I almost forgot to put a link on here for my digital landscape project…which is here.
We were supposed to create a “landscape” however, it took me so long to get the hang of Dreamweaver that I didn’t put as many links and videos as I would have liked. I did a literal landscape with a cactus and balloon…because that’s the name of my blog and because “literal” is how I roll.

Also we were supposed to link to our favorite digital landscapes by classmates…I dig this one because its delightfully annoying and you can get stuck in it. That may not sound appealing, but I think it’s great…see it…here.

Last Project!

For this project, we had to create a piece of video art.  This is so not my thing, but it was kind of fun.  I took a couple of old videos from, one about not doing drugs and the other a weird animation about the U.S.A. that came out for the bicentennial in 1976.  I used Adobe Premiere Pro to do the editing.  I overlapped the video segments, changing their opacity and slowed the song down.  I like the way the two videos merged together.

This is a picture of me after I messed with it in photoshop.  I did this to practice for an upcoming project.

Poster Project

Because the whole financial crisis, bailout, econmic armegedon thing has been in the news the past couple of weeks, I decided to address that, since my other ideas were too ambitious for my skills (or lack of).  I used the familiar Chance and Community Chest cards from Monopoly and added in reference to the bailout.  To get the images, I scanned in my own cards from the game, although in one I took out the Monopoly guy and added in the logos of the failed financial institutions.  I typed in my own text, similar to the phrasing on the cards and tried to match the colors and fonts. I also gave each one a little texture to emulate the worn out cardstocky-ness that my game’s cards had since they’re a little old.

Assignment #1

Our first assignment was to create a piece of digital art using a program that it not normally used for art.  For this I used Excel, a program I had never used before.  After many failures with the shape tools I reduced the size of the grid so the each rectangle was small.  I filled in the palate with secondary colors and selected rectangles to fill white to create the shapes.  Then I added a stripe in its complimentary color.  This created a more minimalist style.  Although I included all three experiments the green one that I did first is my favorite.
