Geuss this movie

Assignment:” The assignment is to reduce a movie, story, or event into its basic elements, then take those visuals and reduce them further to simple icons, four of them. Write your blog post up but do not give away the answer, let people guess! The challenge is to find the icons that suggest the story, but do not make it so easy.”

The process: I took a few images from Microsoft word and copied it to paint. I used paint to make the whole assignment. The Jordan Jumpman logo came from wikipedia. Everything was copied and pasted on paint, so nothing too fancy, just very simplistic.


According to the assignment, I am unable to reveal the title of this movie. All I can say is that this movie was the highlight of my childhood. If a hint is needed, then please refer to the image below. I’d write more about this assignment buy I would’nt want to give the tittle of the movie away.

ds106 propaganda


The assignment was to Create a propaganda poster for ds106. Use your photo editing software of choice and write a message to inspire your fellow ds106ers.


I took one of my old photos that I had recreated on illustrator and placed it into photo shop. The photo I recreated is a painting of uncle Sam. I then created a layer to add a thick dark border. the last layer was used for the text.


The story behind this assignment is simple. I created this photo not to fill the requirements of ds106’s needed, but to remind me to do more assignments. The best propaganda posters are the posters used to inspire ourselves first, and others second. So I created this to use as a wallpaper to remind me to do more work.

Go pikachu…. I mean Vannever Bush.

Assignment: Create your own Pokemone card using a pioneer.

Process: I uploaded a prime card into photo shop. I then erased all the characters aspects. I continued to create multiple layers to add the photos and the text.

Story: Vannever Bush’s Hp is 80 because he lived to be 84 years of age. He evolved from MIT because he graduated there. His first attack is a refrenece to the power of the atomic bomb. His second attack is based off of memex. If you take a closer look on the top-right corner, you will see a small image of magneto. That image is there because i believe they look alike, and it has no particualr refrence to anything relevant on the matter of this pioneer.

The Elite 8

Assignment: Create a Minimalist travel poster based on a movie using the pioneers.

Process: I used photoshop to create this. I used a total of 20 layers in photoshop to complete this project. the first ten layers were used to upload each and every individual picture. i then cropped and erase the pictures to allow them to fit. the next ten layers were used to create the words using text. nothing fancy, just time consuming.

Story: The inspiration that lead me to create the elite 8, was from my indescision to pick a single pioneer. so i decided to use all the pioneers and our professor (mainly cause he asked me if he could be in the project.)
