Floating Umbrella

Floating Umbrella

Umbrella art? This daily create would have been cooler if it was pool stick art!! But anyways here is another photoshop creation. Everything you see here was created from different photos. There are five photos in this picture total to create this umbrella art. Here are the original photos:

And then of course I had a picture of me. I masked everything together in photoshop. Gotta love the masking tool.



For this daily create I had to edit a photo of Noddy being saved. But first I have a couple of questions 1. Who the heck is Noddy? I’ve never heard of this little dude. And 2. Who throws a perfectly good doll in the trash? Maybe the person who threw it away didn’t know who Noddy was either. But anyways here is what I came up with:


I edited everything in photoshop. First I downloaded the original image of Noddy in the trash. I cropped his body out and then added him into a different dumpster (waste management dumpster, of course). Then I had that to a picture of a crane and masked it so it looked like the crane was lifting Noddy out of the trash. #freeNoddy



Johnny here. Man oh man this week definitely made me remember why I quit high school a few years back. So since I’m taking this thing over from now on does that mean I’ll get a college degree out of this without a high school degree? That would be pretty cool. I don’t need it though since I’ll be making it big in vegas in pool and gambling. Vegas baby!!! But anyways here is what I did…

This week I started off with an Interview. I don’t like interviews but I gave in for this once since Groom made a Monty Python reference.

Next, I decided to ride solo for the agency. Not much to that post but you can find it here.

I did three daily creates this week. They were easy as One. Two. Three. Bada boom bada bing!

I also commented on 10 posts this week.











And lastly I give an update on our video progress. Luckily the professors were generous enough to give us an extension because meeting as a group was nearly impossible for us this week. It can be found here.

Thats all folks. See ya next week.

Inside Talking Update

Week 2 on our video and we encountered a small problem. We were supposed to shoot the video this week but none of us could meet up this week to finish the task. Weddings, work, internships, classes, and varsity sports practices and Johnny’s pool tournaments all got in our way this week. Luckily for us, the kind agents (professors) gave us an extension on this project. We are filming the video tonight and will be editing it over the next few days. We already have our script ready so things should be smooth sailing from here! But all good things are worth waiting for (except Lil Wayne’s mixtapes but that’s another story). Thanks again for the extension professors!

We are sorry for the inconvenience and we look forward to posting our final video


The Inside Talking Team



For this daily create I had to make tree art. Who the heck makes tree art when you could be playing pool??? anyways, as a kid I had always liked to catch stuff on fire. So I found this picture and wanted it to catch on fire as well. So as always, I put the picture in photoshop, added a new layer and used a gradient tool for the new layer. I chose a three color gradient and used yellow, orange, and red. I chose to put the yellow in the corner to also look like a sunset. Once the gradient was in place, I lowered the opacity to blend in the with the original tree picture.

Here is the original picture:




Johnny Corner Pocket doesn’t like Interviews

Ever since I went on the radio show and met the love of my life and then lost the love of my life within 15 minutes, I haven’t been the same. I can’t get that memory out of my head. I hate interviews now because of it. Luckily for Groom, I decided to answer some of his questions. I didn’t answer all of them but here are the seven I did answer. Enjoy.

List of questions answered:

  1. What is your name?
  2. What is your quest?
  3. What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
  4. Do you believe in God?
  5. Have you ever cheated on a lover?
  6. Have you ever been found guilty of a crime?
  7. Have you ever killed someone?

Zebra+Fingerprint=Zebra Print

Zebra + Fingerprint= Zebra Print

For this daily create, they were trying to get me to make art around my fingerprint. Do you think Corner Pocket is that stupid to put his fingerprint on the internet for everyone to see?? Heck no, so here’s what I did. I found some scrub’s fingerprint on the internet. It reminded me of a zebra print so I decided to add a zebra head to the fingerprint. I put the two pictures in photoshop. I used a masking tool for the picture of the zebra to make the picture only fill in the fingerprint. I then turned down the opacity of the zebra to make the two pictures come together as one. I like the way it turned out. Johnny Corner Pocket out.


Life Matters

Corner Pocket here, I don’t know why I’m stuck doing this assignment, I quit school awhile back… But anyways, for this daily create I had  to create a words of wisdom inspirational poster. Usually I would say something like “get money, get paid” but I’m trying to win my girl Lena Meyers back from El Jota so I decided to do something cheesy. So I went with “life only matters, when you do something that matters.”

Life Matters

Besides playing pool, I know thing or two about photoshop. I found this picture of the water in Wilmington, NC (great place, I won a lot of money at a bar there one time) and used the text tool to add the text in. I then lowered the opacity of the text just a little bit to have it blend in with the background some.

P.S. Lena, if you are seeing this…come back to me!!
