I am happy to say that this week has been a much more enjoyable (and less stressful) week!
To start off the summary of this week, I’ll go over my Daily Creates which are always fun. My first one was about a creative roadblock. It’s simple and just a play on the word, but I enjoyed the chuckle. The second was probably my favorite. I love all types of art, but I’ve loved Salvador Dali’s work since I was in 7th grade. I would say his artwork is what got me into art. Lastly, I worked on a movie title in emojis. I chose Princess Bride because I love that movie and the emojis are super cute.
Up next we have remixes! For the first one, I had to create a missing person poster, but add an unusual character to it. I chose Shaggy from Scooby Doo. I was feeling nostalgic and besides, he’s definitely an unusual character. AND I ended up finding an image of Shaggy with a groovy background which made it way more in theme.
The second remix I had to take a close up picture of something, but I then had to critique that picture as if I were an uptight art critic. I didn’t like this one as much. I don’t like critiquing art. To me, art can be anything. It can be made up of trash, it can be made up of paint or clay. It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t even have to mean anything. Anyone can create art and art can by anything we want.
I felt really silly doing my first mash-up, but it was pretty fun. I had to create a story through text messaging and had my friend Jamie help me out. The only downside was that it was a pretty short story just because getting Jamie’s responses took longer than I had hoped.
I kind of went to town on the second mash-up. For this one, I had to tell the growth of a character. I grew up watching FRIENDS and ended up really looking up to Rachel. She started off a completely different character to how she ended. She was a fierce woman who was hardworking and a great mother. I definitely did this assignment to the best of my ability.
For my tutorial, I wanted to create one for Audacity. I had so much trouble with it in the beginning, and now I’m very confident in my abilities with it. It’s crazy how that can happen. Practice really does make perfect!
