In Case You Missed It

No hyperlinks, so you know exactly what you're seeing. I would embed it, but I'm assuming any youtube clips will be taken down. It was fun looking at facebook last night, as most of the statuses were links to this trailer. The book is over 40 years old and has had such an impact on so many childhoods. It'll be fun to see it, because the audience will be such a huge range of ages.

My sister (who is quite a few years my senior) actually painted life-size monsters on her walls. I had a smaller sized Max on mine for a bit. Hopefully I'll be able to post the hilarious photo of my grandmother in the room.

Just wanted to give you something to smile about! More updates later, with some of my book projects.

My Symbology and Semiotics midterm, a strange form of puppetry to answer a given question. Can you guess the question? We've been discussing perception in class, in terms of user/viewer understanding. It's interesting, because there were six of us answering the same question, but each of us had different visual ideas (though for the most part, the same verbal answer). Visual versus verbal has kind of fascinated me lately, I've been struggling to find a balance between the two. Hopefully, I'll have time to write up some sort of longer explanation of what I mean.

This was a very fun problem to solve. I really love the forms created by the shadows:
