I made this for a design competition for UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization.) Their theme for 2010 is the "International Year for the Rapprochement of Cultures." I had no clue what "rapprochement" meant before doing this. Its basically harmonious relations between cultures. So my concept for the poster was to show plants from various nations "growing from the same garden." Same roots, same soil. The intertwining hands were to show that harmonious relation as well. And there are little vine-like speech bubbles growing to show the development of dialogue among cultures and how that may also positively influence progression in relations among nations. Looking at this again I kind of feel like the hands look like they could be growing from a grave so thats something I need to improve. Still need to do some work on this but had fun with it.
Soon enough I'll post up some pillows I'm working on. I had fun with the project but could have been much better if I didnt wait until the last minute. Things are so much more enjoyable when you dont procrastinate, i must say. But anyway, also made a poster for a friend and hopefully that turned out ok for him. I'll put it up on here eventually as well. But here are some magnets I was selling at Rumors, a local fashion boutique. Check 'em out: http://www.rumorsrva.com/ . The owners are sweethearts, mad cool, and inspiring, and i definitely appreciate them allowing me to hustle there :) hah
