  • Index Card Flip Book?


    I was walking down my normal path to class when I noticed a strange floating block. This suspended cube had a question mark on each side of it. Using my knowledge of video games, I instinctively walked below it and jumped. As my head came into contact with the cube, it squished slightly like a…

  • Always Losing My Glasses


    Don’t you hate it when you can’t find the thing you are looking for? Now imagine you have bad eyesight and have lost the only thing you can use to see. Like Velma from Scooby-Doo, this happens to me far more often than I would like. Unlike Velma, at least I don’t have monsters and…

  • Get Motivated with this Poster


    Moods are often associated with different types of weather, such as sunny to happy or rainy to sad. When clouds cover the whole sky it brings down people’s moods.

  • Bunny in the Bog


    Super Adventure Dog Bunny the Pomeranian set out for an adventure. Freedom felt great, as she pranced along in any direction she desired. Soon, however, she found herself in new and very unfamiliar surroundings. Gone was the house and neatly trimmed grass of the yard. Here she was deep inside a boggy forest. Hot and…

  • Design Blitz Extraordinaire


    I undertook a design blitz, with which I looked outside and inside for images that demonstrated different design concepts. As you will see below are four photos I selected, each of which represent a design concept. This photo above is a Siberian Iris that was blooming in my front yard. The colors of the petals…

  • Week 1 Full Summary

    Wow, what a busy first week in Digital Storytelling. After the “boot camp” (the first part of week), the final week 1 assignments focused on visual design. I’m proud of the amount that I’ve learned and completed so far. Visual design isn’t my strong suit, but I pulled through and learned a lot in the…
