I created this poster because I couldn’t find a good poster on Bronzeville. To create this poster, I first, photograph the statue for reference. From that I created dozens of preliminary pencil sketches. After dozens of refinements, the final sketch I converted into a detailed hand ink rendering.
The next stage was to scan the ink rendering. The poster title was created in Adobe Illustrator and placed in Adobe Photoshop as well as the scanned ink rendering.
Color and visual effects was added in Adobe Photoshop.
