the twelfth post of christmas
This post should officially mark the end of ‘the posts of Christmas’ but I’m enjoying this all a bit too much. I’m not sure when I’ll stop but it isn’t today. Too much of a good thing innit. Anyway, on that vague theme here’s a cover I worked on recently with a few friends. The theme for this particular pullout was EXCESS and the name of supplment is e2 (inventive, eh?) hence the e2XCESS stylisation.
My camera is pretty crappy so will upload the original file when I’m next in the office. Newsprint hasn’t been kind to the image. The original plan was to have some sort of post-apocalyptic capitalist three ‘kings’ but one of the girls pulled out so we had to come up with another idea to use what we had. As sick as it would have been to have the three girls garbed up with bling and brands I’m really pleased with what we ended up with. I really like that we ended up with something a bit less typically excessive as it would have been really easy to get something really kitsch and campy (and we have other shots to prove it).
Merry Excessmas, yeh?
