Half way through, I bet no one put money on that as it would be a pointless bet. I almost gave up this week or put the project on hiatus till next year but I forced myself to stick with it, you lucky people. Yeah so the latest one http://placid-world.deviantart.com/art/Ace-of-Hearts-Release-90867365 , it comes with a bonus story for Diaz. My current situation is.. jobless and nowhere will give me one (If you can get me a job please do, I don't care what atm) so with my time I've been playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl, caution its highly addictive *mutters "must get all the trophies."* In fact I can describe my life currently with gaming, sha

2008

0 min read
Hi all, This seems like a good place to put notices. Most of you reading this know about my project for 2008 but for all those visiting my page for the first time welcome :) My project is to take a photo each week of a playing card at the heart of the image. The idea is there are 52 weeks in a year and 52 cards in a deck so this will give me a good challenge for the year. I'm already up to the 5 of Diamonds http://placid-world.deviantart.com/art/5-of-Diamonds-Five-Diamonds-75836054 so hopefully I'll keep it up. Don't expect me to update this journal regularly.

I've been sat here for days wondering why your work doesn't come up on my watch list...just discovered I am apparently not watching you. Duh.
thanks for watching too btw ^_^

that would be a hindrance but my work won't be coming up anyway atm as i've finished the project and haven't had time to work on anything currently.
:cowboy::music:

Thanks for stopping by.

:iconorgelplz:
so I've been wondering for quite some time, its November now, you've almost made it with your cards project and it was great to follow, so will you do a similar project next year?
or do you like the idea of almost being done?

I'm over my wanting to quit the project but an end to it does look like a nice xmas present.
As for the future, I have no projects planned after this. I came up with this project in about 10 minutes one night and by the morning had finished the first one, so you never know but I wouldn't do one of this magnitude again as it has dominated my life a bit.
I have a note book with pages of ideas from this project most of which I can't see a way of making it work or too stupid but there maybe a few random playing card pieces after this.
I try not to plan ahead with anything, it makes life more fun and unexpected.
Thanks for watching me! :)
