As part of a second year project, a narrative series was tasked portraying a story with the use of lino print techniques. The story is then later translated to a poster to highlight the key focus and main characters. The choice of black colors was chosen to portray the mystical and dark theme behind the series, with a natural grunge texture finish that completes the idea behind its theme. Shapes and paterns are used to portray emotions of character and perspective throughout each scene.
