spubble

Learn to love yourself, grab a picture of yourself in which your body language, actions, gestures, etc. suggest one thing and then play off that using a speech bubble. Ideally the result would make people laugh---but I must acknowledge there are other possible emotional responses that may be just as acceptable. Think of it as lolcat, save it's a human (namely you) and there is nothing compelling anyone to abuse the letter z in the speech bubble text. Picnik.com or Aviary.com would make this assignment dead simple.

Decided to Not be Dark for Once

I started off thinking I would take a darker take on this Digital Storytelling class assignment, a visual assignment called the “Make Your Own Spubble”. I took an old photo of myself, taken by my friend Dil a couple years ago (during which she had an obsession with …

Spubble Me

This was a fun one. I took a picture that I’ve had of myself since I was a teenager (I’m 24 now), I took a trip to Disneyworld when I was 15, and celebrated my 16th birthday on a Disney cruise with my (then) best friend, and our moms. I …

Hawkeye…My Superhero

Hawkeye is my favorite person (dog) to spend time with. He is my 5.5 year old Treeing Walker Hound. He weighs a hefty 65lbs, and as you can see from the collage, he LOVES to sleep. This is my second visual assignment of the week, and I’m feeling really stressed …

Can You See What I See?

Well, this was an interesting visual assignment. With the requirement being, take an eye (this is my eye), and overlay something into it like a reflection, as well as no background in photo editing, I think I did a fairly decent job. I got my eye on some pizza, and …

Assignment: Your Very Own Spubble

This assignment was quite the comedic task because it made me have to think of a good caption to write. Why the caption and pose next to a stool, you ask? I picked: “where did the couch go?” because I’m currently at my boyfriend’s …

Spubble

For my Spubble Assignment I chose to use a photo from the Running of the Bulls in Spain. The picture captures my reaction as well as the reaction of two Spanish children as we notice something happening on the streets. To be honest, I don’t remember exactly what we were …

Me + Minnie Mouse Ears + Disney World = Little Kid Again

This past November my family decided to do a trip to Disney World, and let me tell you I have never had so much fun. I’ve been to Disney World about 3 or 4 times, but I’ve always been younger. I would definitely say this past trip there was the …

Happiness Guaranteed TV

If you love HGTV (Home and Garden Television), please raise your hands.

Apparently, we’re not alone. Look! Here’s proof.

Even though I’ve completed my fair share of HGTV marathons (and will never stop so help me), I’ll be the first to admit that it’s pure mind-numbing crap. Let’s be …

Social Media Is NOT My Thing…

Sea Bass, His Spubble, and a Slight Bit of Stubble.

I know Janelle’s Sebastian Crane isn’t really looking for a lady right now, so the inspiration for this simple 2-star assignment seems to stem from Seb’s younger years, when he was more of a rambunctious rebel, a worry-free wanderer, a carefree cool cat… I don’t know if I prefer him …

Finally..my turn!

For my Digital Media class we are supposed to do some “assignments” for this website DS 106. They actually look pretty entertaining and interesting, hence the quotation marks around the word “assignments.” I will admit to being pretty over-extended recently so I chose a simple one for my first entry. My technical skills seem limited […]
