Fly Away Home, if you haven’t seen it, is gorgeous film about a father’s love, adventure, and emerging from loss. I’ve always related strongly to the heroine, and I wanted to see if I could communicate my love for this film in a poster.

I wanted make this poster strongly about positive and negative shape, but also capture the likenesses of Anna Paquin and Jeff Daniels in an impressionistic way. I chose a rich fall color palette and had a blast with hand-drawn type.

Watercolor is still a relatively unfamiliar medium for me, especially this wet-on-wet approach. I had to paint it a couple times. The first time, I worked too quickly and didn’t give the layers time to dry. The second time, things went better.
