  • This movie poster design, made in Photoshop, was inspired by the idea of a film about three generations of African-American women that tells the story of their trials and triumphs as well as lessons learned and forgotten. The name of the film is an ode to my paternal grandmother Lucy Mae, maternal grandmother Ethel Mae, and my mother Carla Louise.
