Another “back in the day” illustration was for the Ottawa Bluesfest (2010). It was my honour to work a couple of summers at the Ottawa music festival while I got my new digital feet under me. I had gone back to school for increasing my knowledge for digital work and this was an opportunity to expand my portfolio. I ended doing more web than I was looking for, but that’s another story.
I still have to say, the Bluesfest was the most fun I’d had in years. The people there work full-tilt-boogie on prepping for the ‘fest, and wow is it fun!
This is a full Illustrator drawing using gradation shapes for the car, patterning for the holly; drop in some text and a logo and you have a holiday card. In the top edging of the chromework you’ll find the word “BLUESFEST”.
Right now we’re in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic and nearing the holidays. The vaccines are coming and hope is building for a better 2021. In the meantime, wear your mask, physical distance and see your family online.
Why? …because you’ll save lives and we can bring back the Ottawa Bluesfest sooner.
