How Reddit made my wish come true: being a Graphic Designer.

ArtFormula 1Internet Culture

I woke up yesterday feeling creative, wanting to draw something. When I created my template for the 2017 Formula 1 car and uploaded it to reddit’s /r/formula1 subreddit about one and a half months ago, people over there suggested I try my hand at Adobe Illustrator. Well, yesterday morning I thought “hell, lets give it a try”, so I installed an older version of Illustrator (CS6) and looked up a video through google on how to draw in this particular program, giving me this tutorial. I decided I wanted to draw a Formula 1 car, and chose this picture of the 1990 Ferrari 641 (driven at the time by Alain Prost and Nigel Mansell) as a base image for its elegance and simplicity of design, and got to work.

Bethesda No Longer Gives Out Review Copies In Advance. Good.

GamingInternet Culture

The latest drama in the strange world that is video games, is the fact that Bethesda (known for games like Skyrim, Fallout, and the recent Doom) has decided to no longer send out review copies ahead of the launch of their new games (note: just one day in advance).

Allow me to explain. Keep reading

Pokemon Go: Delving into the Statistics of Evolutions

GamingInternet Culture

Pokemon Go is taking the world by storm. I wrote an article about my first experiences with the game a few weeks ago. At the time, I was working on my master’s thesis, which was a quantitative content analysis. I performed that analysis with SPSS, a statistical program created by IBM. I used Pokemon Go to recharge the battery in between sessions, catching loads of pokemon. Mostly Weedles, Pidgeys and Rattata’s. Because I was in a statistical mood due to my thesis, I decided to keep track of evolutions, to see whether I could discover some statistical facts of the hidden mechanics of Pokemon evolution. Even though lots of databases have popped up,  such as Pogotoolkit, I still think my data has value. And here I am, to present my results to you. Keep reading
