Chicago in the Fall
I was recently commissioned to design a poster for this couple's wedding in Chicago. It was to be done in a retro style and be reminiscent of a 'gig poster'. Here was the product!
The scene takes place off of the Chicago North Pond, overlooking the Chicago cityscape, where Dan proposed to Beth.
It was ton of fun doing this piece! I researched and explored 50's and 60's art styles and techniques to complete it, including great artists like Eyvind Earle and Melanie Matthews.
Below are some details of the poster.
