Phantom of the Opera Postcards
Analog to Digital
Using analogous process and changing colors only using limited photo tools in Photoshop, create an abstract design of an existing play using paper or other materials. Design a set of three 4.25 x 6” postcards and 2-color back. Each postcard should use images you take as foundation for the design, but optional to add additional text, symbols, and images.
The broadway musical I chose to interpret was Phantom of the Opera, an all time classic of love, betrayal, and redemption. To reflect the turbulent passion, darkness, and struggle of a love triangle between the main characters, I wanted the graphics to focus on the romantic tension between the Phantom and Christine Daae. It took many attempts, but most of the pieces show a delicate balance with a beautiful twist as all the mediums are blended together.
