Atlantic City 2013 Poster Process



The Atlantic City run and PhanArt poster show is drawing near. So, time for another poster process post. We're pretty excited about this one. The mock up really doesn't do the colors justice. Like Hampton, this will be sized at 11 x 17. It will be a 5 color print, and instead of using reflective paper for the variant, we're doing it for the entire run of 100. The paper is "Gold Digital" and is represented here with the yellow color. The variant will be a special "sepia" print in a run of 30 on Biscuit colored paper. More on that one later.



The design centers around the prohibition era police truck, so I started that sketch first.


Next, of course was the venue itself. I love this building.


Then it was leaves and pumpkins for hours.



Sir Mix a Lot at The Print Monkey mixes and selects the right brown. Did I mention that some of these browns will be on the sepia variant?
Brown, baby.
5 colors of the main run against the paper stock. The orange is *almost* there.

The first two colors are down!


Third color...

Fourth color...

...and DONE!

Available at the PhanArt Poster and Pin Exhibition
You'll have to wait until the poster show to see the variant.
