Disappointed by redghostman Disappointed by redghostman
The guest list for comic con here in Columbus seemed like slim pickin's but I couldn't resist the opportunity to create something for Kevin Sorbo to sign and what better than a meme he's well-known for? I wanted to pick a theme that was appropriate for his more well-known role as Hercules so I recreated the same layout and type of the epic poster for Ben-Hur. A lot of typography was easy to apply, appropriately swapping the credits with the "Hercules" credits. The toughest part was fitting the "Disappointed" letters in the same scaled perspective as the original as well as make the same effect of it looking like it was all carved into a mountain. This was a lot of fun and I can't wait to share what happens when I lay this in front of Kevin Sorbo himself this weekend. I'll update on the aftermath.

Update: Super nice guy. We got to talk for a bit and even talked about how that line was ad libbed.
