updated with a second rider:
ART CRANK 2017 ARTWORK
Here is the final art for the print - ended up playing with the scale of the rider vs the environment - I think this way gives it a really cool almost prehistoric kind of vibe - exploring uncharted climbs!
ART CRANK 2017 PRINT CONCEPT
I thought it could be a neat idea to make this year's print a sort of thematic continuation of the one we did in 2015, that one was a lone rider in some dense woods - the idea here would be a pair of riders climbing a steep mountain pass cut through more dense thriving foliage. Stylistically I would like to do this one in a more clean cut, modern and geometric execution while still capturing the feeling of exploration and wonder from the first print. This idea is ripe for adding fun little details - think spooky animal eyes hiding in the foliage, little lizards and insects tucked in a few spots.
