“A Ride Through Town” Poster


Production Method

Fantasy becomes reality becomes fantasy in this poster inspired by French film Mon Oncle. Translated to rich illustration then turned back into film for the process documentation, art reflects life and back again. Very meta meta, and very impressive. (Scroll to the bottom for the video.)

Project Description

This piece was inspired by the French film "Mon Oncle" and was originally a contribution to the film poster site www.silverscreensociety.com. After watching the movie I was really struck by the amazing set design, and wanted to recreate the detail of the house where the main character lives. It was was more like a giant doll house in design than a real structure, but I loved all the tiny little details. You can really almost feel the influence this movie has had on Pixar, and I wanted to hint at that same "feel-good" tone in the illustration.

Production Lesson(s)

Creating manual separations of this file was somewhat of a nightmare. For the first time, I worked almost totally digitally on this piece (aside from an early sketch) and my Photoshop file had over 300 layers. Cutting and merging all those layers properly took about 8 hours... and that was on top of the 20+ hours of illustration.”
