    graphic design is my passion


    so the general vibe that i got from the readings and articles & my minor rabbit-holing is that less tends to be more, and that good designs tends to be somewhat timeless. And I understand this and the appeals of this, especially for brands trying to build brand recognition, but …

    this was delightful! I had a lot of fun with this assignment, of which the goal was to record a phone conversation with myself, but to try and make it seem like its two completely different people! Here’s the final product!

    marius pick up your phone


    This assignment had me leaving a voicemail for a character from some sort of media. I decided, in keeping both with the 80s theme and with my personal interests, to leave a voicemail for Marius Pontmercy regarding his shirking of his revolutionary duties. Give it a listen!

    scooby do vibes


    so my original plan for the short story with only sound bytes was a titanic-esque drowning story, then i realized that was a little bit dark, and changed pace to a more lighthearted ooky spooky vibe, much like the popular cartoon scooby do!

    and here she is, in all her …

    a 20-30 minute radio show is in our ds106 futures! wahoo! 20-30 minutes isn’t too terribly long, but it certainly is an amount of time that needs a modicum of planning and idea generating before jumping in.

    so im currently reading 1984 by Geore Orwell, and my oh my is …

  15. @lizlynnkondzel



    okay so Moon Graffiti does a really really good job of setting up a sense of place and time; contextualizing the scenario and giving the audience a setting and a literal visual while literally not having a visual, which i think is just. so cool. this story was definitely more …

    yall. i made my own assignment.

    Another week of daily creates!


    I started my daily creates with a relatively straightforward prompt, which was certainly a nice way to start off. We had to caption this photo: My mind immediately went to games of my youth and their rules and regulations, so I captioned it with a throwback to Hide ‘n Seek!…

    to yoga, to yogurt, to rice and beans and cheese


    I really like Rent– the musical, not the economic thing. It’s set in Christmas of 1989 (yes I know I’m pushing it but it counts!). My favorite song from Rent is “La Vie Bohème”, a group number with all the main characters singing about anything and everything and life as …
