I was commissioned by The Vancouver Opera to create a series of posters for their 2009-2010 season of operas. This one is for Madame Butterfly
. I spent a lot of time researching costumes and time periods and listening to and watching operas. The images will be used on outdoor advertising in Vancouver, print collateral, posters, and the web. Some of the sketches for the project and a clip of the Chinese soprano Ying Huang performing one of the songs are below.
