This is an early iteration of a Rambo poster I’m working on. It was harder than I thought to find an iconic silhouette to represent a movie (at least a movie that I liked). Things I like- the knife- iconic enough to represent the movie (although it needs some polishing) the idea of the Vietnam and American flag blending to parallel the forces in the plot Rambo as blood on the tip of the knife. Where I doing this project in an English course, I could go into much more detail about how my choices reflect the movie. Things that need work- I think it’s too complex still. Rambo may need to be black and white. I don’t like the font. I may write First Blood instead (also leads to a First Blood/Vampire movie mashup possibility down the road) The dimensions are all wrong. I’m putting the not quite right stuff out there so anyone who might be interested can see the process and the thoughts going on. I think that’s good. I also don’t want people worrying about only posting perfection. This course ought to be fun and should allow people to brainstorm on ways to improve product together and continuously.
Some Friday fun: Lifehackerposted “a mathematical formula for procrastination” awhile back. Sorry it took me so long to pass it on to you. Oh, and speaking of procrastination, here’s a tenacious young man who tried with all of his might to nail jello to the wall. (via BoingBoing) Now get out there and do something! (or just wait until later…)
After seeing D’Arcy’s mouse drawingI’m tired and that’s the best and least pretentious way I can think to say that right now. I decided to download iographica and make one myself. It does tell the story of my day- including when I went to a 2.5 hr meeting and forget that I had the program turned on. It might be interesting to do trade these and have outsiders describe what led to that particular piece of mouse art.
