The brief for this cover was to take the clients supplied flat graphics and make this look like it was an authentic boxed child's game from the 1950's. To achieve this, custom Photoshop brushes were used to paint in surface cracks and add wear and tear and make it look as if it was printed on cardboard and photographed years later.
Front cover commission for the Washingtonian Magazine. Illustrating the feature story, '50 Great Fun Places to Work'. This uses a mix of 3D for the main castle structure and photo-montage, but mostly, photomontage.
Commissioned for Boston magazine this was a creative photomontage brief realised using custom brushes, and dirt charges to create the splashes.
