Weird Weather

Weird Weather is a gorgeous little play - a quirky story about love of all kinds, and in particular the magical bubble of young love which makes you see the universe in a new way for a while. It features a boy who watches his girlfriend through a telescope, which gave me some interesting visual ideas. The young lovers contrast with a middle-aged couple whose love has become tired, so for me this poster was all about creating the contrast between the universe seen by the young lovers,and the reality of life. I liked the idea of collaging together several elements rather than creating a realistic scene, as the play itself is unnaturalistic, and that also enabled me to be a bit freer with the composition as relative sizes didn't really matter. I found some lovely images of nebulae which give an other-worldly feel to the sky, which contrast with the plainer image of the realistic town against a night sky.
