I am continuing to create more thumbnails, and develop more and different concepts.

I have narrowed down my choices for the poster. I have decided on choice #3- a freestyle poster. My topic will be one specific to San Antonio, a poster on the San Antonio missions trail. There are 4 missions that I can create a poster on. My purpose will either be to advertise the mission trail or to promote tourism.
Today, I progressed on my project by reading through my printed research. I have narrowed my topic down to several different options. I ended up eliminating some of my sources because they did not provide relevant information or further my progress; however, I did find some valuable information in other materials/sources.
I researched both on the Internet and in the library on various events and locations and organizations in San Antonio. I want to choose a subject that I am interested in and I am from San Antonio. I then printed out some of the resources that I found.
Unfortunately, I have been out of town and am just now getting to fill in for the days that I was away from the Internet. I kept a written log of my progress on the days that I am imputing now. My first step in completing the project was reviewing my several pages of in-class notes that relate to the projects. I also found two beneficial websites that relate to posters and creative briefs. The links are below:

At the moment, I have not yet decided which of the four options I am pursuing for my poster. The second and third options stand out because of the potential subject matter. I also enjoy doing research. The style of the examples provided for these two options would add some variety to my portfolio as well. One phrase that stood out to me today was that if an idea does not inform you of your next idea/execution, then it is probably not that great of an idea.
