Film Festival Illustrations


Campaign Illustrations

The Milwaukee Film Fest is a 15-day festival showcasing a wide array of films. For the 10th anniversary in conjunction with MFF’s operation of The Oriental Theatre on a year-round basis, we worked with the concept of a community which exists in a "dollhouse." We especially took inspiration from Wes Anderson film sets. Each room functions as its own individual illustration and together as a whole composition. I am honored to have been chosen to create the 10th anniversary art :)
