Where did the inspiration images come from?
The two gifs featured in the introduction come from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. It's a terrible title but OH MY GOD HAVE YOU SEEN THAT MOVIE? WHAT A WORK OF ART.
We don’t know where this image comes from! It’s a photo of kids in 1960s Harlem, New York, playing basketball on unicycles.
The image in the checkpoint piece comes from Park Pyeongjun, an illustrator from Korea.
For the first example rewrite, we were looking at this photo from Tumblr user 573P5 who is a Moscow street photographer.
For the second example, we were looking at this photo from Greg Girard, a pretty famous photographer who does documentary photos of Asian cities. This photo was taken in the Walled City of Kowloon, a truly crazy place that used to exist in Hong Kong. It's worth looking up!
That's it for this lesson. See you next time!
