The Spectrum design was originally intended for teaser art, but it proved very popular with the company and cast members. I really like the sense of mood and tone in it, and it incorporates the light spectrum metaphor which is at the center of Overman's character. Patrick's face is really haunting...
The Dossier design is much more closely related to the show... Much more "superhero" in concept. It was a hell of a lot of fun to design the little details. We ended up splitting the print run, ordering 2500 of each... first time Nosedive has put two different show cards out.

In 1988, the world discovered a man who was indestructible, impervious to pain, and able to destroy a tank with his mind.
In the early- to mid-nineties, a craze where vigilantes dressed up in flashy costumes and fought crime took the nation by storm.
Now it's 2005. The Twin Towers of the World Trade Center are still standing. Hurricane Katrina has decimated New Orleans. The Iraq War is coming to a close. And several former costumed crimefighters realize their marks on the world are more akin to those of has-been rock stars.
This is Colorful World, Nosedive Productions' latest full-length production that takes on the superhero genre. Far from a pulpy comic book-style romp, James Comtois and Pete Boisvert (The Adventures of Nervous-Boy) envision a world radically changed by the arrival of an invincible man, and not necessarily for the better.
