In the Mind of McNulty-From The Wire

For this particular assignment, I choose to do the character McNulty from The Wire. I used photoshop to accomplish this task as well as a host of other tools found inside of the software. This was a learning process and I think I am happy with the end result.

“What’s Inside of You?”

I had fun with this assignment, however, I found myself regretting the program I used to create it as I tried to save it in a format that would allow me to open it in this post. I used Microsoft Powerpoint to create my poster detailing what’s “inside of me”.…

Getting Started First thing I suggest doing is open up your favorite word processor program and type “What’s in Me?” This is the fundamental question for this assignment Now we need to come up with 5+ words which represent us, these will usually be nouns or adjectives. Think about extracurricular activities you are involved in (Music, Sports, Art), Courses you Enjoy (Math, Science, History), … Continue reading
