My final project for gd3! Take a strange word and make a poster for it. The poster had to have an element that was self generated, so all the backgrounds are paintings. Then one has vector drawing over it, another is paper cut out. The last was created using type as image. :) I am pretty proud of them, I like gloaming best..the other ones can jump off a cliff and die.
