They're messy and out of control..I tried to go for a very old anatomy sheet look usually rough and done with ink. I chose this appearance because much like a flower and a mushroomcloud from an explosion(nukes aren't the only ones that produce them) oil spills tend to start out small and then as time goes on they can rapidly "mushroom"/blossom out of control.

For anyone interested in the people I presented on earlier you can find more information on them through the following links. Also I believe I mentioned them at the end of my presentation but a link to passion pictures is provided as well for anyone interested.
Toshio Iwai:(main site is down for this person, however the site for the tenori-on is available)
There are many other links but these are the best sources I was able to come across and have a good deal of information to get started with, if you're interested in any of them.

This is one of my favorite photos of my two female friends getting married. It was originally in color and needed a lot of color correction and some sharpening. I choose to add a heart filled with the colors of the gay pride flag while allowing their shape to still be seen. I wanted to highlight same sex marriage because I feel that no one has the right to tell you who to love...

As a student I am fully commitment to become a better graphic artist. This class (web design) will enforce my knowledge in web design and will allow me to enrich my design sensibility. I believe it is very important to use computers as a medium to create art rather than just concentrate in the technical parts of it. Also, I am interested in the experimentation of visual psychology and in the study of its impact in cultural changes. I am very excited about this class and I know it will bring a lot of changes to my portfolio.
I'm Robert Lewis Nelson. Usually, I create images of vector illustrations with type that have social and political undertones to them. I also incorporate elements of fashion, because fashion is one of the primary ways people form their own identities and their opinions of others.
I want to become an art director at a book publishing house, magazine, or advertising agency. Another future goal would be getting into entrepreneurship. I've recently have become very interested in the prospect of creating my own brand and business.
This paper cut was re-drawn by me in Illustrator from the book: Wycinanka Polska(Polish Paper Cut), author: Antoni Sledziewski, Warsaw 2008
I am excited to get to know everybody in this class and see everyones' work!!!!!!
My name is Rajah and this is my 8th year of college and Im almost positive that Im a senior now. The reason Im in this class is 1. because i have to be and 2. because it's important for me to get a foundation in web design. Ive dabbled in it over the years with dreamweaver and doing cut-n-paste hack jobs, but I've never had patience nor the drive to sit down and learn it on my own. Out of all my classes this semester, I hope that I learn the most from this one cause I'll definitely be using it in the future.
Below is a picture of the Philly Cheesesteak that I had at the Brownstone Diner in Jersey City, NJ.
For the ladies, Im 5'11 and a somewhat solid 240 pounds. I like sandwiches and free refills along with meteor showers at night. My main goal in life is still a mystery although I wouldn't mind having a wife(wives) and a few kids. I play video games in my spare time and company time . Ive been growing my beard and 'stache since November 2009 and have been asked quite frequently by my mother and nana to please shave. Ive taken their requests into consideration.
That's pretty much all you need to know about me. If there's something else you'd like to know, feel free to ask, just remember though, Im also free to ignore you. Have a splendid day.
