    My First Book

    For this assignment, I did quite a bite of planning before putting it all together. I looked through many different types of pictures to put on the cover. I finally made up my mind with this one; I loved the way it outlined a natural woman’s body. Then I found a blank book through Google image. I used Photoshop to put it all together. First, I used the Lasso Tool to cut out the body. I wanted to have the a curvy edge around woman’s body. Then using the Text Tool, I wrote the title of the book. So without further ado, I introduce my first book!

    My Motivation

    For this assignment, I used Photoshop throughout the entire process. I started by looking for motivating picture through Google. Once I found one I was happy with, I edited the lighting in the background picture. I then used the Text Tool to write the poster. It seemed unfinished, so I added the vertical bar at the end of the words. I actually really love the way this poster looks!

    All the Information

    I realized through this assignment that I need to work more on my character and developing who she is. I started by reviewing all of my information that I have written about Kira Villiani and collected her keywords. Using Word Clouds, I went through quite a few different designs. I even tried to get the words to make a K, but it did not work. I then chose the color scheme and the background format. To be honest, I am not super happy with the way it turned out.

    What’s in a name?

    For this assignment, I chose to use my character’s name to create her logo. Using Cool Letters, I started the by looking through all the background options. There were a few that I was torn between but ended up going with beautiful one. I then went through the font styles and decided on a pirate looking one; I thought the contrast went really well with the background. Once I had completed these last few steps, I went through the color options for the lettering, the shadowing and the width of the bordering for the name. Then I was finished! I really love the way it turned out!

    Stories through the lens

    My journey through photography I love taking pictures! I love telling stories through them! But I do not have much experience with photography. I use my phone and my Polaroid camera to capture moments. Mainly of people, nature and animals. Recently I have been thinking that I wish I took more pictures with me in them. I have tons of pictures of others in the moment, but barely any with me in the moment. That is something I will work on remembering. Each element of an image tells a story. It could be as simple as an ants journey to the success of a hiker climbing Mt. Everest. Images shows…

    Lousy Job

    Kira Villiani had been watching him for days. Following his every move. Studying his interactions. Memorizing his schedule. She was bored. He was not an interesting man. Just a lousy professor as a lousy university. Why had she even taken the job? It wasn’t like she got to kill, fight or torture anyone. But finally the night had come. It was time. Kira waited for him to leave his office so make the move. Dressed as a lousy college student, she blended in perfectly. This was so easy. Just walking right into the building, through the main entrance, down the hall, up the stairs and… right into the department. Perfect!…

    The Martino Bunch

    This visual assignment was a ton of fun! I grew up watching the Brady Bunch and when I saw this as an option, I just could not pass it up! This is not even my entire family! Not all of my siblings wanted to be apart.. so silly! And if you add in my missing siblings and spouses we total thirteen. Plus the dogs make it a total of sixteen! I used befunky again to create this collage. It is quite a useful site! Some of these pictures are ones I have taken in the past, and some are ones I took this week.

    Little Rosie Gallery

    This is my little snuggle muffin! <3 She is the sweetest baby! But also a stinker. She likes chew on the baseboards and go through the trash. But she also loves to dance with you and play ball! For the assignment I practiced using different settings on my iPhone 8+. I absolutely LOVE the portrait mode! For the collage, I used befunky collage maker and chose one of their present layouts. There is quite a lot you can do with this site, but you have to pay for all the perks.. which I did not do.
