So for my postcard project, I wanted to make something fun for the recipient to interact with. So I pose them a question everyone (or maybe just me) has thought about: What kind of superhero would you be? What kind of powers? This is a fun concept to play around with and imagine, and one that, as a huge nerd, I have contemplated many times. I ask viewers to draw themselves as a superhero, and list their powers.
As far as the card itself, I spent 90% of my time drawing out the Green Lantern figure (he’s my favorite superhero), and converting it to a vector in Illustrator. The background images I made quickly in photoshop, sort of trying to mimic the “dot” texture of comic books to make it more interesting.
