Assignment: Cropped Signs

Original Assignment Description: We think of creation as addition, but there is a form of creation by deletion (e.g. Newspaper Blackout poetry http://newspaperblackout.com/) In this assignment, you need to change, alter, enhance the meaning of a sign by cropping out parts of it. This should be doing in camera, but could also be done in post- crop out, but do not photoshop in any extras. Also, be sure to describe in you caption or blog post what the original sign said.

Remix: Urban Dictionary defines “mustache” as: “A universal icon representing the epitome of authority and raw manhood… Resting just above the upper lip, the mustache is a beacon to all mankind that there is hope for this world and a bright future for all who have been gifted with this treasure from God himself.” So you know what do to. Like Beyonce says, “If you like it, then you should put a ‘stache on it.”

Remixed Assignment Description: Photoshop in a mustache as well!!

beware of mustaches

Bolo hat guy: This remix reminded me a lot of the movie Meet the Robinsons.  I’m not sure why, but mustaches make me think of the bolo hat guy from the movie. This assignment was so much fun to me because they’re are so many silly road signs out there.  I really enjoyed making my own. Maybe they will make this an official sign and put it on my street!

I mustache you how you did it: Once again, BeFunky came to the rescue! Oh, how I love this website and the countless things it is able to do. The function I used today was the photo editor. There are so many editing tools that are simpler versions of things you would find on photoshop. With a little playing around, I was able to delete the word “vehicles”, and add the mustache as a layer.  If you would like extra help on how I did this assignment, check out my tutorial here!
