    Time-Space-Relation Project

    I found I had a hard time relating to and working on this project.  Maybe some more examples from previous classes will make this easier for classes down the road, but i had a hard time wrapping my brain around how serious the project was supposed...

    I used the photoshop express program available on the IOS system to modify a photo I took exactly one year ago. The photo was already of a weird quality due to it being taken with a 3DS, so modifying the photo proved to be a rather odd exercise. I chan...

    Where I'm from Poem

    I am from cow pastures
    and elementary school bus walks filled with scary, violent dogs.
    From the 80's and inception of gaming
    and from the wilderness I used to despise.
    I am from the war on marriage
    and the dissolution of love.

    I am from the southern state,
    from the “Bible Belt” of sodom.
    I am from Christians exclaiming they know the truth
    and Jews whom are less overbearing than their Christian brethren.
    I am from a truth that a book does not rule my life,
    and that books are the key to freedom from ignorance of deities.

    I am from blizzards in the 90's,
    to the oppressively humid heat of Georgia.
    I am from perseverance with constant failure
    and from underachieving.
    Yet I have achieved things that less than 1% have done,
    or will ever do, ever.

    I am from game-nerds, baseball bats,
    and outdoor wild people.
    I am from the need to be a nice guy,
    even if that leads to the inevitable failure.
    I am from forever friend zones and solitude.
    Where no one can break the bubble.

    I am from music never play int he early years,
    but created personally later.
    From concert venues and late night shows,
    to large festivals where you meet the world.

    I am from stone-will, but fluid as water.
    I was here, but am not now
    and I am invisible, but not for much longer.

    DS106 Assignment C: What’s The Meme?

    For my third DS 106 assignment I decided to create a meme under the assignment “What’s The Meme?” Using Pixlr I cropped a picture from my personal library of two of my friends (with their permission of course) and added the text. The meme is in reference to Halo 4, a video game that we... Read more.

    DS 106 Assignment CI did the Over Edit Yourself assignment just for giggles and so that I could easily eliminate an assignment off the list. My picture ended up looking like a late 80's B movie filter for some kind of toxic looking picture. Cheers.

    The assignment was to choose one of your favorite lines from a song and illustrate it using only typography. Consider how the font, color, sizes and placement of the typography can reflect or emphasize the meaning of the words. I’m not sure if I did this correctly, but I still think it came out kind […]
