Graphic Design Project – Film Poster – Second Version

There was something wrong on this poster’s first version, especially in what concerns the title. I just re-worked it and reoriented the gradient into obtaining more striking design. It’s only a detail, but it looks less sloppy!

Graphic Design Project – Film Poster – “Art Nouveau” Poster for “The Illusionist”

:) Hey, hey, hey! :)

Good evening, my dear readers and followers. I am just finishing a piece of graphic design homework, which consists in creating a film poster. This poster must be completely different from official one, and let appear names of main actors, film title, director, and maybe some striking sentence.

I chose Neil Burger’s The Illusionist, a supernatural-historical fiction starring Edward Norton, taking place in Vienna at the beginning of 20th century. Although it’s not considered to be a huge masterpiece, I’ve been fascinated by particular atmosphere and photography, and by Norton, Biel and Giamatti’s performance in this pleasant film. I enjoyed the influence of Vienna Secession in several cuts, especially the usage of light and colors (golden, orange, yellow, warm brown, black) used by many Austrian artists of this period in their paintings, graphic, architectural and design productions. I wanted to recreate both darkness and warmth of The Illusionist photography.

If you watched, you probably remember… the orange tree. A wonderful scene, with Philip Glass’ stunning soundtrack. It is visually amazing: Edward Norton makes an orange tree grow instantaneously. In addition, orange tree trick becomes a big issue between Eisenheim (Edward Norton), the illusionist, and detective Uhl (Paul Giamatti), who is fond of magic and enjoyed Eisenheim’s show at the beginning of the film.

In this digital artwork, I have been influenced by Art Nouveau and Vienna Secession artworks. I tried to re-adapt it to our present tastes. It is not perfect, but it was my first work on Illustrator. It took me HOURS. I also re-worked title’s font, into making it both Art Nouveau and lisible.

I really hope you’ll like it!

Here is another illustration devoted to my novel, more specifically to wolves’ fight in Chapter XXIX… This scene is quite violent, depicting illegal wolves’ fights organized by wild animals traffickers. There’s a very special participer, a mysterious woman dressed in black latex and wearing a mask, who masters her “pets” amazingly.

Insight Into My Sketchbooks… – Applied Scrapbooking – October 2014

:) Hello, hello! :)

I know I’m not meant to tell you everything I do, but I managed to do something both relaxing and creative today! I am really busy at the moment. I have to deal with my writings, my novel online, my illustrations, my graphic design homework, and so on… I read something interesting regarding what in French we call a carnet de recherche in graphic design. It’s like a notebook, and you put some piece of research (notes, pictures, sketches) for a project, into presenting it and adding some value to it. It’s called a sketchbook, but it actually looks like a real book.

Consequently, I had the idea of putting some oder in my ideas, notes and sketches. I realized it was quite similar to scrapbooking, and could look wonderful. Indeed I have a very bad habit: I draw on “flying sheets”, as we say in French, and I sometimes have some difficulties in finding my own work. So I took all my last illustrations and sketches, I classified them and pasted them in a big blank book, where I already drew some stuff…

I couldn’t resist to take the picture with my webcam and to share with you, although you already know these drawings, ’cause it looked wonderful. If it can give you some ideas for your realizations!

These ones concern a project in graphic design project inspired by Vienna Secession.

And in this part, you can have an insight into my last illustrations… I used colored paper into emphasizing them, and differencing them from ivory paper of the notebook. It looks like a photo album…
