Above: Martinez Opera Contra Costa poster. The 'muse' artwork was already available to me and had a different background. I replaced the background and illustrated the dramatic storyline of many operas in the stylized typography with its arrangement and characterizations of the "Opera" letters. Software: Adobe Photoshop.
Above: Two Day Town festival poster. This is a compilation of three photos. The POV was changed so I moved the stage with audience in the background instead of the sound booth. Then the child in blue was moved closer (from an outtake) so he was not hidden behind the flowing scarves. Some shadows were created. Software: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator.
Above: Two Day Town festival poster. This is a compilation of two photos. The only way to get all three dancers in the vertical designed piece was to bring the middle dancer in from a separate photo and merge them together. Software: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator
Above: Two Day Town festival poster. I took this photo of one of the core group members of the festival event during an evening jam, however the background of camping trailers and other things distracted from the fire-lit emotional photo that this is, so I replaced the background with a rich black. Software: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator.
Above: Annual birthday bash poster. Highlighting the music performers, presenting them upside down was appropriate and fun for this group. Filters were added to add a harsh contrast and semi-painted feel. Software: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator.
