Anonymous is a modern adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey. It is a story about the journey of an immigrant, named Anon through the United States as he searches for his mother. Anon encounters collage of people - from barflies to sinister one-eyed butcher with his pet bird, hospitable Indian family, shady truck driver and many more.
My design concept is based on the name symbolism from the Odyssey combined with distinct use of color and texture. The costumes create a world that becomes real and surreal at the same time with a mix of real-life and fantasy characters that Anon meets on his journey.
