This poster was a finalist in a poster design contest for an International Student Art Exhibition in Lacoste, France. This character captures the spirit, rich history, and artistic energy of Lacoste, a medieval village nestled in the southern mountains of Provence.
This sculpture was my first experiment with hair that was not made of clay. I had to figure out out how to adhere the yarn to the scalp and jaw of my character. through this process, I've created my own technique that I have employed on all of my illustrations since.
