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.

Waterloo Letter

May 7, 2009

Waterloo Bridge for the win.

Originally, I was going to do something like the last entry – something with a pencil drawing. But it would be boring to do the same thing twice in a row, so I experimented with unique textures until this resulted. :)

A second version follows. Click on the thumbnails for full resolution.

The pictures used here come from one of my favorite photo shoots of Maki’s, and my second-favorite photobook of hers. The title of this post means “hue” or “tint.”

I got the colors by using the color mixer. I hardly ever used the color mixer. No, wait – I don’t remember using the color mixer before now. but after making these, I think I’ll try it out more often.

On with the graphics…

^ That one was later changed into this:

Red -with- Stripes

*Ohnoez, it’s smaller in width than usual! :O

I love frames in pictures. Any pictures. They’re fine around the picture, but what about in the picture? It creates an interesting effect. When I saw that texture, it was a must-use. (Credit here.) I put it on the first image I figured would work. Add in some paint splatters, and voila, this happens.

In a Dream

July 23, 2008

Like the last entry, I also made this one during an ~uninspired~ moment. The thing about the pictures like this is…I never know where I’m going with it. There’s nothing to expect or aim for.

This turned out better compared to the last one, though. I liked her dazed expression… maybe that’s why.

Mirrorcle World

The only things that inspired me for this was warm colors, the “dissolve” blend mode, and of course, Lauren Bacall.

Let’s Peace!

The picture in this one uses that oh-so-famous photo of the man kissing the woman at the end of World War II. I’m very pleased with the turnout of this one…the way the colors seem to flow out of the couple’s own little world, and the way the burst of white light surrounds them.
