TWELFTH NIGHT POSTER



I just designed this poster for my husband's middle school production of Twelfth Night. I literally did it almost overnight and stayed up way too late. It was quite fun, looking up psychedelic posters, listening to psychedelic music and then hand manipulating the fonts and using colors I like.

Now why is that significant? I've been working for the past year freelance art directing a mass market series of children's books that uses the same font, the same colors and the same look. The poster was anything but that. The art direction has been more time-consuming than I had anticipated, causing my disappearance from the blogosphere. The series is still ongoing and I'm still art directing it, but I'm going to set myself the goal of one blog post per month to give my creative juices an outlet.
