Five go on a Western Adventure

2017 Studio: Painting Practice

Series of billboards to promote the new GWR trains and revalue rail in the hearts and minds of the public. Working alongside other talented painters at Painting Practice, we sought to bring back the 30s and 40s golden age of travel posters and couple that with Enyd Blighton’s Famous Five, featuring them as the protagonists of the campaign. 

Painting, Look Development

My main focus on this project was achieving and finalizing the look of the billboards (train, background and characters).

The Famous Five. The look aims to respect the original 40s book covers while stylistically blending it with a more complex background.

The billboards were put up across the UK
