Defying Gravity

Defying Gravity
December 2nd, 2011
Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign
10" x 7"

Final project for Computer Graphics I: make a booklet with a theme of 10 things, using Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. My theme is "10 Broadway Musicals". My first concept was to create an entire photomanipulation illustration in Photoshop for each musical representing a scene, and while my professor appreciated that I was thinking big, she advised that I just do a vignette of a character to go with each musical because I didn't have enough time to do something so complex.

So that's what I ended up doing: making a quick photomanipulation for each character in a frame, hanging on a wall, with a lyrics excerpt inside a vector border made in Illustrator.

Page Seven is Elphaba, the infamous Wicked Witch of the West, who is the protagonist of her own musical called Wicked. This musical is probably the one that I'm least familiar with--I only recently came across "Defying Gravity" while surfing on YouTube and I loved it :D

:star: Listen to the song, sung by Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth, here: Defying Gravity
