Color pencils and Photoshop, 22" x 28"
The brief was to make an advertisement out of a famous painting. I chose the creation of Adam. ’The Creation of Adam’ is a fresco by Michelangelo, forming part of the Sistine Chapel ceiling. It illustrates the Biblical creation from the Book of Genesis in which God breathes life into Adam, the first man. I decided to advertise beer because I thought that incorporating something as irreverent as beer into something as serious as the creation of man would grab everyone’s attention. The concept I tried to capture was the Genesis of Beer.
I used color pencils for the entire piece so that I could correctly capture every tone and muscle shown. I then used Photoshop to add the logo rather than drawing it on so that it would look more professional.
