The Information Officer

I have been developing visuals for this book I read, The Information Officer, for the last 6-7 weeks. Doing something on a large scale like this has been new, but interesting. Its great to see how quick you can develop something that already has a context. The story takes place on Malta during the 2nd world war, and I have been trying to keep things fairly realistic. I tried imagining that this would eventually develop into a feature film in the nature of ww2 pictures such as Saving Private Ryan or Band of Brothers. We had to throw these two presentation boards together for my Advanced Perspective class, and since my classes are over I am gonna stop working on this for a while. It's fun working on something set in a specific time-period, but I think I want to do something a bit more creative and less realistic for a while. Explore some different kind of styles!
