Animated Website (Coming Soon)
It's about to get spooky with two sisters who love exploring all things paranormal! I've always had a love for the macabre side of life. Tim Burton, Vincent Price, and the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland were my constant inspirations in art school so needless to say, this was a perfect fit. I was very excited for the opportunity to create a project like this as a 'grownup' in the 'real' world.
I knew the color palette would be important. We wanted it to be scary but playful – more 'bring the kids', less 'sleep with one eye open.' With that in mind, I chose colors that were both dark and vibrant, eerie yet somehow happy. The first part I drew was the house. I love Victorian architecture and my thoughts immediately went to the cover of a favorite childhood book about a creepy old San Francisco home and a green cat. The rest followed easily from there. My wife and I love photographing old cemeteries (who doesn't?) so tombstones were a must. And of course the two sisters had to be ghosts. I polished it off with some vintage horror movie typography, giving it a vibe that would have made Bella Lugosi grin.
This project was so much fun, I absolutely could not wait to dig deeper and design their website. The animated site design is currently in progress, check out the sneak peek below... if you dare.
