Do I need to explian?
Come on admit it. Have you seen a better looking South African ad than this one in 2011? It’s from the McCann Erickson SA ad agency and was directed by legendary director Keith Rose from Velocity, a film production company. The visuals effects, created by BlackGinger, are just out of this world and the soundtrack, by Queen, just works well with the visuals. I think this ad just puts South African advertising on another level. Nice work Velocity.
I have’nt been able to update my blog lately because this is what I’ve been working on. It’s an illustration of a bare-chested man with a hairy chest. I’m making fun of that “sexy 70’s look” men had on those old-school porn movies. I approached the project with a style I’m not used to, which are the geometric elements in the poster. I used Illustrator to create the geometric shapes and used Photoshop to create a strong contrast in the poster. I plan to print it and paste it around the area that I’m based, where the are a lot creatives, to drive traffic to my blog.
