The hospital here has an annual health fair called Kids’ Day, something attended by about 800+ kids and their families. There are interesting exhibits, lots of information from health vendors, and the kids can get their hearing and vision checked, as well as puppy shots. Given the rural setting, odds are pretty good that this is about the only exposure some of them get to medical treatment all year.
On the upside, there’s the collateral material promoting the event. This year’s poster was much more solidly colorful than last year’s was:
I’ve got the PDF too if you want to see it fullscale: Kids’ Day PDF, 950 KB
This began life, as do a lot of my drawings, as a blueline sketch that I inked and scanned, then colored in Illustrator. LivePaint is simply tha’ bomb. And since it’s vector you can scale the image up pretty much infinitely without losing detail or quality.
In addition to the main graphic I did a few “pictures” of Dot and Lionel to illustrate some of the highlights.
Hopefully the first image won’t disturb even the most colourophobic among the readership. (You can just Google that one yourself.) On the whole the Kids’ Day material is generally my favorite; only in my first year here did I end up using clip art. (I’d only been here for about two weeks at the time. My style takes some acquainting, and it was too soon right then, sigh.)
By contrast, this was last year’s main piece:
It’s fun, but a little spare compared with the riotous exuberance of the balloony-inflated-people art for 2008.
Wonder what 2009 will look like…
