Painted illustration for Poster.
I painted the final traditionally by using Caran D'ache water-soluble wax pastels with a brush. I scanned it into photoshop to touch up a few last details, added the type and crop marks and sent it off.
I added colours in photoshop. Using photoshop to do a colour comp is a much more convenient way to play with colour options than doing it traditionally. Sent it in for colour approval before going starting the final painting.
Preliminary rough sketches ideas for this 2012 poster for International Women's Day for the Ontario Federation of Labour. This year's theme and concept was to have women helping other women up stairs with the word union on the side of the stairs.
