queen of diamonds



I'm trying to do a little bit each morning on this playing card design for Seattle's 'Friends of the Nib' exhibition. But I'm attempting to be a bit experimental with it, so I'm not really sure what I'm doing. Hmm. Any suggestions?

Hey, James Turner just posted a link to this Guardian article about a girl named Charlotte Jones who complained bitterly about the demise of the comic and got to be editor for the day. (James and I were both HUGELY miffed that the Comic ended, and just in the middle of our comics run. Apparently a lot of other people were, too!)

go charlotte! the funny thing is, i think the comics in that sections touched more than just children- the great thing about (really good) children's comics/illustration is that both kids and adults can enjoy it =) i tihnk it's a shame as well... esspecially at this time, with UK politics nd econamy kind of falling in on itself, it would be nice to have some sunny beams for all of us =D

the card design is very cool, suave and contemporary! I guess if you want any advice and you don't know what to do the thing to ask is what is it you want to acheive from the card? is there a particualr kind of persona you want to give her btw? she's very queeny/party/stylish to me xD

I agree about the comics section appealing to more than children. Although I wish the Guardian hadn't buried it so deep within the Family section and had let it stand alone as its own section and had done occasional teasers on the front page (they only did that for the very first one). Lots of guys I talked to regularly threw away the Family section without even opening it, and had no idea there were pages of comics inside.

Good advice on the card! Yeah, I think queeny/party/stylish is about what I was going for. :-)

Gosh, I'm not sure! I think it's mid-June, so I figured I'd better get it done before my trip. But I haven't had any reminder e-mails recently, he should probably send one out soon if the deadline's approaching.

That's terrific! I have to finish mine, too. I don't think there's much deadline urgency right now.
