For our other collaborative assignment we did the “Most Wanted” assignment. Lilah and Rex have been partners in crime, except this time, Rex and Lilah got caught, at least Rex did. And now the word is out and Rex is in trouble. Lilah sees this and splits, waning to save her own skin.
I found this poster template off of Google, and uploaded it to Pixlr. We used twitter to communicate, and Patrick found the picture and emailed it to me to use for the poster. So apparently that’s what Rex looks like. The place for the picture in the poster didn’t fit with the picture I was given, so I used the clone stamp tool to recreate the pattern on the poster and age the writing to blend in with the rest of the poster. I then emailed it to Patrick for him to use in his post.
The sketch filter always makes the subject almost unrecognizable. The focus suddenly becomes 2-D instead of 3-D and it looses the shadows and highlights of the normal camera.
Essentials for Delilah’s life are identified as followed. Her clutch, EOS, gum, collection of lotions, Moroccan Oil for her hair, a bottle of Advil, and her inhaler. Each item has a story. Her clutch was bought for her by her boyfriend on their first vacation, cause she was going over-seas and needed something small and compact. That’s also where her EOS and various lotions came from, when her and her boyfriend had Christmas together, those were the stocking stuffers. The Moroccan Oil came from her best friend who was clearing her room to move to Alaska (she also needs it for her infamously unruly hair). The inhaler she’s needed since she was about 14, when she finally had access to a doctor and was diagnosed with Asthma. She’s basically grown out if it, but that inhaler saved her life a couple of times, so she still keeps it around. The Advil, well when she was going in to get her GED, she had some Advil on her and they confiscated it and almost kicked her off the school premise. She kept bringing it anyways, just hiding it better, and so she got in the habit of always having it on her. It reminds her, in her adult years of her little acts of rebellion as a teenager, and she looks back with fondness. Now for the bag its self. The wife of the man who owned the ranch she worked at, nicknamed Stormy, did a ton of missions work in Africa. Stormy established a library in an underdeveloped town, and had partnered with a local out reach. This out reach started a program that taught the families to make handbags, and various other trinkets, and sell them as a small income, instead of living in and accepting their poverty. Well Stormy got permission to bring back some bags, accessories, and trinkets and sell them in America. The funding’s would be funneled back to the program and families. And that’s Delilah
Delilah’s favorite story to read as a preteen into teenage years was Alice in Wonderland. The story appealed to her because Alice and her were in similar situations. They both were thrown into new world and both had a monster to slay (although at the time, Delilah would much rather slay a Jabberwocky than study). I’m imagining Delilah imagining her own rabbit hole to fall into, and I like to think this is what she’d imagine.
Night out in town… “Love is the flower. You gotta let it grow”
This post is dedicated to Delilah Valentine, my character for my semester. It explains what hippotherapy is, and if my character was to be played by any actress/performer, it’d be Taylor swift (as long as she dyed her hair black and kept it natural). Delilah’s story is a simple one. She’s a Spanish-American gypsy who spent her childhood traveling the plains of Iowa. At 15, she was exiled from the gypsy community because of her faith, and spent the rest of her teenage years working at a horse ranch and getting her education. She graduated from UI and used her horse background to become a hippotherapist (a therapist who uses horses to help aid in therapy with the mentally disabled)
