The Work Itself
This assignment is titled “Your Favorite Teams Mashup“, its instructions are to “combine the logos of two or more of your favorite sports teams. Don’t just create an image with the two logos next to each other! Make the final logo look natural and cohesive.” It is currently rated 3.5 stars for difficulty. I mashed up the Oilers logo, Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket, and Falcons logo together. Here it is on my flickr.
The Story Behind The Story
In this case, the yellow jacket is prey for the falcon. To observe the land better and for hunting purposes, the falcon likes to perch atop tall places and see what is below. The falcon finds a oil rig tower (oilers logo) and sits on top until it sees its prey. Eventually the falcon spots a yellow jacket, the falcon swoops on top of it, and grabs it with its talons. It brings the prey back to the oil tower, where the falcon will eat the yellow jacket. I chose these logos because I wanted to make it as realistic as possible and as relatable to nature as possible.
The Process, Narrated
I googled searched an image of the “Oilers”, “Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket”, and “Falcons logo”. I then opened up Pixlr Editor. I inserted each image as a “layer” into from my desktop into Pixlr Editor. I then used the shaping/cropping tool to position and either minimize or enlarge the photos as I desired. I used the paint bucket tool to fill in the background color all white. I horizontally flipped the yellow jacket so it would be facing away from the falcon. In this position the yellow jacket appears dead or more so than if it were facing towards the falcon. Here a few photos to document my process.
