Week Cinco, Cinq, Fünf, etc!

Hello all! Hope you’ve had a good week despite the on-and-off weather we’ve been having. C’mon, September–make up your mind. Is it going to be rainy and cold or warm and pleasant? I learned a lot this week, and I… Continue Reading →

pumpkins, pooh bear, photoshop.

My three visual assignments this week took me a LONG time, but they were so worth it! I’m very happy with the results. Image with a Message 1 star I have always had a love for quotes. Maybe it’s my… Continue Reading →

best of (so far)…

I’ll keep this post short, simple, and sweet: I chose these pictures–a mix of ds106photoblitz and Daily Creates–to start my “Best Of…” gallery, because they illustrate my old soul. From the painted, antique-looking bird figurine that decorates my room and… Continue Reading →

(photo)blitzkrieg bop.

The photoblitz project–while fun–was challenging. I’m a perfectionist, and I tend to over think assignments. These traits translate to walking around campus longer than 20 minutes trying to find a perfect setting or subject, which, as any artist knows, is… Continue Reading →

The title quote of this post–and the linked-to-moment in the embedded YouTube video–made me both laugh out loud and feel a rush of relief. As a perfectionist, to hear a professional artist who obviously has the same worth ethic and… Continue Reading →

Week 3 and Pumpkin Pie.

Hello all! This week’s assignments were actually quite fun despite my sickness. Yup, as you can see from my third Daily Create assignment, I have been unwell. Here’s the short story: Wednesday of this past week, I began to feel… Continue Reading →

in[SPIRE] and appreciate “big damn heroes.”

Much like the person who suggested this piece be added to the in[SPIRE] site, I was first attracted to the use of warm colors, bold text, and minimalist graphics–a favorite aesthetic of mine in digital art and what I would… Continue Reading →

Storytelling, Digital Storytelling, and Everything In-Between!

Since I have an inclination toward folklore (see: my Dracula post) and am a communication major, I define storytelling as sharing and teaching cultural values, norms, and beliefs in a creative fashion. I picture generations of tribes or villages gathered… Continue Reading →
