A is for Art

Art Gathering Poster

For MATS April Bootcamp Assignment we were given the job of creating a poster for the upcoming Global Art Gathering event in Brighton.

The mini had been to hand letter the words Global Art Gathering.

Hand lettering sketches


After creating the lettering by hand using pencil, pen & ink.

I then scanned the drawings and took them into illustrator. Using the sketch as an idea for a composition, I created the poster design in illustrator using the colour palette that had been given to us.

I then added texture to the vector artwork in Photoshop using clipping masks and hand made brushes & textures. I really liked this technique and am looking forward to exploring this technique further.
