Shown here are the states Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

New pieces from the series Illustrated States of America, for the states of the West North Central Region of the United States. Check them out here, at my store!

This series mixes traditional oil painted media and digital collage work in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Decided to try a new approach here with the digitally combined collage, basically scanning in the line drawing of each state and some painted textures. Much quicker than painting all fifty states individually, and an exercise in using Adobe Photoshop again, since my exposure recently has been lacking.

This alternative movie poster is a lighthearted approach for the campy 2006 movie about the life of Marie Antoinette, the eponymous French queen from Sofia Copolla. The image is a stylized portrait of Marie Antoinette with a French style coiffure topped with flowers, pomegranates, birds, and macaroons. The cascading tendrils of hair frame her neck, which is slashed with red, symbolic of her notorious death. Her face is done up like a china doll.

This alternative movie poster is an homage to the campy sparkle fest Moulin Rouge directed by Baz Lurhmann and starring Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, Jim Broadbent, and John Leguizamo. The main image is a stylized version of Nicole Kidman’s character Satine, the Spakling Diamond, with the caged bird symbolizing her antrapment throughout the movie. The scarlet dabs around her neck also hint to her impending death at the end of the movie.
