    Winifred’s Place


    I tried to base Winifred’s appearance loosely on the picture that I used for her on my previous post:

    The goal was to make her appear kind and approachable in order to match her friendly and loving personality.

    I placed Winifred in front of her house, which I also identified …

    Charlee Seen at Her Job!


    Charlee is seen here at the art and hobby store at which she works. She doesn’t necessarily love working there, but she likes her coworkers and gets a lot of hours so she sticks with it.


    The store here is one that I have back home, called Paper Source. …

    Design Assignments


    This is the lost and found poster I created for Professor Burtis’ hat and I really hope it can help her to find it! HOW TRAGIC… IT HAS BEEN A STAPLE IN THIS CLASS

    This is the design I created for my characters name, it is a little more psychedelic …

    Learning to be better at Design!!!!



    After listening to the talk  by Paula Scher I’ve come to conclusion that you do not need to be a design professional to be successful in design.  I felt like at the beginning she was talking directly to me.  She said that you do not need to know what …

    Evelyn Sparrow is Here!


    My design for my character, Evelyn Sparrow, came from the fact that she is a college student at the moment. She dresses to fit in, but she also adds a bit of her own flare. She likes the plain and simple look of a t-shirt and jeans, but she’s also …

    Greetings From…


    Here is my destination postcard! I chose New York City because it’s my favorite place ever and I miss it so much. I chose to keep the design simple and try to use what I learned about bold and skinny fonts, as well as using colors that coordinate well with …

    Character design: Winston on stage


    For my character Winston, I used the resume I made her to create the character! On her resume it has her height, hair and eye color, and information when she goes to auditions, so since she is an actress I decided to bring her to life on stage! I thought …

    Alternative Book Cover


    Honestly, the dog in this book is the most important character, he deserves to be on the cover and also I wanted to portray its about zombies lol.  Without a companion of some sort I think the apocalypse would be much harder to get through

    Calligraphy Fun


    I had never thought about it, but my character, Felicity, would TOTALLY be good at calligraphy. I chose to do the assignment, Generate Cool Letters, and chose something I thought represented her well that she would actually draw her name as. This is what I came out with:

    I like …

    Flick’s Life


    As I mentioned in my character introduction (Linked HERE), Felicity, or Flick, is a college student at NYU. She’s not super happy there, but is trying to make the best of it. When putting her someplace in the world, since the end hasn’t happened yet, I decided it made …

    Tala in Her Natural Enviroment


    I placed Tala in a lush environment, standing on a rock next to a river. As an ecology major, she would find her self amongst nature quite often. I believe she would find peace and connection with nature because she has minimal connection with other humans.

    To keep her prepared …

    Book Cover Remix


    I chose to read the War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells for this class, and so I made it’s alternative cover. This was a little difficult because I don’t have the knowledge or resources to make it perfect, I just have to work with what is available to me …

    Let’s (Ted)Talk


    The TedTalk of Paula Scher was by far my favorite TedTalk. The second she mentioned her work for the Public Theatre in New York, I was as tuned in as possible. As someone who wants to go into Arts Administration, it’s awesome to see that there are other people who …

    World War Z: Alternate Book Cover


    Here is my Alternate Cover for the book World War Z.  So I choose to do my alternate book cover in a stair step fashion with my text, something different than I had seen with most of the book covers or movies I looked up for this book.  The title …

    Listening to & Learning Design


    Scher and Carson both made me question my definition of design. Some of the “designs” that they showed seemed like everyday things to me.

    When looking at this image from Scher’s talk, I simply saw a t-shirt. Of course, I knew that shirts have to be created, but I had …

    New York City: June 18, 2058


    Week 3: Tell it/Tweet it

    Crystalline frost crawled across the landscape like an animated summoning from some Ancient Ice Demon, engulfing trees, creeping up buildings, glossing over puddles and fountains, and turning them solid. I watched from my perch on the ninth floor of my apartment building the ice sheet …

    Alex in his natural habitat


    I decided to create Alex in his natural/happiest place. Wouldn’t you like him to help you out at a local blockbuster? He shouldn’t be this buff but I got him as skinny as possible without it looking weird.

    Winston’s Character Word Cloud


    For this assignment I had a lot of fun! I took time and thought of things and words that I felt best represented my character. I had to think hard about my character’s past, present, and future when creating this word cloud! I actually used the website called Word It …

    RIP HUMAN RACE: Contradiction Creation


    For this assignment I had to create a graphic that was designed for a certain feeling or theme. For my graphics (I made 3) I decided I wanted it to kind of have a “End of the world propaganda” theme. I created these graphics to be ironic, like the assignment …

    That Soft Rain Actually Won’t Be Here For A While So


    Alternative Ending: There will Come Soft Rain, Ray Bradbury, 1950

    Harry lurched forward, gasping as he came to. The image of a family’s white paint shadow silhouettes starkly contrasting against the charred wall in the middle of a wasteland was all he could see. He blinked his eyes, clutching his …

    Apocalyptic Writing That Got All Up In The Feels


    Week 3: Short Story Readings



    Finis, Frank Lillie Pollock, 1906


    Well that was terrifying. This is one Apocalyptic concept that I had never originally considered before. At the beginning, I had forgotten the Apocalyptic element of the narrative – I too was excited about the concept of …
