Poster Ideas..

So over the weekend I came up with a few sketches for a poster design. I am trying to go for something different when it comes to the sports aspect of the poster. For example, everyone has the standard person jumping off the ski jump, or an ice skater doing a trick as they capture that moment and throw it onto the poster. I want to have more of a look of anticipation or a sense of focus that we see in the athlete's eyes. That look of determination, which I think is what really is what the Olympics is all about. We aren't all just born with the ability to run fast, we have to practice and get better at it.

Last week I had a few sketches already done for class, and Joe really liked the one where I had just focused in on a skiers face. So all you see is half of their reflective goggles and a slight bit of their face. But not enough to really say if who you were looking at was either male or female. And that's something I kind of want to get across. That what you are looking at could be anyone, maybe even the viewer if they desire to. I'll have my roughs up when I get home. In the mean time, what does everybody think?

I think it is a refreshing take from the typical torch or depicting a type of sporting event. The fact that the sex isn't obvious is a plus. Good luck!
