See America - Everglades National Park by Skylar Francis

Design By:
I'm Skylar Francis, a Junior at Columbia College Chicago studying Illustration, and planning to continue on to obtain a Master's of Science in Biomedical Communications to become a Medical Illustrator. A lot of my work is traditionally done, and watercolor, colored pencil, and markers are my favorite mediums to work in. I've had a strong passion for art ever since I was a child, but never thought of it as a career until high school when I had the most amazing art teacher (Nick DiGioia) who taught me everything I know. I'm so grateful to have been his student because this is my true passion and I cannot wait to further my career.

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

For my class, Illustration Studio, we were assigned to create a National Park poster for the Creative Action Network campaign See America. I chose the Everglades National Park because my grandparents lived in Florida when they were still around, so my family and I would make trips every summer to the Everglades, so I have fond memories. For the traditional work, I used watercolor and colored pencil, then it was scanned in for digital rendering; I used Adobe Photoshop and Procreate. - Skylar Francis
