Arden Theatre Canadiana Illustration

Hello! Today, I’m featuring the sketch to final artwork for a project for Arden Theatre. For the second year I have been selected to illustrate their season materials. I provide a final main illustration, spot illustrations, colour palettes and typography recommendations to their design team and they bring it to life. This year, they wished to celebrate this country with booking acts exclusively from Canada. We developed a look that felt like vintage travel posters mixed in with iconic Canadiana landscape.
