Unused Poster Concept



This was my initial concept for the CSLP poster design--it's a program to promote reading, the theme was "make waves" so I did a giant squid and a bunch of puffins with waves crashing on towers of books and so forth. I think it's actually a stronger design, as such, but they decided this was more suitable for kids and less for the young adult side, so we went with a more serious kind of "sea-god" concept.

Pity, I liked the squid. We tried giving him an iPod and coffee to get him more teenager-like, and I was gonna give him a little goth puffin friend with combat boots...ah, well. Cartoony is really more my stong suit, but this is often the way with design, and they did have a valid point. And the sea god came out pretty nifty.

Still, one of these days I may paint the literary squid just for my own amusement.
