Ralph Zavala key art design of 7 Kilos

This is another Key Art design that I emulated one of the greatest American artists bar none, Drew Struzan. He is the most prized artist used by the major studios. His posters illustrate the movie in such a way that he hooks the public imagination. I tried doing the same thing with 7 Kilos. I created the title treatment to emulate the crystal meth magnified.  While working at Laguna Films I met the director, he loved the poster but they decided to go into another direction. Which was this photo montage, I like the composition.

An exercise in composition. I loved how I arranged it, the banquet was to be in Los Angeles at the time. And I used the Minerva motif which is used in the state seal. I thought it all tied together well. I created it in Karen Robbins class when I studied Graphic Arts way back. I have to admit the colors are awful. Just thought I’d share. cca adult education ralph

Drew Struzan is the greatest Key Art designer of all time. I’m a big fan of the mans work. The work he does draws you in and introduces you to a story. This was a case study and exercise in photography, make up, and Photoshop, I created. Mexican Planet of the Apes.
