Winifred in a Cloud

This is the word cloud that I created to describe my character, Winifred Hart! I used colors that went well together (purple, blue, and green are next to each other on the color wheel), and picked a shape that would separate the words, but clearly become one larger image. This represents how all of these […]

Lost Hat

Information can be found on the poster! Please help find and return this hat. I found two things difficult about this assignment: creating a background image and determining the “last seen.” For the background, I ended up using a free Canva background that looked like lined paper. I then added a filter to make it […]

California Book Cover

The book cover I created for California is not too different from the original, but I think it tells a lot more about the plot than the forest that the real cover depicts. In my initial Canva search, I found many abandoned places. This one caught my eye because of the nature that the couple is […]

Winifred’s Place

I tried to base Winifred’s appearance loosely on the picture that I used for her on my previous post: The goal was to make her appear kind and approachable in order to match her friendly and loving personality. I placed Winifred in front of her house, which I also identified in my post introducing her. I […]

Talking to the End

After that frightening intro video (which I will refer to later), I created my character! I loved the archetype I submitted (The Lover, who still sees zombies as humans who can be saved), so I used it to create Winifred Hart. In this post I spent a lot of time trying to show how good she is. […]

Calming Sounds

For the final star, I created a short audio clip of calming sounds. I included beach waves and birds, which is what I immediately think of when I think of calming sounds. I also added some different instruments, including one that I have never heard of and cannot identify. I don’t have much to say […]

Finis Bus Ad

I scrolled through many audio assignments that had at least three stars until I found one that caught my eye: a fictional radio ad. I was immediately drawn to it because of the picture of Charlie Brown, and I loved the video! I decided to go with the theme of Magic School Bus, and the […]

The Frequencies of Friends

I found Frequency 2156 interesting and very difficult. Audio is a nice choice since in the case of the apocalypse, I don’t think many of us would have the time or ability to watch TV. We’ll either be hiding or running. The use of audio also allows the listeners to imagine the apocalypse. You might know that “they” are […]

Learning to Listen

My previous experience with audio has been fairly limited. I listen to B101.5 in my car, and my eleventh grade English teacher played a few podcasts for us in class (after talking about how amazing they are, to which we all rolled our eyes), but other than that, I tend to have some sort of […]
