Artwork for Aerothlon in Mexico
I had a commission last week to do a banner design for the Aerothlon sports events in Mexico in Ensenada, Baja California. The event is a race on bike, paraglider and foot, so all these had to be included in the image. I initially went with a design incorporating the village, but was later asked to do more of a desert feel. The colour sketch below was approved. I was also asked to include a caricature of Pal Takats, who in the final image is the character who is landing. Here is a bit of detail from the final image, and also the rough sketches. Unfortunately just as I was finishing it seems the Government of the area have refused permission, so I will probably have to adapt the background at some future time to the Valle del Bravo.
