This was a very busy week. There was a great deal to learn and ample opportunity to push myself way out of my comfort zone. My posts this week consisted of: Reflection on the Vignelli Canon: http://salukizim.com/weekly-summary/reflection-on-the-vignelli-canon/ DesignBlitz: http://salukizim.com/pictures/design-blitz-challenge/ Daily Creates: https://twitter.com/GeorgeWZimmerm2/status/869720013518798848 https://twitter.com/GeorgeWZimmerm2/status/870050371519086595 https://twitter.com/GeorgeWZimmerm2/status/870707736006115328…
This was challenging! Thank goodness for the tutorials. I ended up purchasing Adobe Photoshop to make this first animated GIF. For my subject I recently received a video from a friend of a crazy cockatoo that loves to dance to Elvis tunes. I picked about 7 seconds of video from the 3 minute video I received. This is one happy bird.
Last year I took a business trip to Cairo, Egypt. The day I was leaving my host insisted on taking me to the Pyramids for one quick photo to help prove that I had been there. I particularly like this photo. It was actually a frigid day and the wind was howling. The good news was that all of the pollution had blown away and the pyramids actually looked good.
Creating an emoji or avatar of myself was fun. I found an app for my iPad that allowed me to take a picture of myself and then using the facial information go thru a menu of matches to build a pretty decent “cartoon” likeness of myself.
