Point Blank – Coppelià

Pointe Blank was an exhibition I took part in for The Birmingham Royal Ballet. A group of 27 Illustrators were asked to reinterpret the classic story of ‘Coppélia’ in a style of their choosing. Here is what I came up with.

Basically, I wanted to try telling the story as a comic strip but I also wanted to have a go at creating a classic 1940s Movie inspired poster. I ended up combining the two ideas together.

I also took part in the exhibition a year later for the ballet ‘Hobson’s Choice’.
