The poor post office

    Panel 1: Mail! Oh boy, I bet it’s from one of my friends- look at that cute envelope! Panel 2: Glitter… What did I ever do to them? The cute envelope was full of lies and falsehoods 🙁   In this three-star assignment, I was to show a change of emotion in two […]

It’s rude to snoop through a lady’s purse

How uncultured. Let’s begin with my beauty items- Powder Compact I sing under hot lights all night, I can’t look oily! I’m the backbone of the whole place, imagine if Frank Sinatra came in one night and saw me looking anything less than perfect? I would be ruined. Perfume Darlin’ if you’ve ever been backstage, you […]

WEEK 2- WHY DID THE POSTMAN RING?

To start us off, here are my daily creates: This week was really, really, really rough. I don’t like reading very much, and I especially hate reading when I dislike the characters. I also hate Hemingway. Honestly, the majority of my week was spent just trying to get through the literary tumors of this week’s readings (except for […]

THANKFULNESS X10

Original assignment here   I am thankful for: Love Health School Pizza My fantastic art skills   (obviously) Honestly, I thought that this assignment would be easy to knock out. That was my main motivation. I mean- it takes 20 seconds max, right? I read through the tutorial/tips on the assignment page before actually doing […]

The Postman Hates The Milkman

Original assignment here We went a little way, and then she stopped. “Frank, I feel funny inside.” “Here, hold on to me.” “Oh, Frank. Maybe I strained myself, just then. Trying to keep my head up. So I wouldn’t gulp down the salt water.” “Take it easy.” “Wouldn’t that be awful? I’ve heard of women that […]

Delia LaSalle

  French creole, tall, average build. Conventionally attractive, but not anything out of the ordinary. Long black hair, deep set green eyes, a small gap between her front teeth. Enjoys wearing a full face of makeup. When singing, she wears a stereotypical long dress with a slit up the sides and elbow-length gloves. Born April […]

NOIR READINGS- GET OUT OF THE HEMINGWAY!

Dear god were this week’s readings painful. THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE: I hated everyone. I hated the disjointed writing style, the lack of imagery, the choppy dialogue, but most of all I hated the story itself. Cora is an ungrateful, unlikeable character who is matched perfectly with “trampy” Frank. In reality, they’re both asshats who […]

WEEK 1-BACK TO BASICS

Daily Creates   I would have to say that this bootcamp week wasn’t too rough. I already had twitter, wordpress, and soundcloud accounts. Flickr and gravatar were easy to join and operate, though YouTube was a headache. I had to go through and validate 3 different emails before I could do anything. The biggest headache […]
