Rachel Linder – City Scape

Changing gears now, one of our projects in Illustrator was to create a city scape. Well here is mine. We were to take an existing picture and redraw it as a vector. I took it one step farther and brought in many, many buildings on a prospective and made it appear that it was a planet looking out over the earth. Kind of a sci-fi, comic book feel to it.

Rachel Linder – Graphically Speaking


Our project was to use music that was 3 to 5 minutes long and create an animation to go with the music. This involved going into Soundbooth and editing the song in just the right way to get the perfect selection. I used Andrew Bird’s music called Something Sinister. He created this sound for a childrens book that his  mother was illustrating. This Flash animation has 4 main scenes and in the first scene the girl is playing the violin and the ginko leaves are twirling with the music. It fades into the next scene where the girl is still playing as a fox lurks behind the trees looking at a Bobwhite.

The scene changes leaving the girl behind and the fox is now chasing the Bobwhite through the forest trying to catch his supper. The last scene shows the bird under the foxes foot as his face fades from normal into a sinister looking skull. The last scene fades to black with THE END and a REPLAY button to start the process all over again.
