Poster design

As I mentioned in the previous post, finding the old illustration was quite handy as I ended up basing my entry for a poster design exhibition on it. The designs are going to be screen-printed and we were only allowed to use one color (which was chosen for us) so converting my illustration took a bit of work.
I ended up simplifying it a bit and then using texture and pattern to create layers and delineate areas of space. It was a good challenge to work on, and there are definitely some nice areas of the picture which I wouldn't have come up with otherwise. I think it would be interesting to now use this as a base and add in a few more colors again to see what happens. But I don't know if I'll bother with that :)
