I had the opportunity to design another illustration for the @georgiastraight . This week’s issue focusing on the BC Election 2020 held Saturday October 24. The art direction was to cast the party leaders as Circus Barkers enticing the audience and selling their promises. 

This was commissioned on a three day deadline from concept to final.

Animation with circus music created by the Georgia Straight design team.

Final vector image with fall colour palette approved and used as the cover for local newsletter.

Screen shot from thestraight.com with their collection of covers from 2020.

Original concept sketch that was rejected by Creative Director. They preferred to have all of the candidates act as circus barkers in front of a crowd. Luckily I was able to use some of the background elements here in my final design to save time.
