My series of 3 project will be based on the concept of "life in bangkok". Most the Bangkok images that I have are from personal photos, books, and newspapers that depict ordinary people. I want the series of three images to show what life is like in Bangkok for the average Thai person. Here is the progress so far on my first image. I still have a lot more to do, and I'm not quite sure if I want to keep the background. The second image will be based on traffic and urban scenes, and I am still working on figuring out what to do with the last image.

I'm still working Project 6 but, the problem that I'm having is narrowing the images down to 3. I have 6 images that could work but I'm still not sure what combination that I'll use. As soon as I choose which 3 photos work best I'll post my progress. In the meantime, when I wasn't working on project 6, I was finishing up the second version of my playing card. I wanted the second version of my playing card to have a story, and the story that I choose to use is "Queen of Heartbreak".

For this project, I am going to take everyday objects and make them look different. I will either use photographs and replace the images in the photograph with objects, or I will change how the objects look. All three of the pictures will relate because I want to use the same area for the background. I want this project to look more realistic because, I haven't done a realistic project yet and that is something that I would like to learn before this course is over. I am not sure what background or objects that I am going to use so, I will start taking photographs and use the images that I like the most.

Right now I am working on my playing card design. I decided to use a traditional jack in the box joker card design. Instead of having a joker in the box, I want to replace the joker with a different figure. I'm not sure what figure I want to use yet so, I am working on the box and the background. I'll try to put up a post as soon as I'm done.

Our next project is to design fictitious playing cards 12x16' in Illustrator. This project will be a lot more challenging because I am not familiar with Illustrator and, the characters used have to be fictitious. I originally wanted to have a political or historic themed playing card using photographs. Intricate designs are probably not appropriate for this project so, I have to draw up some thumbnails of possible playing cards.
