In addition to Photoshop, I take another class at ABC Adult School. It is called Adobe Illustrator CS5 Part 2 and I take it in the afternoon. The teacher is Nabawia el-Soudani Olivera.
In this class, my final assignment is to assemble selected works that I have done and place them in a portfolio. This is similar to what I have done with some of my Adobe Photoshop works on this blog.
The first thing I will present is the cover of the DVD to the mythical "reality television" series Gone Barefoot. I placed my "family photo" as an overlay wrapping around both the front and back covers. The front is the show's logo and the back is a brief description of the program and some of the main characters.
Up next is a brochure promoting the farm my "second family" owns in rural North Carolina. It includes a brief description of all 13 clan members, another panel describing what is on the farm, as well as contact information.
Some time ago, I posted Jennifer's "business card." One of the Part 2 assignments was to build eight different versions of the card as part of a bigger identity package. The other part (not shown) includes another business card, a letterhead, and an envelope.
Finally, there is an "ad" for donations to the Bluebird Fund, the charity that Brenda founded. I wrote about an aborted telethon it had in this post.
It has been a pleasure taking these classes at ABC Adult School. Hopefully, this summer will find me with a new job, ideally in an office setting in a hospital or clinic. If not, I would love to come back and be a student again there next fall.
