Just a quick post to show a design I did for Bowling for Boobs (#bowlingforboobs). Numerous groups take part in events such as this one in an attempt to raise awareness for breast cancer research. This illustration started as a t-shirt design, and I decided to expand upon it and turn it into a poster.
While this design is my own creation, it was heavily influenced by the work of Adam Turman, a local Twin Cities muralist and poster designer whose work I’m quite fond of. If you’re a cyclist or beer enthusiast in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, you’re no doubt familiar with his work. Any similarities between this image and his posters are completely intentional. You might even call this fan art.
I have a friend and neighbor who is a breast cancer survivor, and for the past couple of years she’s participated in a local Relay for Life. Visit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life website if you’re interested in donating to the cause.
As always, I’d love to hear what you think. Follow now, comment often, and check back soon to see more of my work!
