    Ira glass reflection

    by

    In part 1 of the storytelling series, the first nugget of information that really stood out to me was the idea of having momentum when storytelling to capture audiences. It’s not the message itself that captivates the audience, it’s the story and the way it’s paced so that people become …

    Dev week 3

    by

    I started off this week’s assignments well by getting a head start on my ds 106 tasks, and I’ happy to say that the process was so much smoother and enjoyable than last week. Now that I took my time and focused more on the quality rather than the deadline …

    The Vignelli Canon (reflection)

    by

    Vignelli lived an incredible life and had an exceptional skill in making clean, flowing designs. I find the way he designed the map of the New York City Subway map fascinating, as he didn’t simply design it to be accurate, rather representations so that people could understand it much easier. …

    Design Blitz

    by

    The idea behind the “Balance” photo was to showcase how precise and purposeful the layout on this little disk was. Naturally there’s a focal point on the disk, but at the same time the eye can wander over the full design and not feel over or underwhelmed. The two trees …

    ds 106: reacts

    by

    This morning I went to check up on my sweet baby hognose snake and give him something to eat. I love him dearly and he’s grown accustomed to me interacting with him. Of course, I apparently needed to ruin this beautiful bond as when I went to adjust some of …

    ds 106: One Story / Four Icons (2 stars)

    by

    I picked one of my favorite web shows for this project, Red vs Blue by Roosterteeth. Though I’m not fully caught up on the story as of today, these icons represent points in the show. The helmet represents the characters in the beginning, as everyone in the beginning of this …

    ds 106: Are We There Yet? (3 stars)

    by

    A turtle is lifted gently into sky, passing through clouds and watching the world shrink below him. He wants to look down so badly, yet he can’t bring himself to approach the edge. The sky has never seemed bright until now.

    I picked this old picture of me holding a …

    by

    The Crimson City once flourished as a grand, densely populated city that boasted military prowess and entertainment. The city was in conflict with the neighboring city of Leons, and in the hopes of gaining an edge in their stalemate work began on a secret bioweapon. A monster of huge proportions …

    ds 106: Wait, Where’d That Guy Come From?

    by

    It’s not sure how it got there, but it knows it’s not alone. There are others just like it all around, disguised as flesh and spandex. They go about a fake life, blending into the hectic scene. There’s someone in particular they’re looking for, but he’s nowhere to be seen. …

    ds 106: What the font (4 stars)

    by

    This project in particular was something I thought would be somewhat simple, and yet it proved to be somewhat frustrating for me. I couldn’t get a solid idea of what I wanted to do for this despite looking through hundreds of pieces done by other people. Eventually I thought it’d …

    ds 106: Minimalist TV/Movie Poster (3.5 stars)

    by

    This image started out as a rough idea for a tattoo I wanted to get in the future, and while browsing some minimalist poster designs I got inspired to add some flair to this old idea. Many different medias feature blood moons in different ways, and this one was inspired …

    Oh boy what a week! Lots of pictures and editing and reading for the end of this week. Though I have some nice results, I can’t say I’m overly proud of what I managed to accomplish this week. I feel like a baby bird that saw some other birds flying, …

    Me holding Toast

    To start with, I cannot figure out why this image is as small as it is. The picture is of me barely holding up my giant teddy bear Toast, who I’ve had for years now and gives wonderful hugs. I went out with Toast to my friend’s …

    My old laptop

    Found my old laptop and I thought it’d make for some interesting color shifts, and sure enough it really did! The image got pixelated thanks to Grafx2 for some reason I’ve yet to figure out, but besides my annoyances with it I like how it turned out! …

    ds 106: Splash the color (3.5 stars)

    This one gave me a lot of trouble in all honesty. I really wish I started this one sooner because I kept reselecting images based on their complexity and the colors I wanted to pop. I settled on this handsome noodle because of their striking colors, although separating the colors …

    Material reflection: Week 1

    by

    I feel like a lot of the information about taking photos wasn’t really new information for me. I’ve taken plenty of art classes, and I’ve earned about all sorts of the terms and tricks described in many different blogs and youtube videos. And yet when I personally went to start …

    Photo safari reflection

    I was incredibly nervous before starting this assignment, mainly because of the time limit. 15 minutes to take all sorts of different pictures didn’t seem like enough time to get even a few done to my liking. But as I got started, I found the process to be pretty quick! …

    Bright light

    The picture I took for the prompt of bright lighting definitely surprised me the most with how much I like it. To start with I wasn’t expecting clarity, maybe a large blob of white with the wall in the background. Instead, I can clearly see the lamp shade, …
