Dude if I had the change to buy a print I'm pretty sure Burlesque would be at the top of my list but after rent and paying for the printing of my own posters there aint much left over. If it aint food or drink it doesn't really fit into the budget.
But someday, over the rainbow when I make enough scratch I will most definetly be supporting my favorite designers.
Well it's "clear" but it's an intentionally dark color scheme, it's cool mood. But you should copy it into photoshop and adjust the levels if you want to pick up on everything. Or a cheap fix is to click-pull your mouse over it and highlight it, it's blue but a lot more stuff becomes clear . .. .
Well I obviously patterned this after Bicycle cards but the font on top was painstakingly done from scratch, from handdrawn to vector traces round and round til it looked right and as close to the original Bicycle type as possible.
The idea was to use as many of the original elements from the packaging and the cards themselves. you can't see it too well from this pic but the big silver pattern is a rework of the back of the cards. Any filigree you see is in some way taken or reconstructed from the original cards or the pack.
