Indiana Jones Illustration

I created this banner for the 2008 year-end party for Hewlett-Packard held in Los Angeles. My job was to create a 21 foot long piece of artwork depicting various employees of the company as if they were in an Indiana Jones movie. For the party, they had also created a movie in which they employees were super-imposed over the actual footage from the films. I didn't see the entire film, but the clips I did see were really amazing. My banner was sort of the movie poster for the event.

For something this big, it made the most sense to me to create a clean line drawing, scan and convert it all to vectors, and then work in Adobe Illustrator for the coloring and rendering. It was a really fun job and I was happy to see that the employees enjoyed it!
