Cipoletti's Poster

I have been wanting to combine more of the digital and fine art side. Tim, the owner of Cipoletti's, wanted a "retro-george-jettson" style of poster. This project gave me the perfect opportunity to try out mixing digital with a hand drawn look. I drew the characters, scanned them in, and then put the finishing touches on in Illustrator.
I must admit I was a little unsure about the task. I could not envision the final picture in my head. But after much research of the "retro-style" I felt like I had to attempt something. And it just worked. I was really happy with the way it turned out.
I just saw the 2 x 3 foot poster hanging on the wall today. It did look pretty cool (coming from an artist who always critiques oneself harshly).

Fort Collins Coloradoan

I was so excited about the recent coverage in the Coloradoan. It brought interested contacts, lots of exposure and much fame (I'm just kidding about the later part). Really, I'm so thankful for it. But that is enough bragging.
Next time I don't think I'll go for the all black stealth-like look. I was thinking about the color around me and thought I should wear something simple. But instead I look like the floating head and hands.
And yes, that is my apartment. Nothing fancy here . . . but just wait until those New Years resolutions kick in. Resolution #1 network as much as Gary and Tiffany Blackden combined. That should get me off to a good start. :)
