Students read this beautiful essay by Brian Doyle and created a poster for it. I illustrated all of the elements of the poster and outlined them by hand. I carefully chose my color palette and illustrative style to convey the emotion and fragility that was evident in the essay.
I chose to have a more organic layout to reflect the life and energy that the essay referenced. I added a background texture that serves to activate white space, as well as symbolize both waves and wind simultaneously.
