Illustrator: Freddie Mercury the Queen of Diamonds

Freddie Mercury: Queen of Diamonds

One of our assignments was to design a playing card in Illustrator. The card  was supposed to have a top and bottom that were the same, so that you could not tell which end was top or bottom.

I came up with the idea of using Freddie Mercury from the band Queen, so naturally I set him up as a Queen of Diamonds!  I made an outline of Freddie from a well known image of him that is available from many sources on the web.  Played around with the chest area to make them match along the center seam.

I entered this into the San Diego County Fair’s Student Art Show and got a first place showing for it!

Kind of fun but ………  Nothing Really Matter …….. To me.
