This is a follow-up to my Zatanna: Flying Cards illustration I posted earlier. I always intended to take that illustration and turn it into a mock magician poster. Finally got some time to do it!
Looked at some old magician posters via Google images and tried to work in a similar design sense. Resisted the urge to make it look like a vintage poster with an aged texture. Instead, tried to treat it like a modern poster with a retro feel to it. Hence, the vibrant colors still in place.
