Fringe Postcard Art

June 25, 2015

Recently a good friend called and asked if I would help her by designing her Kansas City Fringe Festival performance art postcard. She asked if I would modify one of my paintings, Pectin.

She wanted something simple. To have the cherry magically transformed into a heart. And so I did that using Photoshop’s transform – warp tool. Then I cleaned it up with the eraser and the clone/stamp tool.

I selected Blackadder ITC as the main title font which suited her performance piece and used a sans serif Open Sans for the information. I set everything up to her printer’s request including trim and bleed marks and pdf proofs.

And I made her a poster as well.

Jamie picked them up at the printer today and said they were beautiful. Glad to help. Good luck with your Fringe performance, Jamie!
