When thinking about the prompt “heart”, I thought of the “Queen of hearts” card. I decided to change it to the “heart of the ocean” card. I then created 2 card illustrations, one of a mermaid and another one of a sailor. I used round shapes to draw their hair and beard to create the effect of the ocean. I added a little sailing boat in the sailors’ beard. I enjoyed creating these as they’re very different from the usual illustrations I created in the past. Although I used the colours: red, blue and yellow, I am not sure whether it was affective.
