The main premise of my Senior thesis was to create a series of six digital editorial illustrations that focused on representing some of society’s most influential personalities through the style of horror themed movie posters. Based on what area of expertise the pop culture figure resonated with, it opened a door of opportunities to use what they are known for and apply it to my illustrations for me to capture. Whether it was a defining physical feature or an iconic style of clothing, the main goal of the thesis was to recreate some of society's most familiar faces in a horror setting while still being recognizable.
