Hi, all.... here's a suggestion for a poster and catalogue cover concept:

Image

These are the individual images, which I also have much larger, obviously:

Image
"Picasso"

Image
"Warhol"

Image
"Lichtenstein"

Image
"Mondrian"

I'm not entirely happy with the "Lichtenstein" - I might do better starting out with one of Jack's "Commando Comics" as a base picture...

I was thinking that if people were interested, I could do T-shirt graphics with individual pictures, with or without frames...

What do you reckon?

bestest,
M.

Obviously been working hard since we spoke Matt - or had you already made a start ;-)

I can see myself going for the Mondrian just so when people ask what is it I can say "A Spitfire, duh!" :grin:

The Picaso is great fun if not quite erm abstract enough.

I think the Warhol needs some more work, basically simplifying the original image they appear to be plenty of tutorial of how to do this about: http://www.melissaevans.com/tutorials/a ... hotographs

The Lichtenstein does it for me as that was always my favourite Spitfire box art - I even had the 1000 piece jigsaw of the same image. However, I may have to perform quick change routines as I will need to be wearing my Airfix Modelling SIG shirt some of the time as well.

Cheers
Al.

P.S. Meant to say, nice work on those as always Matt. If you want any other ideas, I think G-for-George in the style of Seurat might be nice - which is almost what you have achieved with the Lichtenstein as it happens (I think the dots need to be bigger for Lichey) - Pointilism rules!

Thanks, boys... James is right, as usual, so here's a new "Warhol", following the instructions in the excellent tutorial that James found...

Image

I'll re-do the poster with this one and a new "Lichtenstein"...

bestest,
M.

I think we should all wear berets and carry some Proust with us too. :grin:

Great work Matt that's nailed it.

OK... here's a slightly more abstract "Picasso":

...and here's my latest shot at a "final" montage for a poster or "catalogue" cover:

I think Lichtenstein needs a "Taka-taka-taka" and a large explosion somewhere... :lol:

Seriously, though, looks great Matt - great idea and execution.

I've been playing around with some ideas for the poster. Comments and gentle mocking welcome.

Image

The four sided shape is makes reference to the distorted perspective some of the dioramas have employed. :grin:

..well, it’s certainly got blobs and typography! ;-P Good show, James!

I think it’s got great potential... I understand that you’re trying to make the pictures stand out, but I think at the moment the contrast between the pale blue and white isn’t enough, and will disappear and become unreadable from any distance. I’m also not sure about the black n white “British”... that could be coloured like the SIG logo (or maybe it’s meant to be and hasn’t come out), and the “splatter” font doesn’t look quite Steadman enough...

Mostly, IMHO, it’s a case of making the message “Classic British Box Art” read out of the poster better from a distance, and giving the whole thing more impact (much as I like to see the use of the box art images, in this case it’s the text that REALLY matters)...

BTW... do you think we should have some A3 prints of the “artworks” to brighten things up?

bestest,
M.

Doesn't the word "British" just have to be in full red-white-blue?

I was trying to use a restricted palette. I'm not happy with the flag as it difficult to control it's position with the software I was using. I'd rather get rid of it altogether.

We've a very large colour CBK SIG logo that has the flag emblazoned across it that will probably go in front of the the table.
