I was commissioned by the Cascadia Regatta Association to create a design for their regatta, medals, awards, t-shirts, and other merch. I came up with this design that I call “Circle of River Life”.
My goal was to create a circle of life-based around life near the water, displaying the elements and fauna that revolve around each other. From the bright sun highlighting the day, to the moon that lights up the night. The waves created by the wind are a playground for the otters fishing for their next meal. The salmon is a life source for not only the wildlife such as the bears, the otters, and the eagles, but also the land as the eagle drops the remains on the forest floor. What a beautiful experience it is to be near the water.
