This is project was nice change. This what I enjoy. Making projects by hand than digital. If the hold semester was like this I enjoy it more. But I have to try something new for one. And thats what this courses was trying to teach me. To get me out of my comfort zone. Trying to challenge me and make me a better artist. Art would boring if t to easy. So I appreciate this class for that.

Phase 1 

Phase 2

Phase 3



Phase 3: Develop

This is my Glossument Cover. I’m very proud of how this turn out. It reminds me of a old cook book. The blue is desaturated while the orange and purple are bright and makes the stripes pop out. I was going for a mid-evil feel with the letters in the middle and the birds at the top. I first started pastels but the pastels kept peeling off so I decided to paint the book. Best decision I made.

This took about 2 hours.

My Glossarry Entries


Doing the glossary a not difficult to commit also wasn’t very time consuming, so that was good as well. The glossary assignment was very beneficial for me and I’m sure everyone else in my English class. With the Glossary, I was able to do many things. The glossary helped me add a bunch of fresh new words into my personal glossary of words I have mentally stored in my mind. The glossary was very useful in that it allowed people to share words that some may or may not know. It allowed students to view these words, try and comprehend the meaning of these words, and store them in their mental glossary themselves. The glossary was also a major help when it came to looking for more words. The glossary was very useful when we needed to find some words to use, words that fit the team of our glossument project. I’m sure like me, other students in my class had to look for some words that followed the theme of their glossument book. Since the glossary is shared with every student, we had access to words that fit our theme. The Glossary made it feel as though everyone in the class was working together, helping each student complete their project. It felt as though it was a group assignment, fellow students uniting working together as one. That to me was the best thing the project brought to the table. This was very beneficial, it helped each student finish what was probably the most major project given to us this semester, given the fact that it took us all the whole semester and we were basically preparing to complete this project from the start.






















1: one that fits together with the structural members of ships and puts them into position for riveting or welding

2: a naval enlisted man who works in sheet metal and performs the work of a plumber aboard ship

The word was found in the¬†passage, ” Reading Lucy” by Jennifer Egan. In the passage, the¬†author writes, ” Lucy described herself as a shipfitter 3/c, meaning third class, ( buzz: soon to be 2/c I think, ” she told Alfred¬†in June) and she often seemed to have the aid of a “helper,” also female.

In the sentence, the author explains above that lucy i a third class shipfitter, soon to be second class. A shipfitter a marine occupational classification used both by naval activities and among ship builders.

This word as found in the passage ” Brooklyn Was Mine”, by Chris Knutsen¬†and Valerie Steiker. In the sentence in which the word was found in, the author writes, ” I already knew the outcome of this debate from the biographical note accompanying the letter: Lucy would follow Alfred Del Monte and work as a waitress.”

The describes a note as biographical, meaning that this note most likely contains biographic description inside dealing with a particular person’s life.

The author uses the word raucous is used to describe Lucy’s writing voice as loud and harsh.

    • sodium bicarbonate.

In the sentence in which the word was found in, the author writes, As she prattled to Alfred about bicycling¬†in Prospect Park or rubbing bicarbonate¬†of soda on the sunburn¬†she’d gotten on a trip to Coney Island¬†with his girlfriend, it would cross my mind that I knew the time¬†and place of the eath that awaited her.






(1) : painfully affecting the feelings: PIERCING

This word as found in the passage ” Brooklyn Was Mine”, by Chris Knutsen¬†and Valerie Steiker. In the sentence in which the word was found in, it states, “After that, I found Lucy’s letters¬†Poignant in a way that they hadn’t¬†seemed before.

A wealthy or affluent personThe¬†affluents¬†exhibit far less demographic diversity that is exhibited in any of the lower-income segments of the population.‚ÄĒ Pamela N. Danzinger

I found the word¬†affluent in the article “Here, Poverty¬†And Privilege¬†Are Neighbors; Income¬†Gaps Are a source Of Resentment and Guilt.” The sentence in which the word was found states, “The affluent¬†have their own protection.”

The word affluent is another word used to describe the Rich or wealthy. In the sentence, the author talks about how the wealthy can protect themselves by using their money.

I found this word in the article’ “A literary Visitor Strolls in From the Airport” written¬†by Charles¬†McGrath. In the article in which the word was written in, it states “On that note, still striding briskly, he walked down into Manhattan¬†and across little Italy¬†to his hotel, where he freshened¬†up a bit before walking to the National¬†Arts Club that evening for a reception announcing the¬†Inuaugurtion¬†of a writers retreat¬†on the Scottish island of Jura.”

This word was written to talk about a reception announcing a writer into office.
