I wanted to create a design that makes a big splash through shape and movement. The larger than life figure is biking across one of Minnesota’s great lakes, weaving through unsuspecting sailboats.
I am a freelance illustrator and educator who is driven by the challenge of visual problem solving. I have had the honor of participating in Minneapolis ARTCRANK and enjoy being a part of this vibrant, creative community. My work has been featured in DPI Magazine, Applied Arts Magazine, American Illustration, CMYK, Creative Quarterly, and the Society of Illustrators West.
My ideas usually start with small thumbnail sketches to explore composition and design. Then I work the sketch to its finished size and explore a few different color palettes. I work 100% digitally on my tablet and use a range of Photoshop brushes.
This could be any lake in any place! This poster celebrates summer and defies all rules of gravity. :)
What I love about biking and hiking is the rhythm you create while in motion and how that repetition works to declutter and calm. It gives you a beat.
