A children's theatre production in Huntington, West Virginia wanted a poster that added grandiosity to their smaller production.
Superman is typically seen while flying, and you the viewer are right along side him. For this poster I wanted to take the view that a typical citizen of Metropolis would have of the boy in blue. You're walking along minding your own business, when all of a sudden a low rumble in the distance, and slight tremble in the ground. You look up to see a flying man and your adrenaline surges at this rare opportunity to see him.
What a thrill, and what a fitting image for the theater production.
