Here is a small ‘how it was done’ animation – a bit of patience is required for it to load http://www.philipchudy.com/galleries/HSB2016/
This year’s exclusive, limited-edition poster for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass performers was a unique tribute to its legendary creator, Claude Shade. Shade, who passed away in 2015, was the Senior Art Director/Photographer for Goodby Silverstein Partners SF, and the creative force behind the vaunted poster series. Olivia Hellman (granddaughter of HSB’s patron creator Warren Hellman) assumed the creative, directorial and photographic mantle this year and called on Claude’s veteran production compadres to create this year’s poster: Lauren Parks (model), Philip Chudy (extra photography of hills, environment etc.,compositing and retouching) and Philip Sweet (production).
This is the 5th Poster in the series I worked on. Here are links to prior blog entries for the others:
