Day 38: Iced Troll

Day 38’s assignment was “Work underwater. Fill up a large bowl, vase, or old fish tank with water and create something inside it.”

I’m wary of working with water ever since I drowned my camera during one of these 366 creativity project a month ago. Since it was freezing today I decided to reflect this in my project by making something that I actually would freeze.

I put a troll into a bucket of water and set it outside. I had this image that my project would be reminiscent on Han Solo frozen in carbonite.

 During the night the wind moved my troll around and the morning sun/ warmer temperature’s melted some of the ice. The result wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, but it is interesting. I think might redo this project another day, just so I could get better pictures/ more pictures of what I wanted.  Also, a problem with using trolls is that they always have a smile on their face; Winter sucks! The troll should be frowning!!






Day 42: Why do I trust Merry Maids? (an advertisement)

Day 42’s assigment was: “Turns today’s junk mail into something much more appealing.”

But Day 42 was a Saturday and we didn’t get any good junk mail. I waited a few days for the junk mail to roll in and as I also thought of what I could do for this assignment. Inspiration struck when I was talking with my friend Elena.

Elena suggested I take an ad and transform it into something funny/ make a parody of it. I searched through the junk mail and came across a envelope full of value coupons. One of the coupons inside was an advertisement for a cleaning company.


The picture of the woman looking slightly suicidal seems at odds with the 5  simple reasons why she should love Molly Maid. Elena suggested we change the reasons why to choose this company making it more about oppressing illegal immigrants, rather than the amazing cleaning service you get from this company.

I used Pixlr to make the final image today:


Speaking of Gifs: Laura’s 25 Bday Card

For my sister’s 25th birthday last week I wanted to do something epic.

Originally I had the idea to make her a cake like this:

Tooooo Old!

But then I decided to go with making her the traditional German Chocolate cake and instead have the fabulous Megan Mc make her a Gif Bday Card.


Laura thought it was hilarious! Best. E-Card. Ever. 😀

Thank again Megan! (I now know the pain your suffered for making this) :p
