Mið-Ísland Poster

Hey guys, here is something different. This was a freelance gig for a director in Iceland, Ragnar Hansson, who is directing the new TV series "Middle-Iceland", which is a sketch comedy show.

Here is a link to an Icelandic news site with the trailer for the show (click the "horfa á myndskeið með frétt" button). There's also desktop versions of my poster there that you can download, which I did as well. I prefer the poster though, that's how I originally designed it.

I was given photographs of the actors as all these different characters, so I had to be pretty accurate about capturing their likeness, which is tricky when they're "in character". I usually do a bit more stylized stuff, but this was fun. Painted in photoshop of course. The director added the title, logos and text at the bottom.
