DANGER WOMEN

this is an invitation I designed and arted for some Brooklyn ladies.
They gave me free range to do as I wished, and I told them I wanted to do a pulp cover film noir poster treatment
Stephanie Dixon Shannon Brunette Pulp Noir Danger Women
this is the completed postcard front image
Stephanie Dixon Danger Women
 this is a detail of the ink drawing I did of model Stephanie that was later digitally composed into the invite

as you can see, I borrowed some of the dress (and general mood) from this old shot of Rita Hayworth

and for Shannon's hair I lifted this hairstyle from an old photo of Veronica Lake

this is the Postcards backside
the typeface is called Betty Noir
