Two versions. One with a ghost, one with an invisible ghost. Both are getting a hit of glow-in-the-dark ink over the ghost's profile.
Hey! These are great. I wonder which version you ran with? I like the one with the 'visible' ghost, that extra area of intrest adds balance to the composition, I think. The color choices on this really appeal to me as well. I like that you went for a kind of monochrome look but used the blues instead of gray or sepia tones. Good stuff!
Hey, thanks Siolo,We printed both versions and hit both of them with the glow-in-the-dark paint. I like the one without the ghost outline better, I think, because the viewer has to "solve" it a little more. But I like both of them. Glad you like the colors too. I thought the blue felt snowy, you know?
Yes, note to self 'blue for winter themed work'. Asking the viewer to solve for the ghost... I can see where you are going with that, you must trust your audience more than I do. It's something I've been thinking about a fair bit, trying to leave a little more to the imagination in my own work. Well, cheers and I look forward to your future posts :)
I like this a lot. Nice textures and a woodcut feel to it. I almost missed the very subtle book overlay you added which keeps it interesting. Nice idea to put the title as the business shingle. Color is nice, suggesting the bitter cold. I wish you could somehow post a third and fourth graphic,... photos of the final designs so we can truly get the Glow-in-the-dark ink and how it transformed the final designs.Very clean; not a lot of type to booger up a nice design. I do this type of thing too and most of my clients want dates to be seen from the street. Good job, sir!
