Part of a new series of posters centered around the Olympians, the Greek gods and their later Roman equivalents. Each god/goddess is painted and styled as a roman marble statue, with alabaster skin and draped in chiseled cloth. They rest within a heavenly sphere floating on a cloud textured background. Accompanying the god/goddess is an outlined item pertaining to the iconography or myth of each god.
This series mixes traditional oil painted media and digital typography in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Each print includes the illustration of the individual god, as well as its name, its Roman equivalent, and its area of expertise.
This print is for Aphrodite and Venus, the goddess of love, sensuality, and beauty, featured on a red background and clasping a clamshell.
Apollo is coming along nicely! A part of the upcoming Olympians series. Mostly just some highlights and linework left to do, and then I’ll scan it in and decide whether I like the gray background or not. Luckily, I scanned all the backgrounds in, so I can put it back in in Photoshop with little problem.
