creative animal” for some inspiration.

None of this really got me anywhere. I like the creative animal idea. How to represent that?

The beaver builds dams and lodges. That’s creative, isn’t it? Plus, it’s the national animal of Canada.

Still, all that time spent swimming around in ponds and chewing down trees didn’t sound too appealing. I don’t do a lot of that myself. Plus, as a rodent, it was #10 on that list of creative animals.

It’s July 1st. I could slap a red Canadian Maple Leaf on the Vitruvian Man, and go with that? On second thought, that might not go over too well.

Okay. I started this post on June 19. It’s time to make my decision.
