Digital imaging class, part II

And these are the Illustrator assignments.

"Expressive words."

 Creating a simple repeating pattern.  I didn't like how the first set of "spheres" looked when right up against each other, so I did the second one as a compromise.

A set of stamps commemorating something.  I did not invent the flag; it's the actual one used in Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century.

Two versions of a PSA on the same topic.  I had a classroom/office poster in mind, which is why there's so much text.  It should've been a bit lighter if it were to be made into a billboard or something.

Not making this up - the day I chose the topic, a friend of mine from high school contracted food poisoning from eating at a Philly restaurant.  (She's okay now.)

Digital imaging class, part I

Just finished a course at Bucks County Community College last week learning to use Photoshop and Illustrator.  Here's the Photoshop assignments:

An "about me" page introducing ourselves to classmates.

Pick a color and go off on how it might be used and its connotations.

Eliminating phone wires and weeds on the ground in front of the Mummers Museum in Philadelphia.

Rejuvenation through the magic of computers.  I think too much airbrushing makes skin look like plastic.
