Week 11 and 12 daily creates

TDC 1394

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.

TDC 1395

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.

TDC 1403

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.

Week 7 & 8 Daily Creates

TDC 1366

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:

tdc story

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.

TDC 1369

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.

TDC 1370

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.

TDC 1373

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.

TDC 1374

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.

Week 5 Daily Creates

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.

TDC 1349 Wish Jim Bon Voyage

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!

#tdc1340 Collaborative Poetry on Twitter

I’m not a poetry fan so today’s daily create wasn’t really my style. However, since this week is so hectic I decided to do it. I did think that this was a really cool assignment. The power that technology has is so astonishing to me. The fact that all these people can come together to write a collaborative poem is so cool. I also saw this while starting my “Tell a story in 5 frames” assignment. It has the same concept of a group of people coming together to create, share, and inspire others.
