Travel Posters: Michigan

Well, it's taken me a little time to get this poster finished but here it is! I found this gorgeous photo of Mackinac Island whilst I was browsing Pinterest and thought it would make an interesting illustration as the colours were all lovely and vivid, and sometimes it's nice to take a break from pastels! I'm really enjoying creating these posters as it's a nice break from the pieces I typically work on - I hope you like them too! I'd love some more suggestions of places I can draw in the future if you enjoy seeing them. I think Tara suggested that I illustrate some of the Scandinavian countries so I think I'll do that next.

  9. Having just Googled away to see what Mackinac Island looks like, I think you've captured the essence of it perfectly! I love the more intense shades in this picture, it's nice to do something different occasionally and I think it gives you a refreshed view of your usual style when you get back to it :) keep them coming lovely! xxx
