A Wicked Adaptation

A Wicked Adaptation

Images from a recent project inspired by 'Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West' by Gregory Maguire and the musical Wicked, which is itself an adaptation of this.

I was very much inspired by the aesthetic qualities of the film 'The Wizard of Oz' from 1939, and as such this brought a strong Art Deco theme into the work. The use of geometric shapes, colours and gradients were all carefully considered, as was the juxtaposition with the type.

The images are a poster like illustrations, marking emotional high points from the narrative, centred around the musical numbers from the show. They were all digitally produced using vector graphics.
