Oh! What A Circus

Oh! What a circus, oh what a show
Argentina has come to town
over the death of an actress called Eva Peron...


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 six is Eva Peron from Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Evita, based loosely on the life of Argentina's "first lady", I guess you could call her. I know this musical because of the 1996 movie--my mom saw it when it first came out, so I've been listening to Madonna and Antonio Banderas sing this since I was approximately five years old. I wasn't allowed to listen to rock music when I was a kid, so the moments of fast Latin beats was my substitute :D

Stupid dA won't let me have exclamation points in the title...:grump:

:star: Listen to the song, performed by the yummy Antonio Banderas (or if you're a guy, Madonna is in there a little bit too if you care...:P) here: Oh! What A Circus
