Charlatan Entry

"Happy Meal" by CRBaldwin
An entry to the Charlatan design competition which is located here:
The design competition theme for this year is derived from a work by Paul Guaguin with the same name,"Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?" This graphic provides answer to these questions by juxtaposing iconography of the past, present, and future along with conventions currently found in every day Life but which also existed in the past and probably will continue to do so into the Future. Primal blood thirst has always been with us, a kind of food we continuously feast upon, the question now though is, with robots about humans more and more everyday as time goes on, will humans have a reserved spot for consumption in posterity or will consumption be passed onto that which we humans create?

Tesla Greatest Hits Album cover re-do

I redesigned this album cover as I felt the original cover (located here: )
while a capable piece of work didn't truly reflect the kind of energy and fun I expect out of the band.
I explored Adobe Illustrator using pen tool outlining to recreate Mr. Sun, as well as fills and gradients and the star tool. I then grabbed my digital camera and a small blue mixing bowl and went outside anf filled it with rocks and took a picture of it and imported it into PS. Then inside photoshop I entered the text, drop shadowed much and recreated the various elements on the original "raisin bran" cereal box that this image imitates as well as used layer blending, various fonts, outline glows, the lasso tool, magic wand and some other tools to create this finished unit. The original image is the cereal box design for Kellog's Raisin Bran.
