The Many Faces of Cory- Remixing the “Post-Photographic Portrait”

April 28, 2013

For this assignment, I was not sure what I really wanted to do. So I picked the photo with a ton of faces on it, and decided, hey I would think about it while I have it open on GIMP.

Nope, GIMP decided to not work for me.

So, after trying to open the program for about 10 minutes, I gave up. I decided to go back to my trusted Pixlr site. Thankfully, Pixlr has a ton of widgets and tools I was able to use for this assignment.

Okay, so for my inspiration behind my remix, I thought the concept behind Pirate Cinema was super cool and scary. And then I thought, how could someone be banned from using the internet? If you have to log-in through a username, can’t you just create a new account/be under a different identity? I feel like that’s what most people do if they get banned from a website for breaking rules and such (I had a friend get banned from Neopets when we were younger, and had to get a completely different username and start over with nothing).

So with the photo with multiple faces, I decided to change up each one of them, and make them into “Wanted” posters. Here is my photo:

I actually had a lot of fun making the different disguises. It was difficult since I’m not used to drawing with a computer. Maybe I’ll get one of those nifty little drawing pads that you can connect to computers? But I feel like it would be a giant waste of money for me since I’m awful at drawing…

Anyways, hope you enjoy my remix!
