Look at this little dude! He’s so boring! Only boring people are bored. And he is a bored student, an illustration I made for a written report. Because I like to make extra work for myself, to go with the assignments for my online Adult Learning classes. It’s like bonus learning!
Having been hired (at least temporarily) and spending much of my time at work or dabbling in a million other summertime activities, I haven’t had much chance to get any other serious work in. Hoping to turn that around now that I’ve adjusted to my schedule. I have some projects I’m really looking forward to working on, but for now, here’s some super-quick illustrations I did for my online Adult Learning & Staff Training certificate course.
These were just meant to illustrate the three topics of my final reflective report for the first course of the program. Fortunately for me, the course allowed you to be a bit creative in the presentation of your report — that is, not making it a firm requirement to stick to size 12 Times New Roman or anything like that — so I chose to include some hasty & playful artwork.
Phew! After a few days working on my demo course, it’s almost done! All the content and functionality is now in place. The only thing left to do is to add a little animation, just to make some of the screens more dynamic.
I’m determined to finish that tonight! For now, you can take a look at the teeny thumbnails in my Captivate filmstrip view.
When I went to school at Humber, we shared a building with a few culinary classrooms. The chefs-in-training had checkered pants as part of their uniform, so I guess there’s some reason for that?
Anyway, here’s teeny Chef Tony. He’s got his regulation checkered pants and everything!
I’ll be using him in a demo training course I’m making to show my abilities with e-learning authoring tools like Adobe Captivate and Articulate Storyline. More screenshots from that as I progress along.
Finished off work on my new portfolio! I printed out a couple of copies at Staples last night. They don’t do custom papers there (I had wanted to use something heavier, and more matte) but I don’t mind the way it came out on their ‘linen look’ paper. It’s nice to touch, and the little goldfinch looks pretty cute there.
I was a little disappointed that they no longer have white plastic for cerlox binding. I went with the black instead, but the coil came out a little looser than I would have liked — I’ve done lots of binding before, and they can usually get it tighter than that. Well, as long as you’re not binding two encyclopedias together. I’ve seen some people try doing just about that.
In order to protect the IP of my past clients, I won’t be releasing my portfolio online. But feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like me to send you a copy directly.
