Dela would you like us to post our ideas and drawings here daily or should we leave this blog mostly for group announcements and post our personal stuff on our own blogs?
Lots of the SJSU students already have blog pages, which I have linked to on my blogpage http://cmarsartist.blogspot.com/ if you haven't seen them already. This goes out to anyone on the list: If you have a personal website or online portfolio, please share it with us. My portfolio is http://clairemarshal.googlepages.com/ You can see my art as well as all my lecture notes from past SJSU guests and staff.
Looking forward to a great semester!
I have sent out an invite to the students in the class so you can all post on this blog. I'd should be very simple to sing up, especially if you already have a blog. If not and there are any problems we can touch on it in class.

Imagine you are an Imagineer who has been hired to create a new and amazing miniature golf course that will be the centerpiece of a new themed resort.
Your job, using the design process, is to create a single hole for this miniature golf course based on a specific theme. Being themed, this golf course can take on a variety of directions. The direction you chose to take can be fun and ridiculous, scary, or serious in tone. Remember to explore multiple ideas within your given theme.
Some things I will be looking for,
The design of the surrounding environment. Think of the path or paths the player needs to take in order to complete the hole. There can be more than one.
Articulated moving parts, this can be merely a visual aspect or a functional aspect of the players experience.
Keep in mind this will be viewed during night and day time, the design should hold up for both times.
Include 2D patterns and designs based on your theme.

He thus does not paint men, landscape, or furniture,
but an idea.”
