    War Slug


    Just saying the phrase spirit animal conjures the narrator’s exploits in Fight Club.

    Today’s Daily Create called for creating your dream animal, forcing one to ask ‘what qualities represent me?’

    Well, laziness, for sure, combined with hatred of the outside world. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you, War Slug.

    Most …

    I Bring You Design

    Following the audio of Hollis with his kidnappers, I chose to create the design elements for my final project. There were two images that I wanted to create: one to advertise ANTISA and one to urge people to report sightings of ANTISA to the FBI.

    Nick Spencer and Ramon Rosanas’s Astonishing Ant-Man


    There’s a tendency in comic book circles—on blogs and in podcasts—to start a conversation about a superhero with that superhero’s first appearance or with their biggest and best-known outing. For Iron Man, it’s pretty much either 1962’s Tales of Suspense #39 or it’s 2008’s Jon Favreau-directed Iron Man film. For …

    The Aqueous Killer


    The first murder seemed like an accident. A girl, no more than the age of twenty-three drowned in the public pool. At first, many people believed it was an accident. “Maybe she didn’t know how to swim?” This was a lie. It was discovered that she was on the local …

    Humpty Dumpty did NOT sit on a wall…


    The assignment posted for the end of week four seemed to be a little confusing.  Minimal instruction was provided, unlike in previous weeks.  While the mid-week assignment was filled with various cinematic filming techniques, there was never any direction given on the actual video editing aspect of film.  As a …

    My Love For Videogames Knows No Boundaries


    What do you love? (2 Stars)

    Love is a strong word. When you use it, you are implying that you have an intense and deep feeling of affection towards something. My feelings for playing video games is that way. As a kid, I would play for hours upon hours of …
