How could I not want to put that into stone?
Composing a design I was satisfied with took a little bit of time.
I found an image that had nice detail of his ship but Benny himself, while happy, wasn’t quite what I was looking for. I wanted to capture the almost hysterical elation that’s shown on his face with a wide mouth and tightly squeezed eyes.
So I rearranged the image with a new Benny and sent him behind the spaceship instead of standing in front of it. That composition made the most sense to me as it reinforced the impression that he represents the core tone of the piece, rather than just being a feature off to the side. I brought the “SPACESHIP!” text down to fill the blank space at the bottom and to act as a solid base of the composition, and also curved it out slightly but noticeably. This left a spare area at the top that I’ve intentionally left free for personalisations.
