This is a poster design for a theatre rendition of the Life of Pi by Yann Martel. If you are unaware of the story it is about a boy called Pi who is castaway in a lifeboat with a Tiger called Richard Parker. I wanted to convey the sense of loneliness so placed the small white lifeboat in the large open ocean. Since Richard Parker is actually an extension of Pi’s personality created to keep himself somewhat sane I added the Tiger eyes that are part of his ever watching psyche. The Indian style text reflects the books beginning setting in India.
