This GIF took a lot of time and effort to get to this point, all the way from the beginning of April. At first, it was going to be a cowboy walking from a grassy plain into the internet, but I couldn’t get the cowboy photo I had into a form that would show the internet gif. Therefore, I went with a picture of a prospector walking with his pack mule. I got rid of the background using Photoshop, then put the two together into a to.be field. When I got them in the right places, I recorded them using Quicktime. However, in the rough copy I had, there were multiple shots where the video lagged. With the help of the Professor, I was able to edit them out in Adobe Premiere and get it to this point. The GIF itself gives off a bit of a TRON vibe, because of the internet gif looking like you’re traveling into cyberspace.
Now that the end of the semester is close by, I now feel like I’m running around like a chicken with its head cut off. So much stuff to finish, and I don’t know where to start, and I procrastinated throughout Spring Break. Help.
Since we should start using our personal websites, I put this post on mine. It’s my first actual post on my site (not counting the About page, but whatever). Come in and see.

I was inspired by fhaniff22’s post Typographic Melon to do this exercise. At first, I didn’t know what to do for this. I thought we would have to do this by hand, and that would be a nightmare to do. Thankfully, they had linked to a page where you could upload an image into an online typography editor and let it do the heavy lifting.
This pair of photos were made using one of those old-timey toy robots they had in I think the 50’s. To be honest, the picture turned out to be a bit too light for my liking.
For this pair, I used a picture of a toy train. I ended up liking this much more than the other. The colors stand out more with this picture and you can see more of the area through the typography.
