Knowledge and Beauty

I recently started up another blog I'm calling Knowledge and Beauty, where I aim to post art, design, and videos I find on the internet that strike me as particularly cool. A few days ago I blogged about the DVD art for Berlin Alexanderplatz by Eric Skillman. Finding it particularly striking, I decided to design a header for the blog in the same style. I started in pencil, went over it with sharpie, photographed it (my old point and shoot is officially dead so I used my iMac's camera, rough but okay for my purposes), and then used the pen tool in photoshop to trace the shapes and fill in the color, adding a slight texture and watercolor filter. I think I'll try this periodically when I come across text I really enjoy.
