This was a metal ‘tacker’ Sign for A program Art directed by Dave Penn. The Center art was supplied in Illustrator format. The wood, the corner brackets, and the bolts were shot separately, and scanned in.
I made a composite of the elements to look like a framed piece, then made it look like it was printed on a metal base, then of course, my favorite part. . .adding dents, dings, scratches, wrinkles and RUST! (oh, and the nails too, those were fabricated as well as the rust stains)
