A poster design for a friend's short film. This isn't originally what I planned, but I did this up after being inspired to go another direction part way through.
I was given a photo to work from, and thought I would go the illustrated route. I vectorized it, keeping to a B&W colour scheme initially (I was thinking of making it colour afterward). But I ended up liking it, and added the red background for colour and threw some typography in there. I'm waiting to see what he thinking - I sent this to him mainly as a proof for the style of the illustration, with the option of keeping the poster as is.

That's Pardis to the left in the photo. To the right is the hilarious Colin Mochrie.
