Transmedia Generation Poster featuring Henry Jenkins

Saturday, June 16th, 2012

A few weeks ago I was commissioned by Jaroslav Švelch to create a poster featuring Henry Jenkins for the Transmedia Generation conference in the Czech Republic. Per Jaroslav’s suggestion, the poster features the Žižkov Television Tower as a very appropriate background. In case you’re interested, I found a video of Henry talking on Czech TV.

I recently acquired Manga Studio, and tried to make this my first illustration drawn with it, but I was not getting the degree of control I wanted, and I didn’t have time to practice much, so I rolled back to my traditional combination of Illustrator and Photoshop. Don’t get me wrong, I believe Manga Studio is actually a very powerful tool, and I am looking forward to become functional with it. I even used a fairly detailed sketch made with it as the starting point to the finished piece. Feel free to download the full resolution file I have in my flickr account, in case you’d like to make yourself a nice big badass print ^_^
