Probably been done before and will be again but it was a hell of a lot of fun to do and just came together very quickly. We had to knock these out quickly in between the DMB posters. I have another dead bride image that is a little more ghostly I hope gets used. This was a 2 color print with black over 877 silver and the paper used is a little more gray blue than what is shown. D&L did a great job printing this.
Need to add another comment, because Ghost is right in saying that this idea has been seen many times. I know you guys well enough to know that you were very aware of that fact when you started to put this together...and I can almost hear the conversation/thought process where you decided that if you were gonna do it, it would need to be pulled off in a way that justified the choice, both to you guys and to the band. Again- mission accomplished. This is great, and IMO stands way above most bride/skull poster images. I don't think I'll ever try one after seeing this one.
I'm curious about a few things here. At a glance, this might look like it's as simple as slapping some text on top of a photo, but I know there's a lot more to it. Is it safe to say the paper color is what you see around the outer border? And if so, did you guys print white? But it's not really white, is it...There's an eerie luminescence in the color of the bridal clothes, and I'm wondering how you achieved it. It almost looks like the whole print has some metallic in it. In any case, this a killer job of taking a pretty simple idea and wringing superlative amounts of creepiness out of it. The photo-distress along the right side in contrast with the rich solid along the left side is awesome.
I could analyze this print inch by inch, and I'll bet every inch would be awesome. If you guys found this pic with the imperfections already intact, then you found gold...If you added it, it was very deliberately calculated and very well-rendered - And I need to pick your brain the next time I see you. I need one of these above my mantle.
