sun & wave

Here's the latest poster/cover design for Hangs Upon Nothing.  I made this for the latest film fest submission I sent out yesterday.  This one really reminds me of Apocalypse Now.  I love some of the poster designs for the movie.  And I'd call that film one of the influences on this project.  I've only seen it once, but it made a strong impression on me.  There's some imagery in that movie you just can't forget.

I think I'll likely explore a lot more designs in this realm.  I love how free it feels, and how the quick spontaneous brush strokes feel to me a lot like an actual wave in motion.  I also like the simplicity of this design, and how the colors match the trailer cover image with Mikala in the barrel.

If you dig this project, you can keep up to date through the film's fb page:
