 Illustration Magazine Cover

The project was participated in D&AD Student Awards 2012, particularly themed on the illustration brief for a film magazine, Little White Lies, from the UK.
February, 2012
Rationale
Screenshots from the movie, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier and Spy
Pencil Sketches
The illustration on this cover is a collage of pencil sketches of scenes from the film Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Pieced together, these sketches form the portrait of George Smiley, an experienced intelligence officer with the M16 in the film. Smiley keeps the same com-posed face throughout the movie despite the circumstances, raising an increasing suspicion for him the further into the film the audience watches. It is this impenetrable face that is Smiley's key to surviving the Circus and forms an unforgettable image throughout the film. This is why I chose to depict this image, in such a manner, to front the design for the cover.
