Creative Sightings 1

Welcome to the new and improved Creative Sightings. I felt a few changes were in order, so from now on Creative Sightings will no longer consist of individual posts for each sighting, confined to a subsection of my site. Instead, all recent sightings will be collected together into bumper regular blog posts.

Captain America Poster

Starting the proceedings off is this wonderfully illustrated retro poster for Captain America: The First Avenger. Sadly it’s not being used to advertise the film, instead it’s only a limited edition given to members of the film’s crew.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the new Creative Sightings format, which as before, gives you the opportunity to suggest a sighting of your own, even if it’s your own work you’d like to promote, just drop me a message containing details of the sighting along with the link. And look out for a new issue of Creative Sightings!
