Festival event guide illustration

The Client: I illustrated this image for the cover of the Cairde Festival event guide.

The concept shows a group of traveling musicians making their way across a playfully coloured landscape. To reach there destination they have to use teamwork and share their resources in order to arrive in time for the festival. I used the ‘Town Musicians of Bremen’ to inform the graphic structure and overall concept.

My process I use pencil charcoal and watercolours to realise conceptual work. Once I have a concept that I am happy with I refine and enhance the idea in photoshop and ultimately take it into illustrator to create finished vector graphic illustrations.
