Kilkenny Film Club - The Leopard

The last of the films for this season was shown on the 18th of December in the Parade Tower. A magnificent grand finale. The Kilkenny Film Club has already organized the next season. It starts with The Night of the Hunter.

In terms of the illustration, I decided to tell the story of the film using a completely different visual code from that one of the film: humorist cartoon moderne against Visconti's meticulous descriptive style.
Hope you like it.

Barnstorm Posters for The Bus

I am delighted to have been involved in this fantastic project. We are almost ready to go to print.
The poster image was done as I usually develop my images: once I was happy with the composition, I inked the drawing (hunt 102 nibs again and Indian ink). Now I tried a different approach in the digital stage. I scanned it as a greyscale image, converted it to RGB and started painting directly with Photoshop. I used most of the natural brushes at low opacity and low flow. It resulted in a quite long time to cover areas but fantastic textures (I wanted to make the bus look a bit rusty...)

The brochure is also a nice piece that I hope to show you as soon as it comes back from the printer.

Talk soon.
