Sex (1-8) - Title Page Spreads

For the ongoing comic book "Sex", I was asked to create a series of double page spreads to act as title pages for each chapter.

These pages needed to evoke the mood of the story, with the protagonist discovering his city as if for the first time. To do this I took a series of photographs of large buildings from a low viewpoint, emphasizing the overwhelming, inhuman scale of them. Then I created a color overlay which would echo the main color used on the cover of each issue, heavily rasterizing each image into a bold duotone.

Overlaying these images is a tightly condensed, oversized title, with the usual legal blocks of text manipulated into tall or long blocks to act as graphic elements en masse.

(The comic is available from comic book stores each month, or online in a digital format.)
