back on track

Sooo, I’ve been busy. Haven’t had the sort of time I’d like to put towards this class, but I’m here with another edition of “Take One” (I’m working on leaving some assignments, I swear!). This week, I decided to try my hand on Spreadsheet Invasion, mostly because it sounded deceptively sinister. Anyways, the concept was […]

WARNING

This time around, I chose the design project “Warning“.  The task of the assignment was to create a warning label for something that exists only in a movie or in your imagination. My first thought: the time traveling Delorean from Back to the Future. But I couldn’t find a cool picture that I wanted to […]

If You’re Too School for Cool.

I absolutely loved this assignment. I may have to do more. I was looking through the photos on the first page of the site and this one really stood out to me. First of all- because they’re absolute psycho. Secondly- because that old man is definitely a beast. The next step was to look through […]

The Big Caption

I was browsing the assignments over here trying to find one I liked. I had initially thought about doing this assignment, in which you have to come up with fortunes that characters in a movie might have gotten. I didn’t choose that one because I couldn’t settle on a movie, just too many choices. So […]

What the Font?

I decided to do another design assignment for ds106 because they’re a lot of fun. As I was scrolling through the design assignment I decided on the Font assignment. I already had an idea in mind when I was reading through the description. I decided to design the Deathly Hallows “logo” from the Harry Potter…

DaVinci’s Power Outlet

In honor of Thomas Edison’s 164th birthday today, I decided to do this design assignment. I knew right away that I wanted to either over-simplify something or over-complicate it. Then I decided that complicated things are more fun to draw … Continue reading

Ptaitt: Make some art damnit!

For one of our assignments this week , we were to choose an assignment from here. I Went with this one. The title pretty much says it all. I like this assignment mostly because it allowed me to do what I like to do. When I’m bored I turn on Photoshop and just aimlessly make […]

The Big Caption

My “Big Picture” assignment. I have a particular love for this helicoper more than a disdain for Mrs. Palin. The helicopter here is a Russian made MI-8 which I flew in while working in Afghanistan. I was fortunate enough to log nearly 1300 hours as a passenger. After some rapport building vodka and smokes my Ukrainian pilots trained me on how […]

the big caption

An interesting assignment, full of possibilities — take any random photo from The Big Picture and add typographical text elements in a way that changes the message, in the spirit of The Big Caption. It took me a little while to decide which assignment I’d choose for this week, I must admit.  I spent some […]
