These are the finished signs I illustrated & designed for Parks Canada, Georgian Bay National Park. I’m really pleased with how this project turned out, and had a lot of fun working on it! It was a super quick turnaround, I had to burn the midnight oil to complete these paintings in two weeks (from research to sketching to painting to scanning to graphic design.) Whew, I’m really ready for the weekend! The four signs (1.5 x 2 feet each) are going to be posted this March 2007 at the Georgian Bay National Park, to explain why the new boardwalks have been put in to protect the Canada’s beautiful natural beaches. I tell you it made me really homesick working on this while I’m here in Australia!
…and here are some close ups of my favourite bits, I had so much fun painting these.
My husband made it his personal duty to make sure that the bass looked beautiful!
…and this is my favouritest favourite bit of all, Mr. Toad.
