CIA Calendar image 2009 / August 14th, 2009

It’s that time of year again and my agents at CIA were looking for another image to include in their calendar.
I usually find the format of this calendar quite problematic as the image is basically monochrome with three colours and I don’t feel my work stands up too well compared to other illustrators in this form. I don’t mind too much though as the finished calendar does look great and it seems to be well received by all.
The theme word for my selected part of the calendar was “someplace”. I chose the Entitle White Knight illustration to go with this word as I felt I could introduce a 50’s sort of vibe to the theme, especially with the b+w and flat saturated colours in there. To get the message across I had to paint a sign and introduce that into the illustration.
All in all it didn’t turn out too bad. We shall see how this one fairs amongst the other illustrators work.
