Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect with this class, and I was nervous in the beginning…
But I must admit this class was far beyond my expectations, and it was neither difficult or stressful. It was light, easy to navigate and enjoyable. I found learning techniques in DS106, photoshop, and giphy useful. I even enjoyed making posts each week, and that the class was flexible enough to allow us to miss days but still get the work done. CT101 may be my favorite class in all my four years at York. Thank you so much, Professor Ryan, for taking the time to show us how to make interesting posts and digital art this semester. I am truly thankful. Also, two of my favorite things about this class was the week when we did the vaporwave art, as well as being able to create and post on a website of my own! Again thanks love this class 3000!
This week in CT101 our task was to share our “shiny new websites” and check out the websites of our classmates. This whole process of creating a domain name, editing our website, determining our purpose and making weekly posts was quite interesting.
I’ve checked out some websites from a couple of people in the class. A friend of mine Jan has a really cool website. He showcases artistic poems written by himself as well as photography he’s done as well. What I enjoy the most about his website is that he allows the space to be a comfortable place where he can be vulnerable and get out all that he wants to show and say. Also, the content of his posts is intriguing as well. For example, he captured night scene landscapes, the picture itself was beautiful. I also liked that the poem in his post has a connection to the photographs he includes. If you are interested in poems then feel free to check out his website: http://worksofjan.com/. As a fellow artistic individual, I really appreciate what he’s sharing!
Here’s a sneak peek of Jan’s works of art.
Another website I found interesting was the website of another friend, Vivian. Her website is dedicated to posting her photography. I like that instead of just posting images she’s captured she also includes other content to spark the interest of her viewers. She includes a music video of an artist she’s currently listening to, as wells as numerous photos she’s taken around NYC. Vivian clearly has some skills and is really mindful of the presentation of her website. For example, she has a gallery plugin that allows her to present multiple photos in a gallery format, in which viewers can click each thumbnail of the images to view it in larger detail. If you want to check out her website follow this link: https://wingmanvivianho.com/

Honestly, I was impressed by the websites of my classmates, everyone is progressing nicely and making unique use of their website.
If you haven’t already check out my website, like Vivian and Jan, I also post my own works of art here at https://kaartcreations.com/
Today in CT101, I got a chance to create my very first vapor cool. It was totally fun and a straightforward process to follow. I’m excited that I’m getting the opportunity to make amazing works of art, DIGITALLY. I never thought I’d learn so much in such a few weeks. For my vapor wave, I used my favorite colors, though I was skeptical about doing so because it seemed like these colors are the standard. To make my image unique, I adjusted the way the background gradient appears and selected all the fresh graphics I could find that matched my theme best.
I think the outcome of this piece is excellent, everything seems to belong, and each element creates a new element. I’m proud of what I created!
Though it’s not related to the Vapor Wave assignment, feel free to head over to my personal website to check out more of my art! 🙂 —–> https://kaartcreations.com/
In the latest assignment for CT101, we got to choose a postcard from online. Using our amazing photoshop skills and and few simple steps we customized the postcard of ur choosing as we saw fit.

I chose Seoul, South Korea for this assignment because for almost a decade I’ve been dreaming about taking a trip to Asia, after becoming a fan of Kpop (South Korean music), I narrowed down my ideal destination to South Korea. If I am able to visit one day I hope to stay for at least two weeks, and travel to various cities and landmarks in South Korea.

I love the change in seasons, especially when we move from extremely cold or deathly hot weather. The thing I dislike is the symptoms of my seasonal allergies, and that I usually get sick as the weather changes. It doesn’t help at all that spring is the season of allergies. Anyhow last week I woke up with full intentions to come to class, but to be honest, I felt like I was hit by a bus. So I dismissed my alarm, and went back to sleep…
