Old Fashion

Old Fashioned Short

 

In honor of my friend Graham who loves a good Old Fashioned, I made this decorative poster. The drink itself I imported and converted using Live Trace. I reflected it and used a gradient to get the reflection, and did a little bit of blending work on the edge to make the reflection look more realistic. I used an opacity mask on the main lettering for “OLD” to get the repeating diagonal lines on the left side of the letter. The gold filigree on the border I drew by hand, which took a hot minute. I went online to try to get some idea of the Art Deco style and looked at the movie poster for the Great Gatsby. There is a faint repeating background using an ornamental shape I made. I originally intended the shape to be part of the border, but I think it turned out much better as is.
