One of my clients asked me to do an illustration to be used for poster art, coffee mugs and other media for his upcoming conference. We met and discussed various text items that needed to be included as well as what kind of imagery he was looking for. It was to have a Maine theme focusing on children learning. Here is the result.
It was a really fun project that was completed concept to final art within a week. I used pen and ink for the main part of the illustration, then colored a high resolution scan in photoshop. I then brought the entire piece into Illustrator where I incorporated the text. I'm happy to say, we're already discussing what next year's conference art might look like.
