3rd Idea – LGBT Comic

For my third project proposal idea I desire to create an interesting  overall informative LGBT themed comic book aimed towards late teens and young adults. In consideration of this final major project I intend to look into depth the process of creating a comic book, as well as, the progress of making a DIY Zine inspired comic book, how comic strips are set out and how they have changed over the years of comics.  When doing research I fancy the idea of taking inspiration of a handful of my most motivating and inspiring selection of illustrative artists and taking certain elements away from their LGBTQ themes. Such as taking the characters from a webcomic or printed comic/zine and putting a completely different spin on it so that I am not just including my own handwriting into my responses but actually, take elements of the artists work and mould it into my own image. My theme for this project would be slice of life , where you grow to understand the main characters in only a few strips.

 

2nd Idea- Lost Civilization Tarot cards

For my second project proposal I strive to look at making a simple batch of tarot cards based on lost civilizations that not only am I  interested in, but are fascinating missing links to our history. Tarot cards are something I’ve never looked at before, though be that as it may, when browsing the internet for personal projects everything appeared to be the same basic idea, therefore when I took time to reflect on what personally drives me I realized that it was spiritualism which motivates me to illustrate on many if not most occasions. From there I found myself researching about tarot cards and their history through the helpful advice of family members who have more insight to the tarot world. I think it would be interesting if I were to perhaps create a more contemporary  set of tarot cards rather than the traditional array, however this does not mean I will limit myself as I want to explore every corner of Tarot and its culture before making a precise decision; The root and history of the tarot is of importance as I must understand how to use and how to connect meaning with the lost worlds of choice. The lost civilizations I have in mind consist of the most discussed civilization besides Atlantis and that is Lemuria who back in her time was the empress of the day where culture and diversity prospered, as well as,  Mu who is said to be the spiritual realm of Lemuria of which was lost when contentiousness deteriorated, also Atlantis for it is one of the most mainstream and most mysterious of lost worlds and the last one in mind is El Derado te lost city of gold.  The theme for my final product would be spiritualism as it compliments the Tarot card genre.

1st Idea- Chinese Zodiac Illustration Series

For my first project proposal I intend to look at creating my own array of illustrations focused upon the Chinese Zodiacs. The reasoning for this particular idea is because I aim to do illustration when I progress onto higher education, therefore I think it would be beneficial that for my final major project I look at creating my own personal take on the Chinese animal zodiacs through a series of A3 illustrations.  For this FMP I would aspire to create a minimum of six illustrations, each illustration to their own animal zodiac, I would create the characters, the style, background and theme of the zodiac; This would give me a chance to explore a range of different artist of whom may have created a series of Chinese zodiac illustrations, those who specialize in anthropomorphic character design and artist who concentrate their passion within mythical beasts. The theme for my project is fantasy/sci-fi as I believe this best reflects on the spiritual and scientific aspects to the Chinese zodiac calendar.
