Magazine Cover: Final Product

Magazine Covers

Early magazine covers were rather generic and boring. They extremely rarely included images. Most of it was black text on white paper with a table of contents and whatnot. Later on, towards the late 19th century, poster covers were starting to be used. Poster covers were pretty much just a portrait of something with the magazine title and minimal words to help highlight stories. In the early 20th century the first pictures married to type started to pop up. These were pictures that included most of, if not all of a models body into a cover. This model would normally be covering part of the title of the magazine. Their body would also be surrounded carefully by words. After that came the forest of words. this cover is pretty much covered by words. There's a few places where you can see the image around the subject, but it's mostly covered.

Class Stuffs

If I had to pick one of the classes, it'd probably be Commercial Photography. While I can write and everything, I'd much rather go out and shoot events and whatnot. Plus, it gives me an excuse to get an awesome camera.

I thought this was a cool spread.

This online newspaper is laid out really well

So Blogger quit working with me, so here's another post to finish things up.
Best entertainment story of the year? Easy. Mudhoney Concert With The Riverboat Gamblers. I got to mosh with a chick in a wheelchair! After the show I got to meet Mark Arm. And we just chatted. He was a really chill guy and about as short as my mom. After I talked to him and got him to sign my poster I got I met Mike, the lead singer from the riverboat gamblers. It was awesome. Best concert ever.

1. All I really remember is waking up in a Jiffy Lube parking lot, thinking it was still 2011 on Tuesday. That's all I remember.

2. Not to stress myself out with resolutions.

3. The end of humanity.


This officer sucks. I forgot his name, but he sucks.

This was cool because it's just like some random guy with a guitar during the middle of a war. He's so juxtaposed, it's beautiful.

I just like this because he's showing the police his ass.

Being a music junkie and all, I couldn't just pick a "best song" of 2011. So here's my favorite album of 2011. Really it was hard to pick that even. The Roots' Undun is an album that I've listened to at least 10 times since it's release on October 10th. This is a concept album about a kid who falls into a life of crime, against his moral wishes. The interesting thing here though, is that it's telling the story from death to birth. Hence, becoming undun. It's a solid album 10/10, and is most definitely my favorite rap album of the year, followed closely by Kendrick Lamar's Section 80 and Big K.R.I.T.'s Return of 4eva. I thing my favorite "rock" album would be either WU-LYF's Go Tell Fire to the Mountain, or Andrew Jackson Jihad's Knife Man.
The only movie from this year that I saw that I actually remember was Harry Potter, and it was just meh. So here's the best movie I saw all year. Eraserhead. If you're familiar with this movie, it needs no explanation, and if you're not, there is no explanation.
Occupy Wall Street. This was probably the most exciting news for me, after seeing so much from the London and Vancouver riots, I was begging for some kind of rebellious gathering to come our way.
Wayne Coyne is my person of the year. Why? Because he was the first person to pop in my head. He delivers a good message and just seems like an overall cool guy.
