WPA: Othello - 2008

This was another WPA-inspired poster, again focusing on Orson Welles, and again using a film version he did of a Shakespeare play as the basis for a poster.

I had done the Welles portrait (when he played the title character in a 1955 film) years earlier, but I always liked it, and thought it would work really well as an image to build a poster around.

I had the toughest time figuring out how to lay in the text, and looking at it now I'm not sure I got it totally right, but maybe that's just my inner Iago whispering doubts into my ear...
