You are invited to Noir Not the Father!

For part of my 10 stars of assignments for this week, I chose to do the you’re invited project. The assignment was to create an invitation to some sort of event. I saw this as a perfect opportunity to create a invitation letter to my character Jack from the Noir Not the Father radio show. I have been getting better at photo editing so I was exited to take on this project as something that for once wasn’t completely unfamiliar.

This assignment was my four star assignment for the week. I had a lot of fun with this assignment and learned a lot from it. I wanted to dedicate this assignment to my noir character so I started out with a picture of a place that I imagined my character would live. I then started editing the photo more and more until I got to the image you see here. Obviously the photo doesn’t look like anything particular anymore but I really enjoyed the way it came out. This assignment was my first major photo editing experience


Honest video game cover

This three star assignment kind of explains itself. I have a lot of friends who enjoy playing online video games like call of duty but I cannot stand it. Whenever I hear them playing it sounds like they are playing exclusively with a bunch of little kids. For this assignment I had to focus mainly on editing text which was a big first for me. I tried to match the font and design of the original video game cover as best as I could.

Laptop Lingo

This assignment was two stars and fairly easy to do. I wanted to make this assignment somewhat dedicated to my noir character. My character does not live in a time where there were laptops so I had to imagine him in a setting where laptops existed. From there I decided he would like a pale toned minimalist laptop cover so that is what I went for. I used effects and editing to change this color pallet into something nicer.
