Last week an opportunity came up to do a few posters for the Off The Street Club here in Chicago. The OTSC is a youth group organization that helps 3,000 kids a year find a safe and constructive use of their time. Every year the OTSC organizes a toy drive to help each of these children have a Christmas that might otherwise not exist.
Working with two good friends of mine here at CK, CW Rich Black and AD John McKenzie, we came up with a way to show just how simple the dreams of these children must be. Then I went to town on the illustrations.
I illustrated these with a really simple, graphic style and the texture ended up in a great place, here's a little detail.
