A humorous and inspirational illustration of an adventurous grey squirrel that decides to go skydiving. A lesson for us to live out our dreams and be as intrepid and daring as the squirrel.
Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?
I chose a North American squirrel because they are so common where I grew up. They were always in my backyard at home, and they even find their way onto fire escapes in New York City. I love squirrels because they are a bit quirky but amidst their preparations and storing nuts for the winter, they seem to be playing and having fun among the treetops.
What culture or region does the animal stand for?
I think that squirrels are now common everywhere, but this squirrel is originally indigenous to the eastern part of North America.
What story does your design tell?
My story is a simple tale of living life to the fullest and having adventures.
What style did you choose for your design and why?
I chose a simple flat graphic illustration style to tell my story, trying to put a bit more detail into the squirrel expression and face to show his personality.
