It’s winter break, and I decided to download a trial of Photoshop CS4.

It’s bloody amazing and I don’t know how I lived without it.

I’ve made a few things, but mostly have been playing around with all the shiny new features and tools.  Today, I decided to make a new wallpaper for my phone.  I wanted to keep it simple but still make it appealing to the eye.  After messing with brushes and some very bright colors, I produced this:

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.

Oh. Why hello there, sudden activity!

From now on when I post something, I’ll try to take a minute and do a bit of commentary on the work…what insipred me, things that I did differently, etc.

So for today’s piece, I used a black-and-white Vogue scan featuring Audrey Hepburn, likely from 195-something. I challenged myself in this one, trying to keep it entirely black-and-white yet still make the picture eye-catching. I wound up using mostly brushes. While she looks angry in the scan, Audrey keeps her elegance…so that’s another thing I tried to do: give the picture dark emotions, but keep it classy.
