In the wetlands of North America, the Great Blue Heron is a symbol of a healthy ecosystem. Wetlands are hotbeds of biodiversity and when heron exist, it means nothing is contaminated (as herons eat fish, fish eat smaller fish and bugs, ect.). I'm not a bird-watcher, but it's pretty cool to see a heron. See them walking in the distance and you can easily picture how a dinosaur might have roamed around.
My poster art is a sort of tribute to the Blue Heron and biodiversity and is the culmination of over dozens of sketches and paintings. After not being able to capture a bold enough effect with paint, I decided to do most of it in Adobe Illustrator; however, I've attached a couple sketches below that show an original illustration and a sketch that most resembles the finish product.
Help preserve wetlands by contributing to local Sierra Club and Nature Conservancy chapters. These are no-bull organizations that put your money to good use.
(P.S. the cas:ev logo is something that evolved out of the poster)
Thanks for tuning in...
