Our first assignment using Illustrator in our Digital Media class was to create a postcard that could be altered in some way, and then sent back to us.

Naturally, since I enjoy horror I decided to give my postcard a zombie theme. I knew I wanted to do something that involved drawing on the front of the card, so I got the idea of having people draw a zombie self portrait of themselves next to Zombie Mailman Steve.

I’m excited to see what I get back and to see what sort of zombie creatures people come up with to be friends with Zombie Steve on the front of this card. People can get creative and spooky at the same time, which is something I enjoy doing with my art.

Self Portrait


Overall, this end result did stick to the original theme which was a spooky landscape, but it did turn out a little differently than I had it planned out in my head. I think this had to do with finding images large enough to fit the canvas. That was definitely one of the hardest parts of this project was finding enough images that were large enough to put together to make this landscape.
