Poster for Similarities, a fictional non-profit organization.
The concept behind Similarities is to show how humans and other species are alike, how we feel, have emotion, attachments to others, and even families. This series focused on wolves.
I kept the illustrations as simple line-drawings to focus on the expression and emotion instead of race or color.
To clarify, the word "species" is plural. I have respect for all creatures, not just wolves. It sadness me that all species are declining in number.
My initial concept was to include multiple animals in this series. But this was a class assignment, and my college instructor told me that multiple animals would be inconsistent. She told me to pick one animal for the series. When I started this assignment about a year ago, wolves were taken off the endangered species list, and were almost immediately hunted for sport. So wolves became the focus after suggestions from my college instructor and a lot of extra thought.
In my first sketches, I think I only wanted to have the wolves on the billboard. Now, I hope no one else has a problem with the series only focusing on wolves. It wasn't entirely my choice.
