|Wait Until Dark- by Greg Newbold 13" x 18"- Digital|
I set up a photo shoot with my wonderful model Betsy and photographed a couple of different options. I wanted to invoke the feel of old film noir movie posters in the color palette and also by adding the distressed edges and scratches. I created and scanned my own hand made distressed folds to make it look like the poster was worn along the folds as well.
I also took the opportunity to handle the title design. I found a very retro feeling font that was appropriate for the overall feel of the poster. I also distressed the type layer to match the rest of the image. I'm thrilled with how it turned out and the client, Footlight Players Theater in Charleston, South Carolina, was as well.
