The South Pasadena Arts Crawl

I recently got the opportunity to make this season’s South Pasadena Arts Crawl poster! I love that the posters are always done by local artists, and a great variety of art is always featured. After a little brainstorming back and forth with the art director, we hit upon this idea- something that celebrates women’s history month, an exciting nighttime procession, and, my personal favorite bit, a nod to the Olympic Games white tiger mascot.

The finished art for the South Pasadena Arts Crawl poster

Each element was painted separately in black and white ink, then put together and colored in Photoshop. It’s like the next evolution of the process I used in college, where I would draw all of my elements separately, play with moving them around to make the perfect composition, then transfer them all onto my watercolor paper.
