Lest We Forget

Photoshop.  First I created each element separately - the poppy, the helmet and hats, the tartan, the hat band and even the lettering.  I couldn't find a font that I liked for this project, so I set myself the challenge of creating my own.  Even though it is a very simple font, it was more of a challenge than you might think!  There are a lot of things to be taken into consideration when designing an alphabet!  The next challenge was to recreate the 48th Highlanders tartan, as well as the 48th Highlanders hat band.  The hat band was simple but the tartan was an exercise unto itself!  I wanted to make sure I could replicate the look of woven fabric, best to zoom in for a better appreciation.

I was hired to do some illustrations for a banner advertising fransecinha for sale at a local joint...  dripping with cheesy meaty goodness.
