Turn of the century French influence utlized for full effect. Standing on the shoulders of giants instead of sitting on them. Can't go wrong with a face like that either. No wonder this got poster of the week.
actually there is something else to say about this poster...in real life it's even better! the sparkle on the tooth is in semi-transparent silver...and it's all on this green (of his shirt) paper...with a nice almost linen texture to it. This poster's been really inspiring/challenging to me...awesome work.
