Photos From Chicago
This month has a big workload crammed into it. Pins, posters and pizza projects. First off, I designed a little Sasquatch Festival pin featuring a rainbow-toting sasquatch that was sold in all of the festival's merchandise booths.
Next on the pin list--a pair of paint-related gold pins for the non-profit Urban Artworks. Offered as rewards for fundraising, I came up with a paintbrush similar to their logo as well as paint splattered overalls.
The nice folks at the Bellevue Farmers Market asked me to design some merch for them. I came up with a poster featuring a whole bunch of happy people interacting at the market, a classic style apple crate for their tees, and a little 1" strawberry basket enamel pin (complete with a branded backer).
As part of a fundraiser, Seattle-based creative agency We Are Unicorns invited some artists to each put their art on pizza boxes. I came up with this flamingo eating pizza (an obvious choice).
Lastly, and most importantly I illustrated a poster for my dad's book reading in Chicago. His latest book, "Chicago's Grand Midway", is due out mid-June and I wanted to surprise him by working with one of the bookstores to create a poster for the event. It's illustrated in a more modern style, but each building is based on photos of specific buildings from the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. He and I will be in Chicago for the event, so make sure to come see it and hear the discussion.
