In 2010 created a series of poster images based on Jimi Hendrix and the concept of "What is Cool?." Of course, there is nothing cooler than Jimi, so he became the first subject in this proposed series. The color poster design was based on the large scale marker painting shown below that I produced in black and white. I used a broad tip marker and white guoache watercolor paint. The marker rendering was a personal work for me designed to explore the expressive capabilities of using loose marker brush strokes to produce a painterly effect.
The color poster designs were created in Photoshop using a scan of my original inking and were used as a demonstration project for my course in Concept Illustration.
