Notes: Poster illustration commissioned by Skeleton Crew for their City of Shadows web-series; text by Dustin Sklavos.  The theme is a complex one  – it’s about coping with psychological injury suffered through unavoidable attraction.  Allyson is still recovering from her last relationship when an accident renders her comatose; as a result she must confront her demons or risk losing her life.  The story is painted with surrealism and psychological horror with an understated film noir style.  I wanted to capture all of these elements in a single, clear, image.
