More college work.
The brief for this was to create a poster for a hypothetical 'museum of moustaches'. It had to have a Victorian feel to it, and the text to use was specified to the letter, with no room for ad-libbing.
Most people went the traditional route of making their posters look Victorian; sepia tones, etching-style drawings, etc... Because of this I decided to go down the more clean-cut Parisian style of Henri Tolouse Lautrec.
The position of every single letter was measured out precisely, and the the black at the bottom was painted around
the red letters. It took quite a long time.
