I have just finished the poster for J’s tour kick off, which features a colour monster and some watery word balloons. Under a serious time crunch I probably borrowed a little more inspiration than I would have liked from other show posters that I’ve seen- it feels vaguely familiar- but it was fun to make. It was a great opportunity to play with simple shape filled with a more carefully drawn pattern.
I’ve also been using gift giving as an opportunity to play with watercolour and ideas. I made some cards for co workers, finally giving myself a good reason to use rainbow washes in lettering. I also made my dad’s father’s day gift out of a frame I found at the Sally Anne’s, which turned out to be the perfect fit for some water colour post cards.
One thought on “new poster and art as gifts”
