To death with a smile poster

DEATH_poster_NOTYPE.jpg

This poster created for the MUMEDI To Death with a Smile International Poster Competition, is a personal interpretation of the timeless adage, “Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust.” The ghoulish figure depicts a peaceful soul evaporating up into the cosmos to become an eternal piece of the universe. Created traditionally, using layers of charcoal, acrylic paint, and colored pencil, then digitally compiled, this poster attempts to evoke the ethereal feeling of a departing soul.
