This semester, I learned a lot of knowledge from advertising design. project4 is my first study of color, works six expressed six different colors. Before my computer skills are very bad, but after this class, I think I improved a lot, and learned how to use Photoshop and adobe e Illustrator.

I used Photoshop to complete Project 2, which I imagined by listening to music graphics. This is one I’ve never tried it, I’m painting the music, and I think this is a very wonderful thing. ADV 1100 let me got to know a lot of knowledge about design, it was a very interesting lesson, and it also let me have more for design.

Reflection of Project 5 And Gallery Note

Gallery Note: The name of this work is called the summer, it is artist Dongmin lin’s works. In the December 21, 2014. The completion of this work tool is an article, and circles the word from the article, the final composition of the new sentence. The work of the newly formed sentence is “you thought every eye looks great. She let herself know summer was nothing distress. Flowers are quite.”



This is my first attempt to describe my art works very detailed. I spent two and a half hours to complete my project5. I spent a long time thinking about how to make the reader see my writing like seeing the same the vivid artwork. I hope my writing and my artwork can be as attractive as it requires a lot of beautiful words to describe my work. Writing and artwork are inseparable, when a work of art is created, perhaps someone can understand its beauty really means. Writing can analyze the meaning of the work, with the details. Writing to let more valuable works of art. I want to be a designer, it is necessary to improve my writing skills, so that people can learn more about my work, and more are attracted to my work. In project5 of. I am in the third person way to introduce the production process works, details representation works, and meaning.

Project#5: Gallery Catalogue Entry

Art can make others life more colorful, art has always been with us. “Summer” is the name of this work, a Humument created by Dongmin Lin. The artwork was inspired by Tom Philips’s original artistic rendering of text, A Humument. Background work is an article in a part of the short story “The Necklace”. Then the First, Lin chose favorite short story from her high school “The Necklace” and then circle in the article with some words to form a new sentences. And in accordance with the new meaning of the sentence, with the corresponding color and graphics. Finally, the formation of the words became an artwork.

Lin’s new sentences are that “you thought every eye looks great. She let herself know summer was nothing distress. Flowers are quite.” Theme of this work is in the summer, She painted a red circle and not sequentially arranged in the work. The summer is hot, red represent warm colors, representing the mood of hot; the two colors show the attraction to the viewers. The colors of the sky are blue and yellow, which is to express the views of the time as a humid temperature. Red flowers falling in the soil that are orange and brown. Withered tree standing in the middle of the ground, all this scene is an artist trying to give you a calm feeling. Words with a blue circle and linked with the line; this looks like a winding road leading to the distance.

The placing of this image shows loneliness and quite. This is a small work after all, the tree in the middle of the paper, and this is a withered and lonely tree. The tone and the placing of the paper show a hot and dry situation, the outer space of the tree are nothing but air and the carved lines and it is a withered and lonely tree. Cinnamon colored tree gives hope and the feel of companionship.

Lin fond out the nature and desert are full of curiosity, though she never been to the desert, but her mind is filled with passion and imagination of desert. This work is Lin’s imagination of desert and a painted works from her imagination. Lin feels like the everyday on the desert are summer alike. There is almost no life in the desert. In that way, she imagined summer as empty and quite. Yellow sand, brown soil, the plant life can give hope that more lives can survive in the desert.

However, at the loneliest time the lonely tree has some friends too, the red flowers. Of all the emptiness of the wild desert the red flowers are the dead trees only friends. That is enough for the tree to feel satisfy.

Desert gives the viewer the feeling of summer, it is very hot, and because there is very little to calm the existence of life. Red could not appear in the desert, red flowers appears in the works in order to show hope. Desert can be shown as the troublesome and difficulties in our life. However Lin’s intention is that we should not give up, to believe that the plight of the red we would see, there would be hope.

Art can give our soul or spiritual comfort it needs art can be everywhere. Art can make the impossible seems possible. This is her art; this is how Lin uses her art to bring you the kind of spirit. Just like in the desert, like in times of hardship, appear to believe that there will be red it would appear. In your most desperate time you will see.

Project 1 revised

My name is Dongmin Lin. I am 18 years old. Currently I am a freshmen enrolling in the New York City College of Technology. I came from China, and Chinese is my first language. This September is the turning point of my life, because I went to the college. It is a new environment to me; it felt so unfamiliar to here. Although that I like here a lot. I never ever attend a school that is so far from where I live. I live in flushing, and I barley take the subway, Miss direction often lead me to get lost. I like children very much, I am a girl with a target, and I am also chasing my dream. I like stuff that is made by hand, such as knit scarf, cross-stitch. My passionate is about crafting, cutting papers and making small and delicate objects. I am also very patient. In the next five thru ten years I can imagine my self-sitting in a studio working with my good friends and colleagues. My design aesthetics are simple and easy also with some delicate detail in it. When I come to a new place I would be very shy, but I sincerely hope that everyone in our class can become good friend. I am an optimistic person.

My avatar is a photo of myself. My best friend took the photo. And it was taken on the way to school during last winter’s morning. This image is very meaningful to me. At the time, I lived with my best friend. My friend and I were in same class together. We nearly spend all our times together. My friend enjoys taking photos for me, and she helped me to record my life. We ate corns for breakfast every morning because we think eating corns can lose weight. You can me with black under eye bags because I don’t get much sleep, especially now I have college.

When people look at my avatar they might think I am a very active girl. Actually they are really misunderstood. I am very shy when I communicate with someone that I am not familiar with. Then you might think I like to eat corn. However, that is not what it seems. Actually I do not like to eat corn now. The reason I said this before is because it was that that time of the year, I was on my diet, and that’s why am ate corn everyday. You rarely see me with make up. However, I like makeup. Makeup can make me feel very confident and it makes me feel like am a new person. However, I want to arrive early and be on morning in class, and that’s why you don’t see me with the pretty makeup on in school.

My profile will convey my character, interest and my goal. You may think it’s very hard to communicate with me. But actually it is not. I want to upload this photo because I was a lovely and cheerful girl when you really know me. To be honest I like to make friend, and cherish every friend of mine. You may notice the hat and scarf in my avatar. Yes that is my favorite color, wind red. And the beanie and scarf have taken me a long time to weave. I know there will be countless mistakes before succeed, but I it wont hesitate me to stop trying. So I do not like to easily give up the things I am interesting in, even though it is difficult. But still, I will not lose my passion for advertising design. One of my goals is to graduate within four years. I know if I want to master the skill of English will not be easy. But I believe there will always have pay will have harvest.

Reflection for my project 4

First of all, I really enjoyed project4. Project4 let me learn a lot of writing skills. Learned how to convince others. If you want to convince someone must have sufficient evidence. There are two ways to collect evidence, the first field trip own, the second is transported there are external information such as finding evidence from the book, such as the newspaper or online. And the use of exotic materials used in the writing, the information requires careful written to the source.project4 is about a beautiful route is better than ordinary land line. First of all, I personally went to explore the beautiful route is better than the ordinary route, the fact that beautiful line gave me a lot of surprises and good mood, beautiful line worth me to spend a few minutes to go. Then I used the exotic information from the Internet for a beautiful place to find more information. For example, its history, people comment on it. I think finding out exotic material than the parental search for information easier. Probably because it was a cold winter, go look for information is a challenge. Haha!In fact, those beautiful places I have traveled many times, but I never want to search for information about them. project4 expand the opportunities for extra-curricular knowledge, in order to make beautiful location more attractive, I’m looking for a lot of information about it. Some data also surprised me. For example, Adams street railway, which had existed 100 years ago, and has been preserved.Through this project4, let me more and more like Brooklyn. It has a natural beauty, the beauty of color, art did not, or there is more beauty I have not found.In the four months ago, Brooklyn for me is a very strange place. Busy I just want to go home quickly. By exploring this route, let me know more about it, I feel the beauty here. It continues to attract me.

Project 4

Choose beautiful route more meaningful than the ordinary route. It only takes a few minutes difference between the beautiful route and ordinary route. Beautiful route can gives people a good mood along with it, it also attract people. There are several ways to show the beauty of routes: The natural beauty, the beauty with color and the beauty of art. Knowing these will easily leave a deep memory in your mind. New York City is an outstanding place, its beauty just need you to spend 10 minutes for you to explore it. This is a city where you live; you should know its beauty. But often people in New York miss the beauty of it.

New York is a city that doesn’t sleep, people works day and night. Due to the pressure everybody have they will feel busy and tired every day, therefore they will select a destination that’s the shortest and fastest. The shortest route might be the fast way for you to get to your destination, but are you really happy about it in such a route where you will be bored and preoccupied with quickly reach your destination? But if you choose to walk another route you don’t normally do, it will give you have a good mood. You might think that time is money, but money cannot buy a good mood. The good mood into work or study will make you more effective. For example, the detour from City Tech to Jane’s carousel, you will find that it is a pleasant journey.


One example how you can get there is once you at our college go down left from the school gate and then cross a road turns left on TILLARY Street. You’ll see the natural beauty of a park. The Cadman plaza park is in Tillary Street and Cadman Plaza east junction. Initially the name of the park is Brooklyn Bridge Plaza. There are 10.4 acres, built in 1940, where as an extension to the parking.(Cadman Plaza Park) this park will let you feel the beauty of nature. There are full of trees and grass that can let you sleep in the green kingdom. “Its plantings, lawns and trees are extremely attractive.” (By Raanan Geberer) Trees and grass in the park can lure people. The city is full of buildings and heavy traffic, people need natural plants to ease the mood, so the natural beauty of the park attracts a lot of people come here to relax. Most appeals to you in front of a grass, where the most beautiful moment in the afternoon. The sun shines on this piece of sowing light green grass, a group of children playing on the lawn, and even some excitement in that baby learning to walk, even if the fall is not afraid, because of the warm grass to protect him. When you walk from the on-chip lawn, the sun shines on you along with the meadow you are lying on. You also feel the warmth, as if this city and you embrace. With the child’s laughter and joy jumping efforts run the city will let you feel the power of laughter.

Walk straight down from Cadman Plaza E to Water Street you will see the beauty with color, the gift store. The store’s exact address is 45 Washington Street, Brooklyn NY 11201. In the route the focus is that this is a gift shop door. The name of the gift story is called Dabney Lee. This is not an ordinary gift shop gift shop because the furnishings have been carefully arranged. Through the transparent glass door and saw inside is colorful, a little shop hung a red light. Red gives you a feeling of warmth and happiness. And hung with colorful handmade paper-cut, full of gift shop stood. Vision through this glass door makes you feel everyday seemed too festive. Festivals will always giving the feeling of joy, so the store can gives you a feeling of happiness.


Turn right from Water Street to Adams Street, then turn left you will find a track. This is not a flat road, the road is uneven gray stone mosaic pieces together, and rock and crevice of the rock is clearly visible. It looks very old. On this road there is a section of track, you would think this is a historical mark, which seems to take you into the history of the track, giving you endless reverie space. This track started on April 10th, 1888 and closed on March 5, 1944. (BMT Myrtle Avenue Line). The Myrtle Ave El traced the starting point Fulton Street El to the end Fulton Street, and then Route has been through Adams Street, Myrtle Ave, Wyckoff Ave, and Metropolitan Avenue. (By Mark S. Feinman) Now, the focuses are the shoeprint on the track. You can imagine what it is like. What is only a small part? When you carefully observe the tracks, you will find this track a line, which has several small pink footprints, although it looks very simple. But the details of the painting very well. Shoeprint was in front of very obvious, but gradually disappeared. Evening would be the best time to go there, the golden sunshine on this road, just comes from the front, and this is so fantastic. On this old road, which makes you think this city is telling you that he had, but also arouse you to think about your ever.

Finally, you walk down on Adams Street then turn left on Plymouth Street, and then you just walk straight down on Plymouth Street you will find the destination. This is a wonderful section of the journey; just spend more 10 minutes than ordinary route!

But some might say the shortest route is the best resolution to the destination. We can always spend a little extra time to enjoy the great vista of the city of Brooklyn. Life is too short for us just come and goes, so why don’t we all enjoy it better.

Choose beautiful route more meaningful than the ordinary route. Over all New York is a city with non-stop action, because everyone is in a hurry to go to work or school come. Therefore we missed the beauty of the city, every little corner of the city are hidden beauty, just use a little time. The unknown workers whom we don’t know are working everyday to make a little declaration for this city. You will be able to enjoy it. I too understand the struggle we all have, you have work I have school. However a little time of yours on your way home can change the whole mood, therefore just use it wisely.
