Stuff for Snowbird
I recently finished a piece for Snowbird Ski Resort. It's part of a larger revamping of their ski program for children. The client asked for a clean look that wasn't "too Disney but not too loose, either".
Snowbird specified all the colors of the apparel. Since the resort started as a mine, all the children's ski area is miner-themed. Hence, the miner helmet and more rustic-looking ski boots. And lastly, this image had to be large enough to fit on the side of a van. So it's big. At 300 dpi, it's about 18" x 22".
I've never been much of a skier. Growing up in Arizona, I pretty much only ever went sledding down dirt hills. I've gone downhill skiing a grand total of once, and cross-country skiing once. I live in Utah and don't ski. What a travesty, huh?
