ABOUT THE PROJECT
B oyhood is a 2014 American coming-of-age drama film written and directed by Richard Linklater. The film was shot intermittently over the course of a 12-year period, from 2002 to 2013, and depicts the adolescence of a young boy in Texas growing up with divorced parents.
Although the original key art for the film is now kind of classic, I thought it wasn’t efficient enough to empathize the 12 year journey of the film and the main character. For the first poster, I worked pretty detailed on the source images to make it into one collage. Although both of the images belong to the same person, his facial features changed through the years, challenging me to work with tools like liquify etc.
The second poster is my take on the original key art and inspired by The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo. Color matching, creating shadows and text on the grass were some of the challenges.
