I’m a terrible Game Master….

For this assignment, I decided to multiply myself. After a few different set ups, I was only able to accomplish two of me. I’d like to try another one later because I think this is a really fun idea and has a lot of cool potential.

I tried to mimic the board game environment, but it’s usually a lot more people and a lot more confusion.

These are a few of my favorite things….

For this assignment, I took a picture of my desk to highlight a few of my “favorite things”. By using Photoshop I was able to highlight the colors of these items in a Black and White photo by using a tool called ‘history brush’.desk

In case no one noticed, I have a slight fascination with owls. My last name, Saffos, translates to “wise man” in Greek, so once I got a tattoo of an owl to symbolize this, it became the go-to gift of all relatives and friends. Two of about twenty owls are pictured, and I love them all equally. Another¬† nod to the family culture can be found in the lower right hand corner… the Greeks are very fond of espresso and I keep and use this cup in remembrance of my grandparents who owned the set before me.

The highlighted books are pretty self-explanatory; both Poe and Tolkien are two of my favorite authors (Douglas Adams was featured until I carelessly lost my set of the Hitchhiker’s Guide). Other than that, my favorite things are pretty mundane. A Minnie Mouse figurine is placed next to a picture of a relative who referred to me as “Minnie”, my favorite and longest lived candle, a Buddha figurine my father gifted to me, and an invite to my cousin’s wedding (weddings are a pretty big deal in my family).

Hope you guys enjoy!

Assignment #1: From Ashe to Zyra

For my first visual assignment, I decided on the A-Z collage. My topic was League of Legends.

In case anyone has never heard of it, League of Legends is a MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) and these days it is hugely popular, not only because it is FREE, but also because of its wide and ever expanding roster of characters, otherwise known as “champions”.

Each of the Champions have their own detailed art and lore, and there are currently over 100. Of course, I could only list 26 here, from A-Z, but you can get a pretty good idea of the extensive amount of work that goes into creating each character.

Hello new friends!

I thought I’d start out and try and make something that set the tone for my blog. Of course, the gif doesn’t load unless you click on it and it took me 3 hours to make in inkscape. So while I’m sure this all sends some kind of message, it is definitely not one of my competence.



EDIT: IT LIVES! Many thanks to Jim Groom and Google.
