For Nancy, this is the fourth poster in the birthday series. I wanted to try another art deco-like travel poster that she could put in her condo.
Nancy loves pelicans and her daughter told me that she doesn’t have pictures of them in flight so this seemed like a good subject.
I’ve been looking over art deco advertisements and travel posters in a book I bought recently. Because some of my favorites have sparse imagery, simple geometry, and vivid colors I approached this poster with that mindset.
While very sterile in their arrangement, I used the rays and arcs in the sky to imply the sun.
