Mashups- Lesson 6

I just learned today about Mashups.  It seemed fun.  I made myself a trading card using the Trading Card Maker.  I had some trouble with Earth Album.  I tried clicking Greenland like the instructions directed, yet didn’t get any image of Greenland.   I gave a quick look at the other Mashup programs.  They seem cool, but I’m not sure how I’d use it, unless I was doing a graphic design project. 


About angelolopez

I’ve wanted to be an artist all my life. Since I was a child I’ve drawn on any scrap of paper I could get a hold of. When I went to San Jose State University, I became more exposed to the works of the great fine artists and illustrators. My college paintings were heavily influenced by the humorous illustrations of Peter De Seve, an illustrator for the New Yorker magazine. I also fell under the spell of the great muralists of the 1930s, especially Thomas Hart Benton and Diego Rivera. I graduated with a degree in Illustration. Since my time in college, my goal has been to be a successful children’s book illustrator. I’ve illustrated 3 books: Two Moms the Zark and Me by Johnny Valentine in 1993; Night Travelers by Sue Hill in 1994; and Cherubic Children’s New Classic Story Book Volume 2 for Cherubic Press in 1998. I’ve painted murals for Lester Shields Elementary School in San Jose, the Berryessa branch of the San Jose Public Library, and Grace Community Church in Los Altos. I’ve had a few illustrations published in South Bay Accent Magazine and I will have an illustration published in the January/February issue of Tikkun magazine.

    I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed the lesson. It’s hard to know why Earth Album didn’t work for you, although another participant did note that you must click on the name of the country, not just anywhere within the map of the country for it to work properly. Next time, see if you have better results. Good work!
