Visual Assignment #3: Breaking News from 7-11


For my third visual assignment I decided to do Newspaper Blackout Poetry. I’ve been a fan of wordplay for a very long time, especially in comedy; from time to time I like to sit down and come up with palindromes or pick out funny little phrases from writing seen everyday on billboards and cereal boxes.So I took the opportunity to do another little exercise in wordiness with this assignment. http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/newspaper-blackout-poetry/

This breaking news story tells the shocking revelation of convenience store clerks’ desire to be paid more. I think anyone who has worked a service job (particularly a night shift) will relate to the craving of just wanting to cash that paycheck after hours of soul sucking work. And how disappointingly low VA minimum wage is.
