elmwood zoo poster by strongstuff elmwood zoo poster by strongstuff
my family and i are members of the elmwood park zoo in norristown, pennsylvania, so i was excited when a fellow that works there (and was familiar with my colonial theatre work) contacted me to design a screenprint for the zoo's nature shop.

the posters release on august 18 and i'll be doing a signing there that day. if you're local, stop by and say "hey". the zoo has a gaggle of cool exhibits (prairie dogs!) and is especially great for the young'uns.

release info:
date: saturday, august 18
time: 11 am - 1 pm
elmwood park zoo
1661 harding blvd.
norristown, PA 19401

print info:
size: 18" x 24"
medium: 3-color screenprint on french speckletone 80# cover
edition: limited, 200

I like this very very much. Above all the composition - and particularly the ingenious use of the shapes of the animals - but also quite a few of the animals are hilarious if you look closely, while others are awesomely serious.

Oh, I really wish I'd lived closer when this event took place... a signed and framed print of this would look gorgeous! As it is, I'm content to stare at it on my computer screen. c:

Everything about this poster is suitable for the intended purpose. The natural colours are easy on the eyes, you've worked countless animals into a design without cluttering the space, and the lineart is so attractive! Great job!

I love the geometric linework you integrated into this design. The animal anatomies remind of the zoological works by Charlie Harper!

This is mindbending! :eyepopping: Zoos bring all kinds of animals to one place, and you captured that in your poster. Makes me want to go and visit the critters :)

Nice work. Would make one heck of a desktop wallpaper. Though, so would everything else you put together.
