    Marble Steps


      I used Christina Hendricks picture of steps from her photo safari as one of my inspiration works. I just really love this picture because the steps look marble, and I like to imagine they lead to a different world. It captures urban beauty, and on top of that, the …

    A Challenge


    For one of my inspiration pieces I chose to use a What’s the Error? assignment. My computer crashed while I was originally trying to write this post, so I lost the original link to the inspire page, but I did upload it. Anyways… I chose this, unconventional piece of work …

    Eyes Are Windows to the Soul


    I chose Stephanie’s Eye Selfie to use as one of my inspirational pieces. You literally can’t go wrong with an eye picture because they’re all so expressive and  capture your unique color(s) and print, like a fingerprint. It seems like the longer you stare at it, the more influenced you …

    Dinner at 6:00 o’clock: Radio Show


    We had a bumpy road to get to this radio show completed. It tried on many faces and had went through lots of plot transformations. I wrote basically the entire dialogue and plot, Amanda made the sound effects, Patrick did a majority of the editing, and everyone else contributed their …

      So the Daily Create was to take an image and make it teal and orange for an action shot. I made this dog a super hero because it made  sense with the action scene. And the way he’s holding the dog.…

      The Daily Create was to take a picture of your foot on something. I thought immediately about putting my foot on someones head. It reminded me of someone conquering their foe, which is funny because I’m like 5”2′ and weigh 110Ib soaking wet, and the person in this picture …

    Heart Racing…


      Needles absolutely terrify me. I’ve never donated blood, and whenever they need to draw blood for testing, my stomach drops, my heart races, I start seeing stars and black spots and I practically hyperventilate. I’ll be watching, say Dexter for example. I bury My head in my boyfriends shoulder …

    Radio Show Poster


    I chose a most wanted poster with a mirror in the place the picture usually is placed. Not only do I not want to spoil the plot, I mainly did it so you see yourself, implying that you’d be next. I used pixlr, and got a most wanted poster template …

    I used freesound for all of my music and effects. I started with a base, the creepy music. From there, I started seeing which words took me to which sounds and built up from there. I decided to go with a stalker scene (plus I love the show Stalkers). I’ve …

    Coffee Stain Art


    So I did the coffee stain art daily create and loved it! I looked at the circular mark and thought, it’d be great to insert some irony. So I made coffee (which I had no problems doing) and made my mark. I attempted to create a birds eye view of …

    Leave It To Who?


    I used Audacity and found the Leave it to Beaver theme song, and then searched freesound.com for some creepy music to infuse into it.I did this because, up until now, I’ve made Delilah seem picture perfect. But I used dark music because there’s a dark side Delilah’s been carrying with …

    Color; this department store manipulated our society’s take on color to organize their store. You can clearly tell where the girls section is by the overwhelming pink and white. And in the boys section, you’ll find tons of blues and browns, plus a lovely picture of a rugged mountainside. While …

    Blade Runner.


    The thing I noticed while watching Blade Runner, is most of the scenes capture a singular person. The space is causing different lighting, and causing your eye to focus on the character in the frame. The helicopter scenes would have the camera facing down, onto the towering buildings and the …
