Kudos to Sanja Jansa for this week's inspired Illustration Friday topic: Homage.
Picasso said "All art is theft"; I prefer to think that all art is homage. Intentionally or unintentionally, I continue to pay homage to the artists that have influenced me.
This poster is an intentional homage to Tim Burton. The font is very Burtonesque. And speaking of Tim Burton, everyone should see his adaptation of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. It's lovely and demented and I'm downright obsessed with it.
This poster design was donated to Los Altos Youth Theater in California. The line art is scratch board, with digital color.
