Deadline is January 30, 2012  But earlier is good too!

Here is the challenge.

the basic design is the forum fool from the upper left corner.  BUT he is sized up a bit, and then cut into pieces, which each piece then being a card.  each card will contain some black lines, when all the cards are laid in order, the lines are the Forum Fool.

for example, whoever does the fool will get a file, probably a jpeg if I can figure out how to export it.  (or .ai) you put whatever you want on that card, but the basic lines must remain.  it'd be nice if the lines are incorporated into the card design, but it's not necessary.

card size is 2.5 x 4.5, with no borders,  each card must have the card name added to the design somewhere

see diagram below.  the first one is the full deck, the second is an example of what the fool would require.  obviously the 2 files are very different scales.  the full deck will be 15 x 18, individual cards are 2.5 x 4.5

OK. I'll take The Hermit. We do whatever we like in there as long as the lines show, right?

The Moon please...

Don't forget that there'll have to be a bleed if the cards are borderless - ie. we'll have to take our images at least 3mm over the edge of the finished card size - more if the printer needs more.

Wheel of Fortune please.

This is an interesting concept, yet could end up looking a bit chaotic, but I'll give it a go.

I am going to talk to the printers and see what they say.  but for now, don't plan on bleed.

and for those who don't know what 'bleed' is, don't worry about it!

Hierophant, please? I'm not quite sure I have a good understanding of the requirements, but I need a card with ...not so many lines. :D

ETA: Yes, template, please - pm me for e-mail addy.

ETA2:  Are the lines supposed to be visible in our cards and actually made part of the representation, or just an overlay to whatever we do?

Sorry if these are dumb questions....:f

I also want to join in, but I am still not sure which card I would want to take. I am doubting between Strength, Wheel of Fortune and Temperance. I hope I can make my decision tonight.

WOW, i was worried that no one would be interested in this crazy idea,, but there are only 2 cards left!!!

Everyone who requested a card should have received an email from me with their template.  if you didn't i may not have the most up to date email for you.  Pm me with your email and I'll send it again.

The Moon. Darker than the others so far, but the lines do still show...

Pen

Edited to add that uploading this has made the colour appear very bright (which s'not) - I s'pose it's something to do with the CMYK file, which will be the one printed. Not sure whether to adjust the jpg to appear closer to the original or to leave it.

I've uploaded an RGB one instead of the CMYK file and the colour is OK now...:D

In any case, I may have a little tweak before I send the hi res file to you.

I'm in the States and I see it fine. It's terrific. Let me try uploading it in case it's holding a grudge from 1776.

I'm just copying the image from the screen as a .jpg.

How weird that only some can see it. But has anyone else noticed that their card image becomes more colour saturated when uploaded to the forum?

Great cards so far... :ro

How so? I'm viewing it on the same monitor whether in Photoshop or here...:?

I think it's something to do with CMYK.
