If you are using artwork, the larger the reproduction the greater chance for graininess. A graphic artist can only do so much.

I was very lucky to have the posters done by Ian G. They’re photographs so the actual posters are brighter than what you see.
These pictures are from pre-display set-up (another Blog). The posters giver you a better idea of how they actually look.
What we found was that Ruby, when blown up past a certain point, looked grainy. Sylvia, because Randy (the artist) drew mostly her head on 11×14” (28×35.5 cm) paper whereas in Ruby, on the same size sheet, he drew the Queen’s entire body with background.
Ian made a number of samples and sizes. My brother Andy, put them up on a wall and asked people to say what they liked, based on first impression.
We also made 8.5×11” (21.5×28 cm) posters in both colour and black and white for Sylvia and Ruby with just colour.
Next Blog is designing T-shirts and getting them printed this coming Saturday…
