his is an image I developed with the intention of submitting it to the Haitian Poster Project
. Artists submit an editon of 25 signed and numbered posters to be sold online to benefit Haitian relief. The same group did posters for the Katrina Hurricane to help New Orleans. Artists either need to pay to print the edition themselves or find a printer to donate their services. Since I did this as a 4-color image I would have to adapt it to silkscreen it in fewer colors. I'm still determining how I'll print these, so if you are a printer or have suggestions let me know. I just may print the edition on my epson. Stay tuned.
About the idea:
When I was thinking about a Haiti poster, I guess I had the Doctors without Borders charity in mind, no doubt due to the piece
I did for David Plunkert's Spur Design "Heads for Haiti" show.
I was thinking how cool it would be just to have a doctor breaking through a wall or border to aid where needed.
t one point I noticed that Print Magazine
was doing a Tote Bag for Charities contest on their site. Seems they commissioned ten artists / designers to do a 2 color tote bag design for a given charity. They also asked for submissions and that chosen entries would be featured in the magazine and some designs produced and sold in their on-line store to raise money for charities. Christoph Niemann was already doing a design or image for Doctors without Borders but I submitted mine anyway. I'm sure his will be outstanding as always. Anyway, don't know if I made the cut or not, stay tuned.
Oh, btw I re-did the image here for two colors. It's an interesting process to revise artwork for limited colors or other uses.
