Eleshaq Tutorial

I decided to do a tutorial for the assignment where you paste someone’s head on an animal body. I did this screencast tour and showed people how to do this via PowerPoint for those who, like me, aren’t proficient in design programs like Photoshop. This isn’t as neat or professional looking, but it gets the job done. Here’s my final product for the image: Image

What’s in a Name?


I choose this assignment because it reminds me of a sixth grade project I had to do. We had to research the meaning of our name and present it in a creative way. Since I’m over the top, I created a rap and a diorama of a countryside with a lamb standing by a fence. So I thought I’d share the rap.

My name is Rachel, that’s who I am

Last name means arrow maker, first means lamb

My name’s traditional

It’s also biblical

My father named me, even though it isn’t clear

He named me after a female engineer

I want to be a writer and set a positive mark

Being an award winning writer and a top selling designer

And a great influence for ALL minors

My name is Rachel

My name means lamb

And this is my jam so you know who I am

Design Assignments: Eleshaq

I choose to do this design assignment so I could mix humor with intentionality. This assignment asks people to paste someone’s head on an animal body or vice versa. I choose an elephant and Shaquille O’Neal not just because I love elephants, but also because the image still has meaning. For some ordinary sized people, someone massive like Shaq charging towards them with this face could be comparable to an elephant charging. I used PowerPoint to fuse the two images into one.Image
