Project Description

This piece was part of a Wes Anderson themed tribute show for Spoke Art. I chose his newest film as my inspiration, and decided to focus on all the little details of the hotel itself.

Production Lesson(s)

Creating manual separations is always a tricky task, and ends up being hours of grueling detailed work. This time I used the magic wand in Photoshop as a "shortcut" to select blocks of color instead of combining all of my individual layers one at a time. It still took hours, but saved many in the process. Also my printer taught me a valuable feature of the magic wand that allows you to select only overlapping areas which was really useful for creating manual trapping.”
