E82 U (Part 2) 

OMG, where have I been!? Only two posts in a month? Just Two!
Well, this month’s course load at Full Sail was particularly demanding and labor intensive. The course “Designing Computer Graphics,” might as well be called “The Adobe Illustrator course”. The projects themselves were both challenging and fun. And with this course, I’ve been able to learn a lot more techniques that will certainly benefit E82 in the years to come. As a good practice, I’ve decided to upload all of my projects (good and not-so-good) to my Flickr account. To show range, I’ve decided to venture as far way from Futurism (and Epcot) as possible. Well mostly. Project Two was almost inescapable.

Oh, and while we’re on the subject… With what little time I have, (and thanks to my “Group 5 Access”) I’ve done some digging into some of ENCOM/Epcot’s hidden history and made my first visual discovery from “The Second System.”

American Vistas

When you work for a 365 Company and practically all of your holidays are on a time clock, after a decade or so you start thinking some really weird things. Things like: “I really don’t see myself celebrating Independence Day this year”. But, then I think about all the things that America has given me, and how thankful I am to be born in a country were Dreamers and Doers are celebrated equally. The biggest of all these was Walt Disney, “an American Original” who believe that a technology-driven Unified World of Tomorrow was “just a dream away.” So to celebrate the same spirit that created the Legacy of EPCOT, I’d like to present our first VISTA from across the lagoon.

Designers Note: Usually I can’t tell how long I work on these, but considering I Started the whole process last minute at less than 48 hours ago I can say it took 18 hours to work on this one. (12 hours alone just to Vectorize the Pavilion!) And Yes, there are exactly 50 stars in the widescreen version.

 

To All People of All Nations
Happy Independence Day!

 

"TOMORROW will be better for as long as America keeps alive the ideals of freedom and a better life… What I will say now is just what most of us are probably thinking every day. I thank GOD and AMERICA for the right to live and raise my family under the flag of Tolerance, Democracy and Freedom."

-Walt Disney

 

America!
Spread your golden wings
Sail on freedom's wind, across the sky!
