During my 2nd to last week of college at ETSU, I was in the print lab getting ready to hand in some stuff for Typography. It was semi-bittersweet; I wanted out of school because it felt like I was just being stuck there and not accomplishing a whole bunch, but I loved how it felt being late spring and having a bit of roam in the print lab. I happened to look out the window and saw how nice the yard looked outside, and decided to grab a shot. You can see a bit of me in the mirror in the lower right corner.
This was Ball Hall for those who was curious, 2nd floor I believe. I think this is looking north towards the big yard in front of Ball and Sam Wilson.
When leaving a student counseling session one day, I wasn’t in too much of a hurry to get back to where I had parked, which should be the lot seen here. I then realized there was a pretty good view of the superstructure of the parking garage, and decided to get a shot for posterity.
That particular month for me was real stressful, so the sight plus the nice weather was welcome.
Was lounging around in my apartment one night, watching BBC on my TV via my laptop (yep, that’s how I entertain myself!). I often kept my die-cast Space Shuttle as an end-table decoration, especially since it was recently acquired in my trip to the space center in Florida.
Either rate, I had glanced over to grab a swig of ginger ale and saw this. Obviously I recognized that refraction was going on, but somehow I got it in my head that the shuttle was “drunk”, and found it hilarious before taking the picture.
As a reminder, I don’t drink. I’m someone who calls building lobbies “airlocks” and would spam Japanese emojis on forms to the local Tennessean population, much to my amusement. That’s just how my head works.
The byproduct of pulling almost-all-nighters with classwork? Eating cereal at 3PM in the afternoon when you wake up.
I always mix the copycat Captain Crunch Cereal with something else, usually like bran flakes or in this case, rice crispers. At least I’m not getting a whole bowl of sugar that way, and some more nutrition and bran is added to my diet.
This isn’t the first time I’ve seen this vehicle here. I don’t know who it belongs to or why someone from the Bristol Motor Speedway is at the Millenium center, but it was an interesting sight if anything else. Luckily for me I snapped a picture of it before heading home.
It’s only recently I’ve started to take pictures of the markerboards in the DIGM lab. I’ll definitely be doing more of these, as there’s a lot of interesting things to be seen here.
While I was gone for a few days, I had left a rough doodle of the Tomcatters squadron. When I came back, I was greeted by all this nonsense. Most of them are people complaining about render times, but there’s a Dalek and a few other things mixed in there. You’ll even see a Reddit upvote/downvote arrow there.
Here’s how my Vector project is coming along so far. Got to use the Cintiq with some spiffy brushes; looks great, don’t you think? Spent quite a bit of time on the ship itself. I’m real glad how it’s turning out!
This is a project I cooked up while in my first DIGM class of the year at ETSU. It was a storytelling sequence in which we had to add sound effects and other things like voice acting, and tell a story in 3 minutes roughly. This was my project. It was a freelancer and a couple of his friends who are hired to return a ship Navigator along with a combat droid to a docked starship. Got criticized that this was more movie like but I guess I can’t win them all. Got a good grade, so that counts.
Little did I know this would be one of the cornerstones for developing Dawnstar as time went on. My characters would morph into more original versions and veer off into something that I would be pleased with. It’s interesting to look back and see how far it’s come from simple sketches and this storyboard concept, even.
I always pass something of this sort when going through ETSU, but this is the first time I saw it in an open space that wasn’t a classroom building. Sounds like there was a fun party going on, not much to say otherwise.
When I was hanging out with my friend at Sherrod library, we found this random carrot half-stuck in the trash can on the way out. And this wasn’t a small carrot either; this was like a 1-foot kind in the big bags in the produce section.
Both of us were definitely baffled, and she couldn’t figure out why someone had a carrot in there in the first place. Third floor I believe.
