This year’s brief was to create an A3 poster based on the ballet Giselle which is set in Rhineland, Germany in the Middle Ages. That Albrecht guy was a real jackass so I’ve made him puny.
Pointe Blank 4 contributor Peter Donnelley has spoken about his creative process over on Behance, saying:
"Primarily I wanted to avoid illustrating a scene from the story as I felt it was too obvious. The lilly acts as a metaphor for both beauty and death here and allowed me to focus on a clean and graphic approach with the artwork. I feel if it is to work as a poster it needs to be clear and easily understood at a distance. The story takes place in medieval Rhineland, Germany, with elements of the gothic and macabre so I pushed the title lettering and woodblock style to reflect that period of time."

While the new pieces will as usual be posted online at www.pointeblank.co.uk, we’ll also be displaying framed prints at the Baby Grand Studio, Belfast Grand Opera House, 6-9pm.
