My Mentor

So I was on a mission to find a mentor, and I was pretty much just asking random people. Well, that is the way I interpreted it as. So, I just remembered for the past two Otakon Conventions I was on the Con Coverage team. So I asked the person who was in charge of us. She has also given me some things to think about when coming up with my final video project and making a story for my cinematography class. So I feel it is a done deal.

Greeting Cards

For my assignment m goal was to create a greeting card. When I first approached this I was doing multiple cards with different meanings. For example, I would have one birthday card, one holiday card, and one thinking of you card. So I came up with thinking of you cards.

My final one was the bunny and the umbrella. After that I animated it to an e-greeting card. This is the final result

Redskins New Name?

So I have read several articles on the issue of the team name Redskins. So what exactly is a Redskin? Well according to Wikipedia "Redskin" is a racial descriptor for Native Americans and one of the color metaphors for race used in North America and Europe since European colonization of America. So how do I feel on this issue? I think that it can go both ways. It has been around for ever and I haven't heard about many people speaking up about it. So I actually have no feelings on this one. I am trying to look at it from both ways but I just don't see it. I guess that I do not feel bad about it because I had always thought of the term "Redskin" as a team name and not a racial term. I am not a horrible person because I do not feel bad I just don't care.

The assignment is to redo the team Redskin's name and mascot. So I went through generators to cheat but then I thought about it. What represents Maryland? We have Orioles, Ravens, Capitals, Wizards... I wanted to use a bird like a native bird to the state but there are so many. Goshowks sounded cool but at the same time it could be misinterpreted as the Philly Eagles. So I stayed away from birds. With the power of Google I found a Hellbender. Sounds cool, don't it? A Hellbender is large salamander or a reckless/ head strong  person. I am not bashing any social groups, or races. That is why my mother raised us on animals instead of Barbie... but that is another story. Without futher ado my Redskin Design.

Typography Self Portrait

In one of my classes I had to make my face with type. It was a unique process of thinking, because it gave me so much freedom. I am going to have to mount this eventually...
