Jorge Buenabad – s1 Discover

Story: There are depths unknown to us. Suffocated of its gleaming blue light, the ocean now an ebony veil. A bastard with no name lurks unopposed. It is always unfortunate to hear of those missing out at sea, however. Alyona’s perilous journey is not one of those tales.

  • I believe the shapes in the picture to be organic. The is no clear foreground nor background due to the 50/50 ratio between the positive and negative spaces, leading me to think that the picture is ambiguous.


Story: The enemy never slept. We tucked in our loved ones while they loomed over our shoulders. In wisps of wind, we swore we heard nothing. Now they are at our steps, waiting.

  • No shape in this picture is geometric but organic. The leaf easily represents the foreground. However, I can not say that the picture is obvious because it lacks the 30/70 split. I will fix the ratio in the future.



Steph Balloqui – final images (step four: deliver)

Hello guys, gals, and gender rebel pals! Here’s the final images, inked and scanned!



One problem I quickly encountered while inking my images was that being left handed, as well as never working with ink before, made it a really difficult process- but I managed! To get the exact shape of the image, I cut out my original sketch and used it as a stencil.



This one was my favorite to do, as I found myself having more space and room to be creative and freestyle the work while also getting the original wood pattern to come out. This piece also reminds me a little bit of the album cover to Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures with the usage of only black and white with heavy line/shape work.

Defining – Israel Martinez


My ambiguous was inking in a way that its like a left versus right. I wanted a yin yang which makes everything pop out more. My first ink drawing was smaller and made the drawing a bit bigger so it could relate everything better. The first one had a smaller shape shows more of the outside and didn’t get the right proportions that I wanted.

After presenting I found out what I did wrong and what I could to make everything come together better, and to focus on the actual black vs white.


My obvious ink drawing started off good, but the proportions were off just a bit so I changed it while going into the Bristol. So I zoomed in on the picture and made the proportions better. From 60/40 to 70/30.

I will be editing the pictures and turning in on Tuesday

Ambiguous Image

The Apocalypse painting

This picture was first taken near 14 street, where this an old abandoned firebox that people use to call the fire department just in case there was any fire nearby, but this box has been abandoned and as you can tell destroyed by scraps off stickers being placed on it, as well as the paint falling off.

The backstory of this photo is that the earth has been destroyed by other countries by bombing and nuking everywhere in the state and every country because; the people had enough with every policy in the country so in act to control the people all the states agreed to start over by bombing everywhere. Which they did, but haven’t anticipated how many they would save, and it was too late for the government and president for each state to do something. One by one the town and country starts blowing up, with the people unknowing of the occurrence being destroyed with theirs towns. However; not all was lost some people did survive by hiding in underground bunkers but almost all their loved ones were destroyed. Now that time has passed throughout the broken earth some people start realizing a painting that was freshly made almost everywhere the people went. Which was the painting of a misshapen human with a big leg and a small body walking around the rubble of houses and cities, and after a while the people around the world started theorizing who he or she was? Was he/ she a person who survived but slowly started mutating because of the radiation that all the nukes and bombs they were near too. Or was it because he/she grew mad about having no one to talk to so they started to paint to keep their insanity around the world hoping to find someone. Whichever the case is it kept people safe in a way that there are more survivors who have also survived the nukes and bombs that were set off, by different governments.


This image is called “The last,” this image was taken in Brooklyn near City Tech, and its a picture of a cap of a glue bottle that was left or dropped in the street of the crosswalk road.

The Story of this picture started with a boy named Roy where he was an average Freshmen in high school until a certain Monday came where he realized there were less and fewer people in his high school and on the streets, which for an average person wouldn’t mind, but reports on the news lately started popping up that people were mysteriously despairing out of nowhere. He soon started to get nervous until one day he came to his first-period class he realized he was the only one in his class, but not only that he looked outside he saw no one that he could see he then started to wonder and freaking out. So in a desperate act, he ran home to see what has become to his family, but he soon found out when he started to run his booke back started to float up. But not only that he was starting to fly up as well he finally knows what happened the gravitational atmosphere of the earth finally broke because of people’s pollution causing our atmosphere to float when we least expect it. But by the time Roy found out he was floating away, and a few days later after Roy flew up his book bag fell back on the floor where he floated and his school supplies fell where a bottle of glue cap fell out and landed in the streets.

Story Behind the Pictures Israel Martinez


This is a picture number 1 of the Lost and Found Project

The story behind this is that two major lands are fighting to get all the keys to unlock the vault. This vault contains much military power that can change the war, both sides have all, but two of the keys to unlock the vault this is one of the doors that opens the vault and with the key you must try and complete the puzzle to continue. When the key is put in the all three turn and lead to the puzzle room which nobody has ever got into. Lets hope the rumors are real and we are able to unlock vault and win this war for my land.



This is picture number 2 of the Lost and Found Project

This picture represents the two lands that are fighting in the war. Both lands fighting against each other to control all the land. The leaders putting both lands in hard times just for power they conquered other lands took people hostage and destroyed villages just to grow in strength. The people of both lands want this war to stop and be united peacefully, but the leaders both just want as much power as possible.


Steph Balloqui – images

Obvious #1- Found on a construction site near my house. I was trespassing on some private property because “be gay do crimes” and I stumbled upon a TON of broken up concrete. I like to think that they accidentally dropped a car in this spot, or that they lost control of the equipment and it all fell apart.

Obvious #2- I switched this image out from the last one because i liked how much clearer this image is. This was taken outside of the train station, and I like to think that one too my phones dropping onto the concrete left a hole.

Obvious #3- There’s a piece of sidewalk outside of a bar I used to work at, and when it was first poured it was written out to spell “Gordie”, but maybe Gordie missed one too many child support payments and his angry ex wife destroyed the “r” almost completely, and now it reads “Go Die”.

Ambiguous #1- A picture of the sidewalk taken with flash at around 3am. I was looking for animal bones in the woodsy area by my house (I collect bones I’m not hexing anyone I promise) and thought that maybe this would be an interesting idea.

Ambiguous #2- A boat dock at 7am. I decided to come back and take this picture after I took the first one with flash earlier in the morning, and picked a different spot so the patterns would look different. I managed to get onto the property of the country club by my house and loved how “clean” the dock looked.

Ambiguous #3- The same dock at around 4am. Taken with flash, and you can even see the shadow of my phone. This was from the same night I was looking for animal bones, and I realize that it looks like I might be a serial killer due to me always going out at night but I promise I haven’t killed anyone; it’s just easier to look for bones at night.
