A Place I’ve Never Been

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

 

A place I’ve never been: The Taj Mahal; or India for that matter. I took inspiration from the Istanbul submission. It’s very simple, just black and white, which shows high contrast.

The Palace, or mausoleum, is probably the most signifying feature of India, so it was a no-brainer to use.

Wait, Where’d They Come From?

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

Here’s my picture for the “Wait, where’d that guy come from?” I wanted to do it a little differently, maybe lack of creativity. So I decided to put the faces the” fantasy Trinity”(George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson) into one shot, maybe battling it out for the prize of “top fantasy/sci-fi film director.” In any case here it is.

GIMP layers, masking layers and cloning are becoming more and more easy to use. I think this is a decent job of what I wanted to do.

 

If Movie Posters Told The Truth

From Apollo 18

I…hate…this…movie… Actually the best part was the soundtrack, which only featured two songs: And You and I, by Yes; and Wond’ring Aloud, by Jethro Tull. Apart from that, complete an utter garbage. So in an attempt to warn future prospective audiences…Don’t waste your time.

1 Movie / 4 Icons

Friday, February 17th, 2012

 

I got the icons from The Noun Project. They’re pretty simple, not the exact ones I wanted but I this makes it more difficult.

The film might be difficult enough to guess but I’ll give you a hint: it’s a Sci-Fi classic. A monmental film that changed the way all films, of this scale or close, was made. Also had a profound impact on a certain government agency. Good Luck

Alternate Book Cover

Friday, February 17th, 2012

 

1984 is a book by George Orwell that depicts a distopian future where wars are made up an citizens are kept under strict control. Big Brother is an idea in the book used to keep people under supervision and prohibit them from expressing themselves in any other way than what the government would want. The Big Brother  figure is foreboding and angry looking which would reveal the type of atmosphere surrounding the book. I decided to flip that on its head and depict a kind looking, smiling, Big Brother, keeping the tagline, “Big Brother is Watching You.” 1984 now is not a book about authoritarian government and thought police but perhaps a book about a good older brother that takes care of his siblings.
