Shall We Dance?

Shall We Dance?

Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign

Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera!

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 five is from Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I. It's not the most politically correct movie ever made, but hey, it was the '50s. I never saw the 1956 live-action version, but I watched the 1997 cartoon obsessively. Even after 10+ years, I still know all the songs and recite most of the dialogue from memory.

:star: Listen to it here: Shall We Dance?
