This is the third revision of the Austin Nature & Science Center Trade Counter brochure, which I took far too long to complete. Too easy to get sidetracked when working from home as a volunteer graphic designer.

I finished another study collage, focusing this time on fashion in an attempt to improve my costume designs in the future. This particular piece presented two big challenges - I had to wrestle with the color I chose for the background, Pantone's color of the year, Tango Tangerine. The second challenge was dealing with the mostly vertical subjects I chose to depict, and filling the gaps I had left. I also enjoyed playing with keeping the faces to the minimal shapes of light and shadow and avoiding painting features in.
