Serena Epstein has a fun new assignment for ds106 that asks you to illustrate an image from [[T.S. Eliot]]’s poem “The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock” through the medium of your choice. As soon as I saw the assignment a few images jumped out at me such as “Like a patient etherized upon a table” or “Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels.” But, I couldn’t get [[Frank Darabont]]’s film version of The Mist out of my head (maybe because I just finished Season 1 of [[The Walking Dead]]) when thinking about one of the greatest images in that poem that likens the London fog to a cat. So, I took part of that poetic image and tacked it onto this artistic rendering from the film. I love the opportunity to marry a high modernist like Eliot with one of the world’s most popular novelists.
The process on this was dead simple. Found the image I wanted on the net, brought it into Picnik and added the text.
