So I was in Manchester a little while back and picked up a couple of books by Jay Ryan & Tara McPherson, illustrators who do a lot of poster work for gigs… and I thought, well thats pretty cool so inspired I’ve started some Mermaid themed images to work up, but until they are ready here’s some tests I did to show students how you can throw a poster together quickly using an old sketchbook sketch as the heart of the graphics…

Most of this was done just with marqueed and block coloured layers set to multiply…

… on the gig ones I think my favourite part was making up the names of the bands or the comedy acts.

A couple of these might even make it into my portfolio yet…
