Last week we started a kickstarter campaign to raise money for the movie we’re shooting in September. I really hate begging for money, so that has been really uncomfortable. But we’re getting a pretty good response so far, and hopefully we’ll continue to gain momentum. Here’s the cardboard lettering I did for the title.
I also finished up the cardboard Shakespeare portrait. I thought about layering it, as Anna suggested, but it seemed like a lot of work. Then I got the idea of using vegetable oil to add some contrast and give it more depth. It’s pretty subtle, but it helped a lot.
I also wanted to make portraits of the primary cast members, so I bought a bunch of scratch board and tried to mimic the style of those Barnes and Noble illustrations by Mark Summers (not to be confused with Marc Summers). That guy must be the most patient and steady-handed human alive. I had a lot of fun making these portraits. Can you recognize the artists, or at least the subject?
