This award-winning digital illustration was created for Japan Day at Central Park, an annual event organized by the Japanese community of New York to promote a deeper understanding of Japanese culture through colorful celebrations in Central Park each May.
The main objectives of this design were to capture three major themes: New York, Japan, and Central Park. The artwork had to be easily transferable to other collateral material such as a t-shirt design for the New York Road Runners, event invitations, banners, and digital promotions. This piece was displayed at the Japan Day celebrations as well as at the Consulate General of Japan in New York.
