Little White lies cover illustration

Project Outline
In a D&AD brief set by Little White Lies magazine, the task was to create a cover illustration of the best film of 2011. The magazine provided a list of films from which to choose from. I choose Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and created a cover illstration of Gary Oldman. I drew multiple portraits of him in order to get a good feel for his character "smiley". Once i felt comfortable with drawing smiley, I created the final cover portrait which was in a large format then scaled this down to fit the magazine. I choose a font which suited the decietful nature of the film which i set by hand and overlayed over the image.
