We have been working on a video project for the RSA Conference.
Every year RSA picks a famous artist, mathematician, or thinker as a subject/theme for the show video and graphics. For 2009 the selected person was Edger Allen Poe. We had to produce myriad assets to compliment EAP and the iconic imagery associated with him.
This is one of the background paintings we created. They were some of the first visual elements that were designed and painted so we could start visualizing a direction and a graphic feel for the project. We started by thoroughly researching EAP, reading his works, watching over 20 hours of dvd, and researching imagery related to him.
