This project bears mention because of its integration of hand-drawn and Photoshop-rendered work to achieve a single—and singular—effect. The client, a San Franscisco-based distiller, wanted to evoke the Prohibition Era and had a specific photograph in mind, the scene where gangster and bootlegger Luigi Malvese was murdered in 1929, just outside a barbershop. Unfortunately, the copyright to the picture belonged to the city. The only way to use the picture would be to use a hand-drawn, artistic rendering of the scene. Using the photo as a visual reference, I drew the scene in charcoal, scanned the image, and then rendered it for effect in Photoshop CS4.
