Ode To Breakfast At Tiffany's

During my time at The Art Institute of Houston I took an Illustrator course. One of our projects, and my most favorite, was to design a poster of any celebrity of our choosing. Since Audrey Hepburn is one of my all time favorite actresses, and Breakfast At Tiffany's is simply one of the best she has done, I chose to create an ode you could say to Breakfast At Tiffany's. 

I designed the poster to resemble a Tiffany's box, bow and all. I used a fancy font for the title "Audrey Hepburn", one that would stand out and added some pearls to the "H" to match the pearls in her hair and around her neck. For the quote, which is an Audrey Hepburn quote, I mixed a cursive font with a sans-serif to give it that elegant but simple look.

I really enjoyed illustrating Audrey Hepburn. It was one of my first time using the pen tool in Illustrator. I drew everything myself, down to the pearls, which were drawn one by one. It was a lot of work, a lot of long hours, but in the end I'm happy with the outcome.
