These are two of the four Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade posters I've done; 1990, 1996, 1997, and 2002. It's always an honor to be involved in a project that is so univeraslly recognized as an American Tradition.
This is the one from 1990. It's traditional media; airbrushed acrylics on Strathmore board.

This is the most recent, for the 2002 parade. This one is digital, mostly Photoshop with a smidgin of Illustrator for type and such. The file was huge, and when I added up all the layers for all the individual components, it was well over 1000. The scratch file was about 2 gigs...yikes!

These are a few snippets from the 2002 poster at actual printed size:


Monopoly Man

Clifford and other balloons and floats

And here's Old St. Nick. Happy Holidays!

This is an image I made for a book cover titled "The Heart of the Dove". It is a composite of a photograph of a piece of damask fabric and a dove I modeled in Strata 3D. Plus a LOT of Photoshop to make it look at least a little convincing. I was never that happy with the result, but it makes a logical entry for this week's theme.

Long time no IF entries. I HATE when that happens. Just too dang busy to breathe these days. And way too busy to create something new for this topic, which has a ton of fun possibilities. But, I chose an image that isn't fun, but is appropriate for the Halloween time of year. It was done as a book cover called "Happy Birthday Murders". Hope you find the smoke to be deliciously deadly.
