The assignment was to draw a place in your dream. Immediately I thought of this reoccurring dream I keep having. In the dream I am a finalist in the last HOH competition of the hit reality game show Big Brother. The final HOH competition is between the last three players in the game. It’s divided into 3 three different competitions that each challenge a different aspect of the play. The first is usually endurance, then a strength/puzzle type competition, and the final is usually questions dealing with the house guests. The winner of the first automatically goes to the third and the winner of the second competes against the winner of the first. That person then chooses who they will take to the finale where the evicted house guest who became jury members will vote who they think should win. I always have this dream where I’m competing against an ex best friend and her sister, but the two of them are working together. In the competition we must carry over the round circles and stack them on the other wall, but you must use them to climb up to the spot where they belong. The first time I had this dream I won and the second time I woke up before I finished the competition.
Today’s daily create was to take a picture of the happiest part of your day. The happiest part of my day was lunch at Olive Garden with my mom. See the part of the external hard drive at the bottom of my picture. Yeah the worst part of my day was when I realized it didn’t save the documents and all the files on my computer and I had already wiped my whole computer. So bye bye documents! ):
Today’s daily create was to take a picture of something red. My roommates boyfriend got an Xbox…….. and put it in our living room. So yay just what I always wanted him here all the time and now taking over our TV. So while he was setting it up a color choice was red. I don’t know why it’s saying that my picture isn’t available, however there it is above.
Today’s daily create was to find a hidden picture in cracks in the sidewalk. I used the picture that was provided and found a duck in it. I made it by using Paint.
Today’s daily create was to take a selfie and then use a filter you’ve never used. I edited the picture using Photoshop and used a weird yellow color filter. I’m not quite sure why people would use this filter but maybe they’re just feeling really yellow.
Today’s daily create was to write a 6 line poem about the meaning of life. I don’t really know what the true meaning of life is. I just live to the fullest of my ability everyday and try to do good for others, educate myself, and make the world a better place. So for my poem I decided to talk about the scientific purpose of life which is to reproduce and pass on your genes to offsprings.
Today’s daily create was to tweet a photo of water under a bridge. I thought this cartoon represented the song somewhat well.
Today’s daily create was to create a grook. Apparently that’s a real thing. Wikepedia defines a grook as
The grooks are characterized by irony, paradox, brevity, precise use of language, sophisticated rhythms and rhymes, and an often satiric nature.
My grook isn’t quite satirical. I kinda struggled with the concept of a grook but this was my best try after looking at some other examples.
Finally a video daily create! I’ve been pushing off finishing my daily creates trying to wait for a video one and what better time then for my last daily create of the week!
That’s what I wrote before I watched the video and then understood the assignment. Which was to create a picture using words. I decided to make the word fish into a fish. /i did this using Paint. I then decided to add bubbles and then felt like the picture was lacking so I added different words, splash, current, and wave, to the background. I added the word climate change in red in order to kind of give the project a message or a meaning.
Today’s daily create was to create a pareidolia. A pareidolia is a picture that looks like something but is actually something else. At first I thought to use the vase that looks like two people’s faces. I had to do an art project on that picture in middle school, but then I decided to look up some examples of pareidoloia. I absolutely love this picture at first glance it appears to be someones eye, but then you begin to wonder about the bubbles and that’s when it clicks that it’s a sink not an eye. The main component of the picture is the sink drain and that is why one doesn’t notice the bubbles first glance. The drain dominates the photo and gives the appeal that it is an eye rather than a drain.
Today’s daily create was to complete a short story adding on to:
I decided to write about Titanic because that was the only story I can think of with a necklace and I wanted to relate it to a known story.
Today’s daily create was to tweet a picture of what you will miss most about summer. I made a collage of four different pictures and then added summer themed stickers to it. I used a picture I took at sunset while at a beach house, a concert photo, a photo while hiking, and a picture while paddle boarding. These are the main things I’m going to miss about summer. I decided that instead of doing a classic collage I would spice it up by adding a background of flowers and stickers. I made this using an app called PicCollage.
Today’s daily create was to look for cool designs. I decided to search them online because I’m not out and decided this was a creative design with a powerful message. I knew I wanted to do an environmental message because I think most of the advertisements with environmental messages are very powerful and I thought this was a good way to spread the idea. I found the ad on a website that had a bunch f other environmental ads on it.
Today’s daily create was to create a drawing of your mood. I decided to use Paint and do an abstract “painting” of how I’m feeling. I’m in a very fall mood and it’s fall break, however, I’m very sick and a little overwhelmed as I look at all the homework I have to complete before Wednesday! So I used mostly fall color and just painted how I felt on to the computed screen.
Today’s daily create was to write a poem using a word from a poem. I used the word forest from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem entitled Evangeline: A Tale Of Acadile. I used this poem to talk about deforestation and anthropological causes.
TDC 1359- Combine your favorite logos
Today’s daily create was to combine two logos. I combined Coke-Cola and Nike. This combination showed the disastrous outcome of combining two logos that don’t go together. In order to make this I used Paint and combined the two logos and then cut out the red piece and paste them in the spot when the white from the Nike logo covered up the red line in the Coke-Cola logo. Then I colored in the rest.
TDC 1360 Draw something you bought today
I actually just realized you had to draw something you bought today for today’s daily create, but in that case I drew nothing because I bought nothing because I am a broke college student who is too busy to be buying things she can’t afford.
TDC 1361 Upside Down Day
Today’s daily create was to take a picture of something that would look cool upside down. I had a really hard time thinking of a subject to use for this assignment. And then I thought of those pranks where the water cups is upside down on a table. So I did that on our kitchen table and I put ice in it so the water was more dominant in the cup, then I placed a place-mat on the top of the cup so when I flipped the picture upside down it would be more complicated. This gave the picture more layers and made it more complicated when looking at it upside down.
TDC 1363 What can you see through the window?
Today’s daily create was to create what you see out your window. Since it’s raining and drowsy outside and there’s a hurricane on the way. I decided to exaggerate the amount of water we are getting. My suitemate has been freaking out about the hurricane coming, even though it’s probably going to miss us, and has stocked up on food, water, and supplies. So I decided to do the daily create based on what she sees out of our window even though it’s really only drizzling outside right now.
TDC 1352- Print all over
Today’s daily create was to take a photo of yourself and put icons all over it. I used Snapchat because I was familiar with it. I tried to think of something witty and creative such as their example of “ants in your pants” but I came up shorthanded. So I decided to promote recycling!
This photo to me was a way to promote recycling and show my environmental side. I’m always yelling at the other people in my apartment to recycle things and not to put the wrong things in the recycle bin.
I likes how there was so many recycling icons that they start looking like something else. The shadow i n the recycling look make the different color look very prominent when there are so many.
TDC 1354- Latte Art
Today’s daily create was to create latte art. A new fad, using the foam in a latte to make a picture, such as a flower or feather.
I thought this was a very neat assignment, however I was wary about my ability to use a photo editing device in this way. I first downloaded a latte picture and a picture of Channing Tatum. I used paint, because at the time that’s all I had, but I intent to start using Photoshop, for it’s higher quality. I cut out Channing’s face and then pasted it on the latte. I first had to make it smaller. Then, the photo I cut became a square and had a white area around his face. So I used different paint brushes and spray cans to cover up the white and then blend his face into the latte a little better. I used a color picker to take the colors that were already in the picture and add those to my table of colors so I can more exact and realistic colors. I think that Photoshop would have had a better way to do this, but I am still happy with the way that my project turned out.
I chose Channing Tatum because he’s hot and lattes are hot so I thought they went together well. A friend just asked me to see Magic Mike XL at cheap seats so maybe that was why I chose him too.
TDC 1357 Artsy or Not?
Today’s daily create was to put an Instagram photo into another picture. I looked through my photos on Instagram for one that had a background that I could replicate or look up on Google. I found one from the Beach exhibit at the Nation Building Museum in DC and used that one. I used the cut and paste tool in paint. I also found out that using the resize button in paint is a lot easier because it keeps the proportion the same and it does not become fuzzy when you make in smaller.
TDC 1358 Design your Own Road Sign
The last daily create I did was to create your own road sign. I decided to create one for the future, when we have hovercrafts and we will have to really watch out for birds because we will be up in the air. I created this using the shape, fill in, and the pencil tool in Paint.
Today’s daily create was to create a concrete poem. The first image that popped into my head was a tree, so I wrote about a tree. I’m not good at poetry so I just tried to make every other word rhyme. I also made the words colored to correlate with a tree.
Today’s daily create was to wish Jim bon voyage! Well Jim I hope you find this daily create less awkward then I found the one dedicated to me! The daily create was to make a video with puppets wishing Jim good luck in Italy. I made a puppet out of paper and then colored it and then made different accessories. I then recorded each segment separately and then combined them together in an IPhone app. And wahlaa a farewell to Jim!
Today’s daily create was to create an emophoto. An emophoto is a picture that shows emotion. I knew immediately that I wanted to post a volleyball photo that was captured moments after we won the game that would take us to states.
Today’s daily create was to create a cover for a help/ how to book, but it was suppose to be really bad. Mine kinda sucked and was not creative, once I saw the rest of them.
Today’s daily create was to create your utopia on top of a mountain. The only thing mine is missing is an ice cream mountain in the background!
