An Addictive Series Of Events : Netflix’s Crime Drama Narcos

There are just too many shows to keep up with. However one of the best dramas I have watched in a long time has got to be Narcos on Netflix. I didn’t expect to like it so much, but I managed to plow through the current 2 seasons.

If you like drug crime films like Carlito’s Way, Scarface, Traffic, and Sicario. you’ll definitely love Narcos. It’s an interesting show that follows the rise and fall of drug lord Pablo Escobar and the Medellin cartel

I felt like designing a poster for the series. I wanted to make a callback to the old Columbian Coffee Juan Valdez TV ads. In the end I mashed up a old logo layout into a line cut illustration I did of Wagner Moura’s portrayal of Pablo Escobar. After some Photoshop brush editing and cocaine texturing, I came up with the final design. I cannot wait for the next new season to start.
