London 2012 Olympics Aquatics Poster.
So this is the last poster I made for the London 2012 Olympics in my Independent Study, this time it's representing the Aquatics division of the games! Swimming competitively was a big part of my life from age 7 to 18, but after graduating from High School (and after serving 4 years on my school's varsity swim team) I knew I wasn't fast enough to have it really take me anywhere farther. Although I don't compete in swimming events anymore the sport is near and dear to my heart, so I was quite jazzed to work on this piece. The background features the London Eye, and the pattern used in this piece was based off of one found on this vintage English teapot.
