Doodle Daze
May 9, 2008

So, quiet week, eh? Perhaps on the blog, but certainly not life this week! I had another job interview Monday - my favourite kind, we talked for a bit and then Tuesday, I was emailed an assignment to complete. The catch was I had 48 hours to design, cut, and code a website of approximately four pages. They wanted to see creativity, use of colour, movement and sound. In 48 hours. Design a site look, cut the images apart and optimize them. Build at least one Flash piece - design, code. Put Flash into a page. Code all the pages. Write a rationale for the choices made and insert that on the pages. Cut a small sound byte to use in another Flash piece to demo sound. Forty-eight hours. Not a week of work, but nearly a week's worth of work in two days.

I was busy this week, working feverishly from Tuesday morning straight through until Thursday morning - and then attempting sleep and some finesse work later Thursday.

So, this week is also Doodle Week according to my bud, Claire. She's designated various days with various kinds of doodles, and while Animal Doodle day isn't until tomorrow, that's what I have to show today.

These are all sketch versions of images I'll be using in the baby book I'm painstakingly doing by hand para mi sobrino.

Good luck! That's called a "Performance Assessment" in the teacher world. It allows you to "show what you know." I like it. Do you?

I like your sneaky croc (alligator?)
I hope your assignment turn out alright! 48 hours is not a lot of time for that amount of work. Good luck! :)

If this site is any indication, I'm sure you did great for the interview. And those are some cool drawings!
