Adding Video/Scribd Presentation Practice Post

After our Blogger FAQ's today, I decided to go along with what Phil suggested and practice embedding a video and making/embedding a Scribd presentation to my Blogger. I am slightly worried that my blog might too much of a 'theme' which was mentioned today. If anyone who reads this could leave a comment letting me know what they think I'd appreciate it. If my blog seems to have too strong of a theme I'll redesign it. The current design has to do with my sister's artwork so to me it isn't a specific theme but I know other people might see it differently.

Anyway, I found this animation 'Vagabond' a few months ago and really enjoyed it so I chose to share it since 'Steadyfast Stanley' was already posted on the main CAA blog. 

I also liked how my Scribd presentation turned out of my Summer Project. I admit I could have rearranged the thumbnails in a better way but since this is just a practice post I didn't want to drive myself mad with making it perfect.

I'm very excited to start our first project on Monday, I've begun reading about the 'Invisible Cities' and a lot of them sound very interesting. I'm looking forward to learning more about the project on Friday and getting some advice from people who are on this course/have graduated.


  1. Hi Deanna!
    My name is Emily, I'm a recently graduated CAA student and I will be your mentor for the next few weeks!! :D I am super impressed with your artwork so far. Its great to see you taking straight to blogging (though it sounds like you're a seasoned veteran!) And your summer project thumbnails were really inventive. I'm particularly in love with your light bulb bug! Its great to see so much enthusiasm in your work and blog writing. I look forward to seeing your designs for Invisible cities! I think you're going to have a blast!

    If you ever want to ask me any questions about the course feel free to email me anytime!
    Otherwise I shall be perusing the blogs and catching up in comments! See you around!!

    1. Thanks! I really appreciate that and any future guidance you give me. I'm sure I'll be annoying you with a lot of questions and requests for advice. I'm very excited to begin this course and it makes me happy that it reflects in my work. I saw you post a few Speedpaint Challenges over the summer, I really liked them especially The Masque of The Red Death. Also sorry about posting twice...I meant to edit it but it wouldn't let me so I deleted it instead.
