The Good News: Kyle W. and Chris C. finally found a way to connect the iPad to the internet. They used a recently bought app that Skocko got so we could set up a wireless connection somehow. Their first step was trying to connect the iPad to the iMac. They first tried setting up an FTp server which was a dud but then they found a type of server that worked. They messed around some more especially in the network/sharing settings and enabled internet sharing which finally connected the iPad wirelessly to the internet. It proved succesful as we could move around files back and forth and use Safari on it as well.
The Bad News: We could only connect to one computer at a time so we still don’t know how to connect all of the computers at once.
4/13/10: I’m working on creating the website for the Valhalla yearbook and I already have the site up and running with the favicon made so all I have to finish is to put up some information about the yearbook.
4/12/10: I been working more on the Mac Lab Media logo than any other thing so far. I plant to finish it soon and this picture is just a WIP(work-in-progress). It is supposed to be the cover for the soon-to-be-published MacLab book. I plant to add the phrase “Where new media artist are born” followed by the author’s name.
The iPad team(currently Kyle W. and Chris C.) are working to make our test iBook functional. So far they have failed to upload a short flash animation that works when you get to the page its on. I want to help them soon after I finish the cover and also after I make the website for the Valhalla yearbook which people are bugging me about.
Also, I just went to Adobe’s website and checked out the new features in Illustrator CS5 and I gotta say it’s pretty wild. I can’t wait to try it out.
After a long and arduous task, I have fix the alignment of these boxes in my second self-portrait. Tomorrow, I hope this self-portrait and my other one get printed and put on the Wall of Fame.
Update: Christian L. and Phillip B. have decided they wanted to help me with my illustration so I have given them the file and told them specific tasks they should do. Let’s hope everything goes good and that the Illustration will turn out great.
12/27/10: I finally got my two self-portraits printed and put on the wall which makes 4 of my things that got put on the wall(6 if you include the two copies of my earlier work). I might also get my frog and clock printed…sweet. Well can’t talk much cause I got to study so see you for now. PS: I might put up a Blend Tool Tip very soon.
Finals just reared its head but I did fairly good on my presentation in my Digital Arts class (period 5) and 3D animation class (period 7). I had all that I needed to present (logos, posters, etc.) and I stuck to what my plan was in the beginning of the year where I said I was going to get more skilled in Photoshop, After Effects, Cinema 4D, and-last but not least-Unity 3D(free). I will try to get better as time breezes through the doors of the Mac Lab. Since of the unruly final’s schedule, I will resume work in the Mac Lab wednesday. That’s it for now, keep checking the blog!
Update: To get my second self-portrait printed on the wall, I have to resize and move 520 of these “boxes” individually including the compound path (gradient background) as well. So…much…work.
Today I have created this blog with the advice of Skocko to have my work displayed and reflected upon as I continue to produce my artwork and enhance my art style. This place will be my storage for inspiration, illustrations, and information that I hope you check everyday or in a while. I promised to keep updating this blog as I go so from now on, you’ll be see more and more fun designs and projects.
