|It is 2.30 am and I can not sleep... so I was thinking
of all the projects I have done... OK, i was also thinking of doing
a new version of this web site, but it is too much for one night...
So, I want to present you this poster, and his history... It is
another never ending project... This one was for a competition,
for an exposition of a painter who did oceanic and biologic paintings...
he was in a boat and did paintings of the expedition... and amazing
project, totally in my skills...
Added to that, I found on the web high resolution pictures of the
guy, and I can vectorize his own signing from one of his paintings...
So, I did this :
|Well, I did not win... I work about a week on
it... but I did not get it because... "it was too beautifull, and
the people who visits the exposition may be desepointed"... can you
believe that!!! I can't, it was a year ago, and I still can not believe
What is the aim of a poster??? Makes people want to see the exposition...
and it was like "no, if people like it, they will come"...
Since this fail, I am really fed up of competition... In which other job
you work for nothing...
Well, enough for tonight... Want also to show these, these ones have been
accepted by the client... it is for a shop of ancient oriental carpets
in Paris... these are the ad and front and back of a flyer... good night
|I build a machine

|This project was done in november... I do not show
it before because it was for a competition and... I did not get
it ! It was for a music festival... instead of doing a simple poster,
I build a machine... I do this with old clocks parts and other old
stuff I have found... The middle part is a metal box, I build an
electric sytem to light in, with clear paper in front of it... I
also put some little lights in the corners...
|It takes me around 3 days to buld it, then I
did photographies of it with a friend of me, and there is around 2 days
of work to let it look like this... by "days" I means 8 hours
Here come 2 images of the "process" ... the first is the images
with colors and light modifications, second is the original image of the
machine, without any correction... You can notice that the box is more
little, I put it bigger on photoshop...
Also, seeing the image is
taken in front, you do not see this is a real machine !! Here come some
pictures of details...
|Also, the client ask to present a poster, but
also other elements as 4 CD compliation...
|I am really please with the result, and sad
they choose something else... I know who get it, and he is really talented,
so... whatever, if you like this poster and elements, and want them for
your own project, they are for sale ! Contact me at fabien(a)imoments.org
