    Superpowers? Sure, I’ll take one.


    Today’s Daily Create was to pick a superpower to have. I think if I could have any superpower, I would want to be able to talk to animals. Not only have I always wondered what my dog is thinking, but what a unique opportunity it would be. I think a …

    I Am Picasso


    Today’s Daily Create was to create a portrait of “David.” I do not know who David is, but the instructions included a picture so I got a little bit of an idea as to what he looks like. The Picasso Head I created of David is below. Want to make …

    Just A Thought…


    Since this week is about audio storytelling, I think it’s important to reflect upon the fact that audio can do a lot of storytelling in our own lives in the form of music. With that being said, I haven’t caught on to Soundcloud as a place where I like to …

    I’m Sorry


    Today’s Daily Create was to make a picture with words on it with the theme being “I’m Sorry.” This is an interesting concept and I took it as making something with a sarcastic twinge. My idea was based on the massive amount of school work I have for this week. …

    Reflect on Noir and Visual Storytelling


    At the beginning of this week, we were supposed to watch 2 noir movies to get us in the mindset of visual storytelling with noir characteristics. Watching “Killer’s Kiss” was required and I chose to watch “He Walked By Night” along with it. Here’s the breakdown:

    1. First up is …

    Drawing Without Lifting The Pencil


    Today’s Daily Create was to create a picture without lifting our pencil (as explained by the title). I thought that this would be very simple, but turned out to be a little more complicated than I thought. First off, I am not very creative when it comes to these kinds …

    Noir Safari


    This post is completely dedicated to my Photo Safari that we had to complete this week. It was challenging to take really cool pictures because I don’t really go anywhere too fun besides campus. Obviously a lot of these photos are edited, but what’s more mysterious than ever knowing what …

    Daily Create Paper Sculpture


    Today’s Daily Create was to make a paper sculpture. When I first saw the image that was an example on the daily create site, I thought, “there’s no way I’d be able to do this.” But I took my best shot at it and although it might be simple, I …

    Noir Readings


    I guess this post should have technically been done first this week, but I just jumped right into the other assignments we had to complete. This week we had to read at least 3 pieces of noir work. One that was required was “The Postman Always Rings Twice” and the …
