Shrinking Disney

Posted by

Princess and the Frog poster

When people talk to me about movies, I feel like a Mom-a-zoid. My Netflix recommends I watch Dora and Strawberry Shortcake. So when I need to think of an idea to create a minimalist movie poster, I naturally think of Disney- the king of big budget, lavish design. Think I did I good job shrinking over-the-top Disney down to minimalist size? I actually wanted to go simpler (with silhouettes) but didn’t find a graphic I like and I’m fresh out of amphibians.

Great news though! I finally┬ácompleted┬ásomething using GIMP! I probably could have created this just as well in Paint, and even faster in Picnik, but I am determined to learn hands-on how to tame this beast. The process was simple enough: open the graphic, fill with background, layer on some text. Done! Hey, it’s progress and I’ll take it!
