A Good Sense of Humor January 25, 2010

A Good Sense of Humor…

A good sense of humor

In my avatar, you see me wearing a clown hat (to symbolize my clown like qualities) and am driving a red convertible (I just realized that steering wheel is on the wrong side…hmm; ok let’s assume the avatar is taking place in London). I love driving; it is a passion of mine. All the games I play are racing related, except for the occasional Star Craft (Love it!).

In life I am known as a funny person. I make jokes by the hour; it would actually be very rare for me not to joke in a day, even if they are sarcastic, which most of the time they are. In my avatar I wanted to showcase where I got my ‘sarcastic senses’.  As a kid, I grew up watching the Simpson’s (who didn’t?). I love everything about the television show and could probably quote or refer to any episode (probably…). As most of you probably know Homer Simpson is one of the funniest people (err…cartoon characters…) out there. I honestly can’t watch one episode of the Simpsons without laughing at some kind of joke or stunt Homer does or says.

Second to Simpsons is Friends. Even if it is off the air now (boo), reruns still make me laugh. And like the Simpsons I could probably quote any episode. My favorite character is Chandler, with his dry and funny humor. Also in my very cool thought bubble is Archie. I’m a big Archie fan/collector. I know what you’re thinking, ‘When will he choose between Betty and Veronica?’ well I got news for you guys: I’m thinking the same thing. But it’s still fun collecting them and seeing what kind of trouble Archie and the gang get into each time (I said that sentence for laughs only) So that’s a little bit about me and my good sense of humor.

My name is Jannic Jaeggi and I’m studying Graphic design at OCAD. The avatar I have created for this project is me, blended with the Terminator. This is a representation of my alter ego; in real life I am a procrastinator, not one to accomplish things fast like the Terminator. It is also a darker side of me, for I am generally a peaceful guy.  The background depicts a deserted city; when my alter ego accomplishes something nothing is left unfinished.

Having lived in numerous different places (Switzerland, Australia and Canada), my influences come from wide assortments. It has allowed me to explore different cultures and keep an open mind.

questions? ask away!

Hi everyone!

My name is Magdalena Malik, also known as Megs by friends, and I’m in first year Graphic Design at OCAD. It has been my dream to study at this school since way back! My mom studied here as an Illustrator and graduated. I visited the campus and went to a couple of classes even when I was five years old!  I still remember coloring mickey-mouse picture books during my mother’s lectures…

Even though this journey of art and design has just become, I am eager to find out what the future has in store for me. Hopefully, after graduating from OCAD, I would love to travel and explore the world. I long for the chance to visit unique places, learn about culture and make friendships. As you can see from my avatar, I placed myself in the horizon with a sailors hat and yacht. I adore sailing with my family and friends. The cool breeze makes me feel relaxed and free. Somehow when out there in the water, I feel as if nothing can bring me down. I feel strong. It would be nice to go sailing now, maybe then I wouldn’t be so stressed about course assignment due dates… hehe

I hope everyone learned a little about me!
