Life is a dream

Concept, illustration, Photoshop trickery and design for promotional poster, leaflet and programme for the World Class Birmingham Opera Company, headed by the infamous Graham Vick.

To tie in with the theme and story of the Opera about blurring the boundaries between dreaming and sleeping the illustration depicts imagined states of restless sleep and dreaming as if scribbled down in a dream diary. Contrasting with the usual ‘in your face’ designs of posters the subtle detailed design invites the viewer to come in closer.
