This illustration is for Swedish music festival SandvikFest 2014.
The music festival is in a rural location, beside a lake and some woods, and it was part of the brief to include the location in the illustration. The image is going to be printed on fabric and had to be not too complex and drawn only in black and white.
The theme of this year's SandvikFest is flowers, and I wanted to incorporate this theme in to the image as well. However it was a struggle to draw the foliage without any tonal areas, and below are some experiments at trying to draw detailed foliage while keeping the drawings bold:
On last year's SandvikFest illustration, I went a bit overkill with the detail and not all of it printed out clearly. Hopefully this year's illustration will come out in full.
