Now that school is out, I’m trying to finish this poster. The end is definitely in sight. Here is the update…I added the Apollo fountain, jeep, cricket player, opera singer, and fisherman. The top of the poster is almost done. I have a couple empty spaces where I’d like to fill in a couple missing items. I will probably add a rugby player right above the ferry. To the left of the Sydney Tower, I want to add some more details from the Royal Botanical Gardens. The bottom of the poster is where I will be spending most of my time. I extended the Queen Victoria Building and the bricks to eliminate the white space. I have a couple more figures to complete. Plus, I want to add in a couple drinking coffee and the night markets on The Rocks. After that is done…it is time to add in the details. I’d like to reference a couple streets and the 2000 Olympics. I wish I knew of some famous Sydney residents, but it doesn’t help that I am an American. I might have to avoid that because I don’t want to just add someone like Crocodile Dundee for the heck of it.
As I look at it now, I know this is going to be a success. The feel is definitely different than the Chicago poster which was part of the plan. I wanted it to be similar so you could tell it was the same artist, but I didn’t want it to be just another landscape poster. I’m very excited to complete this!
