I have been playing around with different stain colors, and experimenting with different types of wood... different ways of attaching the canvas to the wood... etc. etc. :)
Right now I have 5 posters created, and I am planning to work in my existing insects series! I have SOO many ideas I want to turn into posters. :) I still need to test shipping them, and make sure I can protect them in transit. I imagine i will mail them in mailing tubes like my 16x20 sized prints. But I'll be designing new packaging for the big guys too!
These are printed on the very same canvas as the other larger prints in my shop.
Each poster was heavily inspired by vintage educational science posters. I've used my pen tablet to draw these and I have really enjoyed getting back towards the illustrated type of prints. My work in the past has leaned towards the graphic side of design. I am not phasing out my old style though- just adding a little more variety to my etsy shop. These have a fresh, clean, organic feel to them. I've been trying to develop a consistent style to each. I finally think I have it down. Keeping the backgrounds clean and white help to modernize them a bit. :) I found a font I loved and paid a commercial license to use it. It was just what I was looking for!
:) I've been feeling super inspired, and I am SO anxious to get these listed... but I am probably still a week or so away. I am thinking I'll design a couple more before I launch them!
Do you have a favorite of the 4? The fifth one isnt shown, but it is a compantion to the antler poster! :)
