Sometimes all you need for inspiration is a really strong image. This simple still of Bardot, I took from screen captures, really captured the look I was going for, strong and feminine.
I used my paintbrushes to create the title lettering for the poster. Whenever possible I try to exercise my art muscles. Picking up pens and brushes relaxes the impulse to control every element that comes from design work. There’s beauty in the imperfections of handmade work.
