In class today, we developed a new way to create more interesting posts by incorporating vapor waves. Vapor waves are the new idea of memes in recreating 80s and 90s styles, using Photoshop as the graphic design tool. However, creating vapor waves wasn’t an easy task to accomplish, in fact, it was quite difficult to get all the steps down one by one. Vapor waves are dynamically cool, and fancy, because you can pick any images in transparent form and convert them into the png to transfer them into a big artboard into Photoshop. After doing so, you can resize your image, even arrange them in any order you prefer, creating a dramatic new scene.
Welcome to the vaporwave trend…..iTS MIND BOOMING!!
Now, the days are going down fast, everything is going to get more difficult to handle because you got assignments due, midterms and exams to complete in order achieve that finish grade, that you most desperately want.
Hard work in progress and goals reached. Even though it might say cram week on top, it does not mean spiral out of control. Plan and organize, the remaining months, so you have everything worked out before the holiday’s hit you because you do not want to look like this if it does become cram week for you>
Nah, we don’t want that. We want this>
Recently in CT, we created animated portrait GIF again, but this time using multiple layer frames of the image with dramatic effects in the Adobe Photoshop, which consist the lasso tool that I used to cut out the glasses on Spike Lee’s face. The image I chose was Spike Lee because he is an iconic filmmaker, actor, and writer since the 80s. His films target social injustice and controversy towards race and violence in law enforcement, and the government in urban communities, that connect to our world today. He is the only black filmmaker I know that still holds the culture of urban life in his films rather it was good or bad. Even specific locations within the films formulate meanings, that some people might pass by when they are watching them. This class has given me the opportunity to introduce, people in the music/movie industry that matters to me in GIF form.

Recently in CT 101, we learn the amazing art of how to make animated portraits, and the perfect person I thought of was my idol Tae Yang, my favorite K-pop member from the Big Bang. He raps, sings and his fashion sense is always on point. Anyone would think he was crazy because his hair was always changing but that is what makes him unique in his own. Creating an animated Gif portrait is not a one-day thing to learn in a matter of minutes, it’s a long step by step process and missing a beat is crucial. I would know, it took a while but I got back on track with the flow of things and I GOT IT DONE!!
CT 101 with Professor Seslow has become even more interesting and digitally creative when he teaches us about the panoramic feature on our smartphones for the first time. Entering the world of panoramic view, understanding it and using it to the utmost advance was incredibly amazing because my team members and I got an idea, where we are having a social discussion involving mannequins but the funnier part of it, was us carrying a half mannequin around with no legs to pose. Even though, it was an experience to remember. It took a lot of determination and hard work to get it done because there were a few obstacles that got in the way but after we finished the panoramic photo it turned out great.
