David Benoit Poster 9 sketches

These 9 sketches were chosen from the 20 some sketches I did for the matrix. I used a lot of Synecdoche taking parts to represent a whole. The christmas bulbs is one of my favorite ideas because it symbolizes each character. I really enjoy the zig zag of Charlie's shirt and thought of creating music notes to go along that line or illustrate with text to make the type a primary element of the poster instead of secondary information. But the boldness of the zig zag would be really eye catching from the street. I used the curl from Charlie's hair as another bold element and Synecdoche. I practiced drawing some of the characters to be able to incorporate the line quality.
