The Muffin Man

The Muffin Man

Redesigning the Juggling for Klutz cover.
Process: I enjoyed drawing with paint in this one. It was a fun but challenging concept. You had to depict a character being a klutz but at the same time he had to be succeeding at his given task. My favorite part is his phunky hair.

Assignment: Create a Travel Poster that makes you want to go to the specific place you are advertising.
Process: 5 Colour reductive linoleum print.
I had a lot of fun designing this image, I was looking at a bunch of travel posters from Europe during the 60s. I also enjoyed playing with scale, adding a little humor and giving it look like it has been sitting in a bar for the last 50 years.
