    Movie Trading Card


    Anybody living in Virginia last summer can relate to this episode of “The Twilight Zone.”  It was so hot that I would have believe the weatherman if he said it was caused by the sun coming closer for a visit.  The expression on the woman’s face in my gif was …

    Assignment: Motivational Poster

    Here’s my motivation poster.  This was again done from scratch like most of my work. I did this one in the spirit of relaxation. In life we are always so busy most of the time we are so busy, we forget to stop and take a breather. …

    Missing Glasses


    This assignment was to create an Animated GIF associated with the Twilight Zone. I decided that what better way to torture Mr. Bemis if he never did find his glasses. This is precisely what this is a GIF of!

    Creative Commons

    The Scottlo Show


    So, long time listener first time blogger about Scottlo (kidding, he’s only had 14 for the ds106zone and I’ve been kind of bad at keeping up with it.)  So anyways, I usually listen to Scottlo while I’m at work which is a nice break, except for a few of them …

    May I take your order?


    This one I figured would be just fun and silly. The assignment was to make an outrageous McDonald’s drive through order in an accent. I added the remix of “Uncle Bob.” It is all my own voice, first recording.

    Pulpnight Sun

    This project was a little tricky, because I had to play with the layers and the smudge tool a lot in order to maintain the aesthetic of the original design. I found the sun online and just layered one on top of the other. I couldn’t the font …

    Episode 7:

    Macklemore Lyrics from ‘Can’t Hold Us’

    This is a pretty straightforward assignment where the only computer work is about putting text onto a photo. The hardest part for me was figuring out a top-100 song. I was forced to enlist the help of my much more hip girlfriend. And the …
