Happy Holidays Lovelies,

I'm so beyond thrilled to share my last project of the semester!! This week has been absolutely crazy. It felt like I accomplished everything and nothing all at the same time. Not exactly sure how that is even possible. Oh wait, I am. Painkillers for my leg and working like a machine make for a warped, alternate universe. The good news is my leg has finally healed in time for the Christmas festivities. I won't have to miss out on any dancing with family and friends. I feel like I've been away from my (blog) life for so long, even though it has only been a few days.

Anyways, here are my movie poster designs for the film Chocolat. It felt like the perfect choice of film to work on during the winter season. I loved the idea of designing a typeface out of a fluid like hot chocolate. Something about the natural swirls, created through the movement of liquid, lent itself beautifully to the movie title. I also fell madly in love with Juliette Binoche's face while painting her portrait. Her features are so unbelievably stunning, a painter's dream. Now I can finally begin to celebrate Christmas' imminent arrival. Can't wait to fly home to the snowy countryside. Happy almost weekend everyone and enjoy!!


  1. Goodness me, you never fail to impress, I'm utterly astounded by all of your work. These look so realisitic, I just love the expression, the shape of the eyes and nose are spot on, actually, it's all spot on, this is just perfect in every way! I simply adore it!

  2. M, poster looks great. Very modern and old school. The drawing is great, the feel of it, the red for passion... Everything! Well done!!!

    Death By Shoe, I'm so touched you like my blog and found it through Ania's!! I happen to love her blog too. I have sold some pieces in the past but I'm hoping to set up an Etsy shop at the end of Spring so that I can reach a broader audience. Also, I want to work at doing more series. Please stay tuned.
