For this assignment which is 2 stars, I created an amber alert poster for A1 Dr. Oblivion on adobe photoshop. Everybody needs to help search for him! He is such an asset to the DS106 crew, and it’s been a rough few weeks without him taking care of us!

Lost: Dr. Oblivion

Original assignment (2 Stars)

I’m not sure who Dr. Oblivion is. However, this assignment was simple. Create a poster for the lost doctor.

I used the programs FotoFlexer, Microsoft Word, and SnippIt to create this poster.

I obtained a photo of Dr. Oblivion and uploaded it to the website …

Missing Persons Poster

I did a little deviating from the original assignment, which can be found here.

This could be like a deleted scene of when the H-BOMB hits and Henry is search for his wife but retracts his search because he remembers how miserable she made him.

Missing Dr. Oblivion Poster

Without using photoshop (intend on getting it working sono) I’m not sure of a better way to select certain things out of images other than this sloppy erasing out of normal pics using GIMP.

Dr Brian Oblivion in the newspaper

I got in to work early this morning, checked the morning newspaper and discovered that David Cromenbird had indeed been true to his word.

Visual Assignment II — Redux

At the behest of Jim Groom, I have revamped the poster I created.  Using Old London – Alternate Font, I gave the new poster a medieval feeling, though my original goal was to mimic the Final Fantasy XII mark board postings.  I feel very good about this version…

The Doctor is Missing!

Apparently the ds106 course has taken a turn for the worse! Not only is our beloved mentor and instructor missing, but we’ve all become part of an insidious role playing plot, forcing the ds106 participants to reveal ourselves for the nerds we really are! In case you’re wondering, I’m having…
