Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Film Society and gay straight alliance organization at my university are putting together a Rocky Horror Picture Show performance and asked me to design the poster for them as marketing chair for the gay straight alliance organization. Below is what I whipped up in three hours yesterday after I ran out of things to do at my grandparents’ house (which is where I am spending my Thanksgiving). They are 92 years old, so there isn’t much to do in general. I’m stealing a very weak internet signal from someone living around them who hasn’t quite caught on to locking their wifi. Praise the Lord!¬†

On a tangent, I got to ride a train for the first time coming to visit my grandparents. I decided not to go through the hassle of flying home to see my parents since I only have a week off and am flying home in a month for Christmas. I’m pretty sure the girl sitting next to me thought I was a nutter because I wasn’t exactly sure what I was doing or where I was suppose to go, so I was tweaking a bit to put it lightly. It also didn’t help that my boyfriend sent me a text that made me burst out laughing in the middle of the trip. So, yeah, just another person in the world who now thinks I’m not quite all there. The list is becoming quite extensive.¬†Image

Evolution

I just recently got back from a family reunion at Hilton Head, which is why I haven’t been posting anything recently. At my family reunion, my cousin, Alex, asked if I could create some sort of graphic for his new band called A Brilliant Idea (I think). Originally, he asked for a hippo with a lightbulb over its head but then revised it to anything with a lightbulb over its head, so I decided to exercise creative freedom and take a more edgy route. I was inspired by a conversation I had with Alex and another one of my cousins Olivia, an 8-year-old girl, about evolution. Olivia has been raised to believe in creationism and to think evolution is a load of bullshit. Personally, I am Roman Catholic, and I do have a belief in some form of higher power; however, to not believe in evolution is just ridiculous (in my opinion). But, I didn’t want to get in an argument with an 8-year-old girl who is only repeating what her parents have taught her and have her parents’ wrath directed at me for teaching their child “lies” created by atheists to take them down the path of the devil. I was already suffering through enough quality family time. Anyway, below is the graphic I created for him playing with the band’s name and evolution merely being a “brilliant¬†idea“.
