The Fugitive - Season 4

PLEASE NOTE: The case for which I designed this cover can be purchased at http://www.casetopia.com/8_Disc_DVD_Case_w_3_Trays_Black_27mm_p/d8blk-27mm.htm

This cover is the fourth of a set for all four seasons of the classic TV series (1963-1967) starring David Janssen. It is sized for a case with a 27mm spine, but will also fit the clear keepcase (1 inch = 25.4mm spine) used in the complete set with a bit of resizing, cropping, or about 1mm of trimming of the left and right sides. For anyone using the clear cases, I’m also offering some inside art.

AFAIK, no one else has posted custom covers for this series anywhere, so some background on this project may be of interest. The studio art for the individual season cases in the 2012 complete set ("The Most Wanted Edition") was disappointingly nondescript. I’d never done a custom cover, but the sight of the studio artwork motivated me to produce something that would look decent on the shelf. As someone who was 16 when the series premiered and who faithfully watched the original broadcasts, I was determined to create a look that would evoke the atmosphere of the series—and something that true fans would appreciate. There's virtually no high-resolution artwork available for The Fugitive, so I decided to go with a simple approach using my own screen captures of iconic and/or memorable moments.

Two years ago I posted my first version of this set on two other cover sites, but was never entirely satisfied with the fronts and spines in that version. For me the main problem was that the title treatment (presented in solid yellow letters as in Season Four) was only a rough approximation of the original. With the benefit of some Photoshop experience in the interim, the fronts and spines in this new version have been completely revamped and now display a fully authentic title treatment that I rendered from a screencap of the title card from one of the “Act” openings. I’m thoroughly satisfied with how this revised set turned out, and have no intention of doing another revision—unless the series gets a Blu-ray release (admittedly a long shot)!
