This assignment really peaked my interest. I’ve always lived by a motto that is very special to me: “Day By Day”. Most of my personality is really centered around this idea. When I wake up every day, I have until midnight to worry about. I deal with the things that I can in that amount of time. I need not stress about something happening days or months from now. If you are stressing out, start with what you can do now until the end of the day. Then start it up again tomorrow. So for this assignment, I chose to use that as my tattoo. I went online and looked for a font that I like. I picked the one called Absolute. I liked the flowing nature of it while at the same time being bold with the lines. This is what I would get if it was a tattoo.
Next I added another layer in Photoshop and tried out some different colored backgrounds and the result is pretty interesting. The red one adds a edge to it. It makes it rather dark and mysterious. The blue makes it very calming and peaceful. The green is bright and cheerful. And finally the black has almost an adverse effect to the original image. It is overwhelmingly dark and really isn’t very upbringing.
Overall, this was a very fun assignment. And who knows, maybe I’ll have to head downtown to Sorry Mom and get this one done!
