I chose this stable one because it was simple and it actually shows the meaning of being stable. I chose this ambiguous one because it was my favorite one out of all of them. it was pretty hard trying to cut these pictures out but i tried, its not the best but its something and i worked hard took me at least 2 and half to 3 hours trying to do this.it took a lot of cutting and erasing to get what i got here.

ENG1101 Project #1 (FINAL)
My name is Tyler Santiago I am 18 years old, I am Puerto Rican but I was born and raised in New York. Sadly I do not know how to speak Spanish wish I did. I’m a very active and athletic person, my favorite sport is basketball but I also play a little bit of football and baseball for fun and I also play softball with my father on his team on Sundays. I am pretty tall my height is 6 feet 4 inches; my friends say I’m a funny guy and fun to be around. Putting a smile on someone’s face or making a person laugh or even making them feel better makes me happy. I was born on April 13th, 1997, I have one older brother by 6 years he’s 24 years old. My family is pretty big. I’m into video games, hanging out with friends, and going to the movies. I like to listen to music, most types of music but mostly old school rap and R&B. I want to get into the advertisement business and I am looking forward for what I am going to learn and take in for these classes and hope it all pays off in the future.
As you can see my picture for my profile is pink, first of all pink is not my favorite color if that’s what you’re thinking from my profile picture. The reason why my picture is all pink is because I went on vacation to Cancun this summer and I went with about 26 people friends and family and since my mother is a home based travel agent she makes these shirts which happened to be pink this year that has all her business information on it and I liked how the picture came out so I edited it to have pink borders to match the shirt and that’s why my the picture is so pink. But I love to travel its like my top favorite thing to do besides playing basketball. I’ve been to so many places like Cancun Mexico, Florida, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and more and even more to come, the top 3 places I would love to visit is Australia, Japan, and England, I don’t really know why I want to go to those places but I just feel those would be some nice vacation spots and nice memories to be made. Another thing about me is that I love to smile and laugh if I’m not doing one of those things you already know there is something wrong with me.
My plan for my future if everything works out in college and I keep up and succeed and graduate is to become an advertising designer for a big company like Sony, Microsoft, or Samsung. It would be even better if I can get a job for one of my favorite gaming companies like Naughty Dog, or Ubisoft. The reason why I want to join these companies in the future are because I love the content and products these companies create, I use most of their products that they create. I really hope this all works out for me though because it seems like a fun field to be in but a lot of work that I’m willing to do though. If this doesn’t work out I’m going to have to get a job with my brother doing construction and I’m really not trying to do that, it’s a good job and all but since my dad did it and my brothers doing it I want to try something different and I’m trying to be my own person and make a living for myself. I really don’t want too rely on anybody I hate asking people for favors. I also want to get into editing films, videos, and photos because that seems like a fun thing and useful thing to know for my future.
My profile will convey who I am, what I like to do, my interest, and contact information if any of my classmates has a question about the what was taught in class or about the homework and ill give them my best understanding of it and ill try my best to help with the homework if I understand it myself. On an academic standpoint it’s going to have all my work that was assigned to me and that is due for this class ENG1101 or COMD1100. I would also like my profile to convey my imagination the stuff that goes through my head when I get to thinking about something. That is basically it for who I am and what I want in life.
Project #1 Introduction (Final)
Ayano Morishima was born in Japan and moved to the United States when she was just a 10 years old. Knowing English from her Saturday school in Japan, that opportunity made useful in her life when she moved to the U.S. Since English is her second language, she had to take ESL. It took her about 5 years of special class to pass, because she needed English language for her future. She graduated from the high school, The Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) in the year of 2015. She had no connection in any of the art department other than the ceramics during her high school year. She is now 19 years old and going to college to learn more about art and to be able to move one step closer in life towards her dream.
My passions lie in anime, because it’s what I grew up with. When I was little, my daily Sunday morning was anime day. I remember that the anime was for kids, like Sailor Moon, Ojamajo, Doraemon, Pokemon etc. As I grew up, the variety of anime or should I say genre of anime expanded. The expansion made me watch more teen type of anime such as Black Butler, Fairy Tail, Gintama, Attack on Titan etc. Because of this, it came into my mind that what if I can be able to draw like that and create my own anime which eventually be on T.V.? I eventually started drawing anime as I copied off others and was be able to work from there to make my own. I also like anime because it is almost a fantasy that will never come true in life. Sure, there are shows that turned to live actions. However it’s different because of anime, they could create something beyond. Many of my friends insist on me becoming an manga artist, however I declined. There are two reasons, first I cannot draw the same character and second living as a manga artist is a hard in financial terms. First problem can be solved, if I keep working on my drawing skills, however I cannot go through life which takes a lot of time selling manga and receiving money off of it. Instead, I want work as a character designer by hand and digitally. I’m usually aesthetic about my art work, because I get frustrated when final drawing looks horrible than the one I imaged in my head.Also, when head is too big for the body, etc. I am more into modern style of anime drawings, because old characters are drawn in a simple structure. Such as long face and big shiny eyes. I like to draw more complex and detailed characters which most people are more interested.
Usually I draw most of the time with a single pencil, but I hope I learn how to use various range of pencils. So that I could expand my drawing skills. Recently I am into digital drawing on a tablet. I find digital drawing interesting because there were techniques that I was able to do digitally and not by hand. (*Do not read the profile, it contains the wrong information. But you can check my drawing at: Here)
The avatar that I chose was a character from the BGM that I recently found on YouTube. (If interested, the music is from this link: Here) I fell in love with it, because of the catchy lyrics and the awesome beat grabbed my heart instantly. After that started to go to its official website where I encountered with the avatar. Before knowing it, the character itself matches my personality and the features. As I looked closely, his sharp eyes and angry eyebrows shows a powerful and smart mentally. However his one hand is covered over his chest, this action makes the connection that I also have the weak side and doesn’t always acts strong. We both have a same length of hair, however the difference of the avatar is that I don’t have a white hair and my gender is a girl.
My avatar can mislead people into thinking that I am mean or cold to people, because of the facial expression. Also, the characters that are written in the paper might mislead people that it is in Chinese characters rather than Japanese. Many people say that they are the same, however they are not. In history that these characters came from China. However, when it came across to Japan those characters changed a little to a simple character which people could understand more. In addition where the characters looks more girl like than the guy.
My profile conveys that I am a hard worker, and an amazing person who has a passion for anime. My imagination can go beyond the world, and always have a creative story that I can just make a book about it. Hoping that my creative imagination will become real in animation and my creativity would be acknowledge. This profile matters to me because this is who I am and always will be. After 10 or 20 years, I would still be interested in anime and have a creative mindset. If I changed, it will most likely be that I’ve become a boring person who only thinks about reality. Its good to have a time to be in your own world.
Urban Artifacts: phase 1
The three items I acquired are a rock, feather, and a broken, wooden clothes pin. Each of these have a distinct shape from one another and not one is alike. The rock is very flat on the bottom but smooth and bumpy above. The feather is small and light, as usual, very organic. Lastly the broken clothes pin just holds a unique shape but one that is mostly geometric instead of organic. I found the rock on a corner just down the block on tillary street. I assume this appeared due to the construction going on nearby. The feather was found in the center of metro tech just across the alligator floor sculpture. I predict a bird, pigeion most likely, had dropped a feather as it flew away. The broken clothes pin was found in a park in the back of a community dwelling. The most valid suggestion would be that someone had dropped, or the wind blew a clothes pin from the clothes line above. In terms of color, all three objects are dull. Hours spent working on each was about 25 minutes overall totaling to 5 hours overall.
Project #1 Introduction (Final)
My name is Eftekar but I would prefer to be called Efy. I am 18 years old and a freshman in college. I live in Brooklyn and I used to attend the High School Of Telecommunication Arts and Technology. My major is Art and Advertising design. I chose this major because I’m really interested in art. Most of the time when I’m not busy and have nothing to do I turn to art. My personal aesthetic or artistic style is drawing with a pencil and a journal size sketchbook. I don’t mind drawing on a bigger canvas but I prefer to draw on a regular size canvas. Usually, my drawings are simple but can have positive feedback. When I draw I rarely use color because my style of art is more realistic then cartoonist, so I leave the sketch with its shading/contouring. In the future, I hope to see my self as a famous artist/ advertising person working for a famous company or even better owning one of the biggest/famous companies.
The picture I chose for my avatar is a sketch that I’ve drawn my self, It’s called “growing without knowing”. The way to describe it would be a rose growing in the shape of a question mark, and the rose’ roots are wrapped around a heart, also the rose looks very bright and full of color. I chose this to describe me as a person because I’m interested in art and this is a piece of my work. To go in deeper meaning, this sketch describes me because as I was growing older, year by year adults like teachers or my parents would always ask me “what do you want to be when you grow up” and my answer would always be different or not really relating to what I really want. This is because I really didn’t know what to do when I grow up but I knew what I like to do as a hobby an that is to draw.
When looking at my avatar people might see differently then what I intend to portray. The viewer might think of their own deeper meaning of what the picture is. They might think I didn’t know what to chose as my avatar because of the question mark and they would think that I’m a hard person to get along with because of the thorns on the rose or they might be just confused because the avatar isn’t straight forward to the viewer.
I feel like my profile would help others know more about me as a person. It would show what I’m interested in, what my aesthetic is and what I hope to become. My profile would also help me meet new people that are interested in the same things I’m in.
ENG 1101 Project #1 Process
English 1101 Project #1 Process
In this project I know what I wanted to include by reading the instructions. I knew from there as our goal of this project is to introduce ourselves and also interpreted our OPENLAB avatar. I realized there were a few things I had to eliminate such as some personal private information. Enthusiastic to promote our own is not wrong, but it would be much better if we could be more temperate. I didn’t take much care of the composition because of everything already said in the instruction. It told us we need 4 paragraphs and what should we wrote about in each paragraph. I had let my classmate Efy to check my draft and I got a few good suggestions from her properly. She told me to add in some details of how people would misinterpret my avatar and how. As I read my classmate’s project and giving feedback I also got inspirations for my own project as well. We are always improving by absorbing others ideas. I spend 10 mins for both brainstorming and outlining, the time had increasing to two hours when I did drafting and revising, and for the last step polishing I spend only 20 mins. It took me a long time to finish up this project, but I also learned a lot as well when I wrote it. This project helps to introduce myself to others and also gave me a chance to recognizing more about what I was thinking about myself.
Urban Artifacts Phase #3
The reason I chose the ambiguous drawing I did was because I thought it would be easy. It ended up being the opposite. it was very difficult to make each figure the background made be the exact size it had to be or it just wouldn’t have looked like the original drawing. The stable one that I chose was fairly simple and I started off with that first because I would give me practice with using the exacto knife. I enjoyed making this project because it really tested my steady hand and patience. this project took me about 2 and half hours.
Urban artifacts: Phase 3
Compared to the last phase, phase 3 was just like phase 2. This is because both at first were complicated to understand but after understanding how and what to do they got simpler. Also this phase was similar to the last one because we had to choose an ambiguous and stable piece of work and transfer it to a Bristol board.
The piece to the left took approx 2-3 hours to finish and the piece to the right took about 5-6 hours.
Project #1 Introduction (Final)
Hey, My name is Xingfu, but I prefer people call me Ruky! I’m from ZheJiang, China, 18 years old. I came to N.Y. 4 years ago, still learning English. My major is graphic design, I haven’t decide what I want to be in future yet. currently I’m interest post videos on YouTube. I like to listen electrical and instrument music. I spend most of my free time playing games and making videos of game play, such like GTA v, Minecraft, and League of legends. I also watch anime, my favorite anime is one piece, Fairy tail, and Pokemon. Sometime I like to draw my own anime character.
The avatar of mine is one of my drawing, I hope people can see me from this drawing. In my avatar, the boy has red hair which is my favorite color. The halo means sometime I’m act silly. Hand covering mouth, I’m very shy when first meet people, but when we become good friends, I will show more of my self and they will be thinking “oh! so this is his ultimate form!” The wings, people some time think I have two different personality, because sometime I made people feel I’m a very friendly and peaceful person, nice to talk with. But some time I make them feel like I’m ruthless and a careless man, this is because I felt boring. Anyway, the point is I don’t have two personality. The poor looking clothes means that i’m not born in a wealthy family, but not that poor. The drawing is exaggerated.
People might think my avatar differently. The wings, I think most people will think that the wings means i have multiple personality, or double standard of my mind. The halo, people might think that i’m good person, but actually I’m not.
My profile will convey that my personality is not exactly like how my avatar have shown. This matter because I don’t want people think how I truly am by looking my avatar. And I hope people can know more about me by reading my profile.
Project #1 Introduction (Final)
Jingyi Jiao (Jingyi) was born in China, came to US when she was 13 years old. Before she came to live in here, she only know the easiest sentences for greeting just like “hello” or “how are you”. So it took her a hard time and a long period to try to communicates with others. Her English is still improving. Hopefully, she would become voluble and loquacious in English after she graduate college. She graduated from Midwood High School locates next to the Brooklyn College. During the time to make a final decision for the college that she had to enrolled to, she abnegated the Brooklyn College, and chosen City Tech. Jingyi love to draw the manga, to read manga, and to watch anime began from childhood. Even many years later, the passion for it never changed. She determined her future career must to be related to anime and design, such as animator, manga artist, graphic designer, and or the voice actress for anime only. However, these are her occupation insight before this summer. She is now simultaneously interested in creating a film as well. She got this consideration during this summer when she was volunteering at the creative department of a TV station names NTD ( New Tang Dynasty). As a staff volunteer she went for advertising photography for once with an advertisement crew. The director was stylish, voluble, and with a strong capability of dictating . She was fascinated with that ability, imagined if that was her, she felt to be a director is a right occupation for her to express her creative and direct ability. So now she adds in a new future career in her consideration list which is the director. Apparently, this would be the reason why she was chosen to enrolled to the City Tech, based on the name of the college, New York City College Of Technology, it obviously indicates they do teach a lot about the computer program usage, which means it also includes the graphic design, film editing and animation courses.
People could see Jingyi’s aesthetic from this avatar. You might think it is a wired avatar, but she doesn’t think so, she feels ordinary with this kind of antic avatar. The appearance of Jingyi’s avatar is a full shot of a Calico cat who’s acting in a humorous funny position. This is an anime Calico cat. He tightly stuck his face on the camera lens that taking a photo of him. He has a big eyes, small mouse, and a huge puffy face. This is a picture from an anime named Natsume’s Book of Friends, which is one of her favorite anime with healing style. By observing the cat from her avatar, he is a Calico cat likes to do the stupid things, and usually fooling around and making trouble. He also likes to eat a lot and fall in sleep for a long time, day by day never reduced, the appetite leads to his body and face shapes become puffy as what you see how he looks like now. He is lazy, crazy, and comical, but he is also friendly, playful, and sensitive.
Jingyi’s avatar can be considerate in a few different ways. Some people might misunderstand it as her avatar is just showing how comical, silly, and slothful the Calico cat is, but there actually are more tiny contents in this avatar that you haven’t noticed. Avatar, can be said that is people’s inner reflection. Calico cat stuck on the camera lens is not part of his fooling, it can be defined as he pursues to get closer to the others, wants to make friends, wants to help, and wants to encounter with more people. He desired to catch more attention from the people, so he wouldn’t be alone.
Jingyi’s complete profile will convey who she is. What is she good at and bad at, what she doesn’t like and does like, what her career goal is, and what her hobby is. She is trying her best to let her classmates and people to know more about her. Her overall life would never live without anime and manga. She’ll be glad if she got a chance to go to Japan, so she could visit the place where Japanese anime produced and met with those amazing manga artists. Jingyi wishes she could visit there in the near future.
