For the assignment idea, I came up with creating a hybrid animal. It does not have to be only animals, it can be combination of animals or plants, or both.
After finish it, upload it to Flicker.
I made new logo for JBrown’s Law Agency. I was inspired by the assignment called Design to Shock (4 points). To create this logo, I used 3 pictures combined by using Adobe Photoshop and put some text on to it.
Since John is lawyer, he loves the quote that would make clients to trust him 100%. As he search for quotes that have strong meaning, he found this quote, “good lawyers know the law; great layers know the judge” and he thinks that it would fit with the images of the gavel and balance scale. The point of putting foggy effect on to two pictures is that he would clear the fogginess, which represents false charge. In other words, the propose of creating this logo was to show that he would find the way to get out of the problem.
This assignment was to take any photo of find any object and take a picture of it and create augmented versions of photos with my imagination. I was about to practice clarinet, so I just took a picture of clarinet and thought about what this can be. Most of my thoughts were came from the shape of the clarinet. The first thing came up in my mind was a space rocket. As you know the shape of two objects look similar so I pasted clarinet on the space as background and put the fire underneath so it looks like it’s about to take off from the ground.
Next picture is that clarinet functioning as the knife that is used to play fencing. I was impressed with the fencing games those were held during Olympics. So I immediately could thought of the clarinet as the fencing equipment.
It kind of seems like a person who is holding a clarinet is trying to make a competitor to play instead of attacking him..
Third imagination was clarinet roles as a funnel. The shape of bottom part of the clarinet is same as a funnel. It has big opening and smaller opening at the opposite side. So when you pour liquid into any bottle, it would make you not to spill all over the place.
This assignment took long time to came up with three ideas and make three pictures. But I had really fun time to think differently. When you think little odd way, your imagination can be fun and something really funny stuffs can be came up from you!

This visual assignment was must do assignment. So I looked around my room and found this pouch in my school backpack. I always carry this around with me. Let’s look at closely what I have in this flower pattern pouch.
First, I have a pen and a notebook. Just in case, I might need to write down something important like assignments that professors give out or due day.
Right next to notebook, you can see the yellow box. It’s band-aid. I get paper cut easily so I bring with me. Sometimes I see people who need it, so I just take it out from my pouch.
The pink object is toothbrush cap. I do not know why it’s in there but I think I put it in when I went on trip during winter break after the trip, I did not take it out from the pouch.
As you can see, rest of the objects are make-up things. Since it is winter, my lips dry up quickly. I put immediately on my lips so it does not dry out and see blood on it. As same reason, I bring handcream with me so I can put it on.
It was good time for me to take out some stuffs and clean my pouch. It was kind of heavy for me to carry, and now it’s lighter than before.
What’s in your bag?
The goal of this assignment was to creat a picture with 4 lines, 5 dots and 1 curve. It was hard for me to think of any object that can be drawn with provided information. So I made my mind to draw the first thing I saw when I look around. It was a mug cup with straw in it. The straw needed only 2 lines and 1 dot. I used rest of them to draw a cup. I used 1 big dots to represent the top part of the cup and 2 dots to draw handle on it and 1 curve at the bottom to connet 2 lines in the cup to finish the shape. I drew I dot on the middle of the cup for decoration.
It was really easy and fun assignment but it required some creativity.
4 Lines, 5 Dots, 1 Curve(3 and 1/2 points)
The most of the pictures in my phone are the pictures those were taken from the trip in Florida. Among those pictures, it was taken when I was in the airplane on a way back to Virginia. As I looked through the pictures, I immediately thought of Wright Brothers because they were the first airplane inventor.
I cut this image and pasted to the sky view of Miami (below). I did not know any photoshop website or did not download it so I utilized drawing board that was already exist in computer. I pasted them on the bottom of the background, but the up side was kind of seem empty. So I pasted the plane (right) that was invented by Wright Brothers.
