First Post! Wait, school stuff!? Doom does not approve!

Hey everyone! First blog! Exciting, huh? Anyway I wanted to update you guys on a project I am working on for my Typography class this semester. I added the class a week after classes started, and so I am a little behind. The project is to take a word and, you know what? I can explain this better by just showing you.

I realize the ‘a’ is backwards now that I am looking at the picture. That is, well, embarrassing. I was really anxious about this project because I had to cut out the letters on a adhesive piece of paper. I didn’t realize what I had done. Sorry!!

Now that my face is beet red from embarrassment I can continue and try to salvage my dignity. We were supposed to pick a word, mine which was ‘classy’ and put it in an environment that represented the word. Now I don’t know about you, but Darth Vader, Doctor Victor Von Doom, and Kylo Ren are some of the classiest non-existent gents I know! Especially in cup form! I put them on a wooden surface mainly because of the timing and the fact that my parents brought those cups up for me just a few minutes prior to taking the picture. I was borrowing their camera and I thought, “What better place to have these super villains pose but the back of my parents truck on a slate of wood?” As weird as that sounds I feel it explains the characters classiness very well. They look good anywhere. That’s is the essence of the photo. It doesn’t matter where you are, who you are, or what you are, you can look good and feel good about yourself anywhere! Well, that is all for this post; see you all tomorrow!

  2. From the looks of the rest of your blog, this fits you perfectly. The image is great and does have a high amount of contrast. However, craft is slightly lacking with your lettering. It is totally understandable to not be good with a exacto-knife (I am definitely terrible.), but try using scissors next time it takes more thought but they are much easier to maneuver. This would have allowed you to keep the same font size and scale of everyone else in the class. Your could also retake the picture and turn the “a” around because they seem unattached from the table itself. Doing this and then adhering them to the surface would give your photograph a more pulled in and finished look. Great work so far!

      Thanks for the critique! I really appreciate it, and I agree. I was very anxious with the exacto-knife so I never even thought about using scissor. It really embarrassed me that the “a” was backwards too. I guess it was my anxiety.
