I was asked by Mickie Banyas to create poster artwork for her film Bridal Veils. A Reconstruction-era period piece shot in Georgia, it is a comedy/drama about two would-be brides who get more than they bargained for on their travels.
I worked with Mickie as an actress in my 2007-8 feature Shamelessly She-Hulk, where she played a nurse. Actresses Mickie Banyas and Kyle Larsen are depicted here. The poster was first drawn with pencil on several large sheets of paper, and portions were inked with a Copic F02 drawing pen. This was refined over several drafts before being painted in Photoshop.
The poster itself went through a few concept drafts. Mickie and the horse are basically what I drew originally, but that version was rejected at first, and we tried something entirely different before returning to the original concept. Bridal Veils is now playing in festivals as a short film. A feature version is in the planning stages.
