The April assignment for Lilla Rogers’ MATS Bootcamp was to create a poster for her upcoming live arts event this summer in Brighton, England. The focus was to be on hand-lettering—which, of course, I was thrilled about! Though I’ve never been to Brighton, the pier and colorful atmosphere I found in researching brought to mind a fun & carnival-esque vibe, (reminiscent of my beloved Coney Island!) so I decided to play off of that & depict interesting characters traveling by all means to this exciting event. We were given a palette to work with—a bit softer than I’m used to working with, but a fun challenge.
