Initially, for my high school's Art Club, we were going to create an entire zombie short film. I wrote up a script and everything. We never got around to a full length feature, but we did get out to make this test movie, working on makeup, moviement, and fighting.

Concept Art

| No Comments

I enjoy looking at concept art, an aspect of art that relates more to animation and movies. However, it still pertains to parts of iMedia such as video games. Seeing the characters, landscapes, and story morph and transform throughout the process of the art is fastinating to me.

Like the haircut song. Only with hedgehogs. And Christmas songs.

Gap Monsters

So this would totally be embedded if I could figure out how to get that to work. Anyway, this is one of my favorite online games. I enjoy the simple concept and, yet, the perplexing difficulty of it.

Okami

| No Comments

As far as interactive media goes, this is one of my all time favorites, the videogame Okami. I absolutely adore the Japanese painted style, and I would love to create something this unique and beautiful. I also love that one of your powers in the game is the ability to paint--you can fix things (bridges, for example), you can make bombs, cut down trees or rocks or enemies, and many other things. It also has beautiful music and well designed environments and characters.

Letterboxing

| No Comments

Letterboxing is like geocashing, except with stamps.

This summer my friends and I carved out stamps. After finding directions for letterboxes by Enger Tower, we traveled up there and started looking around. We found the first box, and, within it, there was a stamp and a notebook. We stamped our stamps in the found notebook, and stamped the found stamp in our notebooks.

This is the main website that contains the locations of many of the boxes.

One of my mother's teacher friends showed her this. It's funny, but it's also quite striking and true.
