This was a going away gift for my dear friend and former mentee, Keiko Murayama. Keiko just started a new gig as a character designer, and I couldn't be happier for her! FOP's loss is Bread Winners' gain. This is Keiko's cat Yuki (and a ukulele... just because I throw them in wherever I can).

Rockin' For The Arts 2013!

I'll say this for my favorite fundraiser- It forces me to update my blog once a year (whether it needs it or not)! Every year we put on a rock concert at our local elementary school, and the proceeds all go toward keeping the school's arts programs afloat. This was our sixth year producing this event, and my sixth year designing the poster. I try to take a different approach each year, and this time around I decided to try designing the poster in the style of a well-known artist. I've always admired Matisse's work- in particular that of his paper-cut period (which- not coincidentally- is much easier to approximate than the style of say.. Renoir or Van Gogh). So here is the poster for our annual event, after the style of Henri Matisse. J'espère que vous l'aimez!
