IF Hierarchy/SCBWI Poster Part 4

Update: I'm repurposing this post for the Illustration Friday topic Hierarchy. Thanks to Chuck Dillon for suggesting I submit this illustration; it's perfectly appropriate!

Original Post: Here's the finished poster for this weekend's NESCBWI conference poster competition. Overall, I'm happy with the results and I think it's a good representation of my style and sense of humor.

I'm looking forward to the weekend and the opportunity to mingle with other artists (& authors), learn something new, get inspired and maybe meet some folks (editors, art directors) that can give me some work!

I like it, it reminds me of one of the Russian Matroska dolls. Each animal is about to meet it's untimely demise. I guess the owl ends up being the lucky one.

Love it!! Truly. My son would say disturbing, but would intend it as a compliment.

Beautiful, Robert! Great color!

I can't help but imagine the fly is singing, "Hello my baby, hello my darlin', hello my ragtime gal!"

Lovely. It turned out very well.

Great colors, composition, and poses, The fly and grasshopper are my favorites. It's no surprise that this poster won an award at the SCBWI conference. Congrats!
