This semester has been very fun! Its has been years since I had a class that was not test heavy and pro-creative. The last class I think I had that is like this was probably art class in high school. BUT even in that class I had research papers and test for it. The way this class was instructed was so perfect for me. Every time I came to class, I felt a sigh of relief because Ryan. Ryan was overall one of the coolest professors I ever had at York. Hats off to him.
Throughout this semester, I learned a lot of interesting topics. My favorite topics was learning how to use Photoshop and learning how to make GIFs. These two were my favorite because I have never knew how to use them. All the information I have learned is beneficial to me because I will use it in my everyday life. I can finally make GIFs by myself!!!
Now is the part where we talk about grades…
For this course, I strongly believe I deserve an A+.
All jokes aside, I really put in a lot of effort in this class. I have also never missed a single day for this class. I came everyday and did my work. Speaking of work, I did all my assignments along with the optional ones on time. I put a lot of effort into my assignments. I also commented on a bunch of peoples work. I know it might be a stretch to ask for an A+, but I have never got one and I thought it would be cool to finally get one in my last year of college and I worked hard for it this class.
My favorite assignments was the Photoshop Battle Remix, Zine project and the optional assignment, Propaganda Posters Remix. Most of these assignments required Photoshop to use and I was not that good at it. I had to learn some basics before attempting these projects. The best video I saw was this one below
In the Photoshop Battle Remix project, which you can find here, I had the best time surfing the Reddit Photoshop Battle. I find myself surfing there more often now. I will show you my favorite creation in this project. I spent a long time making this because I had to remove the old lady Liberty and make the background the same color. I also had to make the lady green and put the lamp in her hand. I hope you guys like this.
In the Zine project, which you can find here, I enjoyed the concept of it. I really enjoyed looking for images that inspire me. Out of all 3 of the images I created, the one below is my most favorite one. It really shows technology that inspire me personally. I love space and felt the technology I selected inspire creativity and exploration. I hope you guys like my creation.
The last project I had fun time creating was the Propaganda poster remix. There was a lot of interesting Propaganda posters online. My favorite image that I remixed was the one below.
Overall, I liked the creativity part of this course. I also liked how we post our assignments on our own blog website. I have never created a blog website before and now I see why people create their owns. For this website, I plan to move all my information into a sub domain of my other website, Rixardo.com. My other website is for my other class CT360. I want all my information to be located on one website instead of two. I hope you guys follow me there. Besides that, I had fun in this course. It was very motivating and inspiring. Thank you!
