Year of the Dragon - Sydney

Townhall, George Street
Hello! Well here is my first outdoor illustration project. I was commissioned by the City of Sydney to design the dragon for the flags & street posters to celebrate Chinese New Year. There are 2 different designs on the flags, one with the full length of the dragon and one smaller horizontal dragon. Both designs come in opposite colours - red dragon yellow background and vice versa. I got a surprise when we popped into the city as I wasn't sure when the project would be launched.
Kings Cross
I'm extremely happy with the finished project - the quality of the posters and flags are mind blowing! It was so exciting to see them all around the city from Central, Townhall, Kings Cross, Haymarket and even on Erskineville Road (between Erskineville & Newtown). One of my favourites is seeing my flags around the iconic Coca-Cola sign in Kings Cross, I think I'll have to go back at night to take a shot when the sign is illuminated. All in all I'm very proud to add this one to my portfolio!
