A famous guitar player appears in an image using a guitar that is belongs to another famous guitar player (bonus points for embedding audio from a riff by yet another famous guitar player. This is a relatively simple project that will help improve superimposing mixed images in Photoshop (or any other image editor with layers). It is similar to the Troll Quotes assignment in that it involves bringing together disparate elements into one place and asks readers to figure who's who and what's whose. The technique used is similar to that described in this tutorial on changing faces on a movie poster (http://pinkzap.com/tutorial/how-to-replace-faces-on-movie-posters/). The new image will consist of a famous guitar playing or holding the guitar of another famous guitar player. My TA went added an additional feature to the assignment by embedding an mp3 clip of a riff by yet another famous guitar player.
