The Rotten Lemon of Enlightenment


RE: Famous on the Interwebs

I have been getting a lot of feed back from my Famous on the Interweb post. It also seems to be getting the most traffic on the blog with about 14 hits a day. So I thought I’d share the back story on that now somewhat infamous picture.

Last year there was a competition to become the face of a new shopping center here in Perth. It was voted on by the public then a winner was selected from the most popular. Along with the photo you had to submit a 25 or less word statement which basically equated to why you thought you were the centre of the universe. My statement was “see photo for proof of my awesomeness“.

Here is a screenshot from the competition website with myself and some of the contestants.

I am a model

In case you were wondering I didn’t win…

Custom rating system

I customized the rating system for the blog today. I made this image in powerpoint so the stars would be replaced by lemons keeping with the blogs theme. Worked out well!

Lemon rating image

Here is the original image I used to create the image above.

New ratings are as follows;

1 lemon = Kill me now!
2 lemons = Craptastic
3 lemons = Meh…
4 lemons = Sweet
5 lemons = You are a God!

Creative Project #001

The creative process which I have talked about in the post Understanding your creativity: Preparation is being constantly aware of your environment. While categorising this information and applying it to your own ideas and concepts. With this in mind I stumble across this video on another wordpress blog and an idea was born!

What a great way to document the evolution of an idea from concept to final outcome. Or better yet what a great way to illustrate the creative process itself! My creative project might just very well be my own personal creative process come to life in the form of a stop motion animation video. Whether this will be a viable idea I’m not sure but as week three’s lecturer Harman, J. (2011) stated “entertain all ideas” no matter what your initial thoughts and feels are towards it. You never know where it might take you!
