Inspiration was drawn from The Simpsons television series and psychedelic concert posters. The type forms the image of Homer Simpson, his eye taking the shape of a radioactive symbol. Mr. Burns is a very dark comedy with lots of twisted humor. I wanted this poster to feel a little bit deviant in it's mood, taking what you know about The Simpsons and turning it into something a little more off-putting. I used highlighter yellow and electric blue to convey the shocking aspects of the show as well as the theme of it being a "Post-Electric" play.
Process, beginning with initial sketch, designing in Photoshop, then vectorizing in Illustrator.
