So, last month the illustration department at the College for Creative Studies was approached to do a poster design for the Detroit Zoo. There were 54 submissions, here is mine:I was trying to go for something that would appeal to everyone and had to stray away from my typical sarcasm and humor. I started with the animal designs, then played around with the color fields on the computer - which is again out of my normal element.
Yesterday, the zoo announced the winners: four honorable mentions, a first through fifth place and a best of show - which is the poster to be used and somehow, i took best of show!!:
Now, my poster will be used at the detroit zoo as the official poster, my art becomes part of the zoo's permanent collection and i also received a scholarship!
exciting and wonderful news from my world!
