Public Service Poster

This was a public service announcement poster against smoking. The concept was based around a smoking character from the 1950's that was a carton of cigarettes with women's legs dancing. I took this character and drew a body outline around her as if it was part of a crime scene. The text at the bottom is a play on words that would headline that smoking character. The placement is meant to resemble that of a surgeon general warning on a cigarette pack. The medium was nupastels on pastel card and was then touched up in photoshop.

Event Poster

This was an event poster and I decided to illustrate a seafood festival that is held in south Florida. I went with the concept of seafood market chalkboards that show sales. The claws are more of a surreal combination of lobster and stone crab claws, along with shrimp boarding the sides of the text. The medium was nupastels on pastel card.
