    Visuality (week 3)

    by

    Dear Mom,

    Things are picking up here at camp, so much so that I don’t really have time to write to you. In fact, I hardly miss you at all, what with all the projects and activities. This past week I did several daily creates that were image-driven, though I …

    Warholling My Wife (and Me)

    by

    I followed John Johnston’s lead and started off with the Warhol assignment (560…3 stars). I don’t have a mac and thus photobooth was out and I didn’t try the face trace because…well, because I figured one project at time, sweet DS106.

    First Stop Motion

    by

    In an effort to firmly establish myself as stereotypical and uninteresting, this is my first stop motion “film.”
