A nice song to get y’all started here, courtesy of Japan, producing 78% of the world’s weird shit since 1952.

(笑)  I love Japan so much. ^_^

Anyways, moving on.

I’m over a month late, but I’m still amazed by TCM’s Summer Under the Stars posters for this year. These posters are some of the best graphic work I’ve ever seen. Even the ones that I don’t really care for — Beat the Devil, The Conversation, and The Magnificent Seven, methinks — are well done. I know I cannot make anything like them. Personal picks below the cut.

The best part of graphics making is when you get an idea in your head and set out to make it real. That way you have a goal, and the final piece is finished faster. It also looks better than when you don’t know what you’re aiming for. Do you agree? I know that’s how I feel when I work. It was the case in this image.

I’m on a 30s movie kick right now.  What are your favorite films of the 1930s?

…ooh, look at all the tags! :P

Blue Bruins Paradise

July 25, 2008

Oh, why yes, I did make another Bette Davis picture! Thankfully, I did her some justice; this one turned out much better than the last one with her. Regardless, the person doesn’t matter. I’ll work with whatever looks interesting. I wanted to do something with putting lines around the focus of the picture, and tried the effect shown. The fact that I used blue and yellow were coincidental. They just so happened to look right. Once I was done, it looked like a poster you’d find at the UCLA Student Shop. (Well, that’s what the colors reminded me of.) Lo, it was given the title Blue Bruins Paradise.

Oh, and I listened to 80s music while making this instead of my usual Asian music. Yay? [I wasn’t Rickrolled, if that makes it any more interesting.]

This is one of those things I made when I was completely uninspired, and you can tell by looking at it. The only thing that’s special about this one is how the light reflects in the mirrors around Ms. Davis…other than that, I’m not really proud of this piece. [The original picture is good, though.]
