Concept Poster for Silkwood & Co.

Just a concept sketch for a poster for Silkwood & Co.  I'm working on the final, but don't know when I'll be able to get it up.

The drawing is done in charcoal.  I put down a layer of charcoal powder in my sketchbook (and I'm glad I was able to scan it in quickly, 'cause I haven't been able to spray it and the stuff is smudging and getting everywhere!) and pulled out the lights with a kneaded eraser and went back in with a charcoal pencil for the darks.  I scanned in the drawing, found a picture of old paper, pulled them both into Photoshop and set the charcoal drawing to "multiply".  Then I played with the levels and the color balance until I liked how it looked.  I added the type in InDesign.

I'm not sure if I am going to keep the font/logo you see in this one.  I've been playing with several other styles.  I'll try and put something up with those soon and you can let me know what you think!
